Back on the horse

Tuesday, July 28, 2009

Well...this weekend sure was a lot of fun but MAN-Oh-MAN did I overdo it. Overdid eating, DRINKING (Oh.My!!!), playing...pretty much everything but sleeping so yesterday was a lost day for me. I had to take a day off to recharge my batteries - included an almost two-hour nap - and today I am feeling much better.

The scales, sadly but not surprisingly, reflect all the over-indulgence, but I will NOT let this completely derail me. I will - as my mother used to say - "get back on the horse that threw me" and ride again. I will try to learn a lesson from this little side-track. I will because I can, and I want to. Perhaps that is the most important thing of all.

Good cause

Tuesday, July 21, 2009

I am soooooo tired...not really sure why but I did get up early and run on the treadmill, worked all day and then spent 4 hours this evening volunteering to benefit my youngest child's after school program (stuffing goodie bags for the athelete's in the upcoming IronMan race in town this weekend). I was on my feet the whole time...OH, NOW I KNOW WHY I'M SO TIRED!

The right track

Monday, July 20, 2009

I am feeling like I'm getting back on the right track - at last. In fact tonight after dinner, and feeling very full I tracked my food and I am UNDER in calories and a few other nutrients so I'll have to dream up a nice healthy dessert / snack before bed! The kids and I even went for an awesome walk (!) after dinner instead of settling in to our lazy evening schedule. Yesssss...I can feel the GOOD habits returning, and I LIKE IT!

Commitment

Wednesday, July 15, 2009

Commitment...what is it about committing that gets us all excited and energetic and revved up? I find it easy (sometimes) to be juiced about a cause and to sign on with all engines but then the excitement fades and the new becomes old and it's hard to keep the energy level high and before you know it I'm un-committed.

Well, my new gig is that I'm committing to being committed. I am going to nurture the excitement and the energy and try to remind myself every day why I am committing to the cause. And I am hopeful that I can outlive the doldrums and keep the fires burning.

Let the streak begin!
