It has been over 3 months since I shadowed the pages of SparkPeople.com... with any intention of trying to grab hold the "superfasttrain" that seems to be speeding by on the weight loss tracks. I cannot, for the life of me, even think of a reason why I would ever step away from my task and obligations here. Repositioning my brain and spirit to the commitment I must make to be successful at SP has been a struggle... and why is it that my brain cannot comprehend that I AM NOT ALONE on this journey??
"I have often walked down this street before..." like a deja vu experience... yet, I am waiting for a new outcome... but not if I keep doing the same things I have been, that's for sure!
Just for today, I will record my food...I need to get a grasp on what I have been eating...I need to find that food monster and coach him back into his cage...I did it before...I know I can do it again. If losing weight is the objective, instead of losing scruples, then I really have to inventory my current habits and realign them with the successful program Chris D has laid out so very beautifully here. I can't wait until tomorrow... today is the only sure time I will have. If I remember correctly, blog entry is a great tool...
and so I begin... once again...

Okay, so I survived yesterday, my today, yesterday, meant working the pieces of my day a little bit at a time... I did not get my food logged, but I did not go overboard on any thing I ate...and in fact, I am pretty sure (by my calibration in my brain) that I stayed well within my calorie range.
Today I sank to the depths of having a healthy breakfast, a wonderful salad at lunch...and a candy bar...or was it two?....but still I am in a good place for Today. and fruit and veggies for dinner will only make me feel better.
I work my program, I tell myself, one day at a time. Today however, I worked my program one food decision at a time. Good, bad, no judgement, no guilt and basically no thrill when I chose chocolate over yogurt. I walked for 30 minutes at lunch time and that was good... the parking structure where I work is covered, so the rain did not bother me. I took the stairs to the 4th level and started down from there...perhaps tomorrow I will go the other direction. :)
I promised myself that I would blog the truth and work on me another day in a row (that's two)... and I did. So help me, God, that a third day granted will not be taken for granted, I will do my best to avoid the chocolate choice and make good water and food decisions.
Today was just that.... today... and the only day I had to make good choices... I hate that I am human and weak, but I am glad that I have SP to come to to help me with making a plan for good choices on my next today.

TODAY is my priority... Just today.
Today I walked at lunch time... I spent time eating the things that are good for me and I read a little.... This is how I started when I first came to SP...
I am walking back to my basics... recording my food ... making rest a priority, and feeling pretty good about .... Today. Yep, just Today... for this is the day that God gave me to try to make better choices... and Today has been a good day for those better choices. Someone asked me about tomorrow...and I said... Today, today is the day I am working on... I cannot work on my tomorrows until I have today taken care of...and that is my priority... TODAY.
One Day At A Time... Today.
