The Road to Success has big hills and valleys. There are rock, potholes. Along the path there are people who will try to steal my health. I will pass restaurants that smell so good. I will walk pass people eating cakes and cookies. There are so many things along the Road to Success.
Last week I was going through one of those bumpy places. Work was too busy. I was getting home at 8:30pm and leaving in the morning around 7am. I was tired. How easy it was to go back to bad habits. I would come home from work hungry and tired.
Did I reach for salad? No No No Ice Cream was the comfort food.
Did I get up to exercise at 4:45am? no I slept until 6am.
Did I feel better? No
I am glad I was able to see the damage I was doing.
Did I gain weight yes.
But Saturday I was at the top of the hill and I started walking down the right path.
Back to Basics
1) write in my journal
2) eat between 1200-1500 cals
Everyday is a new day to get back on the Road to Success. I am glad that I have friends that are walking the same Road as I am. My Spark Friends and TOPS Friends are there to encourage me to take the right path every step of the way.
