I must say that although I consider myself a very laid-back person, changes for the most part throw me off kilter. As of 2.5 weeks ago I as busy with graduation preparations for my daughter, plus getting ready for family invasion (which I love, since we don't get to have my extensive family together very often). All this to say, my exercise routine as well as my eating routine were a bit hard to maintain. After the weekend was over I realized I had committed the unpardonable sin, I had cake...several times over the span of at least three days. Guilt-ridden I tried unsuccessfully to get back on that wagon. End of week weigh-in showed almost a 1.5 lb. shift upward. OUCH! I chastised myself, it was my own doing, but what was really bothering me was....Goodness even after all those months of "painfully" acquiring better habits, it was extremely easy to fall off that wagon. Oh no! To top all of that, I started working, no not working at home, this time I actually get a paycheck for doing what I do. As happy as I was for the change, doom lurked in the fringes of my mind, WHAT ABOUT MY ROUTINE?!!!! My exercise routine now has changed to the evenings, which leave me exhausted, my eating habits are actually easier to maintain since I have to prepare what I take to work, but even my personal devotions have changed. I DON'T WANT CHANGE. My head tells me change is good, but my body resists. I'm working on a routine that I can stick to now. This morning at my weekly weigh-in I was pleasantly surprised, not only did I lose the offending lb. gained prior, but I also managed to lose 1.59 more on top of that. Sooooo I'm back on track, treading carefully and realizing that changes although they may be good, should be approached with a laid out plan.
