I put the title in speech marks because mid-week i saw a blog title somewhere here that said the same. And i thought "YEP, that's what i'm doing right now!!" Heh! So i put it in those in case the author drops by here and sues me for copyright or something...
So yeah i paused my healthy lifestyle for a week. Well 6 days, i happily counted up before. Meh i tend to do this every now and again. Sometimes sooner than planned/expected. I suppose it's part of just the way i am and it's best to accept it that beat myself up about it!!
I got on the scale this morning for a sneak peak and i'd gained quite a bit, as expected because i had zero workouts and lots and lots of silly food!
Oh wells, i am back to it on Tuesday. Eating right that it, i'm already back to working out. I BodyRocked this morning and it was fantastic! Ah, being covered in sweat and pushing to the limit... fabulous. =D Another one in the morning!
So again I am left with people i need to catch up with (I'm sorry!) and my protein arrived, still waiting on my coconut oil, aaaand what else? Back to good foods on Tuesday. I promise MYSELF!

Heh thought i better do a little blog just to update myself.
So i was back to work this past Monday. This is my weekend to work so i also had the bank hol Friday to work, plus i'm working through until next Thursday. Talk about being a workaholic?
We have next years holiday booked (no waiting around hey?) so i'm really excited to have something to work for and keep myself in check for. I finally realised whilst i was away what i love about life, what i want in life and what i want from myself. My hobby is travelling, anywhere, everywhere. I love new countries, cities, places, anything. I love visiting places and i have decided this is going to be a big part of my life - seeing the world. I suppose it already has been, but now i'm actually aware of it haha.
Also being physically active is something i realised i loved. I got kinda.... um, moody... no not moody, kinda down on myself the last week of my holiday. I know now that this was down to my physical activity going down to zero for the second part of my holiday. I am so passionate about BodyRocking right now and i really think this is going to stick. I want to be BodyRocking when i'm 30,40,50, just for the fun of it, for the enjoyment, and of course, to stay healthy!
So i'm back to clean eating (squeeky clean actually - i think i've MISSED it haha) and a good workout routine. I feel good about myself and i think i'm high on life at the moment. Things are good right now in all aspects of my life, so i am thankful and willing to do what's in my power to keep it that way.
A note to end on - I'm so blown away right now by my Spark Family. All my fantastic Spark Friends who take the time to come to my page, to read blogs, to look at new photo's, to take the time to leave comments/advice/jokes/love for me to read... i think if it wasn't for SparkPeople i would still think the world was full of mean horrible and crappy people.... but SparkPeople gives me hope! There are such amazing people all over the world.... getting together here and sharing the love. It gives me such a warm feeling in my belly.

Ok so i just learned a valuable lesson - all by myself.
Positivity may not always be there, but to make and keep our lives positive, sometimes we have to look for and find that positivity ourselves. It just so happens that negativity is so damn easy to find, that sometimes we have to soldier on and push past the negs to find those good ol' positives!!
I had a busy day at work. Worked late last night. Work is so busy right now... we don't usually get busy until May/June! I was sooo happy to see a new BodyRock workout go up and knew i had it then scheduled for tonight.
I got home from work all "blah" and was kinda like "Nope, i am NOT working out - i am relaxing i'm so so tired!!" so i moaned to the Darling (he really is) and he's like "No you're not, you're getting changed and you're doing your exercise" =) Bless him. That means SO much to me that even if the persuasion isn't working so much, the sweetness pushes me to go get changed into workout clothes.
Anywho's i did the workout. Ouch. It was SO HARD. So so hard, i actually wanted to CRY. It wasn't even that tough on paper but i just couldn't catch my breath... couldn't find the push inside me.
So i finished it and moped around, showered, got all blah. Thought about leaving a blog about how disappointed i am in myself. I read some recent comments on my last blog... people being so... awesome to me. I decided against posting a negative blog - once again i am lifted by my fantastic Spark Friends. You guys are encouraging me and egging me on - i don't need to come here and moan about myself!
That's when it struck me!! Ok i did poo at the workout and knew deep down i could do better. What's the positive? I DID the workout. THAT'S the positive! I wasn't even gonna try but i DID, i was gonna be lazy and do NOTHING but no, i atleast had a go and i elevated my metabolism.
So, things could be worse.
