Falling off the Horse is easy to do:
OK I admit this last week has been tough. First, It was my TOM which always has me feeling like a bottomless pit. Second, It was Easter/Spring break and I was home for a week entertaining guests and visiting the refrigerator way too often. Then of course the BIG Easter feast. Thirdly, my teenager son had decided to purposely fail most of his senior year courses so of course we had to administer "Tough Love" Since dealing with teenagers is stressful I felt the urge to eat more to make me feel better but all I suceeded in doing was to make myself feel worse.
Getting Back on is tough but it needs to be done:
Now that Easter break is over and I have returned to work and all of my guests have gone home I can get back into a routine. I threw out all the leftover cake, cheesecake, cookies and sent the Easter baskets to my kids rooms. Their rooms are a disaster so I know I'll stay away from it while it is in there. I started back on my exercise program by using my treadmill tonight and I plan to do so each night this week to elliminate the excess weight gain from this past week. I also joined a small group of SparkTeam members in a "loose 3 pounds this week challenge" It was what I needed to get back on that horse. Wish me luck! I need all the encouragement I can get to stay motivated. I want to do this. I need to do this. :)
