Stress, backsliding, ... not gonna give up.
Monday, August 17, 2009
So the last half of last week was a write-off.
There was some minor stress with family members coupled with changes in my normal day (picnics in the park, eating out, barbecues at friend's houses, ... ). I'm also starting to gear up for back to school which brings a whole range of emotions with it. Tracking didn't happen, sparking didn't happen, and poor eating habits certainly did.
What's even worse is I had a big rah-rah, I'm going to have a great week blog last week.
BUT, it was a couple of days. Not weeks or months. And I'm not going to let it be one day more. I haven't gotten on the scale to see what damage was done, if any. I am standing tall, facing my demons of cravings, negative self-talk, and loss of momentum and saying "Back off! Not this time, bucko!"
I've fallen off the spark wagon before. A year from now I want to be able to say that I wobbled a few times, but I didn't fall down. Not that I lost all my momentum and motivation again.
I'm in this for the long haul.
