Trying to get back on track

Sunday, February 21, 2010

I just had the most amazing trip! I went to see my husband for 10 days after 8 months apart. Being back in Egypt was amazing - and I realized just how much it feels like home to me. It's not that nothing had changed, it's just that the changes didn't seem to matter. I had a wonderful time with my husband - the whole thing was unbelievable.

And then on Monday night I came home. I did really well on my vacation. But I left Egypt with a lot of emotion, and came home to a very busy, very stressful time at work. Between all the different points of tension in my life, I've spent the last 5 days eating worse than ever. So much for my confidence that I had addressed my issues of emotional eating. Cheesies, chocolate, cheese in quantity, fried food. All those things I had learned to moderate or remove from my diet.

And now I'm struggling to get back on track. I need to keep moving this forward. I got so many great comments when I was in Egypt, and it felt so good to be active and healthy. It's time to reign this in and get going again. I've already done great things - it's time to do some more!

The problem is that I sound more confident than I feel.

    Hang in there. I believe you can do because you did it the first time. God believe's you can do it because He helped you the first time. Now it's your turn to believe you can do it and just do it.

    Many Blessings,

    I am going through the same thing.

    What I have done is go back to the basics. Track food drink water, return to solid ground.

    Good luck we all go through this, you know what to do, just make the same steps you did when you first joined, and you will be back on track sooner than you know it.
