We can't always jump in where we left off...

Saturday, August 21, 2010

With a funeral 1300 miles away and lots of plans before, traveling during, and catching up afterward... I was not able to keep up with everything on Spark People. I missed it, but knew that when life settled down, I would jump back in with no trouble...

BUT, let me give a little bit of advice... don't expect to be able to jump back into something full steam after we have been away for several weeks. We almost have to take a few steps back, just so we don't get discouraged when everything does not happen like it did and like we think it should! Originally, we started out with small goals, and built upon them.

It has been discouraging at times, but I keep reminding myself, that I need to just take a step back, breath deeply, and then move forward with what I can do!!

    Sooooooo true!! I thought the same thing! I was doing so well and we went away for a couple weeks. I had almost finished C25K when we left and I thought I would come home and finish it......hahaha! Well that didn't happen! Now I am struggling just to start it again!! UGH But you are right I just have to step back and take a deep breath but stay focused!! Thanks for the reminder! Hope things are going well for you and you are having a wonderful week! emoticon
