Wow--has it really been so long...

Wednesday, September 01, 2010

...Since I blogged?

I was determined to stay on track, and I let down after vacation. Does anyone else need a vacation to get over their vacation???

I truly must get it back in gear and go FORWARD. I lost 2 pounds on the 10/10/10 challenge and then I heard a (small--but that's no excuse) bag of potato chips call my name...

...and I answered the call. But---one bag won't knock me over. I just need to get back to:

* tracking my nutrition every day

* moving more (I'm using my pedometer) even when I don't officially "exercise"

* blogging!! I do MUCH better when I know my friends are checking up on me, so the accountability factor is huge on this journey

* and one new goal--GET OVER MYSELF!!!!

Everything that happens is not a Crisis or a reason for Drama. Life just throws some curveballs at times, and I have to learn to deal with them. Easier said than done, but from now on I am finished with:

* perfectionism

* denial

* negativity

...and I am retiring my Traffic Police badge; getting cut off in traffic is an opportunity to bless someone, not to let myself get upset!

Life keeps giving me reasons to stay on my knees; obviously I need to accept that.

Theme song for today:

Back in the Saddle Again!!!

    Apparently, I need to follow your goals, too, because I've not been around much myself since you were on vacation! Hope you had a great time on that cruise. Oh, and the traffic police comment -- how I can relate to that one! Scoot over sweetie because I need to be on my knees, too!

    I LOVE your positive attitude! The" traffic cop" thing is soooo funny, I need to tell my hubby to do the same! I have only been sparking a few weeks but I look to my new sparkfriends for inspiration and you certainly are an inspiration.

    I love your Get Over Myself goal....could use a little bit of that myself! Good luck on your goal and getting back in the saddle again! And maybe try an MP3 player and some earbuds to block out the sound of those potato chips calling. Sometimes works for me!
