I found new motivation

Sunday, October 03, 2010

I have fallen away from sparking over the past month. I didn't mean to, but the time seemed to be filled with new commitments, working a part-time job, and my continued job search.

I accepted a job a week ago which will begin in 3 weeks. I just realized that means I have three weeks before my new work ID photograph will be taken. I have three weeks before I am going to be on the road endlessly for at least two months. I have three weeks before I will be held up in a hotel out of town for 2 months. That means I have three weeks to get back into good habits. This is my new motivation.

Today I did not get back to tracking calories and I'm sure that I overate, at least it feels like I did. I did walk, not long, but I did it. My other activity revolved around caring for grand kids and cleaning house. I doubt that I used up many calories but I was too busy to eat.

    Way to keep a positive outlook. I am sure the next three weeks will present themselves with lots of opportunities to stay busy and work at it. May you be blessed with a persevering and committed heart. Good luck! emoticon

    Hey, don't be so hard on yourself. You are back at it, and that is half the battle!

    Keep at it. Small but consistent steps. You sound like you have the starting of a good plan, and thats half the battle.
