So, here it is. I took 1 week off of work (all 3 jobs) because my daughter had spring break. I was doing just fine with maintaining my good habits I had acquired while using SP the past 2 1/2 months. That is, I was doing fine until Thursday. Thursday came and it all went out the window. I know that it does not mean that I have failed or that I cannot get back to where I was. I am just frustrated with myself because I was on such a nice ride! My momentum was at a good clip and now, I am pretty confident, that I have screwed it up. I weigh in on Monday and I am prepared to accept that my scale may go backwards. It will be very sad, but I am prepared.
I have devised a plan to get myself back on track and hopefully create that awesome momentum (or maybe even more) that I had before I lived dangerously. I am simply going to follow my spark to the T. I have not done that yet. I expect that I will see some phenomenal results and regain that oh-so-good feeling that I had before.
Though I am slightly disappointed in myself I also appreciate the lesson I have learned. Not only must I face the scale and the wrath it will have on me, but my body is loudly telling me that what I did was wrong. Talk about extreme lethargy and bloating unbelievable. Then there is constipation to boot. Obviously the food choices I made were not good for me in many different ways. Yet, this is great motivation, I will take it. It is the good swift kick in the butt that I need and am going to use it as best I can.
So, here I go, no turning me back. This is going to be fun, watch me go!!!!!

    Way to pay attention to your body emoticon The key note here is that you are aware of it and doing something about it!!
emoticon We all have our "set-backs"...I'm thinking to the future of MN STATE FAIR~CHEESE CURDS!!! Be good to yourself and don't worry about "hick-ups" on the way. It's when you completely loose your way--that's when you worry!

Stick with it/us! I know you can~cuz you are STRONG emoticon

    It is amazing what our bodies will tell us. My stomach hates me when I make poor choices and I feel dizzy and weak wen I am not properly hydrated.

I applaud you for listening to your body.

Make this a new day 1. There is nothing wrong with starting fresh. Every little step brings you closer to the goal. Just don't ever stop!

You can do this :) I know you can!
