its been a while....

Tuesday, August 09, 2011

I have been up and down, wanting to do well, but struggling. I realised I had not blogged in a while and this is why-
1. I hate negativity- like Thumper's mom siad in the movie Bambi-" if you don't have anything nice to say dont say nothin at all>" so I have been feeling a little negative and ticked with myself, and stressed and a little (slightly) out of controll. And I did not want to talk about it.
2. It's embarassing to fail- and I feel like I have- I gained back 20 of the 30 lbs I lost.
3. I was wallowing a bit- it was a stressful year helathwise, workwise and otherwise, so I let the little hungry thing in my head say "I deserve this (cookie, chips, chocolate), because I have been so stressed out.

Ok here I am - August is not an easy month for me- It marks the anniversaries of when my brother, uncle and grandfather died (all seperate years). I am a litle blue, a little tired and a lot disgusted with myself.
On a positive note, I am determined to do something to fix the way I am feeling. I have already started to change my eating habbits and get out and exercise everyday. I am making plans for a family beach day and a girls day away. I did this before, I can do it again.

    So happy to see you on my friend feed today!
Don't beat yourself up for what has passed - you've taken a positive step forward by blogging again. Let it go and move on.
Enjoy the family beach day and girls' get-away!

    Hello! You haven't failed, you simply got off track. Failure would be a complete abandonment of all your good habits (including Spark People), and I don't see that you've done that.


Cut yourself some slack and get back in the swing of good habits and healthy routines. It's easier than you might think - one step at a time - and the rewards are yours for the taking.
