Oh, Spark, why do I always lose you??
I have been B. A. D. Bad for the last month. I went on vacation, turned another year older, lost my spark, and didn't know where to find it :(
Almost exactly one month ago, I was in Key West - feeling pretty good that I kept up on my workouts and developed some lean muscle. I looked pretty good in my tank tops and halter dresses. So I ate. A lot. Of really fabulous food! And drank. A lot. Of delightful pina coladas pool side, and other delightful tropical beverages while I partied and celebrated my dear friend's wedding.
I came home knowing that I needed to get back on track, feeling the alcohol bloat. Then my grandfather got really sick, quite suddenly. So I started in on some emotional eating. When I had to go back to Utah unexpectedly for the funeral a few days later, I ate and ate and ate...and also drank. With the family.
And again I came home knowing that I needed to get back on track, feeling even more alcohol and/or Tex-Mex bloat. But my 31st birthday was only a few days away...so I ate more and drank more. Feeling tired, unmotivated, all around crappy.
My sister and brother-in-law came to town last weekend - we had another fabulous time! I'm so glad they could come out to stay for a long weekend! But of course, what did we do? Watch the Cardinals in the World Series. Drink, a lot. Eat, a lot.
Now I'm back. Back on Spark. Back to what I know is a WAY healthier lifestyle. Back to wanting to be healthy, happy, and fit.
I actually picked up The Spark and re-read parts of it yesterday, trying to find my Spark again. I thought about the goals I set earlier this year, and how I really haven't met many of them...yet. I read the Fast Break chapter, and it hit me - Hey, I've done this before. It felt great! I'm going to do it again!!!!
So, for me, it's Fast Break Week.
Watch out, Spark. Here I come!
Goals for the week:
1. Drink at least 8 glasses of water per day.
2. Get at least 10 minutes of fitness every day.
3. Read an inspirational quote and/or my fitness goals one time per day.
I'm also going to track my food this week and look for ways to improve.
I can do this!
