Error 404: "BOO's Right Mind" Not Found

Monday, November 21, 2011

Please be patient while we work on resolving this issue. It's possible the owner has removed or replaced the file. Please try again, later. We are sorry for the inconvenience.

Sound familiar? We never search for information very long before running into those "Error 404" notices, and they ARE annoying. In this case, however, I am pleased to report that I believe "Boo's Right Mind" has been located.

I have rebooted my mental computer and the new "Boo's Right Mind" file is up and running, at least for today. I will begin tomorrow's tasks by getting on the scale, and sending the data straight to my SP ticker.

Here's a bit of history on how the previous file was damaged.

I'm not sure what my deal was. However, here's what happened. I stopped posting, weighing, tracking, working out, etc. for several weeks. I was out of sync.

Last week I forgot to meet friends for a show I had wanted to see. Trying to come up with a reasonable explanation for my huge senior moment, I told DH that I was doing too much, to which he replied, "BABY, HOW COULD YOU DO ANY LESS?"

I laugh every time I think about it because it's a pretty accurate assessment. I would forget what day it was, since my schedule was not chock full like it once was.

I have skipped workouts and even tap classes, which I love. I always wear the Bodybugg, since it takes no effort. I didn't track food or step on the scale. And when I didn't weigh, I would feel fat and eat accordingly.

I practiced my piano and made efforts to continue ridding the house of belongings we don't need. I worked on my genealogy files as a distraction, I think, from more productive tasks. Angry Birds games were another great distraction to help me avoid work..

I felt guilty about my behaviour and ate more than I wanted. I really relate to comments from a SparkFriend who talked about needing to get her headspace cleared. I think all of my little things may have added up and created a need for a mental rest. I didn't feel up to talking to my friends.

I am hoping that I am ready to get back into my groove. I will be attending tap class tomorrow, for starters. And I have joined a 3-day Turkey Strut Dance Challenge on the "Dark Side of Spark People" Team, aimed at 10,000 steps daily until Thanksgiving. TAZZIE's Challenges are lots of laughs, which I could use right now.

I want to thank everyone who sent me notes and goodies during my absence. Thanks for caring. YINZ (plural of you) are the best!"

    Thanks, Slopoke and Tina. I stepped on the scale, and the weight was 165, a gain of 3.1 lbs. It felt worse, when I didn't know the amount. Task #1 completed. Tap class is next.

    Glad you're back! Dieting and exercising are hard work and sometimes we just need a break from it all to reboot and refocus. Although calories and movement are important, a lot of staying on track is also psychological--and if you're not in the right place mentally, it's just not going to happen. You've had you're time off, so now it's back to work and continuing to meet your goals!
