I know I have a one track mind. I have to focus on one thing at a time, because if I don't I will spread myself too thin and nothing will be accomplished. At the start of the year my focus was on Sparkpeople and losing weight, eating right and doing my exercise. It was easy.
Then came rush hour at work. I have two extreme deadlines at work each year and I know I will be completely of this world for two or three weeks. Afterwards I will be pooped for another week and so... swoosh.. another month will be over before I know.
Last three weeks was this month. Packed with stress and familiy related matters, food intake, exercise and keeping track was not something I could fit in worrying about.
I know my habits have become healthier, because during the day I would eat pretty healthy. I did not gain any weight in contrast to other year's deadlines.
I am not discouraged. I was just on hold. It's oke. Life happens and I can beat myself up over it, or expect way too much of myself, set my bar way too high and miserably fail at the end. Or I can lower expectations, trust myself to get back on track again and cut myself some slack.
I just did that. Tonight I will start by going to bed early. It's neccesary and if that all that fits today, I will do that. We'll see what we can fit in tomorrow, maybe even cycling to work. (Oh I remember, I have a curling workshop, this should be great fun :)) And I'll go slow and pick up the pieces where I left them.
I can do this, go me :)!
