Life is full of ups and downs

Well here I am again. Where did my willpower go? Has anybody seen it? I have ate horrible this week. Seriously. Why would I do this after being so thrilled at Onederland last week?

My grandma had colon surgery this week.
My kids are on Spring Break.
My husband started on dayshift and although I love it, it is different actually being able to eat dinner/go out for dinner.
My mother in law fell and broke her arm last week, adding extra worry and stress.

These are just a few of the excuses I've told myself this week while I was being lazy and eating crap. This morning I have finally told myself that it is bull. Life is full of things that are going to be hard. You have to be strong. Food is not going to make you feel any better. Yes it is comforting, but the sugary junk is also deceiving. It is out to hurt you even more.
It is going to try and destroy all your hard work and effort. Put you further down in the rut wanting you to stay there.

But guess what? You do not have to stay there. You can pull yourself out. What I'm realizing fast about myself is..

So this morning, I am writing you with a clear head. Without guilt because today IS a new day. A chance to make up for yesterdays mistakes, because most of the time that is what they are. I am not perfect, after 16 months on this journey I am finally going to stop beating myself up for not being just that.

I'm realizing that this is a lifestyle change, but also the life around you is going to change. You have to adjust. If you have to tweak your schedule here and there for whatever reason, do it!

I am ready to do it right this week.
