Two Steps Forward, Four Steps Back??


Monday, July 02, 2012

I went up over two pounds in the last week or so. As I have been trying to prepare for a vacation, I have been working 15 hour days and not being able to get my workouts, food planning and preparation, and even water consumption, done the way i need to. And it shows right away on the scale. I am a bit worried about being away from home where I have even less control of my environment.

But I have to remind myself that I have the tools and I have the ability to do this. I can keep going. I have 40 pounds to lose to goal and I will get there!

    Disruptions to our usual routine can be tough to manage. Hang in there. Even if you have a small detour on your journey, you know how to get back on track. It isn't how fast we're traveling, it's that we're headed in the right direction!

    We really never know how we'll do until we're faced with that challenge! You said it right, you have all the tools you need to succeed...and I know you have the motivation. Get a nice long walk in each day before you get going with your activities...you'll feel more in control and it will help you keep on track! Have a beautiful vacation!

    It's a work-in-progress for many if not all of us. When away from home, just guesstimate your food intake. emoticon

    You CAN do this! Try to be as active as you can while you're away. That may help balance out some extra calories. And have fun!
