291 day streak broken

Saturday, October 13, 2012

I forgot to spin the log on wheel yesterday after 291 days of consistency. This kills me. Well, no, that is an overstatement but it makes me mad. First I forget to meet a friend for lunch and then I go and do that. Not sure what is up with me. What can I learn from this? Any ideas, please send them on.
I did not think my life was that distracting. Yes, we were busy trying to solve RV issues while camping and my spouse was frustrated but that should not have done it. I have driven miles in the past just to get internet to keep this streak going and then I blow it on a day where I had even been on the computer earlier, not online, but the computer was on!

I am trying hard to find some positives in this.... please add some with a comment if anyone sees something else in it.
- maybe I was getting too compulsive?
- maybe I need to renew my vow to SparkPeople type of thing like they do with wedding vows?
- maybe it just means it was good to get away from the grind and really did loose myself working on the RV and then doing camping stuff?
- maybe I was not meant to reach the 300 day "go zip - lining " goal I set for myself?

Well today is day one again for log ons and I will start again. At least I have had a few days without candy so maybe that is a more important streak. Who knows.

Any other people see a positive side to having to start a streak again after almost a year? emoticon
- Maybe I need to learn to laugh and not take myself so seriously? emoticon

    That is too bad, I know how you feel when you break a streak! I have done that a couple times with other things-get frustrated/mad and then move on.
    I almost broke my spinning the wheel streak a few weeks ago and it was 2 minutes to midnight! I had been on SP earlier just like you had been...sometimes we get in a hurry, got bogged down with day to day stuff and it just slips our mind. My streak is 752 days as of today! I would feel just like you if I broke it, but at least you made it that long! Keep going -the next one will be longer! Keep sparking and being committed to all of your goals & streaks in your healthy lifestyle changes! emoticon
    Thanks for stopping by my blog last week!! emoticon emoticon

    You are still a winner! You have gone out of your way to keep your streak going and all that means is you are committed to your healthy life style changes. One day is not a deal breaker! Celebrate! You are my hero! emoticon

    Don't be so hard on yourself. Don't beat yourself up. Just remember not to sweat the small stuff. Keep an eye on the real prize; getting healthy. emoticon

    That's a bummer. I have yet to get even close to that number of consecutive days. I kick myself when I miss a day or two but just look at it as a wake-up call and a reminder that life happens. The beauty is that the new streak starts today and this next one will be the best ever. Good luck!
