Rude Awakening

Monday, November 26, 2012

I have not blogged in a while. I have struggled with tracking. I have not been drinking my water. I have been really sporadic with the gym visits and with the running. I've been sporadic with my Sparking. I have struggled daily and nightly with the food fest that is "Hallo-Giving-Mas" which runs from October 31 until January 1.

And the weight loss task master (AKA the scale) has been kind...or at least indifferent...up until this morning.

It kicked me in the pants with a 5 lb bounce up from the 196lbs I had recorded several months ago. I know. I'm first person in the history of the world to have this happen to them, right? How unfair!

So...I'm raising my 64 oz glass of lemon water to "away from" motivation (which was the very first topic of my very first blog post back in May 14 of this year!) and I'm running (literally and figuratively) away from that rude wake up call. emoticon

    It is a hard time of year.

I too have slipped up lately.

Vowing to get my tail to the gym and get back on track.

We should stalk each other.

Light and Love emoticon

    Yup, you can do this. I am picturing myself just barely squeaking onto Spark Santa's "nice list" after spending the last week oblivious to my body's needs. There's room for you too- no lumps of coal for Triangle Woman!

    On a positive could have been worse! I know that when I start making excuses to not stand on the scale I'm probably headed in the wrong direction. And since I weigh in the mornings and I don't like to be awake in the mornings I use that as my motivation to avoid those rude awakenings lol.

    Close your eyes and see a whole group of people with a slight grimace on their faces, all nodding in wise agreement with your post. You have so much company so you are not alone. It's not a failure its just another step on the journey.

Put on a positive attitude and begin again. Really though, isnt every day a holiday, kinda sorta?

Much Love


PS Blog more!!! It helps flush away some of the emotional toxins and its fun too!!!
