Getting back on track!

Monday, December 10, 2012

well.. things have gotten a bit off track the last 2 days.

I haven't been well for the past 6 weeks or so..exercising hard... have been really run down, really stressed out at work and really haven't been hungry... the result was that I lost a huge amount of weight quite quickly... not on purpose... just how things go sometimes... well I finally realised I wasn't helping myself... so i took a few days of light exercise and bumped my calories up a wee bit and got a lot of sleep...

the result... I am finally getting over the virus... and as a result my appetite has come back in an out of control way! I almost ALWAYS stick to my calories (maybe am high once every 8 weeks) but I have had two days in a row where I haven't done well at all! totally out of character for me!

But I am trying to not get down on myself too much, my body has been having a hard time.. and getting a bunch of calories sees to be helping my body fight of the virus... I exercised hard today... so I am trying to relax, knowing ill be back on track tomorrow...

I refuse to fall victim to the lie that if I mess up one day, it blows off 10 months and 80 pounds of hard work.

I refuse to get overwhelmed by the idea that I have to start all over again...
I am not starting all over again!!! I am merely back on track, with potentially 1 or 2 pounds of damage done max.

    Thanks for the clarification! :p

    That a bad day or two is a bump in the road, rather than a fall off a wagon, that's important to realize. Good on you for being able to keep those days in perspective, as born of the illness, rather than any failure on your part.

    Lets clarify... when I say I am high once every 8 weeks I mean I go over my allowed calories for the day... stay in school kids! don't do drugs... :-D
