I Think I Can, I Think I Can. OOPS!!!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

I know that I'm the only person this has happened to. emoticon I feel so embarrased. emoticon I've been cruising along on maintenance and feeling so good about myself. I knew I had it made and then the Holiday Season rolled in with all of the activity and responsibilities. I committed the cardinal sin of healthy living. I didn't maintain my exercise program. I could make the excuse that I was too busy. OK - I did make that excuse. emoticon Then I stopped weighing every Sunday morning. Do you hear Dominos falling. Me too. It all happened gradually and maybe I wasn't logging every bite I put into my cavernous mouth. emoticon What have I done? I blew it so I may as well just throw up my hands and quit. Ya think?

Lew, are you daft? Quit? You have been doing some stinkin thinkin? It's only three pounds. It's time to get back on the program so get your butt in gear. What? You don't feel good? No kidding. Stinkin thinkin will do that to you. Stop the pity party and get back to walking and walking and walking. Dust off those dumbbells and wake up those old muscles. You know the program works so get back to working the program. emoticon No, not that program. That program got you in trouble. Get back on the Spark program and work it.

OK, Moms. It's back to work. Thanks for the wake up call. emoticon

Enjoy the ride,

    That stickin' thinkin' is a killer. Better to stop now at 3 pounds, though, than wait until it's 30 pounds. You'll get it under control.

    I hope it worked for you - I've been stuck for a couple of weeks.

    Oh yeah, we've all been there. The best part about it though is that you didn't let it snowball out of control like many do. Great job getting back on track!

    Thanks for posting this. I like your phrase, "stinkin thinkin" That will become a standard at our house. This blog came at just the right time for me. Many things have caused me to engage in "stinkin thinkin". You just helped me to snap out of it. emoticon

    You are not alone, I got a wakeup call from my doctor yesterday, so I have been riding my recumbant bike, and eating healthy. Hang in there. We can do it!!

    Aww Lew, that wasn't such a big gain and you DID enjoy your Christmas, especially with the young 'uns. No excuses, mind you, but I'd say you did okay friend!
It won't stay on for long when you get back to walking! And you have a great, positive attitude!

    Oh, Thank you Thank you Lew!!!! I SOOOO needed this today!

You are right - it's only 3 pounds (or maybe 4). Today is a new fresh day. I can, and WILL, do this. Today. Just today. Tomorrow will take care of itself.
