So, I've had about a 6 day pause from spark. I didn't eat completely crap, but i didn't track and didn't make the good decisions that i normally would have.
I think it's been due to stress. I work in the Persian Gulf and my job is really stressful, so there's that. But also, my parents, who I adore are coming to visit on Saturday and my husband and I are taking them on an African safari next week.
Additionally, my husband and I are trying to conceive and I'm in the throws of the "two week wait" to see if we were successful this round.
It was also DH's birthday on Tuesday too!
So i guess the anticipation + celebration threw me off track. But only slightly. The old me would have given up, but I'm not. I'm back here today, ready to plan out my day. I know on the safari, it may be difficult to spark, but I'm hoping for lots of skinned fruit that is safe to eat! If not, I'll make the best choices I can and be back to it the minute I get back here.
For me, it doesn't matter how long this takes. It's how I live now, and thankfully the "binge" days felt strange and unnatural.
My new normal is sparking and even if it takes me three years to get to my goal instead of one, I will get there!
Wishing EVERYONE a wonderful week!
