All or Nothing

Sunday, March 03, 2013


Spark Coach asked me to blog about my all or nothing pitfalls on this journey. As a matter of fact, I am this side of one today. I fell victim to pretty much an "I don't care" attitude. I don't know if this counts as all or nothing But I certainly had the "I'll get back on track tomorrow" thing going on. Pretty soon a week had gone by and I had made nothing but poor choices.
I got back to it on the 1st of March but my body read me the riot act when I did strength training. I had not feed it good fuel and it was backfiring and blowing smoke and sputtering along. I am really sore today too. Haven't had the DOMS in awhile.
All in all, I think I still have to learn to be less critical of myself and allow myself to make mistakes without getting derailed. This will mean really dealing with emotions and food. They do NOT go together.

I am ready to continue my journey and see where I can go next. With Spark Friends like I have, that will be a blessing. I don't think I would have made it this far without all of you! Thanks for being here and being on the journey with me! God Bless!

    I think we all go through this I don't care attitude every now and again, but the most important part is, is that you are back at it and trying again, Julie!

    Your blog today really hit home for me. I know how hard it is to get back on track, when you make a few bad food choices. But the important thing is you did get back on track. You are doing a great job, and are an inspiration. You can do this!!!

    I think you got your 'all' and 'nothing' in the blog. Sounds like you decided 'if I can't have it all, I'll do nothing!'

Glad to have you back!

    Emotions are for fitness minutes and food is for needs, definitely separate. You can do this!
