The dark side is strong

Monday, March 04, 2013


After a month of stress, a cold, more stress and other stuff I could whine about I have to come clean and admit that the dark side grabbed hold and old habits reared their ugly head last week.

Instead of going grocery shopping I ordered in dinner. Instead of spending a half hour on the treadmill I sat on my butt on the couch watching reruns. Instead of tracking my food last week I decided to not worry about it for a few days, which of course also meant not stepping on the scale. It's amazing how quickly old habits can come back and it's a good reminder to myself that I am always only a couple of days or a few excuses away from being back on the old path of an unhealthy lifestyle. In one week I gained 4 pounds.

I am still very proud that I managed the month the way I did. I had a lot of distractions tossed in my path that normally I would have dived onto so I could use them as an excuse to not exercise or eat healthy. I did lose myself for a few days and I know that as quickly as those 4 pounds found a home with me I will be dropping them. I ate too much, didn't exercise and ignored water. Hey, I know how to fix that!

    Thanks for this... It's comforting to know that we all slip back into the actions of our old selves. Each day is new, and every decision matters. These are the most amazing things about a journey in health. Good luck to you. You can do it! emoticon emoticon

    We all do it at some point. I didn't track for the last 3 days but did subconsciously try and keep note of what I put into my mouth. Gained 1 pound.

You can get back on track and will manage to send those 4 packing. emoticon emoticon
