What happened?

Monday, April 22, 2013

I'm trying to figure out where the last several weeks went. After the success of my 5k in March, something happened. I think I was thrown off by the usual - work, going out, temptations, excuses, and inconsistencies. I didn't get away with it either: I gained. Went from 183 and went over 190. Not cool. So close to 170-ville.

So... I'm back at it. While I have been eating good (here and there, and I do mean here and there), and doing Zumba, I haven't been consistent with either. I haven't been running. I haven't really done any strength training outside of yoga. This won't do.

I know what I need to do. I've done it before. And it's so weird - we feel great after exercising and the results we get.... why is it so easy to get off track without realizing?

My 31st birthday was this past week (also didn't help my Sparkiness). But with that, is a restart. I created another "# Things to Do Before I'm #" list - "32 Things To Do Before I'm 32" I enjoyed making a list last year and being able to look back to see all that I accomplished. Needless to say, this year there are many health goals on there. That in itself shows how much I want this, and there's only one way to make that happen. Time to shake it!!

So, here's my last and final farewell to the 190s - once I leave you behind, I have no intention of seeing you ever again. Sorry, 190 chunk. I'm breaking up with you.

I also intend to be a better Spark Leader of our local Spark Team. I keep up with the boards for the most part, but there are things I've been meaning to put into action that I haven't done yet. I need to help my Tally buds as much as I need to help myself. There's the added motivation!

    As long as we keep getting back up, I think that's the important thing. My successes and setbacks seem to be moment to moment right now.

    I feel like I've fallen off course following a race before. We feel so good and so successful that we let our guard down. It happens but you are aware of it now and ready to change course.

    Enjoy your 30's. I think the 40's and 50's were better but the 60's have been a real challenge.
