A Slow Leak in My Tire of Focus
Monday, May 27, 2013
My brother-in-law's wedding was this weekend. I've known him for a long time....we were even roommates for a while before I married his brother! I am truly happy for him. Although, at my stage in life - married 14 years, kids beyond baby/toddler - I understand somewhat of what he is getting himself into. It's scary......
Anyway. My kids were both in the wedding party, as was my husband. This made for a very busy week. I'd like to say I planned all my meals ahead and managed to stay within my calorie limits every day.... but that didn't happen. I was ok until Friday. Saturday and Sunday were a gong show.
I'm not going to dwell on it....stumbles happen. I didn't like what the scale said this morning, and that's the beginning of the motivation needed to pick up the pieces and keep on keeping on. All along I've told myself to "trust the process". This is now more important than ever. Truth be told, there's been a slow leak in my focus tire. That's been liberating in some sense; I've realized that I don't have to be OBSESSED all the time. But the flip side of that is that letting a little go makes it all too easy to let it all go.
I need to give myself some kind of mini challenges.....any ideas? Fun spark streaks that are beneficial but not too crazy? Something interesting?
Thanks, SparkPeople. Thanks for sending me daily annoying emails that I almost never read, but remind me to check in anyway. Thanks for sucking me into the calorie-counting vortex. Thanks for making the spark wheel fun to spin. Thanks to the actual people who post comments on my blog!! Thanks for bringing us together....see???!?? If they can do it, so can you.
Onward and upward.
