A loss and now a gain
Wednesday, May 29, 2013
Hello my Spark friends! So you might have noticed that I haven't been around for a while. You'll never believe why. Unless you live like me, that is.
It rained one day. Day 3 of my lifestyle change. DAY 3. Yes, day 3. Guess what I didn't do? I didn't walk. I ate properly, but didn't walk. This then translated to my entire lifestyle change being thrown out the window. Day 4, I forgot all about my walk. On Day 5 I realized I'd forgotten all about myself again. Did I do anything about it? No.
so it's now been several weeks since this happened. I again am thinking about myself and wondering why I let myself get back to "normal". As of today, Wednesday 5/29/13, I'm tracking my food and making myself a priority. I've got to get out of the mindset that it's an annoyance to constantly track my food. That's a HUGE change I need to make.
Other changes we're making as a family: my husband is on the same path as I am. FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER I THINK! He gave me some amazing validation this month about how I've set the example to eat correctly. YAYAYAYAYAY!!!! I'm so excited about that! So this has made me think about what I've done since letting normal take place again. Not setting the right example, and he's picking me up when I fall. I've been waiting for this for a long time and it's finally happening! I'm so very excited about that! We're also making sure we get other pieces of our puzzle taken care of as well. Finances is a large piece and it's nice to take charge of that as well. We're also working on our time. I'm actually starting to schedule all the activities on our daily schedule to make sure we get everything done.
Progress is baby steps in our life. I'm taking them.
