After a couple of days off...relaxing at the lake with my family and just giving myself some time to really get over this jet lag, I'm back to streaking again.
Today is day one. I wrote out my goals (still unchanged from last month) so that I can see them and remind myself I want and need to do this. I was a little bummed that my streak was interupted, but happy that it didn't knock me down so far that I can't get back up again. I am working on setting up a plan that will change up my daily routine and hopefully start seeing the numbers change on the scale soon.
I must say, the jet lag really did a number on me. Overtired makes me over emotional and dealing with packing up my house, finding a new home for my cats and just being home after being gone for 10 months...last week was not fun at all (ok, there were some fun parts!) Also wanting to give up on streaking because even though it was good emotionally, it didn't do anything for the scale and that was also messing with my head!
No more! I am back to being on Sparkpeople every morning to remember why I am doing this. I am back to my simple workout routine (simple, but I know there are changes happening). I am back to praying about what I want and need to change in my lifestyle to make better choices, and praying about what I need to accomplish these next 2 weeks.
I am also praying about this new plan I am mapping out. I am a master planner!! I suck at actually executing the plans I make. However, with the exception of the end of last week, I successfully executed my previous plan for 30 days!! That's huge!! I can't forget that! And while this plan has more difficult exercises, it will still take me less than 20 minutes a day to execute....I spend more than that on silly facebook games...of course I can spend that much time taking care of me!
Here's to Day 1! :)
