Back On Track

Thursday, July 18, 2013

Hello all you fabulously sparky Sparkers!

I've been gone for a while. I was lost in the chaos of my family drama. Finally, they are all out, moved into their new place, and no longer wandering around my home like grouchy, messy gremlins.

I haven't heard from my mother in nearly a week. The silence is amazing!

As predicted, the three pounds that I gained was most likely all from stress. Even though I completely stopped tracking and checking in here at SP, I am back within a half a pound of my weight when all that stress entered my life.

I'll be honest. while I wasn't tracking, I was eating like crap. There were many brownies, trips for fast food, and sodas. There weren't any Western bacon double cheeseburgers or anything as horrible as that, but it definitely wasn't clean living.

Oh, and there was wine...lots and lots of wine.

Part of me expected that I had gained ANOTHER three pounds since I last checked in, but I woke up this morning, finally feeling like the mental weight was off of me...and hopped on the scale to find that the physical weight was off of me as well.

So, time to get back on the path. My pity party is at an end. I have work to do.

Get out there and be strong, Sparkers!

    Yay! You survived!

    Sounds like even though you didn't eat the cleanest that you still have the healthy habits ingrained enough that you didn't go anywhere near overboard - that's awesome!

    As for wine - well, it's medicinal, isn't it?

    Glad to hear that your haven is back to being yours...
