Missed one day

Saturday, October 12, 2013

For 390 days I walked a mile every day outside and then I missed a day. Basically my horrible work life caught up to me, I went out with friends and came home to tired to walk. I literally completely forgot to do the one thing in my life that is my constant just because of a stupid bad day. That's not really true. Actually everything is terrible right now. As of now I am failing my physiology course simply because I am either working or too tired to study. My weight loss and personal goals crumbled away weeks ago and I am sad to write this but in all reality I am not taking care of myself. My house is a disaster. Car really needs to be cleaned. This is day two with out my medication (normally I never miss). My office looks like a paper bomb went off in it. I'm doing everything in my power to perform right now and coming up short every single day.

I am trying to take the attitude that it's one day out of almost 400 which is less than a 1% error rate but I still am so disappointed. All I can do though is start again. I am not going to quit walking just because of one day. The thought of being back to zero though makes me feel heinous.

    I am very sorry, but you are awesome to write it down and take accountability for it. I bet once you put it in witing it was not as bad as you perceived it. It may all sound like a lot but it's all small stuff. If you are still breathing, you have all your body parts, you haven't already flunked your physiology class you can rectify the situation. Get back to your walking, eating healthy and let the cleaning wait until the other is done. Your job is important and your class. You can get back on track with your diet, exercise and better use your time so you are not as exhausted. Some times the stress of not doing what we know we need to do can make up exhauted. Just get back on the horse and ride it.! emoticon emoticon emoticon We all fall down but some of us get up and some don't!

  Breathe slowly. You are not back to zero. You are on part II, day 1.

Congrats on your truly major achievement in walking every day for 390 days.

I look forward to seeing what you can achieve next.

    emoticon I'm so sorry you're dealing with so much right now, and missed a day. But you're right, you CAN start again. Sometimes fresh starts are blessings in disguise.
