This month has been a struggle for me on a number of levels, physically, emotionally and spiritually. After seven pretty great months on Spark People, consistently exercising for the first time in my life and a loss of more than 20 pounds, I started courting disaster. I got sloppy, I got cocky, I got lazy. I got in trouble. I lost my motivation, I lost my drive, I lost nearly a whole month. I am mad at myself and I know from past experience that being mad could lead to more self destructive behaviors. So, what to do now……
Guess I should pick myself up, dust myself off and get back in the game!
I populated my Goals Board, I signed up for a couple of new Spark Teams and I am blogging for the first time in more than three months. That’s a start right? I am also reaching out to you all and asking for help. That’s a tough one for me, I was raised to pull myself up by my boot straps and count only on myself. What I have learned, however is that I do better with support and accountability so I am laying aside my pride and reaching out.
I know that part of the pity party I've been throwing for myself this past month has to do with feeling stressed and overwhelmed at work. In order to more effectively deal with that, today I joined The Stress Busting Challenge.
I am here tonight seeking your guidance, your wisdom, your success stories and your passion for Spark People. Thanks for being in my corner these past seven months and keeping me accountable.
I AM BACK!
