SparkFriends, you are always here right when I need you.
I have been going through a very stressful time due to a lot of changes at work that I'd rather not discuss. I've been dealing with this stress very poorly in the nutrition department. That coupled with my school's gym being closed over break has led me to a 181.2 on the scale this morning. A 5 pound gain since last week! I realize a lot of this is water and sodium, especially since my size 10s still fit and my 12s are still loose. But still, nothing like that kind of shock to truly wake you up and say, WHAT THE HECK ARE YOU DOING.
Not to mention, I constantly feel the need to stay honest and accountable for all of you because you mean so much to me. You telling me I'm an inspiration and success make me realize I can't revert back to old habits, even in the most stressful of times.
So here I am, back on track, saying no to the cookies and candy in my office today. And yes to good choices. Tomorrow, I start a 16 day break that will hopefully alleviate my stress and allow me to focus on my time with friends and family. I also hope to watch my nutrition and get some exercise in at a local gym that is letting me do a 7 visit pass for their "weekly guest rate" even though it will actually be over a 2 week period.
I just wanted to let you know that I slipped a bit, but all your comments and kind words are wonderful reminders of why I'm here.
So thank you.
