Kind of got thrown off there for a a couple of weeks. But back in the saddle.

Monday, July 14, 2014

I need to blog more, life just gets so busy and sometimes it feels like another chore. Although honestly, even though no one really reads this it's good to keep a journal of successes, failures, struggles, strengths, etc... if for no other purpose to be able to see what kind of patterns I fall into.

Here is a definite pattern for me: Holidays.

Geez Fourth of July weekend really did me in. Went to my sisters in Indiana, which is about 1.5 hours away. I came prepared made Veggie chili (nothing but protein packed goodness there) and well I also made 2 different types of cornbread (not so healthy). I also brought, as requested: 2 different types of bruschetta; cannellini bean and sun-dried tomato and regular tomato basil.

Anyway I went in with a plan, but a few hours in that plan went right out the window. I mean it could have been worse I actually completely stayed away from the dessert table. And while I did eat a bit more than I planned on the big kicker was the beer. Oh the beer, the many many beers.

Since the Fourth I've been struggling to get back to logging in on Spark, tracking, and most importantly getting back to regular 5 days a week exercise.

So here I am 10 days later, I've been keeping track of my points yesterday and today and I'm determined to stick with my exercise schedule this week.

I think the major thing I've learned is that it's ok to get a little off thrown as long as you don't give up. I mean life throws some wrenches in the works and not everything is always going to be perfect or according to plan, but instead of getting bummed and taking the easy way out, you just got to keep trying and get back to doing your best. Right?

So I'm trying to make that the new pattern, always getting up, dusting yourself off, and getting back up on that bucking bronco I call life!

What's with the cowgirl imagery? Heck I don't know I just thought I'd run with it. Hi Ho Silver!
