I think it is so easy to fall off the wagon because the old way is so comfortable and familiar for us. Our old ways are so much easier. Change is hard work.....it's challenging!! In addition to our everyday lives: work, family, shopping, finances, cooking, keeping house, school, care giving etc. we now have added this huge huge task of changing our lifestyle. When something has to give it is easier to let ourselves go because we can't let the other responsibilities in our life go. Or so we think. We can;t quit our jobs to make time for daily exercise. We have to help the kids with their homework so we don't have time to plan our meals. Can't ignore the dirty laundry to make out a healthy grocery list.
We have to give ourselves permission to allow a little time during each day for ourselves. It's not only ok to take care of yourself first but necessary.
