This last week has been a real challenge for me. My daughter visited from the east coast and I did very well for the first 5 days - kept up my tracking, etc. The last 2 days were sightseeing days and included some meals I wouldn't normally eat, plus some sweets that aren't part of my plan
In the past I would have done two things: 1) beat myself up, and 2) give up, thinking I'm just a failure so why bother. NOT THIS TIME! Instead, I'm looking at today as a new day and I'm back on my game plan. Started the day with a healthy breakfast and am tracking once again - which is something I have to do to keep myself honest and in control. I also decided not to get on the scale this morning because if it has gone up - even slightly - I'll get discouraged and start feeling like a failure again. No, I decided the scale can wait until at least the end of the week because by then I'll have given my body a chance to recuperate. I just want to say to everyone that if it were not for all of you - all the people who give me support on my Spark Teams - I wouldn't have this new outlook.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He wlll make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
