Don't call it a comeback...

Monday, August 10, 2009

I've missed sparking! I've been off for almost 2 weeks now. First, work got crazy in preparation for a mini-vacation. (Why is it that we seem to work twice as hard the week before and after vacation? It sort of stinks!) I unfortunately let the crazy work schedule take over and did not exercise (or even eat) quite as I should.

I spent a few days in San Antonio, tagging along on my husband's business trip - our first overnight together in YEARS. It was hot, it was lovely, the people were so nice. I worked out one morning at the hotel, but overall, I walked miles each day in the heat and ate fairly well to boot. No guilt there.

Mixed in there were other challenges, some big ones. My car was in the shop an entire week, making life hard. And Friday, we had to put our dog to sleep, horrible.

So... I haven't been brave enough to weigh in yet. I have held most things in check reasonably well, but I HAVE TO get to the gym today. I have to get back to logging my nutrition every day too. I have been feeling sluggish and somewhat depressed - I think it has everything to do with how I've been treating my body.

I'll be working hard all week to get myself back on track - SOLIDLY on track, not just doing "pretty good" which is what I've been telling myself the past 2 weeks.

I've missed my spark friends - I've missed the daily inspiration from others who are kicking butt at changing their lives! I WILL become a success story and reach my goals. It is HARDER than I thought it would be. But I will be persistent. I'll make comeback after comeback. I'll just keep slogging along until I get there!

    Keep up the good work. You have done great by not slipping completely back into old habits when the stress built up. Sometimes you can't ask for any more than that. You will get there, slowly but surely.

    Sorry to hear about your dog. emoticon

    Nobody's perfect, and sometimes we just need to focus on something else. You did great on your vacation from the sounds of it! Keep up the good work. I can't wait to read your success story!
