Bad sparker this week!!!

Thursday, June 03, 2010

Ok, don't know what it is but the last few weeks I have been so out of it as far as sparking goes. It started with my son here, he threw my routine all out of whack. Now I remember why having children makes this journey so much harder, nothing stays on schedule!!! Then there was the crawfish boil. It took all day to get ready for it, then the next day to clean up and then Memorial day to recover from it all. So I missed most of my sparking through the weekend. And now here it is a new week. I am so behind in everything!!!

I think I am already in vacation mode. I ruined my streaks while my son was home so now I just keep saying, I'll wait till I get back from vacation to start them all over anyway. I know this isn't the best mind frame to have either. I am still eating right, that is not a problem for me now. But getting up early to do my yoga is not working out this week at all. And doing any cardio at night has slacked off too. But I am still losing some weight at the same time. So can't decide if this is a totally bad thing or just a mini break for me. I am NOT giving up on things that is for sure. We have also been soooooo busy this week that I haven't had a chance to check in with most of my teams, send out sparkgoodies, do challenges ect. It's just been a zoo. So basically I am taking this time off to get ready to go to wyoming. Then when I get back it will be full swing again!!!

I am really excited about my vacation though, mostly. Worried about the food issue some. We go camping with family and friends and for the most part the menu is a tradition that has been set out for years. I plan on stopping at a Walmart though somewhere and stocking up on healthy snacks and veggies. So hopefully that will help some. But I get to see my mom. Very excited about that. I haven't seen her since last year. And no one in my family has seen me be a non smoker since I was that will be exciting!! They have seen me loose weight before and I have said a million times, this is the last time and it never was. So not sure I'll be saying it this time, even though in my heart I feel it is. But actions speak louder then words so next year when I go and I am at my goal weight, then maybe I can say it is for good. Anyway, I'm a rambling fool now so I'll end this!! Thank you, thank you, thank spark friends!! I love knowing I have support here when I need it and that is awesome!! I will be here through Monday and then off for a week. No access to internet in the boonies...LOL!!

    You know in your heart that you've changed for good and that's what really counts! I know we are all a litte off track with the change into summer and vacation mode. I'll be leaving this week too and am really worried about food choices and getting my exercise in.

    You seem very self-aware--and that's great!! I think self-aware people are the most successful in so many facets of life! You are doing so great!!!

    You deserve a mental health break. Try to eat the best you can. Your plan sounds good and portion control will help also. Just listen to your body and if it starts complaining too much (bloating, midsection "puffing up", energy depleting), you'll know you need to scale back food and move more however you can.

    Enjoy your vacation!

    I hope you have a wonderful vacation... keep up the good work with the "Stopping Smoking" part... its so well worth it.. I had gotten sick and stopped while I was in the hospital and when I went back to work I walked into a house full of smokers.. I even have to light my clients smokes and when I take him out of town I have to drive in the car while he smokes... let me tell you 30+years of smoking and if I can go through this everyday you can stay strong too....
    as far as streaks go I learned the hard way to set them up for 5 out of 7 days and if I still don't get it tracked I just start over... I use to stress it but not anymore.. the fun with family is so much more important...
    I do track my food after the fact and it helps.. I didn't do that this last weekend and I think I should of..

    You're not alone in having "spring fever" or whatever it is the last week or two. My daughter has been home and I am having the same issues you are. You'll get it sorted out.

    Enjoy your vacation!!!
