Inner voices be quiet! I WILL not go back "there"!

Wednesday, August 11, 2010

Yes, returning to work after 2 weeks of vacation is tough. This week I find I have been struggling more than I have since I started SparkPeople. There is no one thing that's changed, other than returning from vacation, however I find I am getting away from my exercise routine, don't seem to have the same focus for getting the workout intensity, finding reasons why I am cannot do more. I have put less effort into meal planning, which has resulted in a lot of continued grazing. I have not resorted to junk food ( which was my old habit), but I can certainly see how easy it would be to go all the way back to my old ways..Its just SO much easier...Those inner voices that I have quieted over these last months are starting to be grow in volume again..but I WILL NOT go back there!
I am hoping by blogging this, I will sort my head out..It's definitely the mental struggle.
I need to focus on what I HAVE accomplished, how I got there, lean on my sparkfriends.. ..acknowledge these days happen, but get re-focussed on goals.
Get some positive images going, to shut those inner voices up!

Okay..that's out , whining done..Gotta go get'er done..Make lunch!

    I'm sure the blogging and support will help get you back on track. You've come SUCH a long way from those 'old habits' and you are MUCH stronger than those darned inner voices. You can do this!

    The end of summer is so hard! Let the routine of work work for you. It takes a little more planning, but it can be so helpful to have a set schedule and know what needs to get done. You know how to get to where you want to be, it's just a matter of putting it back into practice. Good Luck!

    Look back on all the pictures you have taken to remind yourself all he weight you have lost. Make a list of all the positive changes in your life that have occurred since losing weight for motivation. Remind yourself these next few days why you are doing this, and hopefully that will help with bringing back that focus and determination to go to the finish line! You can do it, I know you can! emoticon

    Transitions back to work aren't easy! Take it one step at a time.
