April eating brings...whoops!

Monday, April 11, 2011


For the last two weekends I have been in the paarrtaayyinng mood!! Yup! Food, LOTS of it; drink (a few) and much merriment.

Whoops. Didn't quite keep up with my mindfulness.

That's OK.

Really! I'm doing great.

I am back Sparking and will make sure to get back on track.

I guess we all do this. But, you know, it was a really great feeling to know that SP was just there, waiting for me to come back to my senses.

Since I have been weight training for about a month now, I start getting antsy when I miss a workout (and that is wonderful!). Now, it's time for me to get serious about reigning in the calories and keep up the good work that I have done.

I think it's really important for all of us to remember ALL the good we have done here. It's so easy to criticize and blame.

I choose to change my response and say: Yup. I did go a little crazy - but that's not WHO I am - just a behavior I CHOSE to participate in. My choice created my current state. All I have to do to change my state - choose differently.

Forgiveness is a big part of my program. Everyone can say - "I messed up." But those who "get" what success means also say - "I can and will learn from my flubs and choices and I am stronger and better for them."

That, for me, was the missing link. I would completely forgo the forgiveness work. Just recognizing that I had choices to make, and I made the choice that put me on a certain road - empower me to simply go back and choose another path.

Blessings and Peace to You All!

    I too have enjoyed myself quite a bit in the last month. That's part of life - just get back on track with your eating. You have a great attitude.

    I know I just need to reign myself in after some FUN or I will keep heading down the gaining path.

    Your muscle and workout progress sounds great - keep it up!

    I figure we're all on a healthy lifestyle journey. Sometimes we hit bumps in the road (heck, I've actually wandered off the road ENTIRELY before!). The important thing isn't how fast or slow we're traveling - it's that we're HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION. You are doing AWESOME!!!
