I was totally derailed last week.
It started off well but then when my pipes froze, and my winter depression intenisifed, everything got thrown off track.
I admit I let it happen.

One of these days I want to get to the point in my healthy lifestyle that thiese "life interruption" make less of an impact than they do now.

The upshot is that many times in my past, a one week derailment would have turned into several weeks or months.

I have victory in the fact that I am still here this morning, and while irritated by the loss of ground, I am not devestated. I know I can fix it.

This week it seems like things might be back to semi normal so I get to pick back up and and try to work off the 2.5 pounds I re-gained.

    I also can't wait until life interruptions don't interrupt my healthy life! I had the same sort of week last week and got way off track. Good luck making good choices and remember to be kind to yourself while getting back to it!

    You can do it. It's just about picking yourself back up and keeping at it, even though it is incredibly hard and all you want to do is sit and mope and eat... At some point, you figure out that those things don't make you feel better. What does help is taking steps to fix the problems. Although if you're me apparently everything is conspiring against you making those good decisions. Good news is that difficult does not mean impossible.

    Bleh! I am in the same place this morning. I finally got myself on track yesterday and today I got my sh!t together enough to examine what happened without turning it into a blame-and-shame. Everytime you "slip" or go-off-the-deep-end, you learn something new about yourself. I mean, maybe you can't really do anything with that knowledge today, but everything you learn can help you move forward in the future.

    Have you tried to take vitamins D for your winter depression.
    I find it makes a big difference for me!

    It's OK to take a step back as long as you have more step forwards, than step backs.
