I Fell Back

Saturday, August 10, 2013

I hate to say it but last week I fell back. I didn't log in to spark for the whole week, I didn't walk, I didn't keep up with my exercises and I didn't keep up with my eating habits i established. Because of that I gained 4 pounds. I am not upset though. I went through a bad time last week and I know it was all my one else to blame. When I weigh myself in I didn't cry or felt like i failed. I just realize i don't want to do that again. And I have determined and set my mind to it that I won't. First I had to realize why I fell back and find out the ways to fix that problem. I know of 6 reasons for falling back last week
1 My foot swelled up so I didn't do my daily walks
...Next time my foot swell up...just because I don't walk I can still do other exercises...even sit down exercises that involve vigorous movement.

2. I was visiting another city the week before and when I came back home last Monday my house was a total mess and I had to clean it from head to toe
...Cleaning can be a great way of putting exercise in your program and have fun..Play some music, dance while cleaning so it get my mind off being upset that my children messed up my house, and don't let it bother me...houses do get dirty sometimes

3. Went grocery shopping and had to buy everything for the household even things I don't eat
.....Still can go grocery shopping but try to buy separate from what I like and what my family eat because they refuse to get on the same meal plan I have.. and just because it's in the house I don't have to eat it

4. Had big dinner for the family because they missed my cooking when I was gone
....Just because i make big dinners(like I always do) don't mean I have to eat big potions and just because one or two days I did slip and ate to much don't feel like okay i do it this week and next week start fresh

5. Didn't check into Spark not one day last week
.....If i only check in for 5 minutes at least i checked in and will start reading more as I start the 5 minutes. Spark does give me the inspiration to keep going forward because I like to seem my accomplishments.

6. and 6 had a stress last week
..... besides getting into an argument with 3 family members last week the the birthday of my daughter who was killed when she was 18. I think next time I get into an argument I use that anger to exercise and get that stress release and about my daughter, celebrate the life she lived and I know she would want me to have a healthy and happy life and be grateful that God gave me a chance to have raised a wonderful daughter like her for 18 years. Don't let that day of her birthday(August 2nd) or her death day(August 15) be the reason for to fail y goals. She wouldn't want that

    emoticon You have made plans to overcome the reasons / situations / excuses that kept you from meeting your goals last week! You have a really great attitude, you avoided beating up on yourself, and made plans for the future of how to handle various situations.

    Please accept my sympathy on the loss of your daughter. Birthday and death day dates can be really emotionally charged times.

    Thanks for sharing.
