Time to Re-Group!

Thursday, November 14, 2013

I have to admit, over the past couple of weeks, I've let my goals and plans fall the wayside. I haven't been making good food choices. I haven't been pushing myself on my workouts. I haven't taken the time to really focus on my goals and achieve them. There has just been too much going on and I've had to just let go of a few things. But that is stopping NOW!

Now, I will say this...in the past, when I've gone through phases like this, I just give up completely. I throw up my hands and say - forget it! I just can't do it and I eat without thought and stop exercising completely. I haven't done that yet! I have still been pushing myself to get my workouts in - even if it's an abbreviated version. Yes, I've made some bad choices in my eating, but I've balanced it with good choices. Yesterday, I had chicken tenders for lunch - but I had them with a small side salad and a baked potato - not french fries! When I was in need of a quick dinner, I stopped at Subway instead of a fast food joint. (And ordered carefully!)

So, I'm happy to say, there is still hope for me! I'm still on the right track. I just need to re-group and re-focus. Things at home seem to be settling down. I think we're turning a corner with my crazy toddler. (Of course, I say this tentatively, as it's an ever changing story!). I'm getting into a groove with my new responsibilities at work. So, now it's time to regroup and refocus.

This week, it's about revisiting my goals. Reading some motivational stories. It's also about getting the food back under control. Staying out of the kids candy and treats. Being mindful of lunches out and avoiding the pitfalls.
