Week 5 update
Thursday, February 06, 2014
Well...I fell. I fell far off the doing well wagon! This week I fell hard. I have eaten like junk and horrible all week this week. This was bound to happen. It is like recovering from any addiction. There are times that I will be prone to relapse and going back into my old ways. I have tons of excuses as to why, it was cold, I was bored, my husband was home and we were celebrating, etc. I have a million reasons. But the don't matter. It doesn't matter if they are justified or not. The truth of the matter is, I fell off my eating good wagon. This is bound to happen. The test is to get back up again and fell like it was just a bump in the road instead of what I have done in the past. In the past, I have fallen down and decided to start over. I don't need to start over. I have made some huge progress and build some good habits.
The good news about falling off is it gave me insight into how I used to feel. YUCK!!! I have been tired and un-motivated for 3 days now...3 days. I also fell off my working out (which for sure wasn't a habit yet). I let myself think that I needed to be doing a lot. I don't need to. My goal for 21 days is 10 minutes a day, every day. That's it. Granted, almost every day I do more. Once I get started I am fine. It is just the getting going I struggle with.
I have also dropped the ball on my prayer journal, meditation/quiet time, and bible reading. I am sure this is a huge reason why I fell so hard. I need God's help daily to succeed.
A friend of mine agreed to do a 5k with me in May. I am quite out of shape and it is going to take me that long to get in shape. The greatest part is she is a friend that will keep me accountable and going so that we will run this 5k!!!! I have set a countdown on my phone. I have 23 days until I need to start running and 107 days until the 5k.
Up to this point, a lot of my blog posts have been just stream of conscious posts. I want to get more serious about my writing, my journey and my plan. What are some suggestions you have for how to make my blog posts better? More relate-able and desirable to read?
