WOW....it has been too long!

Tuesday, May 16, 2017

I can't believe that the last time I wrote a blog was in MARCH!!! I don't know what happened - I let all this stuff get in the way of something that is important to me...this is the usual for me. I avoid...that is what I was doing.

Yes, I had a lot on my plate between the renos, my kids' schedules, finishing up my work and helping my parents and inlaws. So what? We are all busy.

So yes, I could dump on myself and say I am disappointed (which I am a bit) but I won't. You know why? Because I am only human and stuff like this happens. I acknowledge that it was my choice to do this. I also chose to keep recording and I chose to keep up with my teams (not great but I did), Persistence perhaps or stubbornness? I know I didn't want to disappoint myself with my food and exercise tracking. The other positive was that I did make effort to keep on top of my eating and remaining active even if sometimes it was my exercise.

The lesson here is that we can adjust what we do depending on the circumstances and not be so hard on ourselves.

I am proud of keeping nutrition a priority and exercise and now..it's back to intentional planning, being engaged and not be on the sidelines when it comes to my health and exercise. I want more than this!

Sooo, what does this mean:

1. Continue tracking food and exercise.
2. Exercise program - follow intentionally.
3. Accountability - teams and blogging as well as journaling on PENZU website.
4. Focus on the positive when it comes to this journey. I sometimes focus more on what is NOT happening vs what is POSITIVE.

I know this sounds repetitive but I need to reconfirm for myself!

Have a wonderful evening everyone. I am looking forward to catching up with everyone!

    I had to look up what PENZU is - sounds like a great way to keep a journal.
    Life often gets more complicated that one imagines it will. I am glad that you are staying positive and not letting it get you down.

    Re-establishing your affirmations is emoticon
    Sounds like you have kept up most of what you wanted to do. Priorities are necessary. Make time for yourself within your limited time frame. Feeling good about yourself and what you are doing for YOU makes you a better individual when it comes to responsibilities to others. emoticon

    Welcome back, Tanya! I'm glad to see you blogging again! I know, sometimes life gets in the way of our goals. I too stayed away for awhile and ended up regaining the weight I lost on my challenges. I am back too. Now, let's do this! emoticon emoticon

    Yay.! I am glad you are back. You can't do everything. The fact that you were able to do some things deserves a big pat on the back. Life sometimes gets in the way of...well...Life. Just make sure you still save some time to nurture yourself in the process.
