Whew! Week 1 successes and challenges

Sunday, May 19, 2019

I made it through week 1 of getting back on track! Some ups, some downs, but all in all, I'm feeling much better today than I was a week ago.


Engaged more with the community than I have in the past and found an accountability buddy. That alone has kept me more on track than I could have imagined.

The night eating struggle only resulted in one day of going over, and that was only by about 100 calories. Definitely a big win!

On the days I didn't have time to get in a walk, I hopped on the stationary bike for 30 minutes, even though what I really wanted to do was to sit on the couch.

Planned meals and grocery shopped, getting lots of fresh, healthy foods.

Ate more small meals and didn't let myself get too hungry. A totally new concept to me, but so far, so good.


One day of horrendous body shame. Hit me out of nowhere and stuck with me for an entire day.

Mother's Day and two family birthdays+children who bring home unhealthy food=lots of temptations.

Anxiety around being out in the world without my healthy foods. Probably comes from years of starving myself on diets and having low blood sugar and hangry episodes.

After all this, I'm feeling better physically and emotionally and I'm ready to take on week 2!

Happy sparking!

    The body shaming stuff is hard to overcome. But you can do it. Brene Brown has some excellent youtube videos about it. You're courageous... you've got this.
    Being more involved in the community...that works wonders.
    Thanks for stopping by...
    We'll see each other down the road!
