Going through it all again

Sunday, June 09, 2019

There are moments when it is hard to realise that I slipped up and am going through the same motions again. When those moments happen, I remind myself of the importance of turning up again and again and again. Right now, I take my greatest inspiration from those Sparkers who are back again, and again, and again. We can do this together. Again, and again, and again.

I tell myself that at some point it will not be "again". Instead it will be "it has stuck". I just need to keep returning.

So, I am at day 10 of my calorie counting streak. My longest streak is 66 days - that was while I was pregnant in 2015. So, I have quite a goal to try and reach and exceed! But, right now I will stretch my tracking streak to 12.

Today, I went out and ran 7km and it was great. I'm so happy to be running again and to feel my body remember how it works. I'm still doing the yoga, but sticking with gentler routines for now.

My weight shifted under 58kg this week, so it is moving down again. But my parent's arrival has come with lots of chocolate, lots of wine, and lots of crisps.


I fell foul of that yesterday, but I don't want to do that again. I've been working too hard.

So, my main goal remains to keep tracking, keep building up my running miles gently, and keep doing yoga everyday.

    emoticon tracing has just become a part of my life. It makes such a difference for me, and I HATE seeing the RED LINE On my sparkpage. But, only I have control over that dang line. There are days I KNOW it'll be red, but! That's a choice only I, myself can make. And there are those occassional days I am kinda ok with it. LOL Maybe if the line was BLUE!???? But the RED,, ugh,, school,,, cross outs of wrong answers when I only wanted to see "Very Good" "A+" "A++"

    One day at a time, is such a good way to live. Each day is a gift to be used and life to be cherished. If on the worse of days (and they happen!) to find something that brings comfort (other than food, though it's often the first thought of),, a childs hug, an animal patting, the sun shining, it's raining and we need it,,, etc just makes it easier.

    Have to agree with you about sticking to it. Nutrition Tracking was and continues to be a game changer for me. There is absolutely no way I could have teased out the challenges to my health associated with food had I not been tracking this stuff. We keep listening to our bodies. We shift. We adjust. And, the weight does take care of itself. emoticon
