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.
