Back at it!
Monday, November 11, 2019
I started back on SparkPeople 12 days ago after a three-plus year absence. I hesitated to write anything right away, out of fear that I’d give up after a few days. But today I feel like everything is starting to click, and I’m feeling great!
I’ve been swimming for the past 2-3 months. Many times I’ve felt very exhausted for the rest of the day after a swim, but I’m starting to feel energized now. What a nice change!
My eating habits are far from perfect, but getting better. Today I was unexpectedly invited out for lunch. At first I was tempted to decline because I figured I’d end up eating something unhealthy, but then I decided to go and do my best to eat well. I enjoyed a bowl of beef barley vegetable soup, felt very satisfied, and was proud of myself for my choice.
I lost a lot of ground the past three years, but finally feel as though I’ve turned the corner and started back on the road to better health.
