REFLECTIONS ON THE SPRINGING INTO ACTION CHALLENGE

Thursday, May 19, 2011

I POSTED THIS ON THE WEEK 1O LIME TEAM THREAD, THEN MOVED IT HERE.


MY REFLECTIONS ON THE SPRING CHALLENGE 2011:

I AM STILL PROCESSING HOW IT IS I DROVE MY WAGON INTO THE DITCH THIS WEEK...I WAS AT 200! FIRST TIME IN MANY YEARS. I HAD A GOAL TO LOSE TWO MORE AND BE IN ONDERLAND....WHAT HAPPENED.....

I THINK IT'S TWO THINGS....ONE, I GOT SCARED! SCARED THAT I WAS IN CHARGE OF MY DESTINY....I WAS ON A GREAT HIGH AND FELT CONFIDENT AND JUST GOOD ABOUT MYSELF...SO WHY LET THAT GO??? MAYBE I JUST HAD TO MAKE MYSELF FEEL AWFUL AND DECIDE HOW I WANT TO LIVE THE REST OF MY LIFE...

TWO, I LET EMOTIONS GO INTO SELF LOATHING AND THEN OVER EATING. I'VE LEARNED THAT MY BODY DESERVES ME TO CARE FOR IT, LOVE IT AND NURTURE IT WITH GOOD CHOICES. I DON'T KNOW WHY I THREW OUT MY TOOLS AND GAVE IN. I TOOK MY ANGER OUT ON MYSELF. THOUGHT I HAD THIS FIGURED OUT...I WANT THIS TO BE THE LAST TIME!!!

I LEARNED WHAT CALORIE RANGE I NEED TO LOSE ABOUT A POUND A WEEK. I LEARNED HOW MUCH EXERCISE I NEED RIGHT NOW TO HELP BURN OFF CALORIES. I LEARNED WHAT FOODS MAKE ME FEEL THE BEST. I LEARNED WHEN MY BODY FEELS IN SYNC, I FEEL IN CHARGE AND MY OUTLOOK ON EVERYTHING IS BRIGHTER. THAT BEING SAID, I HAVEN'T BEEN DOING THESE THINGS THIS WEEK. I ATE THE WRONG FOODS AND MADE MYSELF PHYSICALLY SICK. IT MAY TAKE A WHILE TO GET MY BODY RIGHT, BUT I WILL GET BACK TO WHERE I FELT GOOD AND PROUD OF MYSELF.

I DID MANAGE TO LOSE AND KEEP OFF TWO POUNDS SINCE THE START OF THE CHALLENGE, NOT MY GOAL OF SEVEN POUNDS BUT HOPEFULLY I'VE LEARNED HOW TO MOVE FORWARD FROM HERE AND KEEP PROGRESSING.

    Hi Rett,
    I was looking for an article to tell you about that I read that addressed this in the best I had seen and I can't find it!
    So common..getting close to a goal and then losing our footing.
    Try not to be hard on yourself and just keep on keepin' on.
    We can do it!
