Losing steam

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Not sure what happened today - just kinda fell of the wagon. Not that I made horrible choices, but I just didn't feel like tracking today. It's cold , and I'm tired of being cold.

So, what am I going to do about it. I had one bad day - Now it's a new time. What is done is done, and over. It's time to look ahead, and start over. It's time to not dwell in what I did or didn't do today - it's time to do the right thing and move forward.

I just read a blog that just made me want to cry. This poor dear sounded so defeated. No one should feel that bad. No one should mentally beat them selves up to that degree. We're all in this to get fit and healthy - and the best thing is the encouragement we all give each other.

I hope I did the right thing. But after I posted to the other blog, I realized that I need to take my own words of advise to heart. Live in the NOW - and focus on the now, not the what I ate 2 hours ago that I shouldn't have. I need to make the right choices NOW.

    Great thoughts! It really helps when people rally around you and offer support that is so meaningful because they have either been there or are currently going through the same thing. Your advice is something that we all need to be reminded of continually because, at least I do, seem to forget it continuously. Thanks and God Bless!!

    You are completely right. You must just forgive yourself for whatever you did or didn't do and then move on. We are all human, we are going to have off days. The key is to not dwell on the bad days, but to say 'ok, so that wasn't I'll do better tomorrow'.

    We are our own worst critics. Isn't it strange how we can encourage and motivate someone else, how easily we can forgive someone else for their missteps, yet we are so hard on ourselves? I'm glad you are taking your own advice and moving forward. Great job!!

    Falling off of the wagon does not change who you are; it's just an event - one crazy day instead of a disciplined day. This post is written by someone who is honest and brave and determined ... and wise. It's okay to rest and just stay warm. You can kick some butt tomorrow. emoticon

    You know what? We all make choices to jump off the wagon now and again. The thing is to not let it be permanent. As long as we realize we don't want to go back to our old, destructive ways, than nothing is truly lost. Enjoy a day of food of choice or laziness or whatever, then get back to the program. Indeed, life DOES go on!
    Hooray for you for not beating yourself up!!!
