battles won, lost and still fighting.

Friday, July 15, 2016

"I often dream of nights that set
and watch the rising sun
And I spoke to you of life and of the battles I had won
a warm wind blowin' memories, makes me long for home
but a cold wind blows much harder and makes me wanna roam"

Everyone is fighting some kind of battle.
Weight, health, relationship, job. Family, Debt.
I know despair, but not total desperation.
I know worry, but not total defeat.

How often do we really feel defeated?? I dont think in reality I have ever felt totally defeated when it comes to weight and exercise, lifestyle changes, eating healthy.
Every single time I undo my success, I know that the next day is a do over and I have a new shot at getting back on track.
I am my own worst critic, I am my own judge and jury. Yesterday was a day I didnt do so great when it came to eating right.
I wont say I ate too much, but I did eat too much of the wrong things while trying to get a couple of pounds off.
I had set a goal to lose 6 pounds by my next doctors appointment, which is July 29th, and I have been doing pretty well, the numbers on the scale are good, I weighed again this morning. Which was against my own advice, I hadnt planned to weigh again until Monday.
I am not going to let this weekend un do me!!!
I have NO plans to go out to eat, I have no plans to buy unhealthy snacks.
I will walk and I will eat right.
So, what am I beating myself up over????
The unseen?
Looking back on yesterday, if only I hadnt had that bread, that extra helping at supper, that snack, putting me over my calories for the day, fat, carbs etc.....If only......
Moving on.
Today is a new day, I weighed, scale is good, no gain, no OMG I HATE MY LIFE moment.
Yesterday wasnt all bad, I got my hair cut alot shorter and got some new color.
That always makes me feel better about life.
Today, I gotta go pay some bills and I am going to go by the track and get in a walk, that is if it isnt raining because right now its sprinkling.
But I feel good about today.
Now ask me Monday how I feel, time will tell.
Happy Sparking.
