Oops I did it again!

Friday, January 29, 2016

(Thwacks forehead)

I have a very bad "all or nothing" mentality.

I know this. I acknowledge it. I even try to prepare hard for it and try to back off.

But, I went into 2016 with some strong, awesome, attitude and I have been proud to say I have been working out and adding more steps and feeling really good.

Until, I was not feeling good.

It took my diagnosis of a sinus infection to slow me down. But truth be told, I was burning out before I got sick. (Probably why I got sick).

I do not take skip days, I am very bad about obsessing about the steps I take each day.

I understand now that in order to maintain a downward trend in my weight and, ultimately to maintain a goal weight, I need to find some balance.

Work hard some days and work less hard the other days. Not everyday has to be a million steps. Not everyday has to be miles walked and tons of weight lifted.

I can find ways to be less obsessive. Weigh myself less. Check my tracker less. (Maybe not even wear it some days). I'm in this to win this! I have found a renewed love of cooking. I have found more energy. And today-I tackle cleaning out some rooms of this condo!

Glad I caught my oops.
