Off the path, into the ditch :-(
Monday, April 14, 2008
Sigh. It's now only 4 days until my monthly progress photo gets taken and posted for all the world to see, and I can tell it's not going to be a picture of success. I have let the stresses & busy-ness of life get to me, and these last few weeks I have slipped off The Path of the Righteous Sparker and into The Ditch of the Lazy Glutton.
Oh it's a cosy ditch, my fall was cushioned by all the spongey cakes and I was instantly embraced by the warm familiarity of chocolate and greasy chips. But it's not a great place to be, so I've got to cut those strands of pesto-soaked spaghetti that are holding me down, and clamber out of the ditch before the comfort foods get too comfortable.
I have a feeling my monthly pic is going to look more like this puffy fish than a slender beauty, but that's OK. Part of the reason for doing the pics is to be honest with myself, so if it takes a step backward to urge me to take more steps forward, so be it. And if nothing else, the dread of seeing either no change at all or a change for the worse has prompted me to return to SP again, and get right back on the path where I left off.
