Time to Own it and Work on a Strong Finish!
Wednesday, November 02, 2011
I took some time off Sparks...6 weeks.
That was the same amount of time I took "off me."
I slowed down with the exercise...until I just stopped.
I stopped worrying about what I ate- I LOVE comfort food on a chilly day!
I stopped drinking my water.
I stopped getting enough sleep.
I stopped dreaming...of what goal would feel like.
I stopped thinking of new ways to stay motivated.
I stopped thinking New Year's was far away....
and I started to get lost in my failure.
I gained weight. I had done so well and I messed up.
How could I come back when I had failed?
I just don't have the energy to do what it takes right now...especially with the holidays around the corner.....
ANd it is exactly that kind of thinking that made me RUN....like heck...back to Sparks and the loving arms of those of you who know how I feel, who are struggling as I am...or those of you who didn't quit and remind me of the rewards that go with effort....I came running back to all of you who share this journey and who still choose to show up!
Here I am...
Ready to try.....
Knowing I won't be perfect...
but ready to bring things back together so I don't do any more damage to my goals and visions for 2011...
and maybe to make some more progress in the weeks that are left.
I own my mistakes and imperfections! ANd I own my place in SParktown- my home sweet home!
