OMG! Did I ever go off track

Wednesday, May 23, 2012

I’m going to try to make this short because I don’t want to dwell on the negative, but these past five months have been truly difficult for me. Somewhere along the way I lost my mojo.

Don’t get me wrong. It’s not that I gave up; I just started doing things without my spirit being there. I think it started when I decided I wasn’t going to train for any races. I’ve been financially pressed. I’m still looking for employment, have gone to the temp agencies, have talked to friends, have taken workshops, have done everything possible and still, I am unemployed.

Slowly but surely I began to notice that my pants were starting to feel snug around the waist. I was craving foods that I could resist when I was training because I needed to have good food going into my body for my long runs. One treat became two, then three, and then I couldn’t do without them.

Today, I feel like I’m back on track. For the last week I’ve been listening to inspirational tapes and some of them have seeped in and altered something in my consciousness. Today I’ll see if I can locate a race I can train for and just do it.

    Thanks for commenting on my blog and for letting me know that I am not alone in this. I guess this is just one of those things that makes this a LIFESTYLE and not just another diet. Learning to maintain all the progress and to balance it with everything else that life throws at us is just another step forward......and as it was with the battle of the scale in the beginning, sometimes the progress is slower and sometimes faster and sometimes it is even a small slip backwards but we need to continue to hold on to the Spark and keep pushing on.
