Mood: Unsettled

Thursday, December 03, 2015

It started yesterday and I just ignored! Sure enough, this morning, this unsettling mood is still present. I've viewed a list of moods in an attempt to pinpoint this feeling and "UNSETTLED" appears to be, perhaps, the best word to describe.

I am such a word person and so to the dictionary to define; of course a number of them and seemly this one might be most accurate: "to vex or agitate the mind or emotions of; upset; discompose" (http://dictionary.reference.c

Question: What is it that seeks to unravel my inner poise? emoticon

Up to this point and over the past 7 weeks, I have felt very settled, an inner resolve, grounded, etc.,--- the last couple days, I feel as if I'm being challenged to revisit the old habits and consider slightly altering my course. Why, I DO NOT KNOW! I feel as if OLD HABITS and EXCUSES are attempting to resurface to challenge my personal STANCE and conviction regarding my weight loss journey!

It's a bit disturbing to me that this mindset still exist after so much time spend re-training the mind, eating well, moving the body,...with so many great resources at my fingertips for success, there is still yet this propensity to consider the old...wow!!!

Will it ever go away? I just don't want to deal with this mental struggle ANYMORE- so very disappointing but despite the urge to go back or stop especially when I keep experiencing,
Major Water Retention
Fluctuation w/lbs
Sleeping Habits Sucks
Water Consumption not the greatest, I've tired flavoring

I CONTINUE, somewhat perplexed by this; nevertheless, ENCOURAGED to CONTINUE my course. Journaling, really helps me out as it gives me an opportunity to sort through and secure my footing so that there is no UNNECESSARY delays while on my weight-loss journey.

Staying the Course,

    emoticon 12-4-15 Notes from my busy day! My 'baby step' is to get back to Goal, (7# to go, 1/2 # a week) I generally release weight this time of the year, because if I do not keep things 'real' I will gain the 12# the average American gains between THX & Valentine's day! emoticon emoticon

    Tomorrow is the Las Vegas Santa 5K, at the Freemont Experience. I will be wearing my SPARK PEOPLE head dress & handing out my SP 'business' cards, in case I can help someone, learn about 'baby steps'. IT WORKS! emoticon Let's ALL CHOOSE health! It is a balancing emoticon act worth pursuing, right? Are you IN? emoticon

    You will go through these times. I still have old thoughts resurfacing after 5 years of maintenance. Work through them. You can do it.

    Remember, you're still ON the journey. This is a positive. Problems, concerns and "bumps in the road" are all part of the journey. Travel on!
