Difficulty getting back on track...

Sunday, October 22, 2017

I'm starting to slide back to old unhealthy ways! It's a scary time...I've been here before. Over the past almost 10 months I've stayed on track with fitness, eating, and living healthy. I've lost close to 50 lbs. I feel fabulous...but I've had some stress to deal with lately and I went on a vacation. The vacation to Italy was magnificent...came back only 2.5 lbs. heavier. That was last week. Unfortunately this week I'm still in vacation mode. Not eating properly, certainly not moving enough and not drinking nearly enough water. I've got to find a way to get myself back into a healthier way of living. I know how easily that 50 lbs. can creep back...much quicker than the months it took me to lose it.

Any ideas my Spark friends?

    I like the Beck book. That helps wrap my brain around what and why I am doing it. Italy sounds wonderful! I am close to 10 lbs up myself and it feels like that bad out of control feeling. Right there with you! We can get back on track!

    Yes, I think it may help to try something totally new to you. Like Yoga. Its' been 5 months since I discovered Yoga, and as people say, it's true, it is for the entire mind, body spirit. And you may find they all align, as has happened with me. Which can zap your appetite

    I think it's more difficult to get back on track because you already know it's hard work. The original motivations aren't there. You already know that tracking and being faithful can be a bit of a bear.
    Try one of SP's challenges like 'Find 10' -- it's more motivation with ideas rather than a goal like running a 5K.
