Slipper Slope, Part II (Or Running Into My Old Self Lately)
Wednesday, October 20, 2010
Well, my family "reunion" came and went. Turns out it was more a family dinner since only a few were able to make it. Didn't do too badly. Didn't do too well either. I'll take it though. I went over my daily allotment by only 200 calories or so.
I met my old self and stared her down repeatedly for the past 2 or 3 months. The result? I have come through it and am now settling back into my Spark routine. The cravings that I experienced for about a month or two are abating and I find myself doing better. If this continues (and I plan for it to), I'll be really back in the swing within another week or so.
Eating has been healthier; I bring healthy snacks (mostly fruit) to work for the afternoon, and two ribs of celery stuffed with one 35 calorie light Laughing Cow garlic cheese spread has been another tasty snack. I will say that I have continued to log my food and exercise everyday, never missing and that has also kept me accountable to myself.
So that's it, that slope wasn't as slippery as I feared.
Yep, I'm pretty much back in the saddle and I have a few Spark friends, you know who you are, to thank for their positive example .
