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 . emoticon emoticon

    Thanks, Brigitte.
    I'm so happy you commented since reading my own blog will be a big help to me. I've been going through something similar again, so I know I can take stock again, and re-up my commitment. I'm tired of standing still so this emoticon wants and needs to get moving again.

    Prevention is best so planning ahead your snacks is great and being aware of what you eat daily by tracking are the best ways to stop sliding down that slippery slope. Plus having the support of your friends and family is great as well! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Thank you so much, Sara. You are always so encouraging.
    Not to worry, I don't believe I've ever had emoticon in me. Have always, since childhood been a emoticon .
    Thanks again, and remember, WE can do it! emoticon emoticon

    Only 200 calories over sounds pretty darn GOOD to me!
    Glad you are feeling more on track! But you are my inspiration that says, "SLOW can work!"
    So don't turn into a emoticon !!! emoticon
