The Domino Affect

Tuesday, July 06, 2010

It started as any other day; a healthy breakfast and a shower. But this day was slightly different I was visiting the doctor about my knee and was told no working out for 7-10 days. That means no Zumba, no running...oh no. I decided that in order to make it through the next week and a half I must remain positive and eat as normal as possible. Well that sounds good and all but the next day was our trip to Cedar Point. For those of you who are unaware of what this is, it is an amazing amusement park in Sandusky, Ohio. Well needless to say my food choices for the day were horrible. Then because of walking on my bad knee for 10 hours I was then down for 2 straight days after returning from Cedar Point. I was exhausted and sore; eating healthy was the least of my concerns to say the least.

For the next 7-10 days I found myself slipping even farther into this abyss I had created for myself; not thinking one bit that it would be a bad choice...are you kidding me? It wasn't that I was gorging myself with food, I was just not making the right choices in my selections and I felt, well might as well since I am on the injured list....wrong answer darlin, you should have stuck with it and got back on track sooner than this. I do not want to get on that scale and see what I have done to myself. I am even struggling with getting back into this workout routine. Now I am using the excuse that the heat is just too unbearable to endure.

So today I declare my intervention to myself.
* You must take back your life.
* You must find your mojo.
* You must eat better.
* You must work out.
* You must love yourself.
* You must find acceptance in life's mistakes.
* You must forgive yourself.
* You must not forget, but learn from this.
* You must move on.
* You must want this.
* You must......do this now!!!

I AM back on track and I will stay with this. This minor speed bump will not conquer my ambitions to be a healthier, happier me!

    Great blog. Good for you to take back your healthy lifestyle. We all go a little nuts sometimes. I just did so this weekend for celebrating Mom's 84th birthday as well as the 4th of July. But those margaritas tasted so good. The key is to get right back on track and never totally give up on yourself. you are worth a healthy happy life.
    Loved your self intervention.

    Isn't it weird how it all seems okay to do until you realize you're going to have to get on that scale and the numbers won't be telling you any white lies to make you feel better?? Been there too often than I'd like to admit! I hope your knee feels better soon.

    Good for you! Glad to see your determination is strong. Some times I've found that if I'm off track for a couple of days it works in my favor and I loose weight faster over the next week or so. I hope it works that way for you too!

    Great list! I found myself in the same position for a couple of weeks and it is tough to get back on track. I pushed the re-set button and I'm back on board. You are too! Keep your must list close and you'll rememember why you are making the right choices!

    Keep on keepin' on...
