I'm back from the holiday slump

Thursday, January 13, 2011

I had a really stressful holiday. My dog was pregnant and due on New Years Day. I had to drive to Minnesota right after Christmas and help my sister with whelping. We have two new little male puppies born on New Years Day. Then I had to leave her there and drive back. The trip is normally 10 hours. This time, I got a flat tire as I started out. Called and had road service put on the spare. On the way to the tire place, I got a ticket for running a stop sign. Then had to wait for the tires to be done and didn't get on the road till 11:00 AM. Then had to deliver two dogs to different places along the way. I didn't get home till 10:30 PM. Talk about exhausted. Now I am missing my dog like crazy. I will be going back for her of course, but right now, she's being a mommy.

I just stopped Sparking during all of this. And once you stop, it's easy to not get started again. I did weigh myself and had only gained one pound during three weeks off. That's pretty amazing and it motivated me to get started again. I'm glad to be back and am tracking again.

    Life has a way of getting in the way. The difference is that your back on track. That puts you miles ahead of the pack.
