I looked back

Thursday, October 17, 2013

I pulled out my journal over the weekend and read some of my entries. It helped me to understand where I was, where I am now and where I want to be. It was helpful to me...a bit sad but I realized I'm not in that place anymore. I moved forward..then took a few steps back...no biggie. But I'm ready to move forward again.

I also took a look at my eating and exercise plan from almost 2 year ago..(thank you SP for keeping that available to me)... I'm eating almost the same...but I did exercise a bit more.....I need to measure and track as it was helpful....and I dropped weight...and felt healthy. But then I began working a lot of days and hours (7 days a week, 60+ hours)....and I wasn't eating my best...and I got my exercise from working....... but I did keep my home!!! Yay! After a few months of that crazy schedule I started my new job... regular hours...but I sat too much and I guess I was tired from the 7 day a week thing... and then I just gave in to the sedentary lifestyle I began to live. Sure, I would get a boost of energy and go, go, go. But I felt tired a lot...and then life presented some new things. But there is no excuse. I did what I needed to do at that time..and it's behind me. I didn't want to look back but I'm glad I did because it is propelling me forward.
I had a good week so far, not perfect, but I'm satisfied. I'm taking smaller steps, building upon what I realized were the good habits. I'm following a realistic plan that I know I can follow. Sure I'm pushing myself a bit... I need to. Otherwise I would just sit on the couch, or in front of the computer and veg.
Looking forward to a fabulous weekend!!! Wishing the same for all my SP friends.
Of course I need to post a pic or saying.....lol

    Taking a step back is very helpful sometimes. Now, go as far as you can see....When you get there, you'll be able to see a little farther! emoticon

    Sometimes looking back is a good thing - it helps give persepctive. I was scrapbooking the other night and i got dizzy looking at the photos of me as I have yo-yo'd over the past 8 years. It was horrifying to look at but when i opened my eyes and really looked, that opened my eyes to what I have to do! Hope it's the same for you. Enjoy the beautiful weekend.
