I realize that this is not a 'begin again' situation. This year has been a year of making better choices. I just went two weeks of not exercising or eating right, using the excuse of family vacation to allow a hiatus in my positive decision making. I am not "starting again", instead I am continuing on the journey of remembering this is not a quick fix or short term change, this is for life. Sometimes we take different routes to get where we are going, sometimes we get a little lost on the way when we thought another direction would not take us so far off the path. We head right back over to the correct path and keep on going with our journey. I used to beat up on myself so hard for stopping and having to start all over again. Now I am realizing that I just got a little lost on the way and now I am back on track. I do not shame myself for this misstep, just realize that I am human. My scenic routes get fewer and further between as I remember that I am making life changes toward a healthier me. Hang in there, keep moving, keep going, no judgments, no shame, keep getting back on track. We can do this. I can do this!
