Getting back on track?!

Getting back on track?

Not quite sure if it’s getting back on track, or just recommitting to health and wellness.

It has been awhile since I’ve been consistent here. Life happened. I lost track. Gained some weight and had some other health issues I needed to address. Parents getting older and their health struggles.Then there was hurricane Harvey. Twelve years after Katrina forced us out of New Orleans, Harvey came to Houston and once again we were forced to start over again.

The stress of this year has taken a toll on me, mindbodyspirit. I am ready to finish strong for the year. Progress not perfection is gonna be the way for me. I am grateful that at least this time I have not gained 30lb+ the past couple of months. That’s what happened 12 years ago. Emotional eating has not been as out of control as it was in the past. Low back and hip issues have kept me from exercising as much as I would like to, but that doesn’t mean I can’t do something.

Progress not perfection
Slow and steady
Moderation not deprivation
Love myself
Be compassionate with myself
Forgive myself

I’m ready to start before Thanksgiving. Why not?!? Nothing too extreme because I won’t stick to it. More veggies. Less sugar. More movement. And keep on loving myself through the process. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Love all the positive vibes coming from your blog. And some very good reminders for me. Hope you have a lovely, less-stressful, holiday ahead. emoticon emoticon

    We're right in the same place and I think your attitude is inspiring. I got derailed after some setbacks and caring for my Dad who died in May. I was glad to be able to be there for him, but he was crazy for fast food and of course, I didn't let him eat alone:) The long & short of it is that 28 pounds have found me once more, and truly, a 40 pound loss would be good for me! I am having a hard time getting started with a new and improved plan for healthy eating. I do love to walk. So I'm rooting for both of us! And how smart of you before the extra 5 pounds from holiday eating creeps on. I'm with you! emoticon emoticon emoticon
