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
Be compassionate with 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.
