where did I go?

Wednesday, August 01, 2012

This time last month, I was really progressing with exercise,and starting to lose weight consistently again, and then life hit. Where did i go?

Its amazing how a few events can throw you off trackk, and no matter what this website or anyone tells you, it is up to you, and you alone to get or keep the motivation to get through and continue toward your goals, or let it derail you completely, or just put you at a standstill.

I was just halted, when my family suffered two deaths in the family days apart, in my family and then in my husbands. Not to mention we are struggling so much with our finances, as is most of the middle working class, and then after that, I managed to get the worst summer sinus infection i think i have ever had. well the list could go on and on. They could be called excuses , but drama can stop all progress, or you can fight it. This month i did not fight it , I let it stop all of my progress , and try to reverse engines.

Anyway what I have learned over over the past few weeks, is that i need to fight for everything if i truly want it, and what i do have i need to truly be thankful for. and this is in all aspects of life not just my continuing fight with diet and exercise. it just happened to be my diet and exercise that suffered over the last month. So when life happens at its hardest, I need to keep going and let event be momentum to go further no more derailment.

Today i am back and I cleared out all my monthly comfort foods, and called my trainer and apologized profusely for not calling. Believe it or not, I havent gained any weight over the month, I just lost out on momentum, consistency, and a flow of looking leaner and feeling better, which would have carried my thru had I let it in the first place.

So where did i go? I am not sure, but i am back for more , and we will not have to ask this question again:)

    DEBK0923 is correct, and so are you. We also had loses. It is very difficult for us all to have loses, but the refrigerator can be a great friend. I know if I hadn't been in this situation living with my sister, I probably would have gained all my weight back on.

    Put some time for you alone each day, to think, pray, meditate, whatever, just for you.. Throw all your troubles behind you, so you can think only of today.

    You are #1. We are all here for you if needed. Love Joyce emoticon

    I know first hand what you have experienced with loss of family, money difficulties etc... I lost my son, my cat, my dog, my mother, and my job in a five year period. I did great losing as well as you until all of this, I gained it all and more. You are correct we are the ones to control our emotions and not slide but we must grieve as well. after 5 years of grieving I told myself " what are you doing to yourself girlfriend " I started meditating to find who or what I wanted now that my life has changed. I then began a daily relaxation to calm me down, for tears flowed more frequent after my losses. After I mastered that I began my new journey through life, and it's a fight til the end. What I want to say is your downfall from schedule is from grief, it will pass but not forgotten, then pick yourself up and start again. I'm cheering for you. emoticon
