Hey Sparkfriends,

This has been the story of my life for the past few days!! After the awesome victory on Friday morning, my day just went on a downward spiral. I didn't do the workout videos that I should have in the evening and then to top it off I went on a serious binge. All in all it wasn't a successful day but did I cry or mope about it? NOPE!! As my Sparkfriend Ola so profoundly said the other day "I realize that I don't want to boo hoo about my slip ups anymore because it is wasted energy. I would rather spend the energy dusting off my shoulders and keep it moving." Can you say emoticon

Anyway, that is exactly what I did on Saturday morning. I woke up and did my Focus T25 Dynamic Core and Focus T25 Upper Focus videos which I nearly nailed and nailed respectively. I also stayed within all my nutrient ranges and my calorie range. emoticon for Saturday!!

This morning however marked my plans going awry again. I had planned to do my Speed 2.0 video and Stretch video to complete the videos for the past week but I don't know if my alarm didn't go off or I turned it off while sleeping but I didn't wake up until it was time to get ready for church. Thus no workout emoticon Some way, somehow I'll have to try and get them in this week but I'm not sure yet where I'll fit them in.

So that's what's been going on. Those were the struggles and victories of the past week, today however marks a new day and a new week.

Thanks for your time. emoticon emoticon

    emoticon thanks for the shout out and I am glad the words helped. I can tell you that you have come a long way in your journey here on sparkpeople. I used to read how the slip ups get you down and now you acknowledge it and press on. That is the growth of a winner. Pray on your time and its management. God will find a way to help you get your fit in. It may seem like a small thing but we already know there is nothing small in His eyes. Stay strong and keep slaying those workouts! emoticon emoticon

    A slip up here and there is only human! It's so good to see that you don't totally give up when you go a little overboard. That's how I am, too, although I should've lost a lot more weight by now than I have. But I see my cup as half full because if I didn't keep trying, I would probably weigh a lot more now than I do.
