Back to Basics (I fall off the wagon sometimes too)

Time for some honesty

As I’ve shared previously, I’ve been on a healthy living journey for about 18 months now.  It’s not always easy and I fall off the wagon just like anyone else.  I’m only human after all.

I’ve been going through the motions for a few weeks, probably months now. Things have been rough at home.  My husband has been working late most nights.  G’s OCD has come back just about as bad as before we went to Mayo Clinic (you can read about that here if you are interested). Thankfully, now we have the tools to get her back on track but doing all those exposures is exhausting for her and me.  This leaves me open to falling back into my anxiety and depression, which leads to my bad habits.

I’ve let it get the better of me. While I’ve been getting in my workouts they’ve been half-assed and my eating has been WAY off track.  I’ve resorted to comfort food way too many times.  I don’t know why I believe the peanut butter when it tells me it will make everything better.  What?  I’m the only one who can hear the peanut butter?  I can tell that I’ve slacked, both on the scale and in how I feel.

New day, new attitude

portion fix containersBut that ends today!! I pushed hard in my Hammer & Chisel workout this morning (notice all that sweat on my shirt?) and I got my Portion Fix containers back out. No more half- assed workouts and no more “eyeballing” portions or resorting to comfort food!   Yes, I’m having issues in my home life but that should be a REASON to work out and eat right, not an EXCUSE! I need to be strong to help my little girl and myself!

 

Why am I sharing this?

– For accountability! Yes, I’m a coach but that doesn’t mean I don’t need help.
– Because I’m human! I fall off the wagon too. diminishing intent
– To show you that you can start or start over too, at any time!

You don’t need a New Year or month or whatever. Just a new day! What have you been putting off?  Start now!
