I was doing some thinking today about my week. I can understand how someone can get off track with their eating and working out. This week I have eaten things I haven’t. I had cookies and a bag of Doritos one day. What made it worse was that the cookie wasn’t good at all, lol. On that day I also have two mini bags of M&Ms. The strange thing is, as I was walking to get it, I was telling myself that I should not eat it, but I kept walking to the food and I got it anyway. I also had a small brownie that day also. One of my dogs (he was 8) died this week, which made me not want to work out and when I would get home from work I would want to eat something unhealthy. I have veggie tortilla chips, so I ate some of those and then I at some a piece of my candy bar which is 73% cacao and almonds. The good thing about the candy is that much cacao is bitter, so I did not eat a lot of it. I was very sad about my dog, which made me want to eat unhealthy yesterday. I am back on track.
I say all this to say, no matter what someone looks like or what they post, you never know what they are going through. Never think you are the only one going through what you are going through. We are all on this journey that will include ups and down. Some time you will have good days, weeks and months. Sometimes you will have bad days, weeks and months. Through it all you have to find a way to stay on track when you get off. I literally wanted to stop working out in the middle of my work one day this week. But I didn’t stop, I told myself, “You are not going to stop, you are going to keep going and finish this workout.” This is what I am doing. The advice and words of encouragement I give to everyone, I have to give to myself. That is why I like posting. Because you never know what others are going through, someone may respond and say they are going through the same thing or give you advice on how to get back on track.
If you have fallen down, gotten off track, it is okay. It is time to get back up, dust yourself off and start again. Never give up, even it you start over every day.
