This Isn't A Sprint. It's A Marathon.

Wednesday, May 22, 2013

To say it's been a rough month would be an understatement. To say my exercising hasn't slackened off or that my food choices haven't occasionally been unhealthy as a result would be a lie. But I haven't quit. I'm still getting back on the horse so-to-speak. And apparently I've done it often enough to keep moving in the right direction. I just weighed myself for the first time in a month and I've lost two pounds since my last weigh in. Two pounds in a month may not sound like much, but considering my words as I approached the scale were, "Let's see how much damage I've done" I think two pounds is an amazing victory. It's less than it was before and that's what matters. Forward momentum.

Over the next two weeks I have to complete not 1, 2, or even 3 projects. I have to complete no less than 7 major projects. Projects that I would normally spend an entire week on EACH. And I have to get them all done in the next two weeks. I didn't even procrastinate my way into this mess. It's just how the timing worked out. So frankly, any exercise at all during this time is a miracle as far as I'm concerned. I just have to hang in there for the next two weeks, though. It'll start to slowly let up after that. By the end of June I should be able to return to the level of attention to my exercise that I would prefer to have. And that's okay. That's life and I knew it would happen. That's why I set my goal 2 years down the road. This isn't a sprint. It's a marathon. :)

    You definitely have the right attitude about this. I'm still working on it. I keep telling myself, "You didn't put it on overnight and it won't disappear overnight either."

    So try not to go too crazy over the next couple of weeks... just keep making good choices and jump back on that horse when you can!

    You rock!!
