The very next day....NOT!
OK, so it has been almost a month and a half since I updated my journal. I hate to admit it, but I let pretty much everything get to me and escalate my stress levels. My fault completely. My food choice where well, let's just say not even close to being primal. One slip became another slip, and then another and somewhere the towel just got thrown in. The result of all of is was a 6 pound weight gain and a lot of sitting on my bum (read no exercise what so ever). I also took my measurements on the first of the year and was disappointed to see that some inches had reappeared that i had worked to hard to get rid of. I was feeling completely miserable, yet caught up in my own downward spiral.
Then last Sunday happened, just like they do every 7 days. It is like I finally woke up. I am in control of my choices....they are mine! I made a monster pot of chili so I could have leftovers, planned out the menu for the week making sure there was not anyway poor food choices could trip me up, planned out ways to manage my stress and vowed not to get caught up in the crazy, nonproductive part of work-life.
The result, my mind feels clearer and more focused on the important things, I actually listened to my body and did not end up gorging myself (even on primal foods), and managed to get in a couple of great, therapeutic walks. I feel awesome.
