I’m not going to lie, for the past 4 weeks, I have been off-track. My life has been a whirlwind of crap. If the crap isn’t happening to me, then it’s happening to those closest to me — my family.
Today is a new day. I am determined to get back on track, despite the crap. Because the thing is, being off-track only makes everything worse. It just does. I started the day off sensible and am determined to end it that way as well. I forgot how easy it is to take a slide backwards. Funny thing about the slide backwards though — it doesn’t happen all at once (even if it seems like it does). The slide backwards happens gradually. First i’m making small concessions here and there. At this point, I am still mindfully eating, though am sneaking in a few high calorie foods into my daily diet. Then, as time goes by, it snowballs until bad habits are back like old friends.
I care that I am struggling right now and have resolved to work diligently to get myself back on track. Getting off-track happens. It is part of life. However, way back when, I made a commitment to myself. I am going to follow through. That is all I know. I am going to keep moving forward.
