Course Correction

Oh. My. Word.   My eating was off the rails this past weekend.  I just wanted to scarf down food at a pace that was mind boggling.   Ok, it wasn’t a constant influx of food, but it certainly wasn't the quality and quantity of food that I SHOULD have been eating.  

My only consolation was that I DID run a 5k on Friday night.  I DID do manual labor outside for 2 hours on Saturday and on Sunday I DID walk 5 plus miles with Sherry.  At least I wasn't inactive to boot.

So, it is time for a course correction.  It’s time to turn this ship around and head in the correction direction.  I started this morning and I have been eating dead on with what I have planned.  No ifs ands or buts.  Actually, I’m not really hungry for the rest of my lunch.   Guess I didn't really need those animal crackers. ;-)

Eating is only one aspect of my course correction.  The next aspect is exercise.   I have been lax about my routine.  NO MORE.  For me, to help keep me on the straight and narrow, I have to be exercising daily!


The last aspect of my course correction is my ‘bet’ withmy friend.  That bet should have been over this upcoming Friday.  However, we were talking yesterday and we both just kind of fell off track on this.  SO, we scratched that and restarted as of this morning.  Better late then never!

My food is on target for today (As long as I avoid snacking tonight). I also ran this morning, so I'm doing pretty good!

Every day, every hour is another chance to do it right. :) You can do it!

Maintain your awareness - it doesn't need to be a straight path as long as it's forward.

Good for you for making those course corrections before things really got out of control.
