I started the new year with high hopes, and the seeds of my plan for healthy changes. The first three days went beautifully – I was quite happy with them.
On Wednesday and Thursday, I fell off the wagon after a car accident. Thursday was also the day that the gastroenterologist set me up for my first-ever colonoscopy (oh, yay, right?). I would get to spend half of my weekend on a clear-liquid-only diet. My brain told me a better stock up on a few (OK, maybe more than a few) extra calories, so I went a bit nuts from Thursday and Friday.
Surprisingly, though, what I’m thinking most frequently right now is that I can’t wait to get back on track with eating and working out. Just a year ago, this all would have become nothing more than an excuse to go on a binge until the first of the next month. Not this time, though – I am more than ready to return to my commitment to me.
All in all, I am feeling pretty good about things right now, despite the setbacks. I’m not letting myself be overwhelmed – I am making progress!
