Getting back on track
Why is it when someone wants to start a diet plan there is inevitably always something that puts that plan off track?
"I'll start dieting tomorrow after this party/wedding/vacation..."
"I'll start dieting when my stress at work/in my family/in my social circle isn't so bad..."
"I'll start dieting when auditions are over/rehearsals begin/the gaping wounds in my mouth heal..."
So here I am again, trying not to beat myself up for going off track. Life happens. I'm trying to break that habit of mine where I dump on myself for not sticking to a plan or getting off track.
So here we go again...last night I went to yoga for the first time in 2 weeks. It was incredibly challenging and I felt great afterwards. Tonight I'll do my Biggest Loser workout DVD. I'm trying to ignore my screaming hunger because I'm adjusting my appetite again, which is probably the hardest part of dieting. I remember when X and I started Weight Watchers last fall how frustrated we were for the first 2 weeks because we felt hungry all the time. We were eating a lot less than what we were used to (a small serving of pasta versus the entire box). So begins the appetite adjustment and filling it with water and taking 8 trips to the bathroom a day...which is becoming part of my exercise routine.
So somebody share with me! What causes you to fall off track or what is currently taking you off track from your diet/exercise/self care plan?
