I have fallen off the wagon

Posted on


I’ve been gone many moons, and much has transpired in my life. I no longer work at home. I accepted a new job, which has taken me in the office. The temptation is real! The struggle is long and hard. I’ve failed my mental mastery miserably. I’ve gained quite a bit of weight. I will weigh and put my numbers up soon. With my new team members, I started a 10 day green smoothie challenge, as of today. I will do the modified version. I know I will fail a full cleanse. and I know that slow and steady wins the race. Day 1 is done! I had minimum damage, and both green smoothies consumed.

Starting this journey again has me troubled. I didn’t think I would fall so hard, when my environment changed. I knew that it eventually was going to change, but I must admit of my shock. I crumbled. But is that really an excuse? At my age, there has to be a greater deal of accountability. I need to push past old fears and claims, and accept LIFE!

I didn’t need a scale to tell me that I had gained weight, because I felt it in my back and knees. Working in the office has afforded me many opportunities to move. However, movement still isn’t enough for the food and drink consumption.

Today, I am not proud, I am human, and I am flawed. I am so looking forward to getting back on track!
