It’s Sunday night and I am thinking ahead to a week that is going to be full of challenges for both eating and getting some good exercise into my routine. Lindsey is leaving Tuesday for vacation, and any of you who have been following along on my journey will know what that means. There is part of me that feels like the training wheels are coming off the bike, and I am gonna have to pedal hard, keep my balance and keep my bike on the road and not veer off course… toward the bakery.
This week our biggest opera of the season opens which means it is stress, long days, and temptations to contend with but I have to remember the support is there, the decision is mine and mine alone to make good choices. I am going to blog every night no matter what time I get home or how tired I am. This is the promise I am making in the “shout it to the world” way of accountability that seems to work for me.
I will write about my day, thoughts, feelings and reflections but most importantly I have to write down what I eat each day, everything…no exceptions. I have to write down my exercise for the day. Everyday this week Monday-Sunday this is what you can expect to see on the blog. This is the kind of week that unhinges my door, cracks my coffee mug, leaving just the smallest crawlspace opportunity to dance with the past if it sneaks in…. but I am gonna be ready for it. As Linds has said so many times before….”you got this”, I sure hope so….we are about to find out, that is for sure.
