"Yes, I have doubted. I have wandered off the path. I have been lost. But I always returned." Helen Hayes

I have wandered and doubted this week. I have also returned to make it better.

The difference before is that I just kept wandering...I just kept eating a donut with my breakfast bagel. I just kept sitting inside on a gorgeous sunny day. I just kept not caring about my body and my health and me.

I am actually not stressing about my weigh-in on Sunday. Even if I gain. Even if I gain.

I love waking up in the morning and not feeling grogy. I love choosing the clothes I'm going to wear and not have a muffin top sneaking out from under my jeans. I love that my skin is soft and clear because of the seas of water I've been gulping down. A donut is soo not worth trading for these victories.

Do you ever stray? How do you return?

  1. I actually don't know you at all, but my cousin follows your blog and I have recently experienced how great blogging can be. Anyway, I was interested in your blog because it said "faith". That is something that I struggle with for myself all the time. Believing in yourself is half the battle(sometimes more) isn't it? To get myself back on track, I think of who I truly am. I think of the great things that I do and that I deserve to be happy. That donut doesn't want you to be happy, :) ( I know, I know, sometimes it tricks you into thinking that it does, but it doesn't) So, for me, I have to remember me and why I am great. I have a great personality, but I deserve the happy, healthy body that I am wanting too. Anyway, I hope that helps or at least gets more ideas flowing. :) Good Luck!


Speaking without thinking is like shooting without taking aim...I'd love to hear from you - just be nice to each other - and me :)
