31 Days of Real Life [10/11/16]

Because sometimes you just need ice cream with hot fudge.

I started Weight Watchers this summer and did well for a couple months, but then frequent traveling in August and September got me out of the groove. Since October is such a hard month, I decided to take the month off.

It hasn’t been easy. It feels a bit like failure. I could be doing a much better job. I could be losing more weight. I could make better choices. If I’m not reaching my goals right now, I must not being doing it right.

But then I remind myself of grace. My goals are long term. I want to lose weight, but living a healthy life is about more than weight. It’s going to take more than a few months to create a new healthy norm, physically, and on the way there I’m chasing after mental, emotional, and spiritual health, too.

    Heck yeah. I’m taking a little break because my sister’s getting married this Saturday (STRESSFUL WEEK!) and my 40th birthday is the next Saturday. I’ve been keeping it together, foodwise, but today I’m just at the breaking point and can’t manage the calculating and planning. Today, and for the next week at least, I’m off the wagon. Doesn’t mean I can’t get right back on again any second I choose. But right now, I need food grace.
