Progress Report: Spiraling to a new beginning

Progress ReportProgress Report

Two weeks to a new beginning.  

This post is a progress report or lack there of.  Yesterday was a terrible day at work.  I came home and has pizza.  You can multiply that times 8-10 days and that has been the last nearly two weeks for me since the last twice annual sudden cardiac event (physical fitness test).  We are required to make weight and take a physical fitness test twice a year.  I passed both but required a body fat tape to pass the weight.  I swore this would never happen again the day of the test and since then I have allowed events to get a little out of control.  

I need to exercise and maintain the integrity of my calorie budget.  I just have not done a great job in this area for the last 12 months.  My big issue is sugar in the form of refined sugar.  For the most part, a sugar-free life style with ample amounts of fiber, water, and vegetables has been the key to my success in the past.  To be honest, the weight start back on when I started drink more diet soda.  

Let’s face it, I have exceeded the length of any prior periods of a healthy lifestyle in my past.  I was effectively at a healthy lifestyle for nearly 3 years and the last twelve month have been less successful than prior years.   exceeded my daily water goal, and I stayed well connected with exceptional support.

It is time to cut the soda, sugar, and begin cooking for myself.  I have to do this for me and my family.   There is not option.  I will start first thing Monday morning with a fresh week.  It is time like this when I must be extra diligent with my daily practice.  Instead of letting rough days drag me down, I need to grab the rough day by the horns and wrestle it to the ground.
