Day 351 – The slow fade08/26/2010
I have been eluding to the slow fade these past couple of posts. Have you noticed? I have written about my successes but my stumbles have not made it to the screen. The fade is when at allow just a little cheat here and there. You know all the rest has been great except for this little something – something I keep quiet about. Well those slow fades finally do catch up. In the past the fade picks up speed and then the successes are overcome by (Do I say it)? the cheats. So here comes the reckoning…..
If you remember I was so nervous about wasting my time in Hawaii that I didn’t allow myself to get excited about the trip. (See post) I didn’t want the time to go by and to have nothing to show for it. Shear determination led to an incredible month away of exercise and eating right. Well I should have been concerned about the time after the trip as well. I had an incredible month only to stand upon the achievement as my crowning glory but failed to really continue the success into my life back home. So I have stalled, while at the same time resting on the success of Hawaii. This is a lifestyle with not a once in a while accomplishment to hang my hat on. The true glory is the day in day out success.
So the slow fade stops NOW.
I signed up with a trainer again for twice a week workouts and swimming on the other days. I’m very excited about this because in our meeting I felt the motivation rise up within me. That determination and accountability was key in Hawaii and it will be again in my hometown. Most of the meeting was held on the treadmill which I loved. No wasted moments. Angie spoke with me about nutrition and gave me some suggestions. Ahh I have my whole team back again: my family, cheerleaders, blogger friends, and trainer a perfect combination.
I am so blessed.
