I passed out tons of buttons at VidCon 2012, and I enjoyed the experience.
Now I’m home. I’m glad to be here with my husband and my cat, Boodie.
I feel tired, bloated, a bit heavier, AND motivated to step up my diet and exercise activities. Recently I’ve been overeating, and underexercising mainly because I’ve been directing my attention and energy elsewhere. So, here in my maintenance lifestyle, I need to refocus and shift some of my priorities, moving my food and exercise up on that list, and some of my other activities further down on the list.
Even after all these years, it takes a great deal of effort for me to keep the focus that is necessary for me, personally, to maintain my weight-loss. When my focus shifts, I overeat, and my weight goes up. My lifetime of overeating tendencies and habits have not disappeared, but are always lurking, ready to return during periods of inattention.
There is an inner part of me that says… “just take a bit of time to rest up before diving back into your quest for a better diet and more exercise”… but I’ve learned that a day, turns into several days, into a week, into a month… with resulting upward weights. So it is important for me to face myself immediately. To hold myself accountable for my past overeating, and to focus on immediately following through with making the effort it takes me to eat and exercise in a healthy manner.
So, today, it’s back to work.
