I sit in my humble home office once again, looking forward (yes...looking forward) to going back to work tomorrow as I was a little home / work-sick while I was away. Don't get me wrong, I completely enjoyed the sun, the ocean, the adventures, the time with my people and I did find myself not thinking about behaviour change for a solid 15-20 hours at least...but after a good head shake and bitch-slap, I smartened up. I didn't miss my office much (although I really missed the glorious smile of my hardworking administrative assistant), but I certainly missed my work. I love what I do. I think it is because of this, I don't need much time away from it to want to go back.
|Here they are...golden discs of |
I had a very insightful comment on my last blog (thank you, Anon) about the ability to enjoy a vacation without thinking that the muffin top you got rid of will make a comeback or you will loose all the fitness gains you made before you left. Although it maybe nice to include the four food groups in each meal and exercise every day, real life health (in my opinion) is about spending time with family and friends and enjoy time away from the usual once in a while. If, while on vacation, you can't relax until you have your morning gym time or are antsy or worried about eating well or the fat you will gain....you may want to revisit your definition of health. It may be that your fear of fat or fitness loss is controlling you more than you care to admit.
|This was great (in theory) but all|
hell broke loose when I saw the
fries, nuggets, and pizza! It's nice
to have goals anyway.....
.....so I'm back to work, back to exercise, back to a diet full of veggies and looking forward to a month of baking and Holiday parties. As IF I won't be blogging about that!
That's all I got.
