I've canceled my upcoming workshop/seminar. It was a fairly easy decision considering my registrations numbered zero. I'll regroup and consider a different approach. I'm fine with this and still just as determined to develop these seminars. Someday, when my seminars/workshops are successful, this will be an interesting fact. "Hey, remember canceling the first one because not one single person registered?" Yep.
Today was solid on a few different levels. I make the elements of my recovery very important each day. My goals are supported by these elements of accountability and support. I'm not immune from relapse/regain, ever. I'm maintaining very well. But I'm always aware that this successful maintenance mode I'm experiencing isn't successful because I've found any sort of magic. I haven't. It's successful thus far because I make the fundamental elements of my recovery critically important each day.
Each day, I track and log all food and water in MyFitnessPal. I maintain the integrity of my maintenance calorie budget and I remain abstinent from refined sugar. As an accountability measure, I Live-Tweet the entire process each day. I stay connected with great support friends every day. I write this blog each night without fail, even if it's a really short one. Some nights I enjoy exploring certain mental/emotional elements. I've done quite a bit of this deep exploration stuff over the course of the last seven years--and especially in the last 600 plus days of daily postings during this turnaround from a 164 pound relapse/regain.
Each day, I remind myself how my continued success isn't guaranteed. I remind myself the importance of staying grounded and tightly embracing my recovery. It isn't magic but the feeling I get to experience each day I remain food-sober, is magical.
Letting the tweets take it the rest of the way. Goodnight!
