March 29th, 2016 I'm Okay

March 29th, 2016 I'm Okay

The last couple of days have been two of the most challenging I've experienced in a very long time. I kept up very well last week, and it too was a busy one, but wow--the last two days have had it all; Lots of extra responsibilities at work, busy schedule at home and an unexpected circumstance or two thrown in to keep me on my toes.

I really should have leaned on my support team a little better, last night. I made it through. And all things considered, I have consistently utilized excellent support connections 95% of the time--and it makes a powerful positive impact. So really, I'm proud of this.

I'm not proud to report that this will be my third day in a row without making it to the gym. I've done my very small morning push-up routine--and that's it. I had every intention of the workout last night and tonight. Both night's, the plan had to be modified midstream. Tonight it was work projects I underestimated, that took an hour and a half longer than planned.

Okay--I'm going to declare right here and now, I'm not beating myself up over this. It's something of a thing--and things change. It's certainly not the end of the world. But it is important for the balance in my maintenance plan. All I can do is pick up and move forward. After all, this trek has never been about perfection.

It's about progress--not perfection. It's about consistency instead of intensity. It's about keeping it simple and sustainable not complicated and nearly impossible to maintain.

I'm okay.

Tomorrow is weigh day. The only reassurance I have is the certainty found in maintaining the integrity of my food plan. The last two weigh days, I've spent the night before adding up how many workouts I didn't complete--and then worrying how that lack of activity will affect my weight the next day. My maintenance calorie budget is 2300. That's a bunch to me. And that kind of a budget relies on a consistent workout schedule in order to balance well. At least, that's my perception--and it seems to be confirmed by my maintenance track record thus far. We'll see together, tomorrow.
