Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate you taking time out of your day to read my musings.
I have been struggling with my ride on the wagon. I keep falling off, and can't seem to keep my place. In losing my place, I lost myself. I couldn't quite figure out why I couldn't get back on the wagon I had come to know and love so well. Then it dawned on my that I was pushing out a very important part of my healthy lifestyle equation. Support and Accountability. I had always had this, but stopped tapping into this resource when I needed it most. I have amazing people in my life who lift me up and keep me going. I turned my back on them. Also, I stopped being accountable with myself, by doing the research and self development that was helping me keep my head in the game.
When I first started losing weight, I found that keeping myself educated on various topics helped keep me accountable and pushing towards my weightloss goals. Building on what I learned the week before helped me keep on track, break through plateaus, and understand how what I was doing effected my body.
Ultimately, this feeds into the other two parts of what keep me on track. The two attributes that I have the most control over. That is my diet and exercise. I realized this when I was really digging into my soul to understand how I had gained almost all of the weight back. I need these three things all the time in some capacity in my life to maintain my health. I call it my Weightloss Trifecta.
