Transparent Tuesday (on Wednesday)

I love reading other people's weight loss/fitness/health/randomness blogs, and this week I am inspired by Emmie at www.authenticallyemmie.com to make a "Transparent Tuesday" post. The idea is to share some not-so-idyllic moments of your journey, and to capture the realness, imperfections, and bumps in the road. So here I go!

This weekend, I let an office Superbowl celebration derail me. After making a plan and bringing food that I could eat, I still couldn't resist some items. After that, I let "old Jen" take over, and somehow convinced myself that this slip-up was reason enough to throw away the entire weekend. Off-plan eating, not exercising, and overall being lazy. And you know what? I felt miserable the WHOLE TIME! I felt literally sick, and realized that my body loves (and was starting to get used to) me giving it exactly what it needs - balanced nutrition and exercise.

The good news is that I am officially back on track. I have exercised for three days in a row, my eating is back under control, and I'm feeling good! The biggest part of my journey, I can already tell, is going to be how I respond to setbacks. I will thank last weekend for reminding me of why I am doing what I am doing, and I will move on. 

By the way, the blogs to the left are some of my blogging all-stars, the blogs I read when I need encouragement, support, or a swift kick in the rear, and I highly suggest you check them out!
