too much chocolate, not enough vegetables

Hi all, I have to confess that I have gotten off track a little for a few weeks. Slowly I have been reducing my veggies and fresh foods and consuming more chocolate, nuts, and processed carbs. My weight has gone up from 183 to 186. Why do I do this, why, why don't I continue my health challenge for myself? I continue my moderate daily exercise, about half the amount I was doing, so an hour or so about 5 days per week.

Hi Laura. You definitely are not alone. At least you are catching it while you are still ahead. You are still doing really good as far as the exercise goes:)

Why do you do this? Just like me, Laura. Because you can. It's as simple as that.
We give ourselves permission to do this to ourselves over and over until we get it right and get used to doing it right. It may take years of trying but I'm sure, in the end, we will get there because we know what and how, just haven't bitten the bullet and decided exactly.....when.
I'm up there too. I had been eating for consolation... or whatever the daily reason for the splurges was.... It doesn't matter the excuse, does it? lol....... I'm kissing close to 190 again and I'm uncomfortable in my clothes and with the way my old friend, "fat", is making its unwelcome appearance again.
That said, I started back on my new, old, improved journey again a couple of days ago. I haven't been great with it, but I'm taking the necessary steps to get better.
I'm beginning to understand that with some of us, it's not just getting there that matters, but the learning process we go through to achieve our goals that may actually matter most in the end.

Just keep learning, Laura. It really is the best thing we can do for ourselves.

Well said, Kim. It is the learning I go through as I achieve my goals that matters most in the end. I have been learning that I am worth it to live a healthier life. I keep making steps in that direction. I am physically healthier, more muscular, more fit. My thought processes are sharper, my clothes are smaller, my nutrition is improved, my relationship with myself and others is getting better. Woot! GO CARDINALS!

It was an unusual situation but the correct call.
OBSTRUCTION is the act of a fielder who, while not in possession of the ball and not in the act of fielding the ball, impedes the progress of any runner.Rule 2.00 (Obstruction) Comment: If a fielder is about to receive a thrown ball and if the ball is in flight directly toward and near enough to the fielder so he must occupy his position to receive the ball he may be considered "in the act of fielding a ball." It is entirely up to the judgment of the umpire as to whether a fielder is in the act of fielding a ball. After a fielder has made an attempt to field a ball and missed, he can no longer be in the "act of fielding" the ball. For example: an infielder dives at a ground ball and the ball passes him and he continues to lie on the ground and delays the progress of the runner, he very likely has obstructed the runner.

As far as waivering from healthy lifestyle.... we are human non the less. old habits die hard. we are creatures of habit. changing anything takes a lot of hard work and sticktoitness,

All of you have made incredible strides in getting healthier. I know for me I'm way more active than I've been in previous years! I've been trying to eat a rainbow which I totally adore!!

I baked this weekend and am not happy about it! I have a client who bakes and they give everything away but they love the mission!

Have a great day all!!

Thanks Judy and Keet, I don't know everything about baseball, just played a lot of recreational softball and rules keep everyone from blocking runners. Also grew up in St. Louis with the great baseball team, really great fans that know the game, and with a great history of playing the game as a team. Win or lose, its always about doing great, or their best, as a team here.
Go Cardinals! And Boston is doing well too!
