I have been on a little holiday with Willow to visit our family and friends in Adelaide. I decided that on this occasion I would let myself relax and enjoy the surroundings and by that I mean food and a little champagne. Mum and Dad are kicking goals with their healthy lifestyle so it was easy keeping in check when I was home with them but anywhere else I was in free fall and it’s okay, I had planned for it. I had such an amazing time catching up with everyone, introducing Willow and celebrating birthdays that I put my weight loss secondary and the scales reflected this. I’m not sure I know too many people who can maintain while on holiday, I wish I could but the enjoyment of sharing a meal with my friends and family was too great.
This sort of bump in the road has thrown me off on previous occasions, made me doubt myself and brought forward feelings of failure. I won’t accept this anymore as this is my life. There will be times when I go away and let go but that is all a part of the balanced lifestyle that I am aiming to lead. Less bumps and more wins but it’s the wins that are worth focusing on.
In the past there is no way I would have jumped on the scales a day after coming home. Avoiding the truth bomb is a way of accepting that holiday eating is a part of everyday life. Not anymore I forced myself on to those scales dragging my feet but I would not allow myself to be disappointed. I knew what I was getting myself in to.
