Wow! What is is the air? I also had my first
"slip-up" (sugar was the culprit) on Saturday since starting in January. I also got right back on the horse the very next morning but I'll tell you I felt really wiped out/tired/lethargic that day and could have easily slipped
again. No other symptoms--still SO NOT
However, I made myself take the dog for a good hike out behind our house when I got up on Sunday and also went to my hot yoga class in the afternoon (hoping to sweat out the poison!)
I'm even better today--did my usual 4 mile run and then additional 30 min. walk over lunch. May take another yoga class this afternoon.
What I'm really trying to figure out is WHY I slipped up. I could tell myself it was just something I needed to do after following protocol so strictly for 5 1/2 months but I think it was more emotional than that--boredom? procrastiantion? loneliness? just plain feeling sorry for myself? This is the stuff I want to get a handle on because even after I reach my goal, these things will rear their ugly heads now and again and I'll need to continue to be strong.
I totally agree that you are all so inspirational and supportive and also for me, it was just nice to know I wasn't alone out here. Keep on keeping on everyone!
