So... I log in today, after months again, and decide to put in this new blog. I noticed the last one I did, and it was about how I slid. Here I am again, but I'm not writing about how I slid. More how I crashed. It truly is amazing how when things are going well, you seem to forget the work it took to get there. It takes a real solid committment and conscious effort to remember, and to make sure you keep up with goals, checklists, and the like because it's so easy to let go. I went from feeling in shape for the first time in probably a decade or more to feeling as I do today. (I'd say how I feel, but I don't want to use words that would be offensive to some people, including myself). I know that when you fall off a bike as a child, you get right back on and try again. This is where I'm at now. And it seems especially hard, because I have went through the entire Tools program, and know there are specific things I should concentrate on more than others, such as exercise and routines. But at the same time, I want to start the program over and complete it a second time, so I need to decide if I will implement those parts of Tools I need desperately first and then start from Day 1, or just start at Day 1 and let the program take me there in the process. Any thoughts are more than welcome as I again try to take control of my life!
