It’s been too long, and it’s completely my fault. I went on vacation, I fell off my diet and I landed in a ball-pit of fattening food happiness. I think I’ve felt almost ashamed to write. My healthy driven, goal oriented “Kinetic Kate” was back to her glutenous self.
I’m not getting myself down, though. Here is what I realized.
It’s OK to fall off the diet wagon. It’s OK to eat a donut because a 6 year old is having a birthday and they walk up to your desk with big doe-eyes, while wearing a blinking birthday button, carrying a Krispy Kreme box. Who can turn that down?
I’m blessed to have a fast metabolism. I know it’s only a matter of time before it starts to sputter out. It’s like I’m a fairly new car, and I’m watching the miles tick on; waiting for the check engine light to come on.
My weight has stayed pretty much the same since I was dieting. Will that last forever? No. Will I go back on a diet? Yes, with moderation. I do not think I can go back to the hard-set BAD-A diet. I now remember how delicious chips are. I can, however, go back to the BAD-A (CD) diet. Bring on those cheat days!
Something else I’ve learned since we last spoke (typed?).
Follow your dreams.
It doesn’t matter if it’s health related, love related and or work related. You get one life. Do not let it down.
Follow them- even if it’s across the county….
