When school let out in June I had travel plans and told my Weight Watchers leader I was going to be gone for a couple weeks, but I would be back afterwards. But I didn’t return.
I made the choice to cancel my Weight Watchers membership and not worry as much about tracking points and my weight during our move this summer.
For a time I loved not having to track my food. I have even loved the decision I make each day to not workout and use that time for packing, planning or even relaxing during this time of moving all the while keeping all the other items on my to-do list up to date.
For the most part it has been enjoyable to feel somewhat “free” from the health requirements I put on myself, but it has also been hard.
And physically too.
Because when I’m not exercising regularly I don’t eat as well and that leads to feeling pretty blah in general.
I don’t like it, but I had to make the choice to be okay with it for now.
Some people power on through life events keeping to their fitness and diet regimes intact, but I’m just not one of those people. I do have other priorities that I keep in place, like my morning time of Bible reading and prayer, but I had to choose to let some things slide.
It’s hard being okay with a choice that puts my health down on the list of to-do’s, but I know it’s not forever and I’m learning to accept that it was necessary [for me] right now.
