Staying on track

I have been feeling a bit wobbly the last few days. I have had a nasty cold and in my usual way I ploughed on regardless and probably ended up more ill than if I had eased up a bit a taken a break.

When I was ill I didn’t go to my spinning classes and my eating went a bit haywire. I am feeling better but I have been putting off restarting the classes and getting my eating back in check. I cancelled this evening’s class. I have eaten cake.

I have been reading a lot of blogs and yesterday I came across one by someone who is going down the moderation route and it seems to be working well. I know I can’t moderate – I’m an all or nothing kind of girl -but I found reading the blog triggery.

I have some alarm bells ringing. Missing the spin class when I am well enough to go, putting it off until tomorrow, is an important sign that I need to take action to get myself back on track. So I have rebooked the class and I am going in 30 minutes.

  1. Hi Tori,
    I know I can’t read blogs where they are moderating, either.
    I got a little sick myself, and I didn’t get my yoga class.
    I know being sick can throw me off, and I have to be really careful about my self care and self talk.
    I hope you are feeling better!

  2. Tori, it sounds like you are very self aware and that’s a good thing. Giving yourself a break when you are ill is good but also having the strength to get back into your routine once you are better is awesome. I too cannot read blogs of people who are moderating. I will check in on them sometimes to see how they are getting on and the interesting thing is that the moderation ‘goalposts’ they set always seem to be moving. It’s a gradual thing that the person probably doesn’t even notice, but I do. I’m an all or nothing person like you. I know I cannot moderate. To be honest it sounds boring and exhausting. I hope you enjoyed your spin class x

  3. I can’t read about moderating, either, too triggery! One of the reasons I have to avoid reading certain threads on certain supportive sites online …. Being ill is a legitimate reason not to go to a class, though. Self care is a priority to stay on track

  4. Tori, me too re moderation. And not wanting to diss anyone’s success, I have not found any long term successful moderation blogs .. anyway, why bother. I promise you, one glass will start the whole shit off again, – stick to spinning xxx ( bossy hat off) lily xx

    1. Boss away Lily ! I just stumbled on that one. I didn’t realise it was a moderation blog at first. I won’t be going back although I really hope it works out for the person blogging x
