So I was slumping

For whatever reason, whatever alignment of factors :
personal biological cycle
the switch from beautiful warm to stupid snowstorm, with continued cold weather which tomorrow will shift to WARM again...
my new invisalign treatment starting up (ouch. and my TMJ acted up, my jaw on my right lower side locked up during installation of the anchors and I couldn't free it all day)

As a result, I was feeling really low, really crummy, and really ... depressed. Not to mention I ate too much over the weekend after being really raelly *on* with food and workouts.

So I felt like a failure, felt like eating more (since greasy food and sugar are both addictive triggery foods for me)

And then... I posted a lot of my feelings on one of my peertraijner groups, because I promised NO MATTER WHAT, I would comment every day on my PT group(s) unless it's physically impossible..

And guess what? Today I feel alive and on target again. I just did a 65 minute workout using cardio coach and my elliptical (and music for 15 minutes) and i feel really great and back on track.

Without my peer group giving me support and accountability, I'd have continued down the slippery slope, so THANK YOU PEER TRAINER. Thanks to both my groups (both former spotlight teams!!)

Slumping or bumming are "ALONE" feelings. Not being alone on something personal and difficult and challenging MAKES ALL THE DIFFERENCE. I can tell it will be a HUGE help for me. Keep logging..keep communicating...WE Will DO GREAT>
