Don't be so hard on yourself! Take some of the emotion out of this process. You simply made a choice. That choice didn't help you towards where you want to be, but you know what to do now. Sometimes Life does get in the way, and despite our best intentions we can't stay fully on the plan. Try to focus on what you DID accomplish when you weren't in your normal routine. Give yourself a pat on the back for that, and know that it will be OK. It's a marathon that takes a lifetime to finish after all, not a sprint. Cheers!
