Ready to re-commit
Sunday, September 29, 2013
Since April I have gained and lost the same 5lbs probably 4 or 5 times. I recognize that it's probably just normal fluctuations but it's still frustrating and not where I want to be. In fact, this morning I weighed in at 25lbs to my goal weight.
It was a difficult summer. I've been dealing with financial problems, stress, depression... all sorts of unpleasantness that makes it difficult to stay on track. But I accept that my life won't change until I do. So I'm working on some projects that will hopefully lead me to the change I need.
One thing I'm doing is an online boot camp. It actually costs $97 for the 8 weeks but they offer a "Pay It Forward" program to their free e-mail list. This time I actually saw the e-mail before they announced it was closed! So I sent the e-mail explaining my situation and when the announced deadline came and went I figured oh well. Nothing lost. But on day 4 I had all the e-mails waiting for me when I woke up! It's been wonderful! The biggest and hardest thing they work on is the internal stuff. They want you to really think about what you're doing and why. The workouts are easy compared to the written assignments!
But I'm still not seeing the results I want. Well, I haven't logged my food in months. Maybe I'm not being honest with myself about what I'm eating. So it's time to pull up the SP app on my phone and start logging as I eat again! Maybe I can finally break past the 160 mark and reach my goal by my birthday in May. (My original goal was my birthday this past May... no worries... I have my whole life
SP was really working for me and I miss my SparkFriends so why wouldn't I hang out here more?
