What was that?????

Monday, September 28, 2015

It's been two weeks since I've logged in to SparkPeople.

What was THAT???

I thought I had my act together, I'd made good plans, set shorter term goals, and hauled my carcass out of bed to exercise in the a.m.

Interestingly enough, I did continue to exercise.

I haven't weighed in yet, so I have no clue how far I've "backslid."

On the positive side, I was able to keep up with a very active 4 year old on Saturday. And I haven't been binge eating.
On the negative side, I have not been tracking my food, or exercise, or water, or steps.

This isn't about appearance, or clothes, or self-image. This IS about getting myself healthy, stopping the self sabotage, facing the fact that I AM THE ONLY ONE responsible for my health & wellbeing.

I'm here to confess that I have goofed this up big time. I need to get healthy, not just to fit better into my clothes, or to get big discounts on my health insurance. I need to do this for the right reason -- to be a good steward of the one body with which I've been blessed.

It was so awesome to log in today and catch up on everyone's blogs. SparkPeople is a huge blessing. I know that I would have failed miserably before now if it weren't for my SparkFriends.

Hugs to all of you -- and yes, I'm cheering you on!

    It sounds as if you are doinf just fine. But, yes, I agree that tracking is important because you can pinpoint exactly what you are earing in terms of carbs, protein, fats and fibre. Also it pinpoints what food categories one needs to 'ramp up'!
