And it STOPS NOW!!
I don't know what got into me but I lost control there for a bit. I know I haven't been doing as great in the last few months but I really took a turn the past two weeks. This morning I took a deep breath and stepped on the scale...yikes. I'm up 10 lbs from this time last year... and quite a few inches. I know I haven't been working out as consistently and I thought my eating was pretty good - but I guess the only person I was fooling was ME! I haven't been tracking my food or exercise at all and I haven't put measurements on Spark since July even though I've weighed myself often. I saw some weight come on then I would take it off. I was up and down a bit but I never got back down to where I was at the beginning of this year. I thought my body was just readjusting to my lifestyle change...starting a new job, not getting out as often and some of the extra stress I've been dealing with. I've learned some great new habits which have stuck with me but I guess it's too easy to fall back if I'm not mindful. I also think that because I felt thinner I didn't have to watch my food as carefully or exercise as much. WRONG!!!!!
I know I have more weight to lose to reach my goal. All the years I've struggled with my weight I've never reached my goal. I always come close but then something happens. THIS is the part I need to focus on.... WHAT is going on in my head? What is this behavior all about?
So as I get back on track (yes....I'm doing it this time!!!) I'm going to look at ALL aspects of ME because I truly want to be thinner and HEALTHY in body, mind and spirit.
My first goal is to get back to tracking food daily and getting in "some" exercise everyday....even if it's only 10 minutes at a time a few times a day. I've want to get MOVING more.
I have an office holiday party coming up in 2 weeks. I don't anticipate that I will be 10lbs lighter but I KNOW I won't be taking the full 10lbs to this party!!! I took my first step today by weighing and measuring myself and tracking it on Spark. I will continue to take steps forward every day until I reach my ultimate goal. I'm going to do it! It's ok that I took a few steps backward. It happens. Most important to me is that I'm stopping this backward momentum NOW and propelling myself forward. This is MY gift to ME!
Keep Sparkin.....it works!!!
