Let's Go Back to the Beginning

Happy New Year! I haven't blogged in months despite staying pretty active on SP. I am still participating in challenges, reading friends blogs, etc. I've been trying to log food on Fitbit, since I've been tracking activity on there. I haven't been doing enough, clearly, because I weighed in this morning at 4 lbs higher than my heaviest weight ever. Woah. I've officially gained back all of the weight I had previously lost (35 lbs) +4. Not cool.
I can make excuses and we all have them, but it doesn't matter.
The immediate goal is 5%, since the winter challenge starts tomorrow. I've never lost my 5% (i came kinda close, once) but I am determined this time to at least show some progress. I've never been a fast loser, even when I was able to lose and putting in all that work. But even if it takes me longer than anyone else, I am going to get back under 200. I feel not myself at this weight, even though I've been out of Onederland for a long time now, I put on a significant amount of weight in the last year (I think avoiding the scale/only checking in periodically helped me deny it longer than I should have).
Today I will:
-stay in calorie range
-not drink my calories (I recently was drinking a lot of juice which I never used to do)
-play Just Dance for 30 minutes or more
This weekend I will:
-go for a jog, even if it's just around the block
-do a session of ST
-stretch and do yoga
-avoid fast food & takeout
Minnie is doing great. I love her so much. Despite giving her a lot of walks, I think she has made me lazier. Nothing is more satisfying than cuddling on the couch with her under a blanket. She loves to sleep, and so do I. I just have to use those cuddles/naps as rewards for AFTER a workout. Change my way of thinking.
