Frustration Is Building
Sunday, June 07, 2015
I have been on SparkPeople for about a month and a half and I was so excited the first week I lost about 4 pounds (obviously water weight and just from changing my eating habits) and now I have gained two of that back and feel like I am never getting ahead. I am getting so frustrated because I am just not making time for the exercise part.
I work part time, but then to supplement my income I also sell Knitted Name Banners as well as dog walking, so I have a lot of things going on all at once and the stress of it all is getting the best of me for sure.
I have been good about eating better, that part is not as challenging for me because I just don't buy the bad stuff when I grocery shop, and I use the trackers here on SparkPeople. I even have the SPAT which always says that I have burned at least 200 calories a day just from normal activity so my body is getting some kind of burn off but apparently it isn't enough.
The Summer Meltdown Biggest Loser challenge starts in only 4 days and my goal was to have lost 5 pounds total since joining SparkPeople (would have only been about 2 pounds when I made that goal), but now it seems so out of reach.
Now that my crazy vent is over, I am getting back into my routine and will make time for the exercise portion. Instead of just taking the dog out to pee, we will walk around the block a little more or something like that. I will make time in my crazy schedule to get at least 30 minutes of workout in each day.
