It's a new year with new resolutions towards good health, and a healthy mind in a healthy body. So I am going to try to get back on SparkPeople after my prolonged time-out.
I dare not make any promises yet (I hate it when I break a promise) but I definitely intend to get back on track both with exercise (flexibility, strength and cardio) and diet (portion control). My main issues will be with consistency (yeah, I know), weighing my food, and actually getting online and report on how I am doing.
So far I have not done too bad with my diet since September, when I had to quit SparkPeople because my mental health was totally going haywire.
It is still a challenge, but I am getting better and I keep working on it.
This morning 1/1/2017 I weighed in at 211.8 lbs, so I pretty much maintained my weight (actually lost 1.2 lbs in the past 3 months). and that makes me feel good.
I like myself, I like what I see when I look in the mirror, my mood is ok, my energy levels are still a challenge, and my brain (battling the effects of brain chemical imbalance) is a work in progress, but I am training my brain with daily exercises.
So here I am, wondering whether or not to join any challenge yet.
I would like to but I am afraid to disappoint. Like I said, I am a work in progress still. My intentions are there where they belong, but following through will be something else.
If you let me know I will keep posting what goes right and what does not.
Just right now I am still putting one foot in front of the other, small steps, like.
PS - I have not checked any of my emails since September, so I got that to sort through too.
So be patient with me, please.
