I did my 1000 minutes! So excited to have at least gotten that done this month. A couple other goals fell short, but this one I achieved. Go Me!

So I have decided I'm no longer stating that I got a handle on things in a triumphant manner.

I am simply going to decide each day what kind of progress I want to make. I will celebrate my progress as I go along, when I make it, but I don't think I will ever really have it all figured out. it seems when I claim I do, my subconscious sets out to prove me wrong, and does so every time. So, I have done half hour of exercise so far today, and have calculated that is about what I need to do for the rest of the month to hit my goal. That amount of minutes seemed so big at the beginning of the month, but I feel great that I have made achieving it a priority.

BAH !!!

Every time I think I'm getting the hang of this I get in my own freaking way and impede my progress! I am frustrated with my self. I know better by now than to beat myself up over it, and today I am determined to keep my eating under control. I just wish I could quit needing to forgive myself, and get back on track again. Why can't I just do this right and not have it take twice as long as it needs to??

Happy !!!!!

I've finally hit a routine with this I think, eating is under control. I set a goal not to overeat for a week starting Saturday, since I havent gotten a streak like that yet. So I'm going for that.

Exercise has gotten fun! I look forward to doing it, I feel great about how my body is working. Love love love, having a good week!

Thanks for the comments, I appreciate the encouragement/feedback! Setting the fitness minutes goal has really helped me get motivated. I keep doing the math to figure out how many minutes I need to do each day to get there, or how many minutes it will be if I take a day off.

So far I keep on adding more minutes to my workouts instead of taking the day off!

its a daily struggle trying to get motivated to exercise or even eat the foods that will help you acjheive your goal. right now I am at a point where I want to give up and accept the way I look. don't get me wrong, I look good for my age at 56 its just the lbs that I don't like and I'm workig on it. I can see a difference since I joined SparkPeople and I do feel better. emoticon

Went grocery shopping, and bought TONS of veggies! Some new ones I haven't tried cooking before too, somewhat excited about that. Got my exercise in today, happy!

I feel like I just need to keep giving myself credit for those small steps. Each good decision keeps getting me closer to my goal. One step at a time.......

Back on it, feeling good. Not sure how or why I got deflated so fast, but sheesh! Takes a while to build back up. I'll get this!

Love that you are doing SO well. I count my fitness minutes for doing yard work and heavy cleaning, as well as my ZUMBA or Line Dancing that I like to do. There is a LONG activity list in the tracker.

Stalled on the motivation just a little, tough to get that positive attitude back. Doesn't make much difference to anyone but me. Which is partly why I'm struggling to get back on track. Today was better than yesterday, so that's something. Tomorrow will be better :)

Took my walk today and listened to music as I went for the first time. What a difference! I am happy to report that I am holding onto the good attitude, as far as this project goes. I really want to see this through. Done with another day moving toward goals!!

IT is still happening. Knowing I am making this change is making me want to take even better care of myself, and my life. I am keeping this positivity!

I look forward to hitting "ONE-derland" soon, thankfully it's really not been long since I left. I am really trying to keep my upbeat attitude, and keep this going! Every day this week, I am happy about my choices. Feeling good! emoticon

When I look in the mirror, I know it is the same face I had two weeks ago. But I see me differently now. I feel pride that I am taking action to improve myself, and something in my eyes has changed. The same thing happened when I first quit smoking. Look in the mirror, and see someone who's doing loving things for her health. It's amazing.
