I was among the many who got derailed during the holiday season. Mine started near the beginning of December and after the first of the year I finally found my brakes. Decided to start fresh....not from the beginning as I did have some progress last year. Weighed in using that number as my new starting point. I knew I was going forward.....made new goals, tracked food intake and calories burned. I will admit it wasn't easy after the downward spiral I chose to take. The worst part was the sore muscles that I neglected for that period of time.
I put in many hours to get my body moving in the right direction with only minimum soreness.
SO..... Never give up on some kind of daily exercise.
I tracked my food, staying within the caloric range; planned for those Badger game snacks, looked up nutritional info before heading out to a restaurant, diligently drank water and made sure I had 5-7 fruits/veggies every day.
SO..... All this "work" truly pays off.........I lost 4.5#'s this week just by doing what I was doing pre-derailment. These pounds are just some of those I gained back, but what a "Aha moment"........My body wants to co-operate as long as my mind doesn't get in the way! I'm off to a good start and don't plan on looking back.
