I did really well last year losing 26#s in the last 4 months of the year. Then, "life" caught up with me. Had the flu, stopped running. An employee at my business crossed me-started working OT, stopped logging food and didn't resume running. Husband started voicing his concern over being neglected, stopped spending time on SP. My youngest didn't transition well from crib to toddler bed, I don't remember the last time I've slept a straight 8 hours (or 7, 6, 5, 4...).
I could go on...
Why is it that I KNOW SP works. I have a FitBit. Between the information I get from SP and the data/feedback I get from my FitBit, I believe that I know how to lose weight. For me, it is eating anything I want but I have to count calories and my daily calorie intake needs to be 500-1000 less than the total calories I've burned according to FitBit.
It works. It's simple. But, why do I not take that extra few minutes every day to log in all food I've eaten and compare it to calories burned.
So, I went to get groceries today. Instead of shoving everything into it's place as soon as I walked in the door, I took the time to put snacks into single serving snack baggies and chopped as many veggies as I could prepare ahead for the week. I also bought cup a soup and granola bars to put in the trunk of my car (Not necessarily the healthiest choices, but no excuses to run out for fast food at lunch if I 'forget' to pack!).
Please let little changes like this be the start I need to get me back on track. I've been 'off-track' for so long now (10 months), I really need to start making progress towards my goal weight. I like how I feel at a lighter weight. I'm full of energy, happier.
