Well, hello everyone.....it's been a few months since my last blog. It's time; time to get back with the program. SparkPeople is a must for me as I have been slacking in my daily logging of food and keeping track of exercise and just staying involved in the SparkCommunity overall. As a result, I have gained back about 14 pounds. That's right, 14 pounds.
I could choose to beat myself up (okay, I have a bit) or I can just pick of the pieces and do this yet AGAIN. That's what I have chosen to do, and I WILL. I vow to. By Christmas my goal is to be back down where I was before at 134 pounds. I was one pound away from reaching my goal weight and I blew it, BIGTIME! Why did I do that? Why did that happen?
Well, life happens......I had a grandchild born in April (the beginning of my downward spiral), then we moved to a different state (transition began in May/June), went on a 7-day cruise vacation this summer, and I got off track; out of the habit of logging, being in the Spark Community, and just doing the things I need to do to maintain.
On my 4 mile run yesterday I gave myself a Pep talk. I know what I need to do and I'm doing it! My husband and I doing SparkPeople together this time. That will help to keep me motivated and on track too.
This program works! I just need to do it ; I can, and I will!
