I have just about had it with myself. I have named myself the queen of procrastination. I was doing so well in the beginning, I lost 15 lbs, then started slipping and eating over my calorie goals, skipping the daily exercising. In the last month I have managed to gain back 5 lbs.
I am done!!! I am finally putting my foot down and grounding myself. I am resetting my goals, and I am going to get back to being a "LOSER". My body and my mind are going to no longer play these games of laziness and procrastinating. No more sitting around feeling depressed, how am I going to feel any better if I just sit around? I feel great when I eat right and exercise. I feel great when I eat right and exercise. I feel great when I eat right and exercise. This will be my daily motivational chant - or hourly if need be. You just need to remind yourself that you will not lose this weight overnight, you need to follow a healthy lifestyle and before you know it you will look great. Keep a positive attitude, give yourself a positive compliment daily, and don't forget to smile.

Today I start on Chantix to help me quit smoking. I have been smoking since I was 13 years old, 21 years ago. Trying to change my life, eating healthier, exercising (need to get motivated to do more though), and now I want to breathe again. Not only am I going to do this for my health, I am also doing this for my family. I was to grow old with my husband (even though he irritates me at times hehe), I want to see my son grow and see his children grow (way, way in the future - I am not ready for grandkids just yet). All in all, I want to be a healthier person ans with the support of my family and friends and the encouragement I get from all of you on Spark People I know I can snuff this habit. I just have to remind my self not to give up and say NO...Remember the commercial that says "you had to learn how to smoke, and you have to learn how to quit." And who knows maybe this will help me with my chocolate cravings also. Hopefully.


Getting back into the groove

Had a tough time at the beginning of the week. Woke up Monday morning extremely sick, every muscle in my body ached. Motivation has been slow to return, but today I was able to get a full hour of pilates and cardio in. Feeling much better and more energized. Oh joy, just in time to return to work on Saturday. Slipping on my calorie goal, but making better food choices. Except for the piece of chocolate cake (husband's birthday). I forgive myself & will start tomorrow with a positive attitude, loving myself, and proud I have made it this far.
