Isn't it funny?

Thursday, January 03, 2013

Isn't it funny how when eating "junk" food and things that do absolutely nothing for my body I am always over my calorie intake. And yet, when I am eating right and giving my body what it needs I find it hard to reach the minimum....really makes me think about how much I really "need" to sustain myself!

New Years - another Resolution ;)

Wednesday, January 02, 2013

The motivational and accountability aspect of SP is what makes this such a superior site in my opinion. Plus the support and friendships here are bar none from what I've seen thus far :)
I have tried all the gimmicks, pills etc and I think it comes down to changing the way you live rather than looking for a quick fix. I have changed my outlook and I think that is the biggest difference I've noticed...I no longer want a "quick fix" that I can't continue throughout my life. I want to learn to eat, live and be healthy and happy and I think to achieve that, the change has to come from me.
Today was not a great day...a lot of unforeseen circumstances happened and I wasn't able to get to the gym, eat at normal times or consistently and then we had a New Years Party this evening. Now normally my response would be to say "well there goes the day" and spend the rest of the night eating and feeling sorry for myself. Not tonight! Tonight I came home and signed into SP....although I felt too bloated to work out I started reading, posting and planning for tomorrow. That is the difference SP has already made in my life and I can't wait to see what 2013 and SP have to bring...going to be a good year, I can feel it!

Lovin' SP :)

Monday, December 31, 2012

I cannot believe how much I am loving Spark People now that I've finally decided to use the site to its full potential. It is the first thing I check in the am and I spend more time on here than I do on FB now! It is so exciting to see my spark points go up, read other posts, read replies to my posts, track my nutrition and fitness. I cannot get over how motivated I am to get healthy! Thank you Spark People, I'm only down a pound and I feel like you have changed my life already :)

Don't let me fall :(

Sunday, December 30, 2012

I haven't really been using the SP site to its full potential until this week and I am amazed at how much it is helping me! Tonight I had a big party at a friends house with all the usual "junky" food....I had eaten ahead of time so I wouldn't be hungry and had allotted some calories for this evening. However, I still went over my calorie range and was upset about it...instead of letting it get me down I immediately got on the site and started looking for a workout to burn those extra calories off....I NEVER would have done that before, I would have written the night off and binged on everything in the house. I came home to chocolates and even threw those in the garbage! I am still struggling a bit with the weight I gained over the holidays and I'm disappointed that I haven't seen a loss because of that gain, but I am not letting that be an excuse. It is a reason to work harder than ever and not give up! I am not going to "fall off the wagon" this time!

Not Giving Up!

Saturday, December 29, 2012

So tonight I realized after looking through old albums that it is now or never...I am young with my whole life ahead of me but am throwing it away on this food addiction!
I started watching some videos on Spark People, checking out message boards and started to get super motivated....I did 30 min of cardio in my living room (this NEVER happens)!!! I assumed after my friend cancelled on our gym date that I would just skip the work out today. But I did it and I feel great! This time I am making myself accountable...I'm telling the world, and I'm not giving up!

    Kudos on just going ahead and taking the change in plans in stride and exercising anyway!
