Why Wait?

Sunday, December 21, 2014

I was going to start trying to lose weight again in the new year. Why wait?

I've been doing that to myself a lot lately. I'll start tomorrow. I'll wait until after I go away. Next week would be better. Why wait?

I'm not waiting anymore. I'm tired of being the big girl. I'm tired of feeling frumpy. I'm tired of being tired. Why wait?

The answer is: don't. There's nothing I can start tomorrow that I shouldn't start today.

Why Can't I Do This

Sunday, October 20, 2013

I'm tired of constant failure. I've gained so much weight lately after having been stalled for so long. I need to make changes. I just turned 40. That\ll make everything harder. It's time to get hard on myself. I can't keep going the way I am. I can't stand seeing myself in the mirror. I'm tired all the time. I hurt. I'm sure most of it is because of what I've done to my own body.

Today is the day. Today is the day that I start making changes that I know I need to make.

Well, I've started (again). I wasn't planning to blog this time because it doesn't seem to help but I need somewhere to whine a minute.

I have three hurdles that I must overcome today:

1. getting to work. Yesterday was a terrible day and I'd like to believe that today will be better but I'm having trouble. I have to correct some mistakes, I have to finish some work I didn't get to and it's the busiest day of the month. My 6 year old woke me at 5am and I want to crawl back into bed.

2. getting through work. It's the busiest day. It's the day that I'm most likely to turn to food for that emotional boost. I don't want to do that today.

3. exercising after work. I was going to do it yesterday and between staying an extra 15 minutes and my husband having forgotten to get groceries I just ran out of will to push myself.

Day 18

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

I have not been a good Sparker these last few weeks. I did track my breakfast yesterday, but nothing else. I have to actually think about what I'm doing. I need to lose the weight this time.

Day 15 (Week 2)

Sunday, July 22, 2012

I don't get it. I didn't exercise this week, I didn't track what I was eating and I didn't drink enough water and I lose 2.5 lbs. I'm not complaining. It's just hard to justify doing all those good habits when they don't seem to get me as far. The only explanation that I have is that since I wasn't tracking, I was eating less because I wasalways sure I was going over.

New week, anyway. Keep this train rolling.
