I'm tired and don't want to move today. I've been doing well, and am getting my 10000 steps on most days. Basically I'm adding steps when running errands by going the long way to get to where ever I am going. I work in a hospital but my office is down the street, so I'll go to the front door with is a longer walk than the back door.
Unfortunately today I don't have many meetings or errands. So it would be really easy for me to sit at my desk and work on my computer all day.
I'm going to make myself get up and walk over to the main hospital now. But anyone who feels the desire, please leave a comment encouraging me to get off my tukus and move today. I think I need some extra pushes.

Aha! So tracking my foods, staying within my calorie goal and being more active works!
I'm feeling better lately, the weather has been nicer out and both my husband and I are working on losing weight and being more active. His weight is now lower than mine, but I know I'll catch up.
Its nice working together on this. Last night we went out to Chili's and for the first time he actually was interested in looking up the calories and how to make a better choice. We are also trying to take the dog for walks and the boy for bike rides more often.
Last Thursday was a crazy busy day for me. And I paid for it. My SI joint pain flared up and I could barely walk on Friday. As much as I hate to do it, I think I may have to go in for another SI joint injection. I was just hoping I could get through the first part of the year without meeting my health insurance deductible again.

Went to put on a dress Saturday, and it was too tight :(
I listed my excuses previously and pledged to myself I'm going to resume my healthy habits and I didn't. So what is different now? I now have definite, tangible proof that I've backslid without stepping on the scale. Clothes are tight, energy level is low and I feel yucky.
I'm not going to get on the scale today, for me, that would be self sabotage because I would say what is the point? Look how back I've been.
So here is what I will do:
1. Track foods
2. Start with 10 minutes/day activity
3. 10,000 steps
Plan to weigh on January 1st to start off new year right.
I've lost before, I know I can do it again. I just need to focus on the positives:
1. More energy
2. Clothes fit better
3. I feel better

Having a hard time getting back on track. I'm using every excuse in the book, and the terrible thing is I know they are excuses. I'm not regaining, I'm holding steady, but I'm still obese and still have many reasons for wanting to be healthier.
So this is my way of facing it, by posting it. I'm not ignoring it, not hiding it. I'm going to start with 10 minutes a day activity again and work my way back up. I have no excuses why I can't take a 10 minute walk each day.
My gym locker room/showers were being renovated, so that was my excuse for not going there on lunch. Well, that is done. So my goal is to get there at least 1 time this week, 2 times next week and back to 3 times the following week.
I hate tracking my food, but I know I have better results doing so. So am committing to starting that as well starting today. Again, there is no excuse, I have the app on my phone and most of the time I eat similar foods each day.
I'm afraid of the pain coming back, that is my biggest excuse. But I won't know if I don't try. So I need to just get to it and see what happens. Not exercising will just mean I eventually put the weight back on and that won't help any of my joints.
