Had an moment to reflect on the progress I've made since January 10, 2010 when I first joined. I started at 167 pounds and now I am at 150. So I had a couple - or a few more- plateaus during my tenure with SparkPeople.
I made more progress joining this site than by trying to succeed on my own.
Boy was I stuck for years doing it on my own!
Yesterday, I ate, didn't track, and decided at 8pm," I AM NOT GOING BACK. MY CAR (body) DOES NOT GO FORWARD IN REVERSE!"
So what did I do? I got my workout gear on, and did 25 minutes of cardio (jogging in place while watching TV) and 25 minutes of strength training (full-body workout: dumbbell, stability ball, etc.)
Wouldn't you know it? This got me out of my "funk" and motivated to stay on track.
