I am writing this, somewhat depressed, frustrated at my self and my inability to stay on track. I feel like I am falling down a big black whole that I can't get out of. Even my sweat pants feel tight. Uugg.
So, I am back again. No matter what, I will not give up on myself.

Motivational Quote of the Day: "One mouthful at a time." This one came from me!
I am happy to report that I am slowly but surely getting back on track. I have been first focusing my my food--taking advantage of the Farmer's Market, increasing my protein in my snacks by eating hard boiled eggs and a handful of nuts along with ordering from a great snack company called 'Nature's Box'. Find them on Facebook--the snacks are great and healthy too!
Tonight, I connected with my sister and we met up at Planet Fitness.. Only 30 minutes on the treadmill, but it was on an incline and it was a great start.
I have been slowly milling around Spark People, but too embarrased to make myself known due to all my recent difficulties.
I keep telling myself, 'one day at a time, one mouthful at a time.'
Happy Sparking everyone!

I don't know if it is good or bad to have been stuck this long, but still trying to come back for inspiration. I feel like I can stay in control of so many other aspects of my life except when it comes to food and exercise. My motivation seems to come in waves and I have been on the low side for a while now. My weight is staying relatively the same-only up by a few pounds, so it could be worse.
As Barry Manilow says, 'I've been up, down, trying to get the feeling again.'

Motivational Quote of the Day: "Never ever, ever, ever, ever give up." I know someone already came up with the 'never give up' part, but I added the ever, ever, ever!
That's about all I can say about that. My weight has stayed the same, which should be a good thing, but I am just trying to figure out how to come out of my little funk. My four year old is driving me crazy and we are going through a rough growing pain with her stating her mind, asserting her independence, etc, and with my increased work load along with my husband's on-going traveling my options for a healthy outlet seem limited. These are poor excuses, but I guess I am just stating what is on my mind at the moment.
The hardest thing for me to accept right now is realizing I cannot do it all and do it well between work, motherhood, being a wife, friend, family member, etc and I am putting my own health and well-being on the back burner as a result of it just to please others. I've got to turn this around.
I hope my fellow spark friends don't think I have walked away--I am still here and I need to start a new spark streak for logging again daily. For a while it just got to be too much, however, when I don't log on, I feel like I am falling into a dark whole that feels impossible to climb out of. I know I am stronger than that!

Motivational Quote of the Day: "I love real food!" From the Motivational Spark Pages.
Although the quote I chose today is really true, because I am really enjoying all the new fresh foods I continue to add to my daily intake, I'm frustrated at times that I am not yet seeing the continued results I want to see. I'm just feeling stuck.
I know one huge contributing factor is the fact that my exercise routine has declined, due to my new job, child care issues with my husband's travel schedule along with my current lack of motivation. I know these are only poor excuses, but it is just how I am feeling right now. Which is wierd, because the weather is getting better every day and i love Spring, but for some reason I'm not motivated to go on my two to three mile brisk walk with my daughter. I am walking outside, but it is with a four year old riding her bike, so it doesn't get my heart rate up when she is constantly stopping to smell the flowers. I know if I stick with this, I will find my "mojo" again in the exercise department, I just wish it would happen faster.
Hope everyone is having a good week!
