Well i've been away from sparkpeople for a while, we moved house and things got a bit crazy. I let things go a bit because it seemed much easier to get take aways than to cook when things were so mad, and strangely i didn't put on any weight and contintued to lose. I guess because i was still controling my portions and all the stuff you do when you move house is quite good exercise.
Unfortunatly when things calmed a bit i've found it really hard to get back on track. the motivation i once had has ebbed, I think the fact that i stopped logging was my big downfall - since i'm losing the relationship in my mind between eating & excersise and weight loss/gain - but tracking is SO hard, it takes such a long time and with so many other things i should be doing i can't help feeling guilty about how much time i'm 'wasting' on the computer.
Also a new house means a new lifestyle, my daughter's now at home full time which makes it nearly impossible to get out for a run - i know i should just to a sparkpeople routine andy my streangth training but I can't seem to motivate myself.
I've restarted back at level 2 since i didn't feel i was really following the program before - i'm hoping i can use it to motivate myself. I think i just need to put some time aside to read some of the motivational pages and refocus my priorities.
anyway, swimming lesson to take my son to, so i'm off again
