Opened up my Spark Points this morning and there was 25 points, just waiting for me, for no other reason than I'd once again made it to 30 day...this time for the 10th time, making it day 300.
No progress...not only no progress, a little bit of weight gain. Once again I have been assaulted by life and it's insanity. And what gets lost? My exercise routine. I still struggle with this, I cannot figure out how to keep going because even when I try to I am so exhausted that I can't get up enough energy to get myself moving as much as I should. So here I sit.
The good news? I do keep getting back at it. I do keep trying. This is a change for me, the simple fact that I haven't completely thrown in the towel. I do keep going back to it. And now that the warm weather has returned to my part of the world I am working outside a lot more, digging and raking and planting, all good solid physical labour. Plus I pay a lot more attention to what I eat. Even when I indulge I do so on a much smaller scale than I used to. A treat now is a fruit bowl with yogurt dip, not a bowl of ice cream.
Spark people keep me connected and I thank all of you for that. Knowing that others are out there fighting the same fight is huge for me. The conversations about daily struggles, adorable doxies and so much more makes me realize that we're in this together!
So, day 300. Coming soon, my first anniversary....andhopefully the weight a little bit down by then!!!
