I lost my way and trying to get back! Day 42


Saturday, February 06, 2010

YOU CAN'T LOSE WEIGHT AND KEEP IT OFF WITHOUT CHANGING YOURSELF!

I have this analytical personality and I'm always trying to figure out what happened and why and when. When I started blogging 42 days ago, I was so excited to have found Spark and so excited to read the book and set goals. The enthusiasm must have spilled over because I had lots of readers and comments on my blog. Then about 20 days ago, my blogs turned negative and people stopped reading. I went back to see when and how that happened. Basically I had dropped out of society by trying to lower the dose on one of my medications. i missed 4 social engagements, stopped talking to my best friend Pat, slept a lot, and accomplished nothing. Things were working well for me. How could I have been so dumb to try and make changes in meds like that? At least I was smart enough to figure it out and got back on the blue pill immediately. And I'm better in my head.
Now I have to climb back up to the level of excitement I had when I started and also catch up on my personal and business life. Always playing catchup.

The most inspiring post I had written was January 12, 2010, I printed it off to keep. That is when I realized that other diet programs didn't work because they only focused on diet. And Spark focuses on every aspect of your life. I was so excited about that discovery, I was a featured blog post that day. Now I want it back. Time for some new goals.

1. Become a postive blogger again.
2. Go for 10 days straight with nutrition tracking and keeping my calories in control while eating more fruits and veggies, at least 5 per day. (start date 8 Feb 2010.)
3. Cook five out of 7 dinners at home per week.
4. Keep desserts and sweets for special occasions.
5. Walk at least once for 3 miles with Pat. (week)
6. Do at least 3 10 min spark exercises per week.
7. Walk the dog daily.
8. Clean off my desk and file papers.
9. Gather up tax information for the accountant.
10. Attend meetings I am supposed to attend and chamber activities.

There. That is a good bunch of goals for me to do in February. Some I just have to keep doing. And some will make me feel better about myself, like cleaning off my desk. Thanks spark buddies. I need encouragement.

    You have awesome goals for February, and sometimes when we slip, getting back into the positive frame of mind can be hard, but we can do it, I know we can! You're on the right track!

    Hi there!

Good to see you're picking yourself back up and coming back with renewed energy! I've had some rough days myself, and know what you mean about negative energy... its hard to pull ourselves back up, but with the help of others and support we get here, we can do it!

You've got some great plans in place - I really like the ones about walking your dog and getting organized. I find that time outdoors, in the fresh air, and being organized does wonders for my peace of mind and my inner "calm."

Keep up the great work, and the great attitude - I think it makes all the difference!
