Alright... so, I've updated my profile a bit, and have made a few starts & stops in getting back into this. I'm at least proud of myself that I'm cutting down my soda intake, but as for the rest, it's a difficult situation. Our grocery budget is very tight right now, and at times we need to rely on food we get from charities, which may or may not be healthy, and which I may or may not have proper calorie information on. As a result of this, I'm not tracking food until the situation is resolved, but I am trying to keep from eating entirely too much (which is difficult for me to do when I'm feeling a lot of stress).

I mentioned on the front of my page that my dad was going to be my exercise buddy, but unfortunately he kept forgetting to take me along for his 2 mile walks, so that fell through. Nonetheless, I shouldn't let that stop me. Unfortunately, I did let it stop me.

I recently got my first smartphone (seriously the bottom-of-the-line as smartphones go), because I need it for a job which requires checking my email several times a day. The great thing about it is that I've got the mobile version of spakpeople on it, and I'm hoping it will help me get back into the swing of tracking my water, exercise & eventually food.

Sadly, I feel lacking in motivation, lacking in support, & massively stressed out. To anyone reading this, I'd really appreciate any words of encouragement you can offer to help me get up & start doing more.

    Every little thing you are able to do DOES add up - beware of the "all or nothing" mindset! Seriously, even baby steps are steps in the right direction! Just pick something simple you know you can do and start a streak - once you've got that going pretty well, add in something more. Check out the "spark diet" here on SP - there are a lot of good tips regarding making goals and keeping things realistic.
