Epiphany (well sort of)

Guess what? Just because I don't log into Spark People on the weekend doesn't mean I can eat all I want. Those calories still count, even if I don't log them.
Guess what? Logging into Spark People and getting at least 50 Spark points each weekday is NOT how you lose weight! You have to actually eat properly and exercise. Trivia, and Polls and Recipes and Message boards will get you points and trophies, but unless you actually adopt the lifestyle-NOTHING is going to happen.
No, I didn't just realize this. Of course I know this. It just hit me this morning on the way to work that I'm not going to get too far in my journey at the rate I'm going. One step forward and two steps back is not the goal.
That said, this weekend is going to be the start (again) of a new way of doing things. Eating healthy and exercising is just as important on the weekend as any other day. Tomorrow I will log my food and eat in a reasonably healthy manner, I promise myself!
