2,500-3,999 SparkPoints

Lather, Rinse and repeat.

Monday, November 21, 2011

Honestly, this is soooo pathetic. My last two or three blogs have been "oh, I fell off the wagon and now I'm back...I'm gonna do it this time." Then I join a challenge...I weigh in once or twice and then I have a bad week and that spirals into two bad weeks and then three..and so on and so forth. I promptly bail on Sparkpeople for the next several months until I get desperate again and I show up for my next "off the wagon" blog....Lather, rinse, repeat.

...I don't know why I can't do this. I guess the more accurate term would be WON'T do this. I know I COULD. I know what I need to do. I think a lot about what I should do. Unfortunately I do that thinking while I'm sitting in front of my computer or watching TV and eating something yummy. So I keep gaining more weight and then of course activity is more difficult so I do less and less and then I gain more weight....lather, rinse repeat. Are YOU seeing a patter here? I believe I do.

So. Obviously I need to make some changes. I'm going to commit to one change a week for now. I'll work more in later. My change this week is going to be logging all of my food (good or bad) on Sparkpeople and logging all of my activity, or lack thereof. I know it doesn't sound like much, but I truly believe that the more I'm on Sparkpeople, the more I think about what I eat and what activity I do and all this thinkin' has got to do something in the long run right?

    ::hugs:: it is a long and frustrating road. But it doesn't seem so overwhelming if you keep your sights short. Small goals can add up to much bigger goals. It also helps to be able to meet all those small goals one right after the other. It becomes a snowball effect after a while. Much love dearling and know I am here if you need to vent.
