I woke up this morning thinking of my coffee. A habit that I had broken before I went on Vacation. Not that I drank coffee on vacation but that I needed it those first few days back to get everything done. This morning I ate a cupcake (cream cheese frosting) since it was the last of 4 sitting on the counter (I ate 2 yesterday).
It is 7:15am and I am recommitting myself to my healthy lifestyle. I have been using vacation as my excuse and the scale is showing my disappointing eating choices and lack of strength training. I heard my family tell me that I am "looking smaller" and I took that as "I can stop now with my diet" but it is false. No matter what people think of me it is still what I think of myself. I don't care that the people in my life who are overweight and would "kill to look like me" think. They are not me and if they were they would start to make a change.
Since starting spark people a little over a month ago I really put my best foot forward. After evaluating this last week I realize that I am letting myself slip on unhealthy things. I need to really look at my goals and figure out what I want out of life. Today I am going to really focus on what accepts that I want to change. I will start tracking my food everyday again because that is such an important tool to help me not overeat.
I am going to be "recommitting" for one week. Really focusing on my health and getting my diet and exercise back into more than once a day. This week should jump start my healthy habits and slingshot me back on track. This is my life and no one can tell me how to live it, but I am done living it out of breath and tired at 4pm.
One day at a time, stay posted for how this all works out. Its never too late to recommit and push past those old barriers.
