I had yet to realize how long it had been since I last posted a blog ... Making things habit/routine is something I've struggled with in the last year and just looking how inconsistent I am on SP makes me realize that. Before I jumped off the workout/healthy bandwagon, I used to work out 6 days a week and ate relatively healthy. Given I wasn't stick thin, I've always been curvy, but I was healthy. My muscles were lean, I ran 2 miles a day straight without stopping. Now, I bet I couldn't make it a quarter mile without dying. At any rate, the way of life I used to live by working out everyday but Sunday and eating decent is what I am striving to make routine once again.
Sometimes i find it hard not having consistent support or a husband who could care less about working out or staying healthy does make it hard on occasion and this is what I struggle with regularly. On top of it, I manage a restaurante which doesn't help with the eating. I've realized it's a matter of discipline as far as food at work goes and making sure I bring food from home with me and making sure I get out to walk and such despite what my husband is doing.
Again back to the routine thing, I know once it becomes habit, it will be way easier to keep rolling with it. And to use people such as my sister in law, who actually introduced me to spark, as my motivation. She has lost near 130lbs in the last 2 years and doesn't even look the same person. Working out and eating right has become a huge part of her life. This is something I am in the process of striving for and hopefully, mentally, I can do a 180 and do what i need to do to get myself healthy :)
