It's been a week since I quit Sparkpeople. I have been on antibiotics (which I don't like to take) for a week for bronchitis and sinus infection. I couldn't seem to get off the couch or breathe very well (I feel so bad for asthmatics...what a difficult life!!), which is hard since I homeschool my kids. My broken toe is healing and I am walking a little better, but shoes still hurt my toe.
So, I haven't forgotten about Sparkpeople, but I truly quit for the time being. I haven't been tracking food and I haven't been doing any exercise at all. I did clean the house today, and was quite tired. Allergy season here is ridiculous and causing problems for my family. I think the trees are fighting back.
This too shall pass, I know. So, I am planning to come back to Sparkpeople when I can run again...about 4 more weeks (I don't want to try it too early, even with walking). I am not going to track food, but I am going to try and make healthier choices (I wasn't doing the greatest job before, but I was getting there). I will track food choices after about a month when I get the running and working out thing down pat.
That's my plan. Hope it works. It's such a bummer, too. Because I am supposed to go to a concert with my sister in May, and I was well on my way to wearing a cool, smaller outfit. I refuse to buy a new wardrobe with the added weight from the past year.
Hope others are faring well! Happy Spring! I will probably check in again next week.
