Moving towards commitment

Sunday, April 15, 2012

so i've been struggling to recommit to the more restrained lifestyle that i need to get back to in order to lose the last 8 or so lbs from my 4th pregnancy. baby is 1, so all excuses are really gone. :)

i've been thinking a lot about how i've just not been motivated to try lately. i have gotten input from quite a few people, and it's been good to have my thoughts spurred on. i've come back to needing to focus on changing habits, which i see as i type this, is what i have written as my program. my two main focuses right now are eating no more than 2 sweets per day (except sunday) and to sit at a table every time i eat.

i'm thinking of sharing these goals with someone else, and possibly putting a payment plan into practice if i break any of the rules (ie-i pay the person i share my goals with if i don't follow through.) i still need to work out how often i revisit my goals, and how the whole payment thing would go, but i've got the general thing down.

also, i think i'll have an exercising 5 days a week for a minimum of 5 minutes, unless i'm feeling sick.

so i'm making progress, getting ready to recommit myself. i need to identify the last little pieces of my plan and get to it

    When I read the title of this blog, I thought, this sounds just like me! For the last couple of months, I just have not been motivated to make changes. But a couple of weeks ago, I realized that I have gained about ten pounds over the last year (and much of it over the last few months.)

    So I decided that right when Passover ended I would get back on track. So last night, we went out for Pizza! And today I started my food tracking. I did not exercise today because I tutored eight hours between 10 am and 10 pm. But tomorrow I am going to the pool.

    So, I hope that you will also get that last little bit of motivation to push you back on the track. I know how hard it is!!! Good luck!
