Well spark friends, I have had an amazing week as far as motivation, exercise, determination and nutrition go. Here we are and it is Saturday. This is typically where it has been falling apart for me. For some reason since the beginning of the year, I just can't seem to hold it together on the weekends (even though I did this successfully for over a year before). I don't know what flipped in my brain when the calendar flipped to 2012, but it can't continue.
I am making a vow that this will be the weekend that I change this bad habit. The weekends are not two magical da! ys that you eat everything in sight! The weekends are not days that require you to eat everything in sight in order to have a good time or enjoy yourselves, so I am not quite sure why my brain is programmed to feel that way. I am changing that habit today. I am going to spend time with my family that isn't centered around food. The food doesn't control me, I simply need healthy amounts to survive, and that is it! This will be the weekend that I turn it all around!
While it is a positive that I am able to maintain my weight, I know that I can do better and want better, which requires positive changes!
So far I have gotten in 60 minutes of cardio (before Dexter woke up)! I am now watching Disney movies with my son (he still isn't feeling all that great). We have been dancing together to the songs, which he seems to really enjoy. We are thinking of taking him to the park later to see if we wants to slide a couple times (he LOVES the park - and he's not contagious). I am also going to do my Spark strength training later when Dexter is napping.
I can do this! Hold me accountable Sparkies!
