Geez Krystl, wheres your spark?


Saturday, June 30, 2012

Okay, a few weeks ago I started slacking a bit on my sparkpeople tracker and haven't been the same since. Am I waiting for me to gain back 10 pounds before I get in gear? What are my excuses? hmm its usually because I eat complicated things that I cant track or i think its too hard lately. Sad excuse for now... Trust me I know:


Ha!
I've got to get out of this mix I am in, I havent even gotten to track my exercize.

I think I shall make july a better month, a fresh start, erase the screwy month of june, it wasnt exactly a great time to look back on for these reasons:

I got stuck at my 50lb loss for a few weeks and wasn't losing, may have lost motivation, my taste for the bagged salads I loved went haywire and making me sick of the smell, so I have to make sure i fill it up with other salad items to deter the taste...

Um, The pain: My back is just pure horrible, let me explain... I have 2+ herniated discs in my back, pinching on the main nerve. In the mornings I am paralyzed for hours. I scream just sitting up in the morning, or even walking... Im scared because I dont want to be immobilized, and I have never had surgery before like that. Not to mention I have 2 kids that I have to care for, age 6 and 3.

Besides the back issues, I have feet problems: plantar faciitis however you spell it. I cant even pronounce it still. But Its at the point at times where i hate wearing shoes because of the pain, or I just cant even walk or stand up on them. For a month a while back it calmed and I was hopeful, but its been creeping back. Plus a bone spur was found in an x-ray... geez.

But I havent let all that stop me from getting active, forcing through the pain, bike riding is a plus because I am not on my feet. and Im getting outside and active. I definately need to find good shoes though. But I love getting outside still.



I suppose I felt like I lost track on Sparkpeople after I couldnt get past my 50lb goal, and started not eating 90% pure healthy food like I was. I got busy with the kids and such to where they wouldnt let me have much time for myself. I had started taking care of the house more which led me to not much time for myself as well. Im talking like I have totally lost track, but I havent. Just slacking. I love sparkpeople and will make July a much needed reinforced Sparkmonth for me. So I shall start today.

Wish me luck, and I dont plan on going anywhere. I still drink water throughout the day and get some exercise, just have to keep tracking and stay on goal. Time to set a new small goal, I think thats what it is... Next small goal is to get to 55lbs lost before july 19th - (my 30th birthday).. I may have to redo my tracker if I gained a pound or 2 in the past weeks, but its fine. Im not upset at all.

Love my sparkfriends, thanks for reading.

    It has been hard for me to track everything too. Seems like since the weather really got hot here. I have a ton of excuses but yours seem more realistic. I'll make a deal... I'll get back on track if you do too. I think I can do five pounds by the 19th.

    You can do this! If you remember to track, it'll give you the motivation to "stay on track". Praying for you.

    I don't always do lettuce salads. Lately my favorite is just a tomato cut up, a cucumber cut up and some fresh mozzarella sprinkled with balsamic vinaigrette.
