It's not all unicorns and rainbows

Tuesday, July 31, 2012

What can I say, I am a terrible blogger. I want to sit down and put all my thoughts in one place, but each time I try, I can think of at least 10 other things I could be doing instead and I trail off.

July was not as successful a month as it could have been. It's no one's fault except my own. I haven't GAINED any weight, so that is always a positive - but I didn't gym as much as I could have, and I definitely didn't eat as good as I could have. I pretty much lost the weight all at once, and then maintained for the rest of the time. I have GOT to do better. I WILL do better.

I just need to stay focused. I know I want to lose weight and become healthy, I just need to keep that in my mind at all times. I am a strong person, I know I can do this. And I will. I'm just going at a much slower pace than I would like to.

My goal this month is to lose a whopping 10lbs, 2 lbs each week. I also want to continue to be active in 20 somethings, which I super love. It's probably one of the few reasons I don't completely go off track. Thanks SparkPeople for helping me reign myself in lol.

I also want to take more pictures. Weird right? I'm enormous, in my eyes anyway, and I am no where near close to the end.. it's just that I realize I rarely look at myself except in the morning when I get dressed, then at night when I wash my face/brush my teeth. I think that constantly seeing pictures of myself being so heavy will motivate me a little more. That, and I'll have plenty of pictures to show my journey once I reach my goal :)

I'm definitely going to try harder to blog once a week and just put down how I've been doing on a weekly basis. I think it will help.

I hope all the rest of my Sparkfriends are doing well :) It's a new month ladies and gents, we can do this.

    Hey! I think you should post a new blog to let us know how you're doing.

How's your month starting? emoticon

    You can do it!! I really think blogging helps. They don't have to be long posts, a quick check-in is enough to keep the streak going. Alternatively, you could jot a few notes as a draft email as the week goes along, then simply cut and paste into Spark People once a week.

    I have been doing so so this month as well but I figure as long we are still trying then progress has to follow. It will never happen if we give up and give in and you haven't done that so you deserve a pat on the back for that alone. Its hard to continue to workout when you don't see immediate results from your efforts, I almost quit because of this but I just stay at it and let others tell me that they see what I don't. It will come and I think that the picture idea is a great one. A picture is what motivates most of us to want to lose weight because we hate that image in the least I did. Blog when you feel like it,I try to blog when I feel really happy or in between cause sometimes this is what helps me to keep going when I read comments from other members but that said there is no rule book for when a member should blog and how often so never get stressed about that. You will be ok after all, you're in it to win it! emoticon emoticon

    You are FAB!!! Take as many pictures as you can and enjoy all of the memories that your making!! I so agree that being apart of spark teams keeps me motivated as well as the daily emails that i get!! Everyday is a new day to start fresh; if you eat out something delicious(but bad) be better tomorrow!! emoticon emoticon
