Got Side Tracked


Sunday, October 28, 2012

I definately got side tracked this weekend. I have broken my diet a couple of times but I feel that just coming back on here and making and effort will help. I thought I could just go cold turkey on bad habits and loose ten pounds in a month. I'm starting to realize it is going to be a much longer period of time. I need to really work on making gradual changes in my life. There is no really quick fix to bad eatting habits unless I checked myself into some extreme therapy or something which I really don't think I need. Overall my eatting habits have changed and I have been eating much better. I have barely had any soda or alcohol. I have only had fast food once (other than salads and oatmeal) in this past month or so. I have been much more active. I have been dealing with trying to handle stress and anxiety. I still think I could work on eating more fruits and veggies but I am doing better. I used to go out and eat for every meal and now I'm cooking so much and really enjoying it! So, I may be slipping a little but over all I am making improvements. I just need to keep on this site and working with my motivation! emoticon

    Real success involves a process - one where you make small changes one at a time, ensure they are part of your life before adding more.

    Well, you've summed up the secret of SparkPeople. It's all about making those little lifestyle changes that will last the rest of our lives. Congratulations! And even though you got off track, you knew where to come to get back on the right road. As one of my SP friends once said: "If you're driving down the highway and have a flat tire, you don't stop and get out and run around the car poking holes in the other 3 tires. You pull over and fix the flat and get back on the road as quickly as possible." It's the same with healthy living. If we slip up, there's no point in throwing in the towel for the whole day--we just need to get back on track quickly and continue our journey toward that healthy lifestyle. Good job. You deserve it, so hang in there until it becomes second nature to you. Eating healthy can be very enjoyable. And it's not impossible to stop eating fast food and start fixing healthy meals at home.
