Last month I was really looking forward to my weight loss journey and not even a week into it I fell off track.
I completely abandoned this website, my goals, friends, everything except for my bad eating habits and lack of exercise.
One day I was talking to a close friend of mine who is always talking about going to the gym and being in shape. I confided in him about how I wanted to get in shape, I told him I want to drop the weight to feel better about my appearance and to get healthier. He gave me some tips and emailed me a home fitness test. It was a simple test, see how many push-ups, crunches, and squats in a minute and how many steps I could do (using a step/stair) in three minutes. He told me to keep track and test myself every month. After finishing our conversation I completely ignored the email.
Then for three days straight he called, texted, and emailed me about my results. Seeing that he cared so much to help me out I decided to open the email and take the test.
It was so simple yet so hard, but I did it and I felt good. So I forwarded to another friend of mine and she signed up for SparkPeople as well.
So here I am,
I wrote down my goals and posted them where I could see them. My goals for this week is to track my calories, drink 8 glasses of water, and to work out for at least 10 minutes everyday. I also told my 6 year old son to make sure I stay on track, he's good at pushing me to the limits. I have told enough people about my plans to get healthier and lose some weight so I know I wont have any problems falling off track again. I just have to remember to take it one day at a time and use all the tools that are available on SparkPeople.
I finally took my before pictures!!!
