I reset all my goals. I was thinking of just erasing my profile altogether and making a new one, but my greedy side didn't want to give up the trophies and points I worked so hard to earn the last time I started. I feel like a big fat failure, literally. I noticed in a previous blog I had written I was wining about gaining ten pounds, if only it were just that. Ten pounds... nope I managed to gain back 30 this time. Ten pounds over my last starting point.
Yesterday my daughter said "Mom did you quit Sparkpeople? You used to be obsessed, what happened?" Good question. I was stressed, I didn't have time, pick an excuse I'm not really sure what it is. Mainly I wasn't doing what I should have been doing, eating healthy and exercising.
Two years ago I was laying on the floor strength training, feeling irritated with it all and it occurred to me that you cant just exercise to get the body you want, you have to keep at it for the rest of your life. I didn't and I could kick myself for it. I'm ready to get back down on the floor,. I'm willing to get back in the kitchen. My husband and I were talking today about whenever we brought food to a potluck we were always asked what was in it with suspicion. Nobody really wanted to touch the stuff that might be good for you. I haven't gotten that response in a while, I think its time to shake up the potlucks again. Bring on the quinoa and the flax seed.!
Here goes nothing, sack lunches for this college girl and a crockpot in overdrive. Time to put the treadmill in my living room to good use. This is not a resolution, this is a commitment, whose with me?
