Only one resolution this year.

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

Get on Sparkpeople at least once everyday! I need to track my food like I did in the beginning. I don't know what I weigh, I'm afraid to get on the scales. I haven't gained back all of my lost weight, but more than I would like. My size 10 jeans are tight now and I have to get this business turned around or I'll be having to buy a size larger and I really, really don't want to do that.

I've really fallen down on my exercise. There is simply no time for formal exercise. I put as much activity in my day as possible but I know it really isn't enough. Working full time and going to class 2 nights a week and studying the rest of the time puts a damper on lots of things.

I managed to get a cold on the last day of school before the holiday, ugh. All I have felt like doing is sleeping and reading. Well, here I am on that well worn road of good intentions once again. I really want my groove back.

    Welcome back to Spark! I can so relate to the time factor with exercise. I've righted the ship in terms of food (on Day Seven!) but it's a challenge to get exercise when it's so cold outside.
You know what to do on this 'well-worn' path - so get to it gal!!! We will succeed!
Happy New Year!

    So glad you are back. I hope you can find some time before class to take a walk around the facility inside if it is after dark. There has to be somewhere you can find a bit of space JUST FOR YOU in you schedule . Plan it in --- 2 X 10 minute periods.

I use Resistance bands and I am doing some of Nicoles seated videos about 10 some even less
minutes.

PRIORITISE YOU!.
If you want it hard enough - you have to find the little piece of time for Just YOU !!!
Happy you are back Pat in Maine. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You and me and CMRAND54 are all in the same boat! I'm trying to cut back on the frivolity stuff on SP and concentrate on the things that help me lose -- like logging my food, meeting exercise goals, etc. At the moment I'm broke, so living out of the pantry, and I bet my daily calories look like the national debt! But my resolution is to start tracking again when I can get healthier food.

I've been where you are: full time job, going to college full time at night, raising two teenagers. Not easy! And my hat's off to you! I don't think anyone can do two really hard things at once -- such as quitting smoking & trying to diet at the same time. So concentrate on your studies, get as much exercise as you can, eat right to maintain where you are, and keep yourself from going crazy!

Happy New Year -- may it bring you the best of everything!

Schedule exercise into your calendar-
it's as important as anything else.

    I'm (hopefully) back too. Need to track and get serious.

Even though you don't have time for formal exercise you can get in some extra by walking farther. More trips up and down stairs if you have a 2-level home and park farther away than you need to. The steps DO add up.

Happy New Year and best wishes,

    This is probably the ONLY New Years Resolution any of us need! If we're on Spark People, it motivates us to do everything we need to do! xoxo

    You and me both. I weighed this morning and discovered I had gained 14 pounds in the past year. I've been using my food tracker, but I've been lying to it and not tracking all the snacks. That has to stop. I am keeping up the exercise, because I am retired now, so I have lots of time. Your schedule is awesome and I'm sure it keeps you busy. You need an exercise like cycle spin classes that burn a lot of calories in a short period of time. Take care of yourself. I know we can do this, and stay in our size 10 jeans.
