So 2012 proved to not be all that I had hoped it would be. I had such big plans to put into action the success I had getting in shape in 2010. But, motherhood, life and a lack of focus tripped me up more times than I would like to admit. Now that 2013 is here, how can I not fall in that pit again?
-Hmm, well for one I need to be on Sparkpeople daily. So, yesterday I downloaded the app for it so I don't have an excuse for not logging my food.
-2nd- I am going to take baby steps to change these bad habits
Now it's on to the how? Well from my previous blog entry, I had laid out all of my weaknesses and bad habits. I will revisit that blog to help remind me, better yet I need to memorize it and live it out daily. I also need to be accountable to myself and not blame situations as much as I need to be more mindful of what I am putting in my mouth. Because I love to eat, no point in denying that...it's obvious.
My other bad habit...I am a couch potato and I spend a lot of time sitting either on the couch or at the computer. Since I am a stay at home mom, it should be no problem to get off my duff more often. So, my plan is to keep the house spiffy. Which will be two-fold beneficial since I will be burning more calories throughout the day and have a cleaner house. Sweet! In addition to the daily moving about, I am striving to exercise 3-4 days a week. Which is something I enjoy because I can go to the gym and they watch my girls and I get to be along. Ahhhh! My other exercising option is to play my new exercise game on the Xbox Kinect. Which looks to be a fun and challenging game. No excuses right? Right!!
Here we go again...glad that I have my previous success to fuel my courage and give me hope that I can conquer this once again. Good Luck to all in your goals for 2013!!
