2012 was not the best year for me as far as my weight, nutrition, exercise... all of the healthy stuff that helped me make a new me. I regained 20 pounds - had to buy new pants (sigh) and pants and shirts are very snug again.
I let my good habits go, slip, fall, drop... I became inconsistent (I just re-read my 8/2012 blog.. yup inconsistently interested...). Downright Lazy. Why? I don't know. Bored? Tired? Burned out? My husband says he thinks I go too hard and then overwhelm myself and then quit. Maybe. I know I am becoming again the person I didn't like. I don't like her, she is mean to herself, she is hard on herself, and not supportive. She doesn't say encouraging things to herself like she would say to you.
I want the be the other me... The one that felt good about myself and going about my day. I want to feel good about what I do each day, my clothes that I wear and my health. I want 2013 to be different and better but only I can do that. So, starting today, I am reengaging in Spark People, I joined a challenge, and I'm going to nag my husband to nag me. (He will love that!) I know I'm not alone, there are quite a few status updates that sound like mine... which means we have lots of support. I just need to stay connected.
So, for today my goals are:
track my food - even if it's over for the day
Drink water - 8 cups
NO candy - nope none.

See you all tomorrow!
