I didn't make it....

Saturday, January 05, 2013

I didn't make it happen! My goal over the Holidays was to simply stay in Onederland... I promised myself to never set eyes on that dreaded 200 again. Well, here it is January 5, 2013 and I'm up to 200 lbs. once again. How sad! My motivation is also lacking. I need to try something different but what?? emoticon

    Rose come back to your old spark team it is now called A New Me ! I will be glad to read your post and encourage you once more.
The year has just began. Give yourself about a week to get rid of the excess foods you ate.
You will become a new Rose for 2013.

    I know my issue is that i have to be motivated and stay focused on my goals. i think that 1 can of mountain dew (and 2-3 cookies and some mini candy bars) are not that many calories. so i do need to plan my meals AND snacks so i do not mindlessly eat.

    this is a new year get out and enjoy the sun if you can work out to music good happy music will help to motivate you . try something new and fun,start off small and work your way up. don't look at the past on the present do something even if it is small and go from there emoticon emoticon

    An event, perhaps, a new challenge to provide you with the motivation to up your game?

    Holidays are difficult. Not reaching a goal does NOT mean failure - it just means a short detour. Get back to those short-term goals and babysteps, and you'll soon be back on the road to success!

    Motivation or not, at the very least track what you're doing and eventually you'll see what's going on and be back in onderland! New Year, New Start!

  The holidays are always the toughest time. I know that onderland number is really important to you and you will see that again!!! but do not let that get you down. Instead say ok , holidays were rough but its january and "i can do this" . Dont focus an the numbers for a little bit but say to yourself Is this the best choice I can make today, right now, when it comes to eating. and I joined a 10 minute exercise challenge. Even though it is only 10 minutes I have stuck with it all week, and feel so proud of myself for doing that. When you start making one good choice in your day you just want to make another, then another!!
Check out my blog from this morning for some things that really helped me feel and be successful this week.
Good luck and stay strong....kat

    most importantly, don't beat yourself up. you did what almost everyone in the country did--put on a few holiday pounds. it's not the end of the world, you're not a failure, you're in great company, and you can do what you did before, IF you don't let discouragement keep you down. success is just getting up one more time than you fall down...some of us fall a lot, but if we keep getting up, we win....even if we're battered and bruised. emoticon

    Baby steps, one day at time. Perhaps a slight change up in your workout routine? I know you can do it, I know it is frustrating, but we are here for you and we all can do this together!! emoticon emoticon

    My goal was the same. I hit Onederland one week before Christmas and was able to maintain. It's time to clear your mind of negative thoughs and get ready to board the bus leaving for Onederland. Leave Twoserville for good this time and never look back. Pat emoticon

    You know how to get back to Onederland: the same way you did it before: One Day At A Time.
