Periodically throughout the year, I always tell myself that it is time to start over. I get off track and then come back here to sparkpeople, full of vigor and zest to: (1) track everyday! (2) blog everyday! (3) be awesome everyday (4) lose all the weight right away!... which as those of you sparkers who know, is not the way it usually works. Although I vow to blog and update daily, that has rarely worked for me in the past for more than a few days. But! I saw a great idea on one of the message boards recently- A weekly update blog! I think this is a much better idea for me. I will only need to write 52 update blogs... instead of 365. Much more manageable.
So here goes. I started this year newly single (again, lol) and quite a few pounds heavier since the last time I logged on. But instead of setting my sights absurdly high with my all-or-nothing personality, I set it very small. I only made 2 goals for myself on January 1. #1- Take the dogs for a walk and #2 Eat at least 5 servings of vegetables. And somehow, after just walking the dogs and eating more fruits and veggies, I managed to do other things too- even though I told myself I didn't have to.
So, in retrospect, over the last (almost) week, I have lost 10#s simply through consistency.
My goal for this week is to continue being active (at least 10 minute walks) EVERY day and continue to eat fruits and vegetables. Keeping Consistency
