That's how I would describe my journey since the holidays. I walk/workout for 2-3 days; then nothing for 3-4 days. Same with tracking food; diligent for a couple days; nothing for a couple of days. Just not getting in to any Spark routine.
I don't feel discouraged or "down" about this situation--yet. I stll feel the committment, just not the enthusiasm that would "push" me through difficult days. I know I'm not prioritizing me but prioritizing "things to do" before my needs/health. Not good. Still, like I said, I don't feel discouraged (yet!!). I know what I need to do and feel confident that I'll get myself back on track.
My schedule has been a bit crazy since the holidays but that's no excuse. I'm spending more time at daughter's helping with grandkids as delivery gets closer. She is starting to feel pretty miserable and we are all excited for the baby to get here!! Another 4-5 weeks.
Weather has been miserable. Cold and rainy today although it's been warm and rainy for the past week. That is still no excuse for not getting tush out there to walk. I have warm clothes and, since I'm not made of sugar (as my mom would say!) I won't melt in the rain. Lacking the committment and drive right now. Mojo will return, I'm sure.
Good news. My son had lost 80 pounds a little over a year ago (could have lost more but didn't). Since then he has gotten engaged and gained about 90-100 pounds. He finally reached his breaking point. He's back on WW; has lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks and went to a doctor (his own decision!!) I'm very pleased with all of this. He is much like a bride--losing weight for the wedding!!! I actually think it's more than that; at least I hope it is!
So my life is moving on with lots of blessings. I will get back on track soon, I hope. I NEED to start making the good decisions again.
