A New Year, A New Start (Part 1)
Wednesday, January 16, 2013
Hello everyone on Spark People! Happy Late 2013 New Year. I'm glad that I'm still present here to see everyone trying to reach their goals. Even if I didn't quite reach my goal from last year, I'm going to try to make it this year. A fresh start for me and I'm sure for the rest of you too who tried. Failure is a learning experience as I see it. I didn't lose 50 lbs like I wanted last year, but I did lose near 30 lbs so I'm proud that I've at least attempt to make a change. Although I've lost some weight last year, I need to push myself further to reach my new goal this year.
My new year resolution for the year 2013 is: (just some of the ones that concern this website)
1. Lose 30-50lbs this year. (This way I'll be closer to the ideal weight I set here on sparkpeople. I know it may take time but I have a whole year to work on it.)
2. Live a healthier lifestyle. (Drink more water, workout more, watch my proportions, and be more active.)
3. Become more of a beautiful person inside and outside. (Pretty up more and not be ashame of who I am when I look in the mirror, and become a better person who others can relate to.)
These sound more like goals than resolution, but I'm willing to make some change so I might as well follow up on it as whatever it would be called.
I've been plateau and trying to lose weight. I'll lose some and then I'll gain some back. I keep hovering around the same weight range. I have to step it up to lose more. New workout routine to confuse my muscle, or maybe I'm gaining muscle weight. I'm not sure, but I really need to workout more and be more active.
Food wise, I've been letting it go a bit since there's all these holidays that past. (Christmas and the New Year.) I need to watch my proportions because I've been gaining a couple of pounds that I lost plus a couple more pounds due to over eating. I need to keep track of the calories I take in and I need to stop making excuses (such as: I'll start over again tomorrow, I'll lose it as soon as I can...whenever that is..., I'll start doing the right thing, I'll workout more, I'll exercise to lose this extra calories that I just gained today, and so much more along this line.) Also to note, I should really watch it with the free snacking and such, it is so bad for me when I don't know or don't keep track of what I'm putting into my mouth.
I guess I've been losing the minimum or the average because that's all I've been doing just the minimum or average. I need to do my best, and perform at my best if I want to lose weight the best way possible. I am my worst enemy. I have to fight against myself to make it and that's probably why I'm not losing the desired weight that I set for myself.
Next time I'll remember to include what I promise to write in my previous blog about the word “No” and how other people affected me. I'm trying to find that article since I forgot where I found it.
It's funny how when I update these it's mostly on Mondays and Wednesday. I guess I must be having too much fun on the weekends.
Stay tune for part two of this blogging segment.
Thanks for reading! :)
