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! :)
