Keep stopping and starting.

Thursday, January 31, 2013

It must be the same for alot of people who are trying to start a new way of life and then things get in the way. I start each day to be good and then by the afternoon I stop. I know I want to do this but it seems so big and hard. I am doing the exercise but my eating it not good. I dont eat loads but I do eat the wrong things. So tomorrow is the 1st Feb. In 11 weeks time it is my husband leaving do after being in the army for 38 years. I would like to be 28 pounds lighter by then. I dont think that is a hard goal to go for.
I work long hours 12 hour shifts but also have good amount of time off. So my plan is to lose this 2 stone to begin with and then go on from there. I need to eat better . I find the evening the hardest especially if I am in on my own. I will have to do something about. I know you can all give me tons of support but in the end I am the only person that can make this happen.
So I am goingto start again and see what happens.
thank you for reading my rant. I am really doing it to get myself in the right frame of mind.
thanks for listen

    Don't give up - it took me ages to get started properly too!
Have you thought about setting yourself tiny goals on the way to the bigger ones? Once you start to achieve them it really gives your motivation a boost.

    Hang in there, Immy - you can do it!!! Try reading some of the great information under the Motivation section under the Articles & Videos tab on the orange toolbar. Also, consider joining a Spark Challenge - you'll find those under the Community tab - they're a great way to stay motivated with a group of others supporting you in same Challenge.

I need to join another Spark Challenge myself - I was doing much better when I was "checking in" with the Challenge members on my progress every day.

Good luck & take care,
