In Feb of 2008 I have started Sparkpeople. I have had some great success in the beginning which was partially in pounds (-20!) but has been great in feeling, flexibility and endurance and general wellbeing!
Well, the past three years have not been great and I have gained back all my weight. I feel miserable physically and totally overworked and stressed. I can't complain, there have been some great things too in my life, but it has been too busy. I am not blaming anyone. I am determined to change because that nobody can change things for me.
It's February again and with spring my life seems to wake up. I am inclined to think that really you love the month you were born more than any other! So it happens we are on semester break for the month and I will not be travelling. I am determined to take time off and step on the elliptical or do dancing at least 5 times a week for an hour. I have decided to cut short my hours (did a lot of self-imposed overtime that I am NOT paid for) to fit in proper eating and paying attention to my needs as an introvert (which is private desk time!)
I will be tracking.
That's the plan for February. If I manage to stick to it, I will be 10 pounds lighter and hopefully, I will regain some of the lost energy. Very much needed. Both things!
