Where'd that Wagon Go?

Friday, February 08, 2013

I feel like I keep falling off, running to catch up, jumping back on, falling off again, rolling into the bushes, then trying to find the wagon again but all I get is dust clouds in my face.

Argh.

So - I believe I will take a teeeeeeny tiny baby step and just work on consistency. Even if I don't log a whole day's worth of food, I will log at least ONE thing that I ate each day. Or water consumed. Or whatever I can.

I've been good about wearing my Fitbit. It syncs automatically, so as long as I'm diligent about keeping it charged, I'm good to go. I've also been pretty regular about using the new treadmill and going to do Curves workouts. I've also been better about going to bed earlier.

There, I've got some positive things going.

I can think of about a dozen other things that I need to work on, but I'm just going to pick that one that I think will make working on all of those others a lot easier....consistency.

My goal is to log into SparkCoach/Sparkpeople once a day for however many days I can. Even if it's just to spin that wheel.

    Habits take a while to build, so give yourself some time and space to work on them!!

    Thank you both for the benefit of your wisdom...and the encouragement! I think I also need to look for a wagon with seat belts this time, so when the bumps of life come, I'm tethered in well. : )

    That's a girl! Never give up. Dip toe back into the water and move on from wherever you are right this moment! emoticon

    Good to see you back on board. It sounds like you are doing great so far with your exercise.
I worked on consolidating one thing at a time, sleep, fitness activity, both pretty well bedded in, leaving food til last. Paying attention to my eating has not disrupted my exercise or sleep gains, they are well established and I feel great about that.
I check into SP daily and go for the bonus spin. Over time the points have been from articles, others' blogs etc, now it is from activity, water, food tracking (intermittently), my own blogs.

AT LOOOONG LAST I have started tracking and planning my food, not always on SP because that is clunky for us kiwis. It is SO worthwhile, but I have taken a long time to come round to it.
My point is, big changes take time and they do need to be incorporated, because you will be maintaining those changes for a long time. It took a long time to gain your excess weight, if it takes a while to rearrange things, all the better, IMHO
