February 2013

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I was trying to wait to blog until I was in a mood more reflective of the great success I had in January but February is slipping away and the mood is not improving. Thank goodness Spring is just around the corner.

I lost 11.8 pounds last month! Yay!

15.7% of my goal
5.3% of my body weight

The first month is usually the best. My goal sheet worked for half of January, then I lost it and quit making sure I did everything, everyday. I HAVE logged my calories truthfully everyday - that is a first for me. Anytime I have pursued weight-loss I have not tracked every day for a month long stretch. Ever. I am pleased with that.

I have the same amount of determination to complete my goals. I don't have that heightened enthusiasm as that first week. Still going strong though.

Looking forward to spring. I am excited to see how many of the bulbs I planted come up. I am excited to garden, it is our first year. My husband is a little crazy, he is going overboard. I don't think he realizes how much work it is. We were talking though, if we won the lottery both of us would want to buy a big farm and grow a variety of organic produce. I sometimes think I would love to sell produce and jams at a farmer's market. It seems like such a satisfying life, very connected to the earth. Concrete.

I digress because I am trying to think of something worthy of writing about in regards to healthy life styles and weight loss but am coming up blank. I will say, reading the message boards, other people's blogs and the articles on SP has been very inspiring and has helped keep my on track when I would rather eat chips or cake.

I read a neat mantra somewhere, "you never regret eating too little the next day"

    Great Job in January. Can you use it to motivate you to do more in February? I'm willing to be a person as strong as you are can do it.

    I think Feb is the toughest month of the year, so how positive of you to focus on spring. I try and do the same thing, but I focus on how each day is a little longer, a little brighter. Just thinking about it puts a "spring" into my step. So here's to continued success, renewed hope because spring is almost here!
