Day 4: I think I need to rethink this a little

Wednesday, February 13, 2013

I was hoping that I could just jump right into this healthy lifestyle. Unfortunately, I have allowed myself to develope some very bad habits that are hindering my ability to change. So, I am going to continue to Spark daily, but I am not going to worry about my eating right now. I need to break a very bad habit of mine...sleeping in! I was diagnosed with bipolar years ago, and used to blame my sleeping in on my depression, but I have since learned that it is more just something I am in the habit of doing...something I have grown fond is something I look forward to doing. It is relaxing and comforting. I have to figure out something else to look forward to...something else that I can get comfort from. I was hoping I would be able to start walking, but it is too dark here first thing in the morning and the neighborhood we are currently living in has no street lights. I think I am going to try and peruse the Spark Community first thing in the morning. I can read blogs and motivational posts, look for good recipes and exercises, and even make some SparkFriends by leaving comments on their posts to help motivate them. I have found that motivating others is one of the most motivating things I can do for myself!!

So, starting tomorrow...after I get my daughter off to school every day, I will be entering the Spark Community...Good bye bad habit...Hello the beginning of a very healthy lifestyle!

    Hi I found you by looking for members close to me that have over a hundred pounds to lose. If you like, we could be SparkBuddies. I struggle with the oversleep as well and didn't start my program of healthy eating right away. Now I am eating basically within my calorie range and am trying to add in 10 minutes of exercise a day.. so I'm moving slowly. At first when I joined SparkPeople, I actually gained 3 pounds, but I stuck with it. Now I am 17 pounds down from that point and working toward my 30 pound marker.

Let me know what you think!

    Hi - found your post by searching for members nearby & in my age group. Hope you are following through on your plan! You'll make it if you keep on doing whatever steps you can manage. I hear you about the dark - I go walking at lunchtime usually.
