I really like being a community team member - it helps keep you plugged into SparkPeople and it's good motivation to check in with and reach out to a wider net of people.

Writing in my blog once a week has definitely been a struggle though. Maybe it's PTSD from all of the essays, etc. that I've had to write throughout my academic career:) Not only is writing a struggle, but it really brings out the perfectionist in me in a way that I don't like (not to mention that it's SO time consuming!). I guess I need to figure out how to be ok with whatever I put out there and STOP EDITING again and again to get the wording just so. Blah.

So, weight loss. I desperately need to lose weight. I've always just wanted to be healthy and happy with how I look. But now that it's a possible health issue as well, I NEED to lose those extra pounds. And yet, this has not been extra motivation that I thought it would be (of course, it doesn't help that I can't exercise at all)... I recommit every single day to eating the best that I can, and I do, until I get home late at night. I guess I just really need to go straight to bed, even though there's still a few more hours of work that needs to be done. I think I'll take the strategy of going to sleep as soon as I get home, and then waking up an hour or 2 earlier in the morning to get the things done that I would stay up even later for. No one needs to stay up until 2-4am anyway!!!!

    Just do whatever works to keep you healthy. Probably better off seeing the sunrise anyway! :-) emoticon
