End of my 1st month...

Tuesday, April 02, 2013

Well, March was quite a game changer for me! I started back up on SparkPeople right at the beginning of the month and I have been diligently working out 5-6 times a week and tracking my food. Down 10 lbs for the month and I'm feeling great! I'm already noticing I have to push myself a little harder on things that I was struggling with at the beginning of the month. I did go a little crazy all of Easter weekend with food. Between Syracuse University getting into the Final Four ( emoticon Go 'Cuse!) and some Easter feasting I consumed tons of excess calories, but I got right back on track today! I've also learned it's OK to give in to some cravings every now and again and not have to feel shameful. In the past if I caved and ate a pint of ice cream, my workouts and healthy eating would go down the toilet! Now, I know that if I'm watching what I'm eating and keeping up with the exercising, I know that one weekend of excess calories won't throw me off track. I have the confidence to keep going and stay positive, despite a little setback this weekend. Total game changer.

I'm looking forward to continue to push myself, not only physically, but mentally! Since starting back up on my fitness plan, my attitude has really changed for the better, too! (With the exception of a few funky days here and there!) I really appreciate the SP support... it makes this whole process a lot easier knowing I'm not the only on going through all this! Cheers to a fabulously fit April... and GO 'Cuse!! emoticon

    Congrats to you! Yep, that's how I'm feeling with this new community (well, new to me!) and how I just get right back on track and in the long haul, I'm healthier and slimmer for it! Well done for recognizing that!

    Congrats to your team, too! :-)
