Get it together girl!

Sunday, April 21, 2013

I've made a plan for healthy choices for the last two weeks, and haven't followed through either week. Its so frustrating! I'll have a plan for my food and fitness, and then life derails my plan - and it let it happen. Its really driving me mad that I lost so much weight before, and I haven't been able to get it together and start losing again - its been almost 3 years since I was at my lowest weight, and I just hit my 7th Spark Anniversary. What was so different back then? I had a dedicated Spark Buddy that I checked in with regularly, but is the absence of a dedicated buddy really the difference?

I know what I need to do to get fit and healthy - why am I not doing those things? How is it that I can feel really unhappy with where my body is, yet I don't follow through with plans to change it?!

I'm so frustrated! I think I need some serious help getting back on track!

I think I need to go back to the basics of what's worked for me in the past: controlling calories, exercising, drinking my water and positive affirmations. Here's my plan: I'm going to set a goal to hit each of my basics everyday. I'll get a star for each goal I meet everyday - so a max of 4 stars per day. When I hit 50 stars, I'll treat myself to a pedicure, and then reevaluate.

Here I go!

    I so get this! It sounds like you know what works for you--one day at a time, and you're on your way!

    I'm not so different and I need to loose weight to get into my wedding outfit by June 18. I'll be your Sparkbuddy. It sill help to keep me honest. I started over again last Wednesday, but I've only been tracking food since Thursday. Let me know if you want a buddy. I'm ready, willing, able, and need a kick in the behind.
