The first chapter of my weight loss journey here on Spark seemed to come so easy. I put at least 1,000 percent effort into it if not more, or so it seems and the weight melted off.
Then came chapter 2 - a bumpy ride.
Well frankly, I can't end chapter 2 until I resolve my whole bumpy-ride situation, and that's what I've been doing, little by little.
Tonight I got back into tracking my food for the week. I've been planning my meals and portioning them over the past few weeks or so, but I knew I had to get back into tracking my meals.
It's there where I tend to have my most success - that is when I use both the food and exercise trackers and follow through on what I plan.
I've left the exercise tracker blank to fill out through the week as I do my exercises, in case I want to mix it up a bit, and pick an activity based on my mood or something.
I'll see how that works because I have to frankly get back into a regular groove there too.
It's not that I don't want to put in the effort, but I feel as if some of the strength that I had in chapter one of my journey is gone, not due to a lack of motivation really, but due to a lack of real energy.
I'm hoping that will pick up, and I'm hoping it will pick up this week because I really need things to start turning around.
I guess the only way to make that happen is to start doing it no matter what kind of energy I have or don't have, and maybe in the process I'll create some to help me out.
Well, speaking of energy, I probably should get some sleep! Zzzzzz.
