I'm a mess

Wednesday, May 08, 2013

Okay so I am a mess....I don't know how I can be on such a roller coaster.

I got up this morning and decided I had to just do it! I keep waiting for some miracle. It takes hard work.

Life gets in the way all the time. I need to just put myself before everything else! Otherwise this job will never get done!

So, I have made a spreadsheet for myself even though SP does a great job of tracking for me I need to actually put it on a spreadsheet because it makes me think. Sometimes on SP I am on auto pilot. I will continue to track and do all my points on SP but I need that extra step.

So on my sheet is weight, water, fruits and veggies, walking and posting on Fitbit.

Today I tried and did pretty well. I went over 50 calories but tomorrow I won't. I also have decided NO sweets for at least a week whether it is low cal or not. I will eat fruit instead.

I started walking again and took my morning walk. I was pretty tired so I only have 5300. I will work back up to 10,000.

It is already May and I don't want Dec to get here and realize I have done nothing toward my goals.

Keep Sparking my friends.

    Facing it head-on, making yourself a priority, and embrace the journey without shame or guilt but rather with energy and optimism...this is your time!!

    I've always believed the 3 step program ...

Recognize the problem
Admit it
Do something about it

Like Marcie said...somedays may be better than others.
Look at the good you DID DO for that day. Keep those going
for you and add to it the one that maybe you were lax on and boost that one along with the rest.

    Throw ONLY out the window and say today I did, ate and got this done.

You did great and will be better and better because you have a good plan.

REMEMBER that some days will not be as good as you want but then this is okay because you are working on you.

You will amaze yourself.

I have faith in you.

    emoticon This is the 1st step to taking back control! Good for you getting in those steps. It is going to take a little time to work back to the 10,000. I rarely get them in all at once. I get about 7,500 most mornings and then work on the rest throughout the day.
Let's do this-I have to see my new dr in Aug and want to go it in there in good shape-ha ha!
To better health!

    Great job. I think I do better logging things by hand rather than by computer-I just never have time to do both but I also don't want to take forever taking off the weight. emoticon
