New Month - No Excuses

Monday, June 03, 2013

I know I keep saying that I am trying to get back on track. I have one good day and then I get busy and overwhelmed and tell myself "forget it I'll start again tomorrow" or worse yet "I'll start again when things settle down". I've been feeling run down and too tired to cook or exercise so I've been eating more drive thru and even eating donuts and other sweets "to get more energy". My mom-in-law was in the hospital, my husband's car broke down so we had to go car shopping, spring is full of family birthdays and end of school events were among my many excuses.

THIS MONTH THERE WILL BE NO MORE EXCUSES! I can't believe I have let myself slip so far. In January I was half a pound away from 200, now I am 225. I am going to walk with a girl from work when we get off at 6:30 in the morning. I will have healthy meals and snacks prepared for when I am hungry. Yesterday I made some healthier muffins and snack bars. I have planned actual meals that I will make this week and have a shopping list to take to the store.

I know that it is time for a change and this is the month to do it! Please help me out with encouragement and maybe even checking up on me if you want. I'm sure that I can get back on track with help from my spark friends.

    Hop back on the spark wagon. One day at a time. Some day the choices are hard but you have to choose the right ones. You can do it. Stay strong! emoticon emoticon

    You can do it!!

    Planning might seem tedious, but it is SO WORTH it.

    It doesn't matter how many times you slip/fall back. It's that you get up and try again.

    Keep going. :)

    You can do this! I think everyone has slipped and recovered. Don't look at the past - just look forward to each new day.

    Yes you can! Your wisest investment in life is YOU! If you don't take care of yourself, you will NOT be able to take care of your family. Sounds like you finally made a plan to meet your goals! Good for you! Don't feel bad about starting tomorrow what you should have done today! It's NEVER to late until it's too late! One day at a time.....You can do it!
