Finding my happiness with SparkPeople Again...
Monday, June 10, 2013
I sat down on Friday night and read a bunch of my blogs I have written on Spark. A recurring theme was happiness. I was so happy at the time in my life and I have really come to see that right now I am not happy...
For nearly 3 years I have fought with yo-yo dieting. I start off strong and then my motivation waivers. I find excuses in the things around me - my kids, my husband, where I live, our schedule and use them to stop myself. Keeping me in this viscous cycle of yo-yo dieting and unhappiness. I want that happiness that I read in my old blogs - even through tough times and stress I kept trudging through the workouts and lost weight, so I know I can do it now!!
I can't change the things around me; the excuses can no longer be the excuses because they will always be there tomorrow. But my happiness won't be unless I start working at finding it. I know I am happy with when I workout, eat healthy, and look good!!
I know it is the 10th, but I am going to set my June Goals:
* Track my food and workouts
* Blog once a week
* Drink my water and then a little more!
* Not weighing myself - going by how I feel or how the clothes are fitting!
If you blog and you haven't done it - go back and read some of your first entries and then some in the middle of your weight loss... it puts life in perspective!!!
