So it's been almost a week since I signed up for SparkPeople. I've sadly never stuck to anything this long, so I'd say I'm doing pretty good. However, I haven't put much effort into actually being active and watching what I eat. I guess I just wanted to see where I was at in my life without actually thinking about it. I've been all over the place. The first couple days I was way over in calories then I was way under. Everything else is basically the same.
I think what I need to work on is finding foods that can actually satisfy all the categories rather than having some go over and some go under like it is now. A little over a month ago I decided to be a vegetarian, so that really helped cut out a lot of going out to eat since there really isn't very many options for me.
I also need to find a way to be active that I won't absolutely hate, which is hard because I've always hated active stuff. I used to ride my bike all the the time but then one day a kid started laughing at me, so now I have this fear of riding it because I feel like everyone is going to make fun of how stupid I look. So I really need to figure something else out.
I've also been trying to work on some self-esteem kind of stuff. I was diagnosed with depression. I'm really hoping I can get off my meds soon! But I've been trying to write down one thing I love about my self and one good thing that's happened to me every day. It's been a lot harder than I thought it would, but I have been keeping up, thankfully.
I guess I'll add another entry later!
