Thursday - Reality Check

Thursday, June 27, 2013

I've had them before, you know. Like when at a restaurant I got sort of wedged into a booth and had a very hard time getting out...while college kids snickered at me across the aisle. Yeah, that was a fun reality check, sigh.

Yesterday's was from looking at my Fitbit dashboard more. Typically, you know I just looked at my steps and my sedentary time. Since I've bee logging my food since Sunday, I started looking at that on the dashboard.

Ouch. Big ol' ouch. Somehow, seeing it in a different setting and laid out in a slightly different way than SparkPeople's...well, let's just say it was an eye opener - possibly just because it's DIFFERENT, you know? I've been on SP since 2006, and well, I'm really used to it. Same old, same old. Seeing the information provided in a different way was eye opening.

A reminder of why I haven't had astounding success at weight loss. But also a motivator to see how I can get those numbers, graphs etc to line up the way I want them too.

Step count is not where I want it. Motivation has been low to get outside and walk. I have 7 days til my next 5K, so it's time to get back on that routine of walking every night.

That's my check in from my little corner of the world. :)

    Sounds like the Fitbit is really helping you see the changes you need to make and getting you more motivated to make the changes. That is emoticon . I know you can do it and will be cheering you on along the way!

    Motivation is so important. I think as you get going you will get more motivation and energy. Don't give up.
