My first blog post.

Monday, July 01, 2013

Well, here it is. My first blog post. I haven't wanted to blog because I didn't think I needed it. I have been a spark member for almost a year now. I started well and then fizzled out. And then I started again and I lost 15#. I have been stuck on this plateau for the last 2 months and I am starting to get frustrated with myself. I know what I need to do. I'm just not doing it. I am not holding myself accountable and I am not trying very hard. I have been exercising and being pretty consistent there but I have not made any changes to my diet. I have a degree in Dietitics and I can't convince myself to make changes to my diet! So I've decided that I need to journal and try to hold myself accountable for my eating habits.

So like all good sparkpeople I am going to set small goals and work towards them. My goals for this week:
*Drink 64oz of water per day.
*Eat 3 servings or more of Fruit and Veggies per day
*Pack a lunch for each work day.

If I meet my goals I will reward myself with a new pair of work pants in my current size. All of my pants right now are at least 1 size too big. I need to celebrate how far I've come and motivate myself to keep going.

    Great blog, great attitude, great plan! Small, attainable goals are definitely the way to go, over and over if need be. You know just what to do, and you'll do great.
