Bonus blog to my mind!

Monday, July 15, 2013

Well, we are suppose to write a blog to our mind. I am not good with all of the telling myself good things. I've read several articles about doing it, it just hasn't become a habit yet. Since starting Spark, I've had some long streaks eating correctly, staying in my range, writing down what I eat, and exercising regularly. After weeks and weeks I get on the scale, and no change. My friends try to make me feel better by telling me I've gained muscle. But my clothes don't feel any looser. It is very hard sometimes to keep going, but most of the time I do. The main reason I get off is schedule changes. I'll go on a trip and eat out too much or not have internet, and then there's the exercise I don't do when I have changes. So mind, I can do this. It will eventually come off if I follow my plan. I am eating so much healthier now, more fruit especially, not as many veggies, which might be part of the problem. I'll try more veggies and less fruit. I need to get down and get serious about exercise too.

    Take it one step at a time. One thing you can do is give up sodas and sweet drinks. That has helped me a a lot. All I drink is water with every meal.

    Peg - nice to see you trying to identify your obstacles. It's really hard, but you seem to going on the right track. I struggle with that every day - making good decisions - I do a lot of exercise - but then sometimes I make really bad choices in my diet. Or vice/versa.

    I am with you Peg on the "I can do it for a long time but then some schedule change interrupts it". I just wish maintenance was easy!

    Very good Peg. You just hang in there and keep going. that is the most important thing. Try new things and just do it a little at a time. You will get there.
