It has been way too long since my last blog, since I have tracked food, tracked exercise, and really way to long since I have done anything positive for my body and my mind. TODAY starts a new ME!
I have been saying for weeks to my husband that "I need to sign on to Spark People again - tracking my food and exercise is the only way for me to be successful. And, I miss my Spark Friends!" Well, today, I finally signed on and I have reset my goals, updated my page, and I am ready to go.
I have a new notebook, my online tools, and a new resolve to lose this weight by New Years! I have done it before and I will do it again. My next step is to get my husband who has been saying, "god I need to lose weight - I can't stand myself and I feel like crap" on board! I am going to try and speak to him tonight a little bit. I am going to do the 5 days good eating, 2 days of fun eating (not badly, but just give myself some wiggle room). When I did that before, I was very successful.
I am also going to get back into the gym as soon as the doctor clears me for full exercise. In the meantime, I am going to start walking more - for example, I will walk the 2.5 miles to Camden Yards tonight. I have been getting off of the bus earlier in the evenings and walking home from a farther distance than normal. I think with my injury I gave up on working out at all since I can't lift or go to my classes. I forgot that I could still be active by walking more, but today that changes and I am getting my walk on!
I hope everyone is doing well - I am sorry that I have missed a significant part of your journey and I can't wait to catch up with everyone and see how you all are doing.
This journey is not short term, it is long term. I will always struggle with my eating, but I truly believe that I can and will be successful and happy again!
MAKING TODAY COUNT!
