This week was my return to Spark People. Tomorrow, I start to work toward my health and fitness goals. I have started to track my steps and my food intake, with my food intake log being by far the most daunting. I get scared that I can't do it right, now- so I may never do it right. What I'm trying to understand is that such an idea is so incredibly NOT THE POINT of tracking my nutrition. The Point isn't to see what I'm doing now as the way I'll be doing it for ever- the Point is that I will be doing better every day.
Or, at least, better over time. According to SP, It'll take me about a year to drop the pounds I've carried, this far. In a way, that's helpful, but it also isn't. I guess my sense of time is a bit troubling. At one moment, it seems like PLENTY Of time, the next- it seems like next week! I forget how long it takes me to get through a day, typically.
Some people say to take things a day at a time. some people reduce that to an hour, others will try to divide that up... I'm not sure how I'm going to work this, but I know that I can. Tomorrow starts my return to the Spark Program, along with some other ideas I have floating about. I will learn the Spark Program thoroughly, and implement what I find working. I will try to incorporate ideas I think are related and take the year to see where I get. My goal, right now, is to nurture myself to my Personal Goal Weight and fully understand how to life a healthy life.
