Starting over today

Wednesday, October 30, 2013

Well, the last two months have not been pretty. Since vacation things have been stressful at work and stressful at home. I can't say I've even been "trying" lately. I've re-gained about 15 pounds.

A coworker and I have discussed that our weightloss and exercise are things we can control in our lives right now with everything that's going on at work... today I'm going to take steps to take back that control.

I'm resetting my Striiv to get my motivation back to get my 10,000 steps in each day. I'll head to the gym this morning before going to work. I'm going to start tracking my food.

Back to work!

For my own personal record, here are my Striiv stats since I last reset it on May 11th:

    I find it so hard to get back into healthy routines after vacation. And you've had added stress too.

But you're doing it!

    At least you are restarting! Yay, go girl go. Like you said, it is something you can control. Reminds me to be on my toes as any of us can get distracted by life.
