So I really don't check my Sparkmail. Not going to lie, its probably one of the more awkward features of the site that feels clunky. (sorry Spark Team leaders!)
But I got one today from a Spark Coach, so I thought I'd check it out -- they want me to fill out the success story questionnaire to see if I could be a featured story or at least add it to the database. I'm preeeetty sure the asked me before and I ignored it.
Well this time I actually clicked on the link, and it didn't work. :-/
Sometimes i don't feel like I have done anything. I don't feel like a success. I know I post a lot of positive blogs, but if you put me in a corner with a bright light and ask me questions, you will get a very different Sara.
I don't like to brag, I don't like to boast, I don't like to think of myself as a success when I'm PMSing and have had five candy bars this week… I'm in a dark period of "oh I'll get this done soon" and "oh I'll work out tomorrow, but its snow shoveling" and "oh I'll eat better once I move out of my parents house" and "oh I'll eat a lot better once I actually make enough money to pay my bills" …
You know what those are = excuses.
I got fatter of Christmas. I know it. My jeans are TIGHT. I am going to reset on Monday and really try to buckle down on food. Currently I'm trying to plan my semester, dig out of all of this -20 windchill weather, and have a short vacation planned for this weekend.
But seriously I need to snap the heck out of this excuses loop I've been in since Christmas.
SO what do I need to do:
--drink more water
--count calories again (eeeh? probably)
So yea, that's basically the list for how to lose weight in a nutshell. Simple right (everyone rolls their eyes)
Oh yea, so my little trip? My fiancé wanted to take a break before my semester starts and wanted to go visit his alma mater in Madison, WI. So the idiots that we are -- are going to go on vacation… to Wisconsin… in the middle of freakin' winter. I really must love this boy because that is ridiculous.
And while we go back to revisit his old college haunts (read = bars and restaurants) and go to a hockey game… then spend Saturday shooting and board gaming, followed by a night out in Milwaukee, WI -- and then church with the best friend of my fiancé who is also the pastor who is going to marry us…
So hopefully I don't freeze this weekend and can actually get over my excuses and on the right path for 2014.
