Happy 2014~!

Saturday, January 18, 2014

Dear Sparkfriends,

I know I have not been a good Sparkfriend, I tend to just put in my tracked foods/exercise into the tracker on my mobile phone,
& then don't think to check in on my computer for some actual interaction (& motivation).

Which, really- that's a huge part of Spark. Maybe why I keep spinning my wheels these days?

A couple months ago, our scale broke (really!) I'd thought it was erratic, but then you'd step on it & the numbers would fly up to 500+, new batteries didn't help~
& we are on a new budget thing where we don't use credit cards for ANYTHING & on strict food/gas budget-
so do I really want to spend $20 + on a new scale?
Not really.

& the scale would hurt my feelings & progress more often than not-
I'd be eating well & exercising regularly , so excited to step on the scale & @&%@!

But, now- I have no excuse.
I'm not exercising, & really have not been eating well.

Or, really- I eat well all day, until night time when I have been eating a bunch of junk & drinking way too much wine.

Then, two days ago I got a stomach bug.

So, I haven't been eating much At All- & one thing is I still don't want to drink wine & the thought of eating fatty potato chips makes me ill.

So, it's kind of a silver lining- though I would not wish this feeling on anyone.
& I know it won't last, so I'm hoping my new mindset does.

I have 7 weeks to lose 10 pounds, so I can fit in my jeans again for SXSW festival.I can only fit into one pair of old 'Mom Jeans' , & it's not a good look.

I went shopping yesterday with no appetite, but I do anticipate getting one- & got all whole foods, no bags of chips.
I went through the flyer to find the sales on tons of fruit ~ & one indulgence- my beloved aged Gouda , which you know you only need a 1/2 ounce sliver to be really satisfied.
Oh, & an apple to go with it & it's heaven.

I hope you are well, & on track- I'm going to look around Spark & find folks who are sticking with the program & keeping their weight off.

Good luck in this bright & beautiful new year!

    I can relate. My scale works but I ignore my scale too much. And the potato chips know me by name. I love gouda cheese - it is one of my favorites. To die for!! Food of the gods!
