Time To Start Again

Friday, April 25, 2014

I did SO well last year. And then... stress, mostly, from an intense, long-term project at work combined with the coldest and darkest winter I can ever remember (and that's saying something!) de-railed me. I didn't feel like getting out of the bed in the cold and dark (I sense a theme here) to hit the treadmill, didn't feel like going after work to the aqua aerobics and get out into a cold car in the dark. Hmmmmm. It is so easy to fall out of good habits and back into old not-so-good routines. I know this. I knew this. And yet.



I stepped on the scales this morning and .2 of a pound would have pushed me back into a range I never want to see again. So it's time to renew, revitalize, revamp and re-lose. Today. Now. Forever. Time to stop the need to start over. I will do this for once and for all.

    I can relate to the winter - ours was bad also and I easily packed on 10 pounds - but the sun is shining again and it's a great time to start over. Good luck to you - keep those visualizations and someday they will be real - not just a goal. emoticon

    Welcome back! I'm right there with you. I'm making more of a habit to track my food, and it's already helping me stay accountable. I'm really needing that! emoticon

    DECIDING is 90% of the process ... the rest is just following your plan.

    Glad to see you are back! (I'm assuming you haven't been on here) Staying active on spark can only help you. I know it helps me. I had to quit the gym back in January. I haven't lost any weight since then. which is disappointing. However, I still come on here and track my food, so I have not gained anything. I can thank spark for that. Now that the cruel winter is over, I am getting out and exercising a lot more, so I am hoping the scale will move soon. I know starting over can be tough, but you've taken the first steps. Good for you! Keep sparking!
