I haven't had a ton of it lately, or rather should I say I haven't had much time to myself lately. Over the course of this month I've been kind of going through the motions of being a responsible adult with my numerous errands and well paying the bills (aka work). But even so I've still am consistent with my work outs and have managed to keep my eating under control so I'm proud of myself for that. Though last week I did gain a pound, I'm sure it will be gone by my wednesday weigh in. I've come to a small realization. I've read so many times that "SP is a lifestyle change and not a diet." Well I think I finally transitioned my thinking into knowing that statement is 100% truth. When I joined sparkpeople I wanted to lose weight then be healthy ...in that order. This is how I know I've transitioned so to speak. The "old me" just wanted to lose weight and didn't really care how or if it was safe. I seriously felt that I didn't have to be healthy until after I lost the weight ( how silly is that). The "new me" actually pays attention to the nutrients I eat. I take a supplement and strive stay in the recommended ranges. Also I don't freak out as much when the scale doesn't give me the number I want that day. I know as long as I'm eating healthy and moving more I will get there eventually.
