I start each day saying today will be the day, then it's over & I didn't accomplish anything. I hate what I look & feel like, you'd think that would be enough. I don't want to get old & not be able to be active, yet once again, I don't make any changes longer than a day or two. I really need to figure this out! Tue, 2 May 2017 14:04:48 EST Still at it! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6275313 It was a little eye opening yesterday with how much sodium was in the food I was eating, did ok with calories was under in protein & fiber. I will continue with recording today while focusing on getting in at least 10 minutes of exercise & drinking my 8 glasses of water. Small baby steps, I'm really tired of the yo-yo dieting.

Fri, 2 Dec 2016 12:01:34 EST My day! http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6274787 As I read over the wonderful comments from my last blog & they had some great ideas, so thank you to everyone for taking the time to post on my blog. Everyone morning I get up saying today I will make changes & yet once again nothing! Last night I got on the scales & I weighed more than I every have, so I ask myself a simple question, "WHY"? I don't have any answers & it makes me feel terrible. I have been in such a funk for the last couple of months. My Mom passed away last March & I've even... Thu, 1 Dec 2016 10:14:57 EST A few days http://www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_individual.asp?blog_id=6273887 I'm still not making the changes I need to be making, somehow I have to find the energy to get it together. I know I'm the only one that can do this, it just doesn't seem to come to me. I know if I don't make the changes, my health with get worse and as I age I won't have the energy or strength to keep at it, yet I don't make the changes. I get so mad at myself & then I think I sabotage myself. I tell myself every day that today will be the day & then it comes night & I still haven't done an...

How many times have I told myself that this will be the time, that I can do it? How do I get the real motivation to stay with it, now just for a few days or weeks but for my life time? If I don't do something, then my health will go downhill & then it will be too late! So even thought writing everything down is very time consuming, I know it helps & hopefully I can do it! Not tomorrow, not next week, not for New year's but for today right now...

So it is what it is for the time being, I'm not going to stress out because I can't follow with "ME" time. Plans are to go to the gym after dropping off kids at school tomorrow, we'll see.
