Take a good hard look at yourself and your general life and try to answer why what you say is happening and then try to change 1 thing at a time…You say…
So January was BUST for me
--Jan is gone, say good bye, good riddance and start a new month fresh…
I am slipping into a FAMILIAR pattern
--Great!! You caught it before the pattern actually set in..
--If you want, check out my sparkpage for a blog I wrote on reasons I could find why we binge eat. Maybe something applies to you.
not tracking what I am eating on SP
--ok, I admit it, this is not something I do either but my diet plan works for me
making excuses to not exercise
--everyone is not a born exerciser! But remember that exercise makes us feel better. Also, don’t go in with the intention of doing a long lengthy workout. Tell yourself you will only do 15 mins. More often than not, you will feel like continuing after the first 15 mins. Go with a buddy if possible, take different group classes if possible. Variety is a spice of life!
transferring emotional stresses onto poor choices
--you know you are making poor choices. Besides eating junk food doesn’t take away stress. Later it only makes us feel worst
in essence- sabotaging myself
--why?? Why would you do that?
i am so close to tears
--Sorry to hear that, wipe the tears away and take Action
i just can't shake myself out of this horrible rut
--Please examine all areas of your life. Is there any other emotional distress going on?
and the worst thing is that i absolutely know that i am making poor choices and i keep doing it.
--Again, why would you do that?
i'm really struggling to get on track
--You are a step ahead as you recognize the need that you are struggling and hence you will be able to overcome any obstacles.
i know SP says make small changes - daily / manageable
--Yes, small manageable changes is the way to go
but i just have lost so much momentum.
--Swing yourself back into the momentum. Only you can. What I wrote are words and what anyone else can say are words. Only you can take corrective actions for yourself!
--Hope this helps you. Sending you bright, sunny, cheerful wishes….
