been away for a while

Friday, May 01, 2009

Well i've been away from sparkpeople for a while, we moved house and things got a bit crazy. I let things go a bit because it seemed much easier to get take aways than to cook when things were so mad, and strangely i didn't put on any weight and contintued to lose. I guess because i was still controling my portions and all the stuff you do when you move house is quite good exercise.

Unfortunatly when things calmed a bit i've found it really hard to get back on track. the motivation i once had has ebbed, I think the fact that i stopped logging was my big downfall - since i'm losing the relationship in my mind between eating & excersise and weight loss/gain - but tracking is SO hard, it takes such a long time and with so many other things i should be doing i can't help feeling guilty about how much time i'm 'wasting' on the computer.

Also a new house means a new lifestyle, my daughter's now at home full time which makes it nearly impossible to get out for a run - i know i should just to a sparkpeople routine andy my streangth training but I can't seem to motivate myself.

I've restarted back at level 2 since i didn't feel i was really following the program before - i'm hoping i can use it to motivate myself. I think i just need to put some time aside to read some of the motivational pages and refocus my priorities.

anyway, swimming lesson to take my son to, so i'm off again

    Its hard to find that motivation but once you get back into it, you'll want to keep going. You've done really well so far.
    Come and chat on the board sometimes - I could do with some motivation too :)
    Congrats on your new home.
