M.I.A. - Missing In Apathy

Thursday, January 14, 2010

I've spent the last months M.I.A. That's Missing In Apathy as well as Missing in Action.

I've been so busy wallowing in all the things I need to do for family, for work, for friends, for whatever that I've forgotten to think about what I need to do for me. The few times I have thought about where I am health-wise and fitness-wise I have pushed those thoughts aside. I didn't want to face them and admit that my exercise is not progressing, my nutrition is back-sliding, and my weight has crept up an extra ten pounds. And, yes, most often I gave into the depression of weight-gain by popping something else to eat in my mouth.

I know better. I've been this route before. I promised myself I was going to focus on fitness and health and not let myself get out of control again. But, I'm through kicking myself, too. I know I don't need to beat myself up - unless that's part of the exercise I've scheduled for the day. emoticon I acknowledge that I just need to get out of bed in the morning and do my exercise instead of resetting the alarm and rolling over. I realize I need to stay consistent in tracking all my food and nutrition to ensure I'm staying within my calorie range and not eating mindlessly. But, most of all, I realize I need to continue to find motivation through SparkPeople.com and support from my friends and family.

So, here I am. I'm ready to be M.I.A. in a different way....Making Intense Achievements.

    Do you work? I started posting on my door at work how many days I've done 10 min a day of exercise. It's gotten me off my behind and on treadmill a couple of times in the last 15 days.

    Key thing is go back to basics. I'm reading The Spark and so much of this is getting those early successes in. Go back to square one and focus on a couple of little things for a week. When you've got those down then move on. Too much, too fast is a quick way to dropping out again.

    Good luck ... you can do this!!

    Way to go, Get back on track and make SP a daily part of your life. The support you get her is amazing.

    Also as a Ventura Sparker I'm trying to get this team together when ever it is possible for you. We are walking at noon on Tues. and Thurs in Westlake Village and Again on Sundays at 7;30am

    Yay!!! You should joint the SP 30 day Body Bootcamp! Even though it started like the 3rd, each day it has a SP video it wants you to do, and while they're short, they beat you up! I've been doing those in addition to whatever else I'm doing. It's a great start!
