Today is June 1, 2011. I have not been on Sparkpeople for over a month and a half. It has been a very discouraging time for me and I really don't know why. There have been no major crises in my life, just the usual "stuff" of every day life. My mom continues to have ups and downs medically, but you just deal with that. My husband is still out of work, that is very frustrating for me. I think he likes it and doesn't want to go back to work full time. I really feel like I am starting over, so my goal for this month is to drink my 8 glasses of water a day and track my food. I have no goal to lose this month, I just want to get reorganized and remotivated. If I lose a couple of pound in the process, more the better, but I need to stop putting everyone else in my life first (husband, parents, job) and focus on me. I commit to try my best. My friend Siobhan keeps giving me gentle nudges to return to Sparkpeople and I thank her for that. I know I have at least one supportive friend. (even though neither one of us has much willpower to resist temptation) We keep trying. Chin up, Stay strong, Focus on Self! my mantra for the month.
