....procrastinating on this diet.
It's been a while, Sparkers! Hope everyone's still on track and doing well! I know I am... at least, I'm going to be, again.
As some of you Sparkers know, I have a trip to Disney World coming up this month. I had planned on being a third of the way to my goal weight at this point, so that I would look good on the beach and be able to feel comfortable on the rides.
Unfortunately, I'm not. I could use lots of excuses (sickness! death in the family! vacations! stress from school!) but I won't. While the reasons are valid, it ultimately comes down to one thing - I wasn't strong enough. Like I've always done throughout my life, I saw the first excuse to get out of what I really needed to do and took it. I've let myself down when I really needed this.
So, I'm back. My demons will still be there, and likely will be telling me to give up the moment something that seems easier to do will come along. But you know what? I'm saying no, this time. No excuses. No cop outs.
I won't lose all the weight I need to by Disney, but I'm going to give it my best shot. I owe it to my family, my friends, and my fellow sparkers. Most importantly, though, I owe it to myself.
So, hi, everyone! I'm back. I'm ready to track my food, fitness, and be a better me. Who's with me? :)
