It's time for me to recommit to myself! I've been on summer break for almost a month, and I have have lost 1 pound. My goal was to enjoy the summer, work out a lot and continue making healthy choices while eating. Well I've enjoyed my summer, and I've been working out a lot, however somehow I've lost my control and things are not going well. I'm still making healthy choices when possible, however, I've gone out to eat more, I've had more alcohol, and my diet soda intake has increased. All of his is what I can attribute my recent weight gain to.
My sister and mother, who have been great supports and are fellow sparkers, have been experiencing some of the same frustrations. After talking about our frustrations we decided to spend some time using spark, tracking and making good choices. In the meantime The scale and I are taking a break. We've been fighting a lot and I think we need a little space. So I am going to take 6 weeks to get myself back on track and then the scale and I have a date set for August 21st. I write this blog so that all my other spark friends can encourage me to get back on track. My commitment is decrease my alcohol and soda intake, and finally cook more meals at home.
I also need to set my July goal. Yes, I realize it is July 11th, however I've been working on it and I think I'll be able to make it. I've read articles about the benefits of working out in the morning, so my goal for July is to work out in the morning at least 3 times a week. Stay tuned...
