When I fall off I FALL OFF

Monday, October 31, 2011

Ugh, I fell off the wagon. I stopped exercising, eating right, checkin in on SP, all of it for the last week or two. And boy, I've gained, I'm sluggish, and I'm a little disappointed and slightly disgusted with myself.

It's my own fault. I can't blame anyone. I had the time to work out. I had the choices of what to eat. I easily talked myself into putting things to the side until hubby was home to do them with me.

I was doing it before when he wasn't doing it with me. He refuses to use SP or count calories. Thing is he flat out does not think talking to strangers is normal or a good idea. He thinks it is pointless, and that we (I) don't need to be talking to people we (I) don't know in person. It's too weird useless. At least that's the impression I get with the comments he makes when I talk about my online buddies.

Anyways my point is, I really don't need him to do this with me. I WANT him to. He's willing to work out with me, eat what I eat (though he's drinking his sweet tea, he hates splenda and other sweeteners).

So why have I been slacking? I can do this part on my own. I can work out when he doesn't feel like it, I can skip that sweet yummy goodness when he says "It's halloween I'm supposed to eat candy".

UGH. I kinda feel stupid LOL

Well, I'm back on track. I've made better choices today.

    You are so right. Your realization is valuable. You do not need him to do this!! My hubby has some healthy habits, but many that are poor. On a few things we've compromised, but I get what I need for my health and fitness. You can, too. With your realization and this great, honest blog, I see the commitment to do it. And I find my SparkFriends extremely important. It is absolutely okay that he doesn't get it. I do. Thanks for your honesty. Best wishes for that step back in line. Often the first step is the hardest.

    Glad you are back, I have been trying to get back into SP also... I have been majorly slacking! Some people just will never get the whole online community thing but most of the time they either don't know or in denial about the motivational benefit.
