Reset button... Where is the reset button?!?!?

Wednesday, May 30, 2012

So I have officially done it.... I have done what I said I wouldn't and almost completely stopped being active on SP. Thankfully it hasn't led to weight loss because I still have some valuable information knocking around in my head.
But with the wonderful streak I was on, I now cannot help but find myself drifting closer to the "give up" cycle. I cannot find the motivation to track my meals or my fitness (if I even can get myself up enough to do some).
So I figured that I would start with a blog, take a few deep breathes, and take it one thing at a time, if I have to start the SP program over, so be it. It can't hurt me, it will only help in the long run.
So starting TODAY, right here, right now.... I plan to take each day one at a time, not let myself get overwhelmed. I plan to break down my day into one hour increments in order to be less overwhelmed. I plan to make small changes that add up to a larger, better lifestyle change. I plan to focus on me and what I want, not what everyone around me wants me to, or thinks I will. I will add myself to my priorities and not let myself doubt if I can because I already have.
I didn't fall off of the wagon, I took a short me break in order to rearrange my habits and start working on a new one to change. No big deal.....
I know I can do it because I already have.....
Thanks!

    This is a great plan! It's so very important to not be overwhelmed!!

    I know there are days I only focus on being kind to myself and drinking water. For that's all I can muster.

    You definitely didn't give or even fall off the wagon. You just worked on some emotional and mental clutter that needed addressed. It's all part of the process. Be proud of yourself!

    Look back on what you have accomplished! You must have some victories to celebrate w/ the weight you have lost to date! Maybe making a list of things you want to be able to do/wear, etc when you hit goal will be inspiring. Maybe making a list of small goals...like 5lbs or even tracking for an entire week and coming up with a reward system. I always have a hard time with my long term motivation too, sometimes you just have to dig down and find something inside you to keep going. I find once I'm back on track a few days it gets easier and you get back in the groove. Just don't make the mistake I've made many times over and just turn your back and ignore...that is what has gotten me to where I am today, it's amazing what denial will do;) Good luck!!
