Getting back on track.

Monday, August 06, 2012

Since the beginning of May (when I injured my foot), I've let myself get off track. I haven't been consistent with food or exercising. On the plus side, I haven't gained any weight, but I feel like I probably have lost some muscle. I just realized a few minutes ago that our planned vacation is just 10 weeks away so I'm going to use that as my motivation to get myself back on track. I had a goal weight originally in mind for my trip, but since I haven't been on track and been losing anything, it's probably slightly unattainable right now. I know, I know, positive thoughts, but I also want to be realistic. At this point, I'm really just hoping to see any drop in weight. It's been so long since I've seen the numbers go down.

I need to come up with some goals and really stick to them. One goal I had set a while back was to work out 1,000 minutes each month. For the past few months I haven't succeeded in reaching that goal. This month I am changing that! I'm also going to start tracking my food again. I have a hard time consistently doing this, but I want to keep trying. Every time I miss a meal or a day, I end up giving up. I need to realize that I'm not going to track 100% of everything I eat and just do as much as possible. Tracking my food definitely keeps me more accountable and I know it makes a difference. I'll need to think of some more goals.

    sorry, just me again, I read a good quote this weekend. What would happen if you talked to your husband/daughter/son/co-worker the way you talk to yourself? Would you tell your daughter that she was worthless, not able to reach her goal, would you chastise her for making a bad decision? You need to treat yourself like you treat others! A bit of an eye opener!

    great goals and the vacation is a great motivator! Start the positive talk in your head and get rid of that negative guy and you are well on your way!
