New week

Monday, November 05, 2012

Well, it's another week into my Spark experience. I've been doing this steadily since early August and I have to say, there are times when I get so tired of the routine. I am losing the weight, want to KEEP losing the weight but sometimes, I just get so tired with measuring and planning everything out in advance. I do it because I want to be successful but there are times when I think "What's the point?". I guess everybody feels that way every once in a while. This past weekend I didn't track. I didn't really eat anything I shouldn't eat...didn't even try, just didn't feel like tracking so I chose not to. That's the first time in a long time I've felt like that or even DONE that. Now I'm back on track for the week, just wish it wasn't such a chore.

Sometimes I hate thinking about what I'm going to make for dinner. And there are some days when I get home that I don't even feel like cooking. I have my son with me every other week and cooking when he's there isn't a problem but when he's at his dad's, that's another story. I hate having to deal with all of the leftovers.

I need to turn this bad attitude around and get out of my "diet funk". I'm not usually this negative but I guess everyone's entitled every now and then as long as it doesn't become a habit. It's just, how do I get out of it? What do I need to do? Any suggestions?

    First of all, I want to tell you what a special person you are. I've noticed the spark goodies you've been sending to encourage other people . . . including me.

    Secondly, I understand not logging your food. I'd been so busy during the day . . . and getting home later in the evening that when I went in after a few days to plug in my meals it was overwhelming. So I said, "What the heck!" and just let the past go and started fresh today. I decided that if it became a burden, then it would just bog me down and discourage me, making it too easy to quit. Just can't do that.

    Thirdly, meals. I was just thinking about coming up with a few simple meals to add into my Groupings. Melas that I could do easily by keeping things on hand. Then I could just come home, pick one of the groups, plug it in and go make it. Or vice versa.

    Like you said to me, "You can do it . . . I just know you can!"
