Changing Focus

Saturday, December 29, 2012

It has been awhile since I have written a blog on here. A lot has been going on with me lately. I am in my last year of school. I am looking to complete my degree in health promotion by the spring of 2014. I have decided to start my own business that I hope to one day be able to work from home. Busy hours, but I know that I am just planting the seeds and I will be reaping the harvest as long as I stay focused.

With all the changes that are going on I have neglected the most important thing, losing weight. I have failed again at my attempt this year to lose weight. My biggest obstacle is myself. I always get motivated to start my plan, but somehow I come up with an excuse as to why I can't finish and give in. I know that I just need to do it, but from now on I need to do the action instead of just saying it.

Life is too short for me to miss out on enjoying it and just feeling sorry and envying those that do. It's time for me to pull up my big girl panties and just do what I need to do and not analyze it too much.

Starting tomorrow I will start my new plan to get myself fit in 2013. I have been focusing too much on losing weight, so I am keeping the focus on getting fitter instead. I have changed the background of my page to reflect the major thing that I lacked this year in my weight loss program, exercise. Now everytime that I sign on and look at my page it will be a reminder to myself that I need to make sure to do this.

I am going to work on blogging daily as this has helped me in the past to keep focused. There's something about letting others know how you are doing. Keeps me super accountable.

I am looking forward to 2013 to be the year that I change. Not only am I claiming it, I am preparing for it to be.

    Read your blog and I could have written this myself. I think that you nailed it, I focus too much on losing weight, when I don't see results on the scale because I am gaining muscle and not losing weight I get frustrated and lose my motivation. I need to focus on walking a little farther each day, or running a little faster, or drinking an extra glass of water...something besides losing weight.

    Good luck with your goals Dannielle! I can really empathize with you . . . I have stayed between 170-175 all thru 2012 and just have not been able to break thru that plateau. I have let it get me discouraged and though I have kept up my exercise and even set and achieved various exercise related goals throughout the year, I have not been diligent about tracking food as I should. I am looking forward to 2013 as a fresh start as well. emoticon emoticon emoticon
