No big resolutions just very small goals!

Friday, January 04, 2013

I look at myself in the mirror and I see all the weight i have lost put back on lost and then added on and then some!
I get so motivated every year! i set these huge resolutions i am going to lose 50 pounds this year! Well this year I am not doing it!

I started yesterday drinking my water 8 to 10 glasses a day I have set that as a small goal keep it up for a month!
I have started logging in my food to become more aware of my calories and portions, and i am setting a small goal of 10 pounds!
My scale is not working so I need to go out and get one and I am scared to even see how much weight I have gained back! but that is ok!
I am focusing on small goals not the big number!
I get so sparked up so fast but somehow my spark always goes out and I think its because when i see how far I have to go i don't see how far I have come! I give up and grab the cookies, chips, and candy My husband keeps for himself in the cupboard! I have asked him not to bring those things into the home but he feels since he does not have a problem with himself then I should have self control!
Well I will have it if I focus on my little goals!
1. getting up and moving at least 10 minutes a day! I will do more as my body gets used to it.
2. drinking my water,
3. logging in my food, and being aware of what i am putting in my mouth!
I can do these small things and once I weigh myself I will know where I am at and make sure I reach my first larger goal of losing 10 pounds!

    Good for you! It is never too late to get back on track. Living a healthy lifestyle is about daily decisions of what you are going to do - eat a healthy balanced diet, forgo that cookie and eat a piece of fruit. And if you do slip, just pick yourself up again and keep going. Baby steps are what make it work. You can do it. Keep measuring and weighing and making good decisions. Love yourself enough to make it work! Take care and know there are always folks here at SparkPeople who know what it is like and are here to help you stay on track! emoticon
