The Trouble with Starting

Sunday, January 20, 2013

I have the greatest of intentions. I started yesterday by tracking my food and exercise, and by starting here on Sparkpeople. I plan, I read, I INTEND, and I fail. I often read how people have tried many diets and lost weight and then gained it back. Well, my trouble is starting it in the first place. I over-ate today by a lot. Nothing I ate was unhealthy, but the sheer volume of food was way too much. And here I am laying in bed at 9 pm, stuffed, STUFFED, and not feeling very proud of myself. My inlaws are here so there's lots of restaurants, but it's not just now... it started before the holidays, then there were of course the holiday, then my husband's birthday, then a visit from his friend, then the inlaws. And boy do we eat. So, I shall try not to kick myself too hard but simply make note that I didn't do well today, and that tomorrow is another day and I will start fresh. I will hopefully do some stretches before I go to sleep at least... when my stomach feels a little less full.

So, for Sunday the 20th:
Yogurt and gluten free granola
Soup for lunch
A very light dinner
Go to bed a little hungry
Skin brush
Start with 5 lb dumbells
And enter what I did. This may be key.
...that I write here each and every day, no matter what.
