The tail end of last year was not my best. I gained. I tried denying it, but in the end, I'm up 10 lbs. It sucks, but I'm owning up to it.

How did it happen?

Too much snacking/nibbling at work combined with not being as active as I thought I was. I quit finding the motivation to get up in the morning for runs. The snacking/nibbling was the big downfall.

The good news, I stopped the upward progression at the turn of the new year.

What I'm changing:

Getting back to tracking.
Working on better control of my eating patterns. I recently changed jobs and will now be on a 2nd shift lifestyle. This will place extra importance on maintaining control over my eating patterns.
And ultimately utilizing not having to fight my sleep schedule! I naturally seem to want to sleep between the hours of 1am and 9am which will work perfectly with my new schedule.

Week 1 has gone well. Although I haven't been eating enough (:-O) over the past few days. I just haven't been that hungry which I will blame on the new schedule. I'm sure that will change as I acclimate.

So that's where I'm at. Being mindful of my diet.

I've allowed myself off a couple weeks from working out but this weekend I'm back at it.

I can get back on track.

    I'm also coming back after letting things slide, and it feels so much better to be back on track!

    Thank you! I buckled down and kicked off about 4 lbs from my recent high weight so now its just a matter of continuing to buckle down! Hope your tracking is going well and you're finding momentum too!

    Great plan! I too am back to tracking more faithfully. I also REALLY like that BodyMedia FINALLY syncs to SP, so now I have an accurate measure of my calorie burn. I always thought the SP estimates weren't very close.

    You don't fail until you don't get back up again. Keep going!!
