Today, I changed my ticker to show that I have gained weight. I have been avoiding this, as I have gained weight. I keep ending up back in the starting blocks. But the main thing is, I am down 3 pounds from last week, when I was too upset with how I ended up at 180 again.
I am going to track food, exercise daily, which I have been pretty good at. But this round, I am using a food tracker, and fitness tracker. It's a spiral notebook, that I will carry with me and record in.
I am excited because the weather is warming up, so I will be out on my bike soon.
I did something goofy last week, running the final lap around the track at school. I knew better, as in the end, (the next morning), I had a sore ankle, right where I broke my leg, and my hip was sore, right where I have the bursitis.
Now I knew better. I just see everyone writing about jogging, and running, and so I have been steadily increasing my fitness, and just wanted to run.
Well, I learned my lesson on running for the last time. If I can walk 500Km across Spain on Camino, I certainly DON'T need to run!
OK, lesson learned.
Now, MORE IMPORTANT THAN RUNNING, I am going to make weight loss goals happen, and stop making excuses, or letting days pass, without leaving the house with planned lunches.
I am going to stack my fridge, and plan my meals for the week, the way Bookworm27 and FitWit have shown us all how to do. To plan for success.
I am going to follow what others here are doing for success that is working.
Eat Less, and Move More.
Happy Mother's Day to the Mom' s out Sparking

    Spring is supposed to be this great weight loss time, but I find that I usually gain some at the beginning of it! I think it's our "monkey brains" believing against all actual evidence that we must have been starving for months and now is the time to build back up our strength. But we can fight back!!!
