Taking it one day at a time
Wednesday, May 22, 2013
I decided to come back to Spark People this week. I am going to use the spark coach and I really like it so far. It gives me something to follow and not just random browsing. I know that keeping track of all my food and fitness will be the key. I have been extremely resistant in the past because I didn't want to be accountable to myself for eating junk. Now I am going to be accepting of what the day holds and focus on the small goals and just showing up everyday. I know that over time I will get better and better at saying no to sweets and etc... I just need to try.
I joined the gym today... I am very happy about that. It is closer to my house that the other gym I used to belong to so I know I will be more likely to go. It is just one stop closer to my goals. Something tangible that I can feel. More importantly, I NEED to workout so that I can keep in shape for my job. There is nothing more motivating than being forced to do physical work when you are out of shape.... realizing that I am the one who can control the pain in my body by just putting forth some effort.
I also ate some junk food tonight... I know that I didn't preplan my meal for tonight and it was just so easy to eat what everyone else was having... I need to learn from this. I did only eat a small amount of "the crappy food." So that is at least a compromise.... it is what it is.
I feel overall good about my day.
I feel really good about the choices I have made this week for myself... I know that I will reap the benefits of the this weeks work for the rest of my life.
