Falling off the wagon?

Sunday, July 07, 2013

A week from yesterday I joined SparkPeople in the hopes that I would be more motivated to work out AND eat better at the same time. So far, not so good... and maybe it's partially because I started on a weekend which happened to be right before the 4th of July which was followed by another weekend, but then I'm just making excuses for myself, aren't I? I knew this would be a difficult journey, but I didn't think I was going to struggle so much in the beginning. When my routine is the same every day, it's easy to stay on track. However, summer makes things so difficult because there is so much free time and unscheduled time and work is more random than a consistent school schedule. As much as I hate admitting it, I'm ready for some consistency and that is consistent(ly boring, haha).

Right now I just need to stay focused and get through this week on campus with my students. Then next week I get to go on vacation in the mountains! Gatlinburg, Tennessee is going to be an awesome place to hike and explore and not focus so much on food and things like that. I'm definitely doing better with drinking water... so maybe baby steps? I get so frustrated so easily, like how I only lost 0.4 of a pound. I know that's my own fault for eating junk but it's still disappointing. Guess I will just keep on keeping on though.

Mom and I are going to the store for groceries. Here's to hoping I can make some good choices to kick off this crazy week!

    We gotta start somewhere, and I'm sitting here trying to find a reason not to go ride my bike. It's too hot!

    Congratulations for staying here first of all it does work. Drinking water is a huge step for most people so great job! Plus .4 lbs is nothing to sneeze at. My goal is 1/2 lb per week and I am super happy with that amount! So don't be critical of your beginning just continue to work on it! emoticon
