I'm still here...2 months in

Monday, July 15, 2013

So I've made some progress and had some setbacks.

I've joined a couple of spark team challenges for the first time! I did the spark solution one, and I joined a couple of the 100 first steps challenges--they seemed less intimidating and more my speed. I've met some awesome people there too *waves to newer friends from there* emoticon

However, by poking through the forums/challenges, I end up not spending as much time looking at my "friends list" and reading all y'all's progress and events. I do find I miss that aspect. Hopefully I can balance that but not spend too much time on the computer. emoticon *waves*

I've actually had some weight gain since month 1. emoticon I'd gained about 6 pounds again just not getting into enough of a rhythm on things, and also this stupid knee injury threw off my exercise plans. But I've been working my way back. So I'm not as far down as I was 1 month ago, but I'm at least going back in the correct direction! And even with the gain, I'm noticing I'm...fitter in my clothes and stuff.

emoticon I'm much better about my water, and my fruits and veggies. It's become a habit for me to buy them and only enough of them as I will use within a week. It also helps because I know myself and my lazy ways and I buy some of the veggies prechopped! emoticon emoticon

I'm going to work more at other exercises, and not try and do so much on my legs when I do feel enough to do stuff. emoticon

I was doing so well about tracking everything and logging in every day, but I lost my streak a couple days ago when it was was a crazy weekend. But I'm starting again. emoticon

I just have to remember, I'm starting new lifetime habits and it'll take a while to retain the lessons and not backslide. emoticon emoticon

    It's not about how many times we fall down. It's about how many times we get up!

    Keep working at your pace. We've spent years developing bad habits, we can take some time to work on those good habits.

    I count any good choice as a success.
    Best wishes!
