I feel like I have been so absent from Spark! I have been logging my food (sort of) but I really haven't been interacting much on the social aspect. I need to get back to it. I feel so much better, and I am so much more focused when I am on Spark.

I confirmed my tattoo appointment today. I am set for 11/19. I am getting one of my older ones fixed up, and getting a new one. I have scheduled a week off from the gym for healing, but I have a feeling that I will still be going. I may not do PC Fit, but I think I will continue with X-Bike?

I had a "bad" food weekend. I ate a bunch of junk, but when I got on the scale today, it said 123.6 which is pretty much a normal, every day weight for me.

The important thing is to put it behind me and make smart choices from here on out. I am over my calories today because I had to have Starbucks and McDonalds Iced coffee... not good because not only did I waste calories, I also wasted $. On Monday I do stop after PC Fit and get a skinny mocha from Starbucks. I get a venti Skinny Iced Mocha, extra espresso and half the flavor pumps. I figure I am saving calories by getting half flavor? Anyway, I don't know what I was thinking, but nothing I can really do about it now. It is done.

I went to PC Fit and had a really awesome workout. I signed up for X-Bike at 6 am - so I am excited for that. I think I am going to wear my HRM and see what my calorie burn is. I am curious. The only problem is... what if it isn't as high as I think it should be? Then what? Well then I guess it will put things even more into perspective for me. I mean, lets say I burn 200 calories at class. Knowing what I put myself through in that class, it isn't going to seem worth it then to eat that junk? That is what I am hoping for anyway. Of course, it could also work in reverse too - who knows.

Anyway here is what I have come up with

1. Back to the grind as of right now. I will finish my day healthy and strong. I will continue with my planned snacks and food, and I will end the day at X-Bike.

2. I will continue my streak of good choices tomorrow and the rest of the week.

3. I will continue with a positive attitude

4. I will be on Spark, every day, interacting with my teams and the general Spark population in order to help keep on track.

5. I will remember where I have came from, and I will be determined not to go back to that place.

I think that is all for now

    I have been faced with old thinking patterns and eating loads of CANDY (Of all things?). I
    You are right, it is scary, and going back is not an option.
    Thank Goodness for Sparks, right?

    The important thing is that you're still focused on your goals and health. They can't all be perfect days, just don't ever give up.

    You've got a good plan, and it's not too complicated. I find the support here at Spark People makes all the difference, so far any time i'm feeling a little down I've been able to get on here and fin something to cheer me up right away.

    Keep up the good work! emoticon
