starting over

Sunday, August 31, 2014

I just held my breath, took the plunge and reset my spark account.

I decided there were too many failed attempts at losing and keeping the weight off. I know it and have learned from my mistakes/bad habits, and I don't need a constant reminder. Time to look forward and move on....... Onwards and upwa... um... downwards from now on

I can only reach my goals if I stay in calorie range every week, and cut down on junk. I am going to weigh every day for a while to try and motivate me to not make bad choices in the evening, and to not make bad choices at other times "between" weigh-ins. I will track nearly everyday but will eat freely (but not mindlessly) and not track at special times like birthdays, christmas.

This helped re-motivate me yesterday

I am going to allow 15 mins a day for Spark (which is a lot more than the 2 or 3 mins I spend spinning the wheel and logging my food). I'm going to walk or cycle the first part of my commute (40 mins walk) whenever I have the time and the weather is not too inclement. I'm going to be more active at home after work. At least 20 mins a day more keeping on top of housework. Together it should keep me a bit more focused and a bit more active

Hope I've not made the wrong decision to reset... but time for a new start. I have a fitbit, I have a new Aria scale, I have spark tracking tools, I have knowledge of what I need to do and not do. So, hopefully this is the last time I get back on that wagon and finally get to the end of my journey with this weight stuff.

    I think if the reset helps you mentally to see this as a fresh start it is an awesome decision!
