20 days in a row.
Sunday, June 23, 2019
For some reason, this feels like a big win for me today. 20 days of logging on to SparkPeople. It doesn't represent a perfect check-in each day, or logging food, or exercising each day. Some days it was check and spin the wheel, but I was here and that feels like a big deal. I made an effort even when I didn't take the time to report much.
I set a goal of exercising each day for 10 minutes a day for 7 days. I did not reach that goal. I made it 4 out of the 7 days. Yet, because I have logged in for 20 days straight reaching the 7-day goal for exercising at least 10 minutes seems possible, more possible because I've already made it 20 days.
The 20 days doesn't represent great weight loss. I've been maintaining more than anything, but I still weigh myself. Weighing myself is revealing more about my diet and health than I realized. I have PCOS, with it an irregular cycle that is only consistent in inconsistency. It does however have a few tells and one of those tells is a certain increase in my weight. Weighing myself every day actually is alerting me to my hormonal fluctuations, which includes particular cravings. Monitoring one aspect of my weight has helped give me more insight into monitoring my food inclinations during those times.
The past 20 days have been imperfect and informative. It shows me where I really am, and I can move forward with more information about myself than before. I am approaching things differently because I am less concerned about my weight and more concerned about my health as weight relates to that. So here's to 20 days! Cheers friends!
