If at first you don't succeed...

Friday, August 19, 2011

I have been away for a while. I haven't been logging on or tracking my food or fitness this summer. I have regained 15 of the 70 pounds I had lost in the last year. It is frustrating, but it is what it is. I know what I did (or mostly what I didn't do) to get where I am, and I know what I need to do to get where I want to be. SP has given me the tools, so I am trying to regather the willpower. I have been back for less than a week and have shed two of the 15 pounds, so that is encouraging progress. I realize that I have been letting life get in the way, and that has to change. I wonder how other people find time and energy for all of it. If anyone has a tip that could be helpful, please let me know. I need and want to get to my goal weight. I want to be healthier, for myself and for my family. I want to feel better about myself and I want it to show on the outside too.

    You can do this! I recently became a Beachbody Coach and that for me helps alot to keep myself motivated because its my job to motivate others to make healthier choices in their lives. Take it one day at a time...

    I totally did the same-ish thing last week and most of this week. Yesterday I found myself visiting Hogwarts through The Challenge of Harry Potter. Actually posted a new topic thread this morning about the looking for new exercises.

    I found my inspiration on another thread about Patronuses. After thinking about it, I said my patronus would probably be a boxer because I love to play. If I can tell myself that I'm playing every time I'm working out, it might be easier.

    Take a step back to the SparkPeople fast goals...work on your water and fruits and veggies intake again. Even if you're already hitting the goals every day, focusing on something that simple could help.

    I'm here cheering you on. Good Luck!

    IT'S ALL IN THE CHANGES AND APPLYING COMMITMENT, CONSISTENCY AND CONTROL.
    YOU WANT IT BAD ENOUGH YOU WILL DO WHATEVER IT TAKES. YOU'LL MAKE THE TIME FOR EXERCISE. YOU'LL MAKE THE NECESSARY CHANGES IN DIET AND LIFESTYLE AND YOU'LL STICK WITH IT.
    SURE YOU'LL SLIP AND SLIDE THROUGHOUT BUT WE'RE ALL HUMAN AND WE ALL SUCCUM TO TEMPTATION
    SO WHAT I DO TO STAY IN CONTROL IS TO STAY ON TRACK SIX DAYS AWEEK EATING AT THE LOWEST END OF MY CALORIES AND THEN THAT SEVENTH DAY I ALLOW MYSELF TO EAT AT THE HIGHER END OF MY CALORIES AND HAVE MY "TREATS" WITHIN REASON. THERE IS NO BINGING OR OVER EATING. AND THEN DAY ONE AGAIN IT'S RIGHT BACK TO THE PROGRAM. IT'S NOT REALLY A CHEAT DAY THOUGH TYPICALLY ALL I DO IS ALLOW MYSELF THAT DESSERT OF MY CHOICE.

    We all gor thru this at some point... I have done it twice... The good news is that you can always start back on the right foot and motivate yourself or find someone else to help you... There's always someone that is in the same boat as you and would like the partnership as well...
