Checking In, Not Out!

Friday, September 27, 2013

Just a few days from now is my original goal date, September 30th. I had set my goal weight to be at 135 lbs by that time. I am not there yet. I am still working my way through the mid 150s. But I am not giving up! I am still working at it! And I am now beginning to find a balance between fitness, grad school, and substitute teaching. It's not a perfect balance, nor is it even a good balance just yet, but it is a work in progress!

On September 30th I will reset my goals and update all my program details, that way I can get a more accurate picture of a new goal date. But in the meantime, I am a month and a half away from my one year anniversary with SparkPeople! WOOT! I wonder what I can get down to between now and then!!! That's about 7 weeks! Hmm... I think I will set a short term goal for that date when I weigh in on Sunday!

I am still working on conquering my late night snacking and my candy consumption... I have not been behaving well over the last couple of months...
The mindless snacking while studying and writing papers is one thing I did not miss and I am not happy about it reappearing in my behaviors.

But I can get through this! My will is stronger than it used to be! I can and will be a healthier, happier, and smarter version of myself, all at the same time! emoticon

And thank you so very much to my wonderful SparkFriends for checking up on me during the time that I wasn't sparking! I really appreciate it!

    I miss mindless snacking at night.... :-(
    Lol
    That said ! ......
    There are many of us who have not met the goals we've set for ourselves...believe me, you are not alone. Even though I haven't met mine, I'm just glad I'm not where I was at the beginning.
    Keep at it, be mindful and stay in the game.

    Way to go, Jules!
    "The mindless snacking while studying and writing papers is one thing I did not miss and I am not happy about it reappearing in my behaviors. "
    Have you tried keeping healthy treats on hand--fresh fruit/veggies, health bars (maybe cut into bite-size pieces so you can pretend you're eating candy : ), Veggie Straws, etc.?

    I haven't met my goal either. Close, but not there yet. However, like you, I have not gone back to my starting weight. So not giving up...just need to keep on trying with exercise, and healthier meals.

    It sounds like you're doing pretty well - congrats on all your progress so far! I'm discovering that grad school definitely takes a toll on my motivation to exercise and eat right - it's hard to find the time sometimes! emoticon

    Even if you haven't met your original goal, you're doing great. I think we've all set goals and not met them. The most important thing is to just re-evaluate and keep on trucking. It sounds like you're doing great so far. emoticon
