Resetting and recommitting!

Monday, October 29, 2018

I've been on Sparkpeople for a few years off and on and it helped me lose 55 lbs. I've kept most of that weight off, but see the pounds creeping back and after an amazing European trip to Rome, Tuscany and Paris in September which included a 6 day cooking class and tour, its time to regain my focus.

Our base in Tuscany was Montefollonico, a quaint Tuscan town where we enjoyed 6 days of cooking, touring and fun with Cook in Tuscany owners Linda, George and Whitney. Our group consisted of 6 Canadians and 6 Americans staying in a Villa in the Tuscan countryside. So much fun!
So even though I hit my 10,000 step fitbit goal every day, especially in Paris where I swear we walked the whole city, since I've been back I've been a bit of a slug.
I still love my Beachbody programs so I'm starting LIIFT4 today, cleaned up my Sparkpeople page, decided to start blogging and have already tracked my food for 6 days.
The one thing I haven't done is stepped on the scale in a couple of weeks. emoticon Wish me luck!

    It all begins someplace and you just started there. Sp is the way to do it.

    We want to remember it took us a few years to put our weight on and it comes off a little at a time, just like it went on. People get frustrated with it not coming off faster than we put it on. But with consistent focus on doing what we are told on SP we will hit our objective. Like many things it just wont get there overnight.

    Make sure you make one of your most focused goals you water intake. Myself, when I hit plateaus its because I am not doing the water correct. I found using a reminder on my phone to be very helpful in making sure I keep on track with the water
