7/24. Another starting over post

Monday, July 24, 2017

Yep I'm starting over again. I can't seem to find my stride. And I keep falling off track. Life gets busy and I slack off. That is something I cannot do. I'm finding as I'm getting older it gets harder and harder to stay focused on the task of getting my weight back down to something healthy for me. So I'm going to try again. Today I got up and right into exercising. Because of rain I chose to spin so I wouldn't skip my cardio. I also joined a couple small challenges. For example 30 days to firmer arms and butt. Lol. I figure if it is printed out and the first thing I see in the morning I can just get it done and continue my day. Because it seems to me when I put things off I tend to get busy and then I don't get it done. Doing it right in the morning first thing I have a better chance at it. I'm going to set myself up to win not to fail. I'm also going to take pictures along my way. Pictures of my meals pictures of what I'm doing and that way I can go back and see for myself exactly what I'm doing. And I do realize it's pretty easy to just not take a picture of something bad that you're doing. But I'm really going to try to hold myself accountable. And for now I think this is the way to do it. One day at a time this is my plan for the moment I have a wedding coming up in September and I'd really like to be down a few pounds so that's my goal. I'm not going to go crazy I'm not going to be unrealistic. I just want to have these things out in the open where I can keep my focus strong and keep my will power stronger. I know I can do this. I have done it before. I've just got to keep my mind set at the task. So thank you in advance for the support I realize I'm not going to be able to blog daily. It's just not an option with my schedule. But I will try to keep up at least once a week. Or any chance I can actually get on the computer. I do seem to do better when I can blog more often. But again I realize time and availability of getting to a computer it's not always an option. And there's no reason for me to beat myself up about not being able to get to the computer to do the blog. Or using it as an excuse to fall off the wagon. Which is something I have done in the past. Oh I didn't log today I can go have ice cream. That is not acceptable this time around. I need to stay focused and stay on track. I'm really going to try hard to keep my focus. I know I can do this. I just need to take one day at a time. The future is in my hands. And it truly does not need to be in my stomach. Day 1. Stay positive and focused on the goal. Make today count. Thank you.

    You know, as I was reading your blog I was thinking how you mentioned "willpower" and you never mentioned about figuring out what really was the reason why you can't get healthy. Maybe, it has nothing to do with Willpower, or less calories or moving more. Maybe, it has EVERYTHING to do with you lifestyle. If you want to be that 5% of successful Sparkees, you must change your lifestyle. That is everything about yourself. Get rid of drama in your life, toxic people, resentments, and figure out how to deal with emotional turmoil without stuffing yourself with food. Make amends to people that you treated poorly, clean up your home and de-clutter and organize and then, just then, lowering calories and moving more might just work. Best of luck!

    You can do this! One day at a time, if you accidentally fall off the wagon, remember it's only one day. You can become more disciplinedetails tomorrow 😎
