It's not quite the same, but that's ok!
Tuesday, October 10, 2017
I've been back on Spark for a week now. I really, really want to check the scale...but I don't, too. I can't help but compare my experience this time around to my initial one. I can't get to the gym every day as I did before, and I'm not as strict about food as I was before, either. I'm still doing really well, tracking my calories and staying within my limits most days, and I get to the gym 3-4 days a week.
So no, it's not the same. And in a way it surprises me how okay I am with that!
I am aware of my life now and that it is different than before, with no child or schedule restrictions. I am happy that I am focusing on doing my best and making good choices as much as I can. There are some days where I slip a little, but overall I am still eating better than I was before, and that is a very good thing. There are some days where I need to take advantage of the best options in front of me, because I can't plan for everything the way I might like. It's about forming good habits and being a better me.
And while this may take me longer, I think this plan works better for me now, with the life I have. I feel confident I will get there!
