Ok, So today is day two of a significant effort to get my s@#% together. No more no more. I am trying to keep logging onto spark a regular thing. It is difficult sometimes, but I find the earning points to be fun and rewarding, so it has been driving me. Haha, I know, only two days...but I feel it is the beginning of something good for me. I am feeling good. I have brought my lunch to work for about a week total now, I have been drinking way more water, and I am tracking all of my food. Even though this week is super hectic for me, I want to start doing some different exercise during the week. I have roller blades, but I am so self conscious of going out rollerblading even on my own street! I am going to have to figure something out. I also want to start walking at the beach, it is about 40 minutes from my house, but even if I can do it once a week I would be happy. My good friend(who happened to get me on spark in the first place) lives close to the beach, and we have a hard time getting together because she does live a little out of the way, but I could incorporate that into my walk at the beach. I think blogging everyday is going to help me too. Even if no one reads this, it is helping me stay accountable. It kind of feels good to type it all out, Reaffirming. I can not wait until thursday. I have a short week this week because I am going up north for a long weekend for an event. It will be a lot of fun. Definitely going to bring a notebook to track my food. Could be scary. Going to have to keep myself in check with beer and good food everywhere. Need to keep the fat in check, ya know? It will be nice to be outside all weekend and in the fresh air. CAN"T WAIT! Here I am debating whether or not I want to go get an ice cream on my lunch. Aye. I still haven't broken myself of this. Hey, I forgot, it's only my second day. I am making changes. It will happen. This week is weird. Am I talking myself into an ice cream? I think so. How about a small frozen yogurt? Satisfy the sweet tooth and not kill my calories for the day. Maybe I should try to talk myself out of it...probably. Mindset is; a moment on the lips, a lifetime on the hips.. Weird, an exboyfriend used to say that to himself all the time. I thought it was odd. Ok, screw ice cream. I have creamsicles at home, I can have one later if I eat a healthy dinner and exercise. Better idea! Now that I have just walked you through my thought process, I am going to sign off, Happy first day of Summer Sparkers!
