Here I Go

One more time...

It seems like I am always starting over. Not over from the beginning this time, but getting back on track. This past week has not been good. I made attempts, but by the end of the day I had failed again. I worked out a few times, but most days I just climbed back into bed. I packed my lunch and snacks, but over ate when I came home. I gained two pounds this week. I was so frustrated yesterday that I ate a grilled cheese and french fries for lunch, cake at my sister's birthday party and I didn't work out. Yeah, that will help. emoticon

Today is a new day and the start of a new week. At first it started out the same. I slept until 7:00 and then sat with my cat on my lap and drank coffee for an hour. But when my daughter got up, we did Cize. This put me back where I need to be. I ate a high protein breakfast and in about 30 minutes I am going to go for a run. Later today I am going to meal prep for the week, do homework and then eat a healthy dinner. I have a plan for this week, but my schedule will be tight. This has been part of the reason I have failed so many times. However, I need to pull myself out of this funk and work harder to reach my goals. I know that I will feel better once I start to succeed.

Because of set backs and not working as hard as I needed to, I am still 6 pounds away from my goal for this month. It is frustrating, but I know that I can come close to making my goal if I work hard. So here I go one more time. I am starting over with a renewed determination, an improved plan and a small goal to reach.

    Wow, sounds like you ARE really busy! School, work, kids, etc.
    One of the things I read on spark was not to let pounds be the only goal, but that changing the underlying habits is key, and deserves rewards, because the pounds will be in fits and starts.
    Sometimes the scale doesn't move for whatever reason (you are converting losing fat pounds but gaining muscle pounds, metabolism, hormones, water retention, etc.)

    ALSO - pat yourself on the back for NOT giving up. I lost and went away and regained and came back too. Now I realize I will be on spark for life, at least tracking food. That's okay, and good. There are lots of folks who are doing maintenance and still working their programs because they need to.I will be one of them!

    The insanity? Doing the same thing over and over and expecting the same results...Obviously making food choices hasn't helped you in the past. So what about changing your lifestyle? How do you deal with emotions? Do you have resentments? Do you need to make amends? Is your home a cluttered mess? Do you walk or move every single day? Are your friends supportive? Have you decided to change the whole you instead of just the food issue? This is how you can be one of the 5% successful person if you realize it takes a lot more work than what you put in your mouth.
