Not a bad first week
Monday, August 13, 2018
So, since I rejoined sparkpeople, I am down an overall 3 pounds... but I am down 1.4 pounds since becoming serious.
I have not actually started tracking food yet. I have been cutting back on portion sizes and moving more. I am doing that this week as well and then starting Monday I am back to full fledged tracking.
I have been forcing myself to go outside, even with the heat. Partly because I need to get off the couch, but mainly because I have a 2 year old who wants nothing more than to run around outside. What kind of example am I setting for him really? And I am setting him up for problems by never taking him outside. So its a win/win.
I have been thinking a lot lately. I turn to food for comfort. Im not sure why I and millions of others do. So I am working on finding a healthy alternative. Even if its just walking around in my yard to get a few minutes of peace and quiet. I have figured out that if I am not taking care of myself, I cant properly take care of my kids. They dont deserve an unhappy, grumpy mother... do they? No, they dont.
So, heres to a new me. I am determined to make it this time.
