Almost the New Year
Monday, December 27, 2010
I've been slowly getting back into the Spark routine, with the idea that come January 1st I will be 100% committed. I've been lazy about logging my food the past couple weeks, but I have logged it 4-5 times a week...which is a lot more than I've done in the past year.
There were a couple of days where I would sneak back into the kitchen after dinner to grab a snack thinking "I won't log this, I don't want to know how much I'm really eating." But there was a voice in the back of my head that just said "accountability." Thus, "accountability" will be my new mantra for 2011.
This past year has brought a new set of problems that I never in a million years thought I would have to deal with. Watching my family being torn apart by lies and secrecy has been difficult, but I'm lucky that I have had school to keep me busy and focused. I've realized that most of my past problems with food have come from being bored and depressed...with law school, I don't have time to be either. Since I've started school, I've lost 9+ pounds without much difficulty, due to my schedule. But I'm still unhappy with my body. My eating is under control but I desperately want to be fit. I'm giving myself a break this week (workout wise) to begin mentally preparing for my 2011 journey.
I'm ready to hold myself accountable
