I've been on holiday mode for weeks. In my world, holiday mode is eat a lot of crap, gain weight, get my groove back, lose the gain, rinse and repeat.
I restarted my activity challenge on my active link and I am going to change my focus away from sugar. I've been eating A TON of sugar. It's ridiculous, really.
I was thinking about doing Weight Watchers' Simple Start, so I think I will start that on Monday. Not today, because today we are having a birthday party to celebrate my son turning six! I want to relax and enjoy his party. His birthday marks the end of the holiday season for me, so I am hopeful I can get my groove back.
I'm down right at 20 lbs from last year. I need to get the scale back into a losing trend and myself back into the right mindset.
Simple goals for this week. Track all my food, have at least 3 days without added sugar and end the week without dipping into my activity points. Meet my Active Link challenge activity level every day.
I've been struggling with resentment. WHY do I have such food issues, I resent having them. I just want to be able to take or leave certain foods and that's just not me. I don't do that. EVER. That's why I am gearing up to do Simple Start. It focuses mainly on real food, with small indulgences every day. I do take some exception to what qualifies as an indulgence, but what are you going to do?
I need to start training for Fight For Air. If you feel so inclined, please feel free to support my climb. It's the toughest event I do, and it's for an important cause. Any help you can give on my fundraising efforts would be greatly appreciated.
Starting today, I will begin doing the stairs in my house 30 times per day. I'll add more next week and the week after. I suspect this will go a long way towards hitting my activity goal.
So, in summary, I am not on track right now, but am going to get back on track RIGHT NOW. Just by putting one foot in front of the other.
