Still trying...

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results. I lost weight, but because I was strength training, I looked better than ever. From January 2013 until June 2013, I was absolutely rocking the healthy lifestyle. I ate healthy.

I've been an on-again-off-again Sparkpeople user for years, and for a while, I felt like "I finally got it!" I started exercising regularly in Spring of 2012. I slowly started adjusting my eating habits and increased my workouts. In Fall 2012, I started seeing some serious results. I lost weight, but because I was strength training, I looked better than ever. From January 2013 until June 2013, I was absolutely rocking the healthy lifestyle. I ate healthy. I worked out twice a week (minimum). I had lost some weight, getting down to about 160 pounds, with a good bit of muscle. By my sister's wedding in June, I was feeling pretty confident. I even felt comfortable enough to wear a bikini at a pre-wedding pool party. But then, life got sort of busy... my workout buddy got engaged and stopped finding the time to work out and before too long, I just stopped going altogether. I still made healthy choices, most of the time. But I wasn't exercising anymore. And it showed. I started putting on some weight again (and not muscle, this time). My weight crept up to about 170. Then I met my boyfriend... we enjoyed going out together, introducing each other to our favorite restaurants (and their usually high calorie specialties), and drinking beer/wine. The unfortunate thing is that meant I put on a little more weight. Now I weigh in at about 180 pounds. And I am not happy about that. I need to get back into gear, so here I am.

I don't know either! On one hand I think a workout would only fire me up more! But maybe not! At any rate...I should do SOMETHING to tire me so I don't stay in the "waking up lets get this day rolling" mode!!! :P So I think I will do a fast walk around the block and maybe fold laundry or something! :) thanks for the advice! Hope you have a great eve & good night sleep!!! :) emoticon

Aw, thanks for checking in! I've been battlign some chronic fatigue, but felt a perk of energy...or was a bit easier getting up this morning. Always a reminder to be more careful about what I eat...so last night I was juicing veggies and today been trying to get more veggies in....just one little sweet snack after lunch so I don't go crazy. ha. :D But it is nice to feel somewhat better today, and to be able to have enjoyed work without feeling exhausted before I started! how are YOU doing? did you have a nice weekend? Hope you are having a great day! emoticon emoticon emoticon
