December was not a good month for dieting. Classes ended and since I wasn;t heading to class on Tuesdays and Thursdays anymore I didn't always head to Marie's place exercise. Exercising was sporadic at best. Eating was out of control, and not because of typical holiday binging. I just ate. Whenever and whatever I wanted. Mountain Dew entered my body more frequently than it should have. I weighed myself few times, and while I did manage to go down(I hit 206) and then back up(to the current 208) I have no idea how I possibly lost any weight.
So it is now time to get back on the wagon. And i am not doing this in any type of New Years Resolution type of way. Resolutions don't work for me. I tend to stick to them for a couple of weeks and then let them fall by the wayside. This is just a continuation of what I was doing before. A resurrection of intentions if you will.
My friend Paul sent me a great article(http://health.msn.com/dietfitness/articlepage.aspx?cp-documentid=100151729 ) and as I went through it I think this is full of good ideas. I really like how it encourages habits, but does not try and encourage you to do everything at once. The only one I don;t think I can do is the waking up the same time every day of the week, including weekends. I get up at 4:15 in the morning and I do not want to get up at 4:15 on saturdays and Sundays no matter how much weight it could help me lose. The other hard one will be eating breakfast every day, but I need to.
I am starting the accountability with this blog. I will not let it go a month again. That is a sign I wasn;t really into health and weight loss for a month. I need to be focused and I am back on the wagon. As soon as I finish this Mountain Dew in front of me.
