New Day

OK, I hope that this weekend was a wake up call. I realized that none of my clothes are fitting lately. Hmm. Maybe since I haven’t made time for exercise and don’t pay attention to what or how much I eat has something to do with that. Interesting concept. And I’m willing to bet that my inconsistent and wacky sleep habits contribute as well.

So the plan is to go back to counting my calories and logging my activities. This seems to be the only thing that has worked for me. The problem is actually keeping up with this process. I hope to make the effort to accomplish this. Anyone want to help hold me accountable?

I'm in. I actually had a group of friends decide on Saturday that we would all committ (sp?) to rejoin Weight Watchers. We all agreed it's the only thing that really, really works. And I think it's because it's basically counting calories and logging activities!

Something that used to help me as well was that I would print a calendar of each month just to write my workouts on, and for each one I actually did, I gave myself a sticker, so I was motivated to do more, because you only get so many chances in a given month, and each day you don't do something is a day you can't get a sticker for. Yes, I am a 6-year-old trapped in a grown woman's body.

I'll help hold you accountable if you help me! 2006 was a baaaaaaaaaaddd year for me as far as exercising and eating habits. 2007 has got to improve!

Joy -- I totally need to start some sort of routine too! I was looking at pictures of myself in 2003/2004 and I am disgusted now how I have let myself become overweight again! Ugh... I keep starting to eat better, and then mess it up. No more mess up days! We should motivate each other!
