Has it really been a month? Have been neglecting this blog as I work to get my business up and running. It is a slow start and many things have been put on the back burner. I joined two dietbets in January and lost both. Working out has been sporadic, just when I got on a roll I got sick. Now, we are on mid winter break from school and I am finding every excuse in the book to not workout.
I have no goals this year, I am having trouble getting motivated to make a goal. I want to blame it on the weather, but honestly we have had a pretty mild winter so far. The time for blame needs to stop. A group of friends started our own version of ebates using paypal, since last time all of the winnings were ate up by fees, we decided to just toss $25 into a paypal account and divide it by the winners in 4 weeks.
I am working to find a balance in life for my diet and make things a habit. I am trying to give up counting calories, as it works, but only if I count all foods. Instead of focusing on a number I am focusing on better choices, smaller portions and filling foods.
Working out, as I mentioned is not happening. I am making a plan though and figuring out how to execute it. Baby Jillian is almost 7 months and not sleeping through the night, but she is getting pretty regular with her wake up times. I think that I need to just stay up when she wakes at 5AM after her feeding and workout. This will help me avoid making excuses later. But 5AM is so early! Clearly, I am conflicted on what I need to do here.
One thing, I know I need to do is be more accountable. Writing in this blog helps me with that. For now, my first goal is to right 3x a week. Let's see if I can do that.
