Really!??

So, I HATE New year resolutions, and did not make one this year in regards to weight or anything else really on purpose. I do want to strive to be healthier, physically, spiritually, and emotionally, but I will not make some silly "promise" to myself I know I wont follow through with...lol.  I mean let's be realistic, how often have I ever followed through with it before?....

Anyway, back to my point...

So I stepped on my Wii fit board yesterday, in order to assess the damage done by holiday's etc....Oh I wish I had NOT done that!! 10+ lbs! ?? really!!???

Defeat set in in....and I just felt like eating a HUGE bowl of ice cream and saying screw it!!!.....But, then I realized, I needed to DO something about this. It was not just holiday over indulgence... no this has been creeping up on me the last few months. I blame most of it on TTC and the hormones from the femara and clomid, BUT I also just "let go" and ate myself into oblivion in order to ease the disappointment from another failed cycle or, another miscarriage. I let me emotions rule my decision making and it has obviously not ended well.
so WHAT was I going to do?? fad diets, and cabbage soup crap has done NOTHING for me, neither now nor in the past. Fatkins did nothing but make my poop like oil...and I turned into a "no carb monster" on the south beach...

I decided to start out small and slow. I will track my food, just to see what my intake it looks like as far as calories, and then do small 20 mins yoga/pilaties sets 4 times a week. This could easily just flow like all the rest of the times I tried to do "slow and simple", BUT I added in the dynamic of peer accountability to the mix. By sharing my goals with a few ladies, It gives you a boost to actually DO what you SAY you are going to do. Then add in convenient and easy...There is a plan I can stick to.

I found this APP on my android phone, called "myfitnesspal.com" and added it. I found a way to track all my food intake,l and exercise in one easy place. Not only can I log in what I eat with a simple bar code scanner, but I can also track my fitness, and interact with friends. You can add your friends, and stay connected on my fitness pal, and view one another's diaries, and food logs. This helps you stay accountable each day, and gives some motivation, knowing some friends are in the same boat, and may be struggling like you... encouraging one another in this, is KEY to success. anyway....
