We’re 4 complete days into 2014 in India and here’s my #fabin14 update.
I’m still determined to make this year MY year. I can make changes in my life without disrupting my family – and I even though I’ve always known it is up to me, I have decided to live. Really, live. Enjoy my time here – make a change for me and change for others. I figure I’ll also work on my spiritual-well- being as well and have found a church nearby with an English mass.
Now to the good stuff. Quite a few of you have added me on MyfitnessPal and even better a few have made comments and have given me some encouragement. I’m working on not being defensive but knowing and acting are two different things.
So far every day I’ve been under my net-calorie goal and have got some exercise in.
I’m weighing myself but my true weigh-in will be once a week. I weigh myself daily so I can see the difference a good and a bad day immediately and adjust and take note. I know many say not to weigh yourself too often, but in speaking to people who have made life changes with their bodies it has been a matter of really tracking everything. Why track minutes, reps and calories but not see how things are going? I mean, if I do fall off one day, I know for a fact that number will go up. I know this because that was November and then a melancholy December. I didn’t weigh myself for a few weeks and then guess what… I was up 7 pounds. It is a whole lot easier to gain those pounds than lose them!
It means being honest and not hiding from the scale! Not weighing yourself doesn’t mean you didn’t gain weight, right? What you don’t know can kill you after all!
So here I am. Baked cookies, had a bit of the dough (no I don’t worry about salmonella) and will keep the cookies for the kids.
So what about you, if you’re on any goals or resolutions for 2014, how are you doing?
