Reason #1 of why I need to join the Summer 5% team!
Because I log in to SparkPeople every day it is easy for me to look back and see why my energy is down and my weight is up!
It started in April, we just moved and the problems of selling the farm we were leaving became insurmountable because of the Covid-19 shutdown.
Just getting “a person” instead of endless recordings to get electric, water, Internet, insurance and an assortment of other accounts for an address change took hours.
Many days my Spark pages have nutrition and fitness trackers blank.
Then May and the disappointment of cancelling my usual traveling plans to celebrate my birthday. Also cancelled were all the big family get-togethers.
Again as I look back there are some days not filled in and some that are filled in with too many calories and almost no exercise.
June is here, some of life is back to normal but my current trend did not change. And so this morning I can look back and know that my weight today is the same as it was on January 1!
I can also admit that these are excuses, maybe reasonable, but excuses don’t change anything.
Thank goodness I’ve signed up for the Summer 5% challenge and with the team encouragement I will get back on a plan of healthy living.
