February Blahs

I just realized it's been a while since I checked in.  Mostly I think that's because I have been completely stagnating and have nothing to report.  I haven't gained any weight, which is the most amazing thing ever, but I also haven't made any progress.  I continue to be at a weight I don't totally hate, but that is still some hard work away from my goal weight.  I'm in that limbo time of year where summer cloths and vacations still feel far away.  Unfortunately this is exactly when I should be powering ahead to reach my goals before it's too late.
I need to find a way to help me focus even though I'm all bundled up in my winter cloths.  Some of the things that have worked in the past are; hanging pictures of the place I was going, using a chart system to earn cash for a specific goal and posting my goal weight on the wall.  In fact, I believe it was a combination of all three that helped me along when I went to Hawaii last year.  Maybe I'll give it a try, it can't possible hurt.
Last week I heard something about it being the day of the year that most people throw in the towel on their New Years resolutions and gyms everywhere become noticeably less crowded.  This is also the time of year that my mother in law insists on going somewhere sunny.  It's nice to know I'm not alone in my lethargy, but it's time to snap out of it.  Good bye February it's almost time to March ahead.
