Motivation

Thursday, September 04, 2008

I really haven't been motivated to track my food or exercise lately. I know that I tend to be that way... all gung ho one day and then forget about doing it for a while, sometimes one day, other times it seems like weeks go by. I am trying to do better, but sometimes it just doesn't seem all important, ya know. I haven't exercised since last Wednesday, 8 days ago! I have taken a few walks downtown, but nothing really strenuous or anything like that, although today I power walked, if that's what you call it.... walking fast and getting my heart going, but it was still only for half an hour, ad about 8 city blocks, in a round trip (I had to go pay my rent and the office is 4 blocks away from me). How far is a mile, in blocks? I could walk to Curves, as it is only about 8 blocks away, then work out and walk back. "Could" is the operative word there. I am usually so beat after working out at Curves to want to walk home too so I haven't forged that yet.

OK, so I need to do better... and I will try this week to get more walking in and get to Curves at least 3X.

    I am just as bad there are more excuses not to exercise than there are to exercise for me we have to encourage each other to get our rears in gear and get with the programme

I'm a LOSER!

Monday, August 25, 2008

Yep, I said it! I am a loser. I lost SEVEN more pounds and I couldn't be happier! I also lost 8.5 inches in the past month. I have one pair of shorts that used to be too tight on my that are loose. Woohoo!

This is the first day...

Saturday, August 23, 2008

...of the rest of my life. And I am going to do something about it. I am going to et up, get on my feet, take a walk, work out at Curves, make a decision to make myself a better me!

I have to admit that the past few days I have been highly stressed out, panicky even. I have no idea what I should do, if I should keep this meaasly little job that I was offereed and that I am unhappy with,a dn sorry I agreed to it, or if I should quit before they spend any more time and money into my training. I like the extra cash I could get from it, but my disability is enough. My son has made that clear to me...I do not have to work. Period. I just know that our finances are suffering right now and I have always prided myself on being able to support my family. I have been on disability for 5 yrs now and it hurts me deep inside, every day, when I realize that we are in debt all the time and there doesn't seem to be any way out.

    You've made a lot of good decisions. This one may take a little more time. You can do it. Don't stress. Give yourself the time you need to make the right choice. emoticon Shirley
