What happened to me?? I lost my motivation that was getting me through my new life situation (hubby working away from home and me being a "single mom" of three children). I was doing so good, and I remember how I was able to keep my cool during the stress...and than poof, it was all gone!
Now here I am, back up in weight, stressed out a lot, and yelling more than I should. I feel helpless and out of control of myself at times...this is not good, none of it!
What am I supposed to do? Well, for starters I can exercise again...and than change my eating habits. With those two small things I can see myself gaining control back...and the health benefits!
I need to drink my water instead of the nasty pop that I started drinking again...everybody talks about the energy they feel from water, and I always felt it too...and now its lacking with all my pop consumption. I want that energy back!
My exercise has become non-existent! This is not good at all! I owe not only a gym membership, but more than 10 exercise videos (one for every season, mood, etc), weights, bands, ball, high-speed internet with access to SP videos, heck even a treadclimber! Really, what is my excuse? Not a dang thing I guess! I can find the time, if I want to...and now I need to!
Food...how I love and hate thee...I was always the girl who could eat what she wanted, not exercise and still be thin...haha, I grew up and had kids! I can no longer be that girl, and those habits of not caring what I ate as a teen and early 20s girl need to stay in the past with the age! I NEED to pay attention to what I eat now! I can't just go grab a snack and say oh well. Not only are my bad eating habits weighing me down...literally...they are making me more tired. I am sure of this. I am not getting enough of the things I need, and too much of the things I don't. My body is mad and not functioning at the best of its ability. Very true fact and I know this as well as everyone else! (Now to do something about it than!)
Sooo...I KNOW what I need to be doing and not doing. I have the tools in front of me...WHY AM I NOT DOING IT!?!?!?!
Today is a new day...and my brain is yelling at me to change my ways...I just need to find the willpower and motivation to listen. I really plan to make changes...I got a tape measure and found out what my measurements are...ouch! I thought dealing with my weight was hard...that's the easy part to handle!
I am going to change...starting today...after a quick nap (hey I have a teething baby who has kept me awake for almost three nights straight...and she's still sleeping! I know I need sleep too, so I will take it when I can get it!)
Have a good day and MOVE your body...I will be!!

Went to the gym last night...man was it full for a Sunday...must be the after Thanksgiving crowd Got on the bike like I wanted to and did 8.5 miles in 32 minutes! I am that much closer to my goal of virtually traveling to meet my hubby! Although I must say that I am sore today because of it! I hadn't been to the gym in a while...did do DVDs here at home, but the actual gym, no.
Because I am sore today, I don't know if I will do my Firm DVD...I know I should, but I also want to avoid any major injuries that may arise from exercising while sore like I am. I also have the option of doing a walking video that wouldn't put too much strain on me...its not like I can't walk...I just doubt I would be able to do the squats, lunges, etc that the Firm would want me to do.
Today I need to go through and "visit" all of my teams...it has been awhile and I feel like I have abandoned them. I know that I need the family time and such away from the computer, but I also love the feeling of having others who share the same goals (and are older than 11, 3 and 6m).
Its a new week, so that means I need to work on my goals...didn't do so hot last week, so I am going to try some again.
~ Again, track my water...didn't do that last week, although I did drink it everyday!
~ Exercise at least 5 times in the next 7 days...I would love to work on everyday, but I don't want to push myself to get hurt and I need to give myself reasonable goals.
~ Log 10 miles in my virtual trip...I did 8.5 last week, and until I get to 10 I will keep having this as a goal, maybe even after I get to 10 (I consider my week from M-Sun)
~ Visit with my teams, one team everyday at a minimum.
Now for my virtual walk/travel (since I am biking some too):
I started at 646.4 miles to go, now after my 8.5 yesterday I am at 633.4 miles. 13 miles down!! I am happy and proud of myself! I can do this!
So here we go with a new week and a new chance to reach our goals! It is possible!!
