Today's Kick in the Butt

Wednesday, July 04, 2012

I really have no motivation today. I just blogged about Tammy/Terry again. They are weighing heavily on my heart and my mind today. It's been a full week since I heard from Terry, longer for Tammy. But this is all for another blog.

Right now, I need to find my motivation to get dressed and get out there and run. Yesterday I was 2minutes short of completing C25K Week2Day3. Today is the day to do this. It's early enough that the heat of the day hasn't hit.



I want a fit, healthy body. I need to go after it. What I've been doing hasn't gotten me there. I know the scale is not moving right now. I'm not sure why, and yes, it's frustrating.

But I went through this last year. Eventually I gave up out of frustration. Here I am a year later and still at the same weight, and in even worse shape than I was then.

Time to do something different.



Honestly, I will thank myself for pushing and getting out there. I won't thank myself for letting me wallow in these issues all day and letting this time pass me by.



I am trying so hard to not give up. I don't understand why I'm stuck like this. I know emotional crap can sometimes block my ability to loose weight. I've been trying to deal with it, but it's not working. I'm still not loosing weight.

Oh wow. I just had a thought, and I'm not sure if I'm excited about it, or upset. I need to put it out of my thoughts and focus on what I need to do for me. To hell with doing for everyone else around me. Time to do for me.

Time for me to go have breakfast, then get dressed and go running. I will be able to sort out some of these thoughts on the road. I know I will .

*****UPDATE************
I got dressed, and went out to run. I didn't even make it half way, and stopped. I just had too much on my mind. So instead I walked home. Just thought about all this crap rolling around in my head.

It's better now. I may get dressed and try again later today after the heat passes. Or I might just make it an easy day today. Either way, I'm okay with it.

Challenge to do 3 Sets per Day - Day 1 - July 3

Tuesday, July 03, 2012



This morning, after my run, I made it through the first three. That's as far as I've made it so far. I guess I have a long way to go today to finish all 3 sets. But I'm not going to give up.

*****UPDATE*****
I tried to finish the other half before changing to wash my workout gear. I only made it half way through the rest. I still have 40 jumping jacks to do, as well as the 60second wall sit. Guess I'd better get up and do them now so I can wash these stinky things.

Today's Kick in the Butt

Tuesday, July 03, 2012

I didn't go running yesterday. I didn't sit on my butt all day either, but I didn't go running.

There is no reason I haven't gone this morning beyond the fact that the Lazy Boy has reached up and grabbed me again. Right now, all I want to do is sit here and melt into this chair.

I didn't sleep very well last night. Between the heat and my hip starting to ache from the fans... I actually was falling asleep and the pain woke me up. Nothing frustrates me more than to have pain pull me out of that state. Funny thing is I wasn't in pain as I was falling asleep.

So needless to say, I had a very choppy night's sleep.

But I can't let that be an excuse. If I did, then I'd never get out there.



I need to find the motivation to get my shoes on and get out there before the heat of the day hits.



Just imagine if you had done this a year ago. If you had started, and not given up when the scale wouldn't budge. You wouldn't be avoiding clothing shopping like you are now. You wold feel great in your skin. You'd be noticing so many more glances, looks, etc.



You might even be able to pull this off by now.

Imagine a year from now. Do you want to still be stuck here? Or do you want to be in maintenance. No longer needing to push your body into weight loss. Just maintaining what I'll have worked so hard to get. And yes, when I get there it'll be because I've worked that hard. Not because I spent so much time in the chair.









************UPDATE******************
Went running. Almost completed C25K W2D3. I was 2 minutes from done, and just couldn't finish. It's so hot out. So I guess I'm repeating it tomorrow.

2.5miles in 34minutes. Not fast, but mostly run. Run4min, walk1min.

Now to tackle my other daily challenge:

  I'm just getting started, (once again) on trying to lose weight. I need to lose 40 lbs to feel really good about myself. I'm really hoping that I don't lose focus and quit when the scales aren't moving as I wish they would!
