Well June is ending without the financial assistance to continue at the Y. But I will not let that deter me. I will continue working out at the Y until July 15th since that is paid for and will look for other options to continue participating with others in an affordable way. I need the support and motivation of others doing the same thing in order for me to maintain this momentum. Someone mentioned to me that Planet Fitness offers a monthly rate of $10 which is all I can afford, so I will look into that this week.
I want to have a plan for July that keeps me wanting to exercise and as surprised as I am about it, I think the gym atmosphere is what will do it for me.

WOW ..... can't believe May slipped away and now 1/2 of June is just about gone !!!
What's even more disturbing is that I haven't lost any weight that has made a difference. yeah I am still juggling that same 6 pounds that I just can't get rid of in order to inspire me to lose more. Worst of all I just don't know why? Well I mean I know why; it's because I am not in control of my portions mainly, but also because of too many occasional treats. What I mean by why is - why am I not in control of these things??? I used to be when I was losing weight regularly. I was so determined that nothing would get in my way of learning how to get healthy and it started with losing weight. As I did I became more confident and wanted to participate in having a social life ... in other words having fun again. Maybe I became to complacent?
I haven't been able to pin point where I strayed and why?
Is it because I got very comfortable with the weight i had loss since it made such a drastic difference, or was it all the compliments I was getting making me feel too confident, or is it because work has been going through a lot of turmoil that has effected everyone, could it be the price of everything has gone up and my pay check has not seen a raise in 4 years. I dare say that all of these have had some influence and probably others that I haven't even thought of yet !!!
Here I thought a plateau was something that only lasted a few weeks or months, not for me it's been 2 years that I've been juggling this 6 pounds !!! I will say that on the positive side at least I have been able to juggle it, I think that says something. I have learned to eat healthy and I recognize when I am not, I know I need to choose healthy eating AND exercise not one or the other and in this last 2 years I have added 15 minutes each day of walking and stair climbing as a regular part of my day. So knowing what I know tells me that 15 minutes each day has warded off those 6 pounds from becoming 12, and let me at least juggle them.
But that's not what I want to be doing !!!
Now that I have had this talk with myself and can see the words in front of me, I think I can put things into prospective now and move forward with a clearer vision of where I am going and how to get there.

Looks like I am really late with my February blog huh !!! Well better late than not at all I guess.
I know I am not alone in this comment but I'll say it anyway ..... I am so over this winter, cold, snow, sleet, and ice oh and did I mention the shoveling and still having to go to work in it all ?? But I know Spring is coming, it's on it's way. I know this because I hear the birds chirping in the morning, some days the temps are rising and today was daylight savings time. So all the signs are here .... so I am waiting !!!
Now about my healthy habits in Feb, well I think I am still a work in progress since I am still losing and gaining the same pounds over and over again. I'm still getting my exercise in just not enough I guess but there was no desire for me to go out once I get home in the dark and cold and the weather just took a toll on my mood and motivation. All I did when I came home was go on SP and motivate others and catch up with my SP friends. This by no means is a complaint because I love being an active member on SP it helps keep me accountable to myself and it works.
So I am looking forward to warm enough weather with an hour extra of daylight to take an evening walk during the month of March. Here it is already the 9th and I have enjoyed some extra walking this weekend, so things are looking up.
Come on Spring push winter away and let the sunshine in !!!
