Wow, end of February

Friday, February 20, 2009

Well, here it is, almost the end of February. Almost a month since my last blog. I am feeling a little frustrated. I haven't been tracking my food. I have been thinking about why I don't want to do it. The bottom line is that I don't want to change my eating habits. I want to be thin but I don't want to pay attention to what I eat. Unfortunately, that isn't going to work. I have some soul-searching to do.

End of another week/month

Friday, January 30, 2009

Well here it is, the end of another week and another month (almost). My progress has slowed. I haven't been working as hard but I also didn't go overboard with eating. I had a couple of major distractions in my life this week. I realize that I have to get use to that because it seems that life is just one big long series of distractions. I have to eat healthy regardless of what is going on. I also have to make time for exercise too. I did well at the exercise part this week but need to do better at the eating part. I have a new goal. Ever since I first saw The Terminator, I've wanted to be able to do a pull up. I added some specific exercises to my regiment to help with that. I'll let you know how I progress. emoticon


Rough Day

Sunday, January 25, 2009

I had a rough day yesterday. This coming off of a great few days away. I was upset and emotional because I was worried about someone else. Unfortunately I let it get the best of me. Today I will get back on the horse - so to speak- and resume my healthy eating. I'll get to the gym today- assuming my car starts... Baby, it's cold outside! emoticon

So far so good!

Friday, January 16, 2009

Well I've made it through a week of eating right and exercising. I almost didn't go to the gym tonight. It is cold and I had run a lot of errands already. I just wanted to go home and curl up with a good book or watch a movie. I pushed myself to just go to the gym for 15 minutes. Start on the treadmill and if in 15 minutes I don't feel like staying, I don't have to! It always works for me. I've decided that 15 minutes is better than nothing and usually I stay and work out longer. This was the case tonight. I did strength training followed by 15 minutes of cardio intervals. I feel great- even better for having gone. Now - if I can just make it through the weekend...


This time

Wednesday, January 14, 2009

This time I will succeed at changing my life. I must be the eternal optimist because I have been here over and over again. And everytime I am here I feel that this will be the successful time. Yet, this time I have a different attitude about it. While there is a sense of urgency about fitting into smaller clothes before spring, there is more a sense of that I need to do this for my health. I've thought that before too but didn't really believe it. Now as I copy family video tapes over to digital media I see myself as never before. I have avoided mirrors and pictures for years so I guess I knew my size somewhere... I don't want to be this size anymore. I don't want the health problems that will come with age & size - some of which are starting. This time I will succeed.
