Just do it!

Monday, April 15, 2013

I did NOT want to workout today. I'm exhausted, depressed and it's the last few weeks of the semester and I've got projects to finish and exams to study for. So stressed! But I told myself I just needed to do it. I only needed to do 10 minutes and that's not that bad. So I ended up doing 15 because I felt pretty good!

Yay me. emoticon lol

But now I've really got to buckle down and get some more work done tonight! Off to hit the books!

Need some muscle!

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

I added some strength training to my workout today and boy am I out of shape! I've never had much upper body strength but I used to be able to do a decent strength training workout. Today I realized how much work I'm going to have to do to get back to that. Just gotta keep going though! emoticon

I am proud to say that I have been two whole days without an alcoholic beverage. That may seem small but it's a big deal for me.

Reason I want to stop drinking:
-Feel physically better each day
-Save money
-Save calories
-Be able to fight depression much better

Gotta keep these in mind! emoticon

  


Conquering Challenges

Monday, April 08, 2013

Today was a very challenging day. It seemed like everything was plotting against my goal to exercise. A bunch of little things went wrong that just added up and left me completely frustrated. But despite that, I did my 10 minutes of exercise and felt great! I actually had fun doing it. I downloaded a music playlist and it was fun to listen to and be active.

I need to remember to not let things bog me down so much and just do it! I would like to be more positive. emoticon

The first step in the journey

Sunday, April 07, 2013

Where to begin? I started using SparkPeople about a year ago and did really well. Then I got off track and gained all the weight back plus some. Over the years I have struggled with depression, anxiety, eating issues and a drinking problem. All of these things combined have contributed to me having a very low self-esteem and being pretty unhealthy at times. I would like to put an end to these negative aspects of myself and release the vibrant, happy, confident woman that I know is a part of me. And I'm taking the first step by starting on SparkPeople again and doing things a little different this time around.

Here's to new beginnings and happy endings! emoticon
