Two days of commitment! I started yesterday. I actually surprised myself (not really) with how out of shape I am. I bought some new fitness DVD's. With the new year, everything to do with fitness can be found on sale in stores. I bought some Biggest Loser DVD's. I would like some of the Sparkpeople items, but I don't believe they ship to Canada, so I am getting back into taking advantage of the website. Time working out wasn't long to start-a 16 minute indoor power walk yesterday, and a 21 minutes one today. But I felt it. I am motivated after it. In fact, as soon as I log off here, I think I may hop on my upright bike or my recumbant and pedal for a bit. I have decided I am going to slowly work my way back into the gym-I mean I pay for it. Anxiety is a big issue with me-and crowds, so my plan is to start this Friday after work-it will have died down some as the week progressed. I am moving forward, back on the right path which I have chosen. Yay me!!!

Yesterday not a good day. I started with my sit-ups in bed before the work day began which was good. It was crazy at work, so I decided to skip the gym. I went home, ate a healthy vegetarian lasagne, then blew it. I ate 3 (Though they were small) but still, 3 peanut butter ice cream sandwhiches(peanut butter ice cream between two peanut butter cookies)-which makes 6 cookies. I will say I did at least ride my recumbant for 20 minutes, but still am unhappy with my work-out and eating day. But now, yesterday is over, and today is new-so I am going to give it my all today. Luckily there are no more ice cream sandwhiches in the house, and now that I know my downfall with them (this was the first time I bought them to try), I will NOT be buying them again. I have no willpower around certain foods, so I need to avoid them until I am able to enjoy just one. Have a good day.

I didn't go to Zumba last night, but I did ride my recumbant bike at home for 35 minutes. This morning I did over 100 sit-up/crunches before I left my bed. After work it will be gym day.

I have that saved on my e-calendar at work. It now pops up at day's end recurring. Yesterday I did get go to the gym. I am pretty happy. Yesterday is over and onto today. Today, I am thinking of actually going to a Zumba class, surrounded by some people with a common goal, fitness and fun. My sister-in-law and her friends will be there, so it won't be strangers. Time to get to work though. Have a good one.

My problem is I have been focusing too much on the distant future and getting overwhelmed and worried about the changes to me, that I let it sabotage my beginning. Starting yesterday, I still know where I want to be, but I am focusing on the present day more. I wll reach my goal, one day at a time. So today, I have my plan of attack. Today I am going to go to the gym after work. Yesterday I worked out at home-my own interpretation of ZUMBA-sweat I did. I even set my alarm clock 15 minutes early, and rode my recumbant bike for a few minutes this morning. I keep telling myself, what I want to be-strong, fit, healthy. I don't want to be out of breath from pulling my little nephew up hill in his wagon. I want to charge the hill. One day at a time. Tomorrow is done-today is NOW.
