The goal was to get to the gym once-it didn't happen. Maybe this week. Last night I woke up at 1 am, then 5:44 am, and the thought popped into my head to go then before work started at 7:30am. It didn't happen. So my goal is to go this week. I know how I want to be, fit and healthy. Last week I did a minute of jumping rope, and I was so out of breath. When I was a kid, my friends and I used to jump double dutch the entire lunch hour and small recess'. I will get back to that good health.
Easter was a disaster. I have no self-control whatsoever. I made a new recipe, lemon squares, from the Kraft magazine. They had cream cheese in them-well I more or less inhaled them. It will be a long time before I make them again because they are just too good-and I need to avoid things like that.
I would like to say I am going to go for a walk now, but I don't think that would be truthful. Maybe I will wake up early again and actually get to the gym in the morning, when there is way less people there. People from work go there in the mornings and I don't really want to see them, but if I can't seem to get my butt in gear after work, perhaps morning is what I will have to do.
Have a good evening all. We can reach our goals. I know in time I will.

Soooooooooooooo, it is 7:19 pm, and I have done absolutely nothing in my drive to win the battle of the bulge. I care yet I dont today. But I do plan to crank my stereo and do some indoor walking/dancing for a bit. The stress of other areas in my life are weighing me down. It is a head game, and I am going to figure it out and win.

Have a good evening

I was supposed to be off work today. My plan was to get back into the gym when it was quiet, to ease into it. Well, at 7:30am work called and could I come in. So I did. And the gym was left at the wayside, yet again. I know I will complete my task/goal for the week of getting there once, perhaps tomorrow. It's frustrating. Anyway, I did dance around for 25 minutes-that is something I guess. I didn't go for a walk like I planned. I was even wearing proper shoes. I am frustrated with myself. I want to become the person I dream of, but something holds me back. Fear maybe. Fear of success more than failure I think.

I am going to try not to eat any of the hersheys mini's or peanut butter cups I have left over that I bought last week for the rest of this week. I know I can do it. They will be my Easter treat. Once they are done I am going to try very hard not to give in to temptation and buy them. If I do find myself craving chocolate, as I am sure I shall, I will go a different route and buy 1 chocolate bar, instead of a bag of minis because I seem to have no self control around chocolate whatsoever.

April 2, 2007
I went to work today and had a busy day. There is no work tomorrow_I am on call, and who knows when I will get called back again-this week or next. So I stressed, and instead of tying on running shoes (my gym bag was in the trunk of my car), I headed home, doing a detour at the local tim hortons for a box of timbits. They are almost gone. The thought crossed my mind briefly to go for a walk, but I couldn't motivate myself. I decided tomorrow is going to be the day I get back into the gym-during the day it will be less chaotic and I can ease back in. I am excited to get back on the equipment, yet anxious at the same time (people phobia). I am not a lost cause, everyone has moments of backsliding. I am sure I will have others.
