Some of the things I didn't get done today:

Saturday, April 07, 2012

I didn't exercise, log my food, or study. There was no meditation, no seeking of Jesus, or even paying of Good Friday respects. I didn't do one thing for myself. And not much for others. Oh wait, it's already Saturday! I can start over. ( still awake because I DID drink too much coffee!!!)

    emoticon recognizing that the answer wasn't to mope over what you didn't accomplish, but to look forward and realize what you can accomplish in the now.

Try, try, again

Off and running. A friend shared her fears with me regarding possible weight gain since a new injury prohibits her from running. In considering her fears throughout our work day, I asked her how she lost weight prior to running.

"Food tracking," she said, "I tracked ever morsel and and I hated it!"

That reminded me that I have always resisted tracking my food intake. It's far more discipline then I have ever had. I shared this with my friend and we talked awhile about the resistance to accountability. Seeing how my discouraged friend was made me think that I want to accept this new challenge with her.

So, she will join me with her own tracking, just to reset the eating pattern until she can exercise aggressively again. And I will hopefully learn to focus on what goes in my mouth. I downloaded a free and simple tracking system for my cell so I'll have no excuse not to track.

I'll take off the 7 or so pounds I've put on since my daughters wedding in August.
Meanwhile, any weight my friend loses as a result will mean new and cuter running cloths when she begins to run again.


The struggle continues . . . in a new way!

Lately I've been having trouble leaving the house. This from a girl who couldn't wait to get out. So, I'm not exercising, not completing tasks and commitments. I do get out to go to work or meet someone I've agreed to meet. I keep creating tasks at home that I SHOULD, do first. Of course, there is always something that needs to be done, but I know I'm hiding out here and using chores as an excuse. Help, I'm too comfortable at home. I want to get back out to U-Jam and Zumba and to meet my friends for a walk. Help!!

    Are you eating enough food? If you don't get proper nourishment your body will try to hold onto what it has so starvation won't set in

    maybe you are gaining some muscle mass? Or could it be that your body is retaining water??
