I just can't exercise today, or yesterday. My Dad's sick in the hospital in ICU, and I have been on the phone all day with my relatives, which was good, but I am feeling a bit numb and SAD and just can't bring myself to actually exercise. Today, is a good computer day.
This is life, sometimes you just have to put other obligations aside. It's not an excuse, it's just reality.
I am 2500 miles away from my parent's home and there's a major winter freeze there which has grounded a lot of planes at the airports. I sent my Dad some flowers to the hospital. My mom doesn't want me to get on a plane in the bad weather. I feel helpless, so here I sit. I am drinking water, I ate pizza today, but I am keeping the calories in my range. Some days, you just do what you can do. My heart is very heavy.
BUMMED... I hope tomorrow will be better news.

You are making good strides in changing not only the fact you are exercising, but also your mindset. Yesterday, you planned an exciting off road biking adventure with your husband and he loved it and so did you. Take advantage of your backyard of the Pacific Northwest and plan simple inexpensive adventures on bikes, hikes, or snowshoes. There is no excuse not to. Make some plans for this weekend and find something to do outside for a few hours. Get out of your rut, even your exercising rut and do something different and go somewhere different.
It's not just about exercising, losing weight, but completely changing your mindset. Change your mind and completely change your life.

You've done pretty good over the past few months not doing Sparkpeople. You did not gain a lot of weight (5 lbs) and you managed to be physically active without completely giving up. That's good! It's better than you have done previously, so that's a step in the right direction!
So now the plan is to possibly join a YMCA near by to help build and maintain a healthy lifestyle within the community. That would be very cool!
Work on drinking more water, and tracking your calories. Don't let that slip.
Thanks for listening! From ME!

I do this normally. I will add more info. later.
Well, I am back to report on intuitive eating from yesterday. I did well. I only ate when hungry. I ate breakfast late (cereal & milk). Decided then to make lunch dinner instead. I ate out with my husband at IHOP. I love that place, but for the first time I looked at the calories per meal, and nearly fainted. I had a low cal meal of chicken with balsamic vingar dressing, a small salad, and broccoli and walked away completely satisfied from my meal at 440 calories!
Late at home after shopping I was real hungry and had 2 small pieces of California pizza with chicken, and a tiny helping of 1/2 cup of icecream.
Overall, it was a great day for eating, but I did not exercise due to a minor health condition that some medication took care of today, so I am back on track today with exercise!
