Struggling with Excersie

Wednesday, July 25, 2012

Well, I thought I was addicted to the gym. I was on the couch delaying my workout over and over again yesterday. I couldn't seem to get up. I was making excuse after excuse. It's my day off. I'm tried. I finally got sick of myself and walked out the door. I just walked out the door and looked for a hill. I have a road that goes up to a golf course close by my house. It was quite a hike. Little sketchy cause the road doesn't have a side for walking and cars ( not many) have to be careful and go around you. But I just headed up for 30 mins. Walked up to the golf course and stayed on road through it and ended up with a 60 min round trip walk/ hike/ run. I ran a bit on the way down since it was mostly down hill. A good adventure for a person not wanting to go to the gym. I earned my short rib for dinner :)

    There are certain times of the year I practically abandon the gym because it's too nice out to be pedaling/walking/stepping in place. Exercise is exercise and you probably got some Vitamin D too!

    Good job!

Exercise doesn't have to mean "going to the gym"! There are days that the LAST thing in the world I want to do is go to the gym, so I DON'T!

I find something else that sounds fun and DO IT!

Way to go on finding a way to get your activity for the day!

Trying to Relax

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Morning, coffee in hand. Sitting on the couch and thinking about fall. Funny, this summer has gone too fast. I'm excited to think that I might look good in holiday pictures this year :) It is something I dread. The last time I felt good in a pic during the holidays was about 17 years ago. I had lost 50 pounds after having my third child. I had really really worked hard. I walked everyday. Got a jogging stroller for the baby and I felt good :) This time around I will be saying goodbye to that baby by taking her to college Aug 23rd. I do feel good but can't wait to be down 20 more pounds. I know I need to be patience

Ok, it's now been two months!!!!! I'm down 15 pounds. This is not the fastest I've ever lost weight but it's different. I'm being very aware of my body chemist. I know when I run out of calories and when I need to eat for energy. I'm tracking food and really getting know more about it. Just thinking, once I hit the 1 year mark I'm going to be very educated on food and what it has too offer me

Aw, a bit better :)

Friday, July 20, 2012

Been having a rough go at life lately. Engine blew on car, daughter had registration problems at college orientation work cut my hours in half for most of the summer. So, I've had every reason to do what I always do. Eat a cheese burger. But I haven't as of yet so I'm learning to handle my stress better. Days without exercise I've notice are not good. I just made a turkey burger ( no bun) and 1/2 a potato. It gave me the satisfaction of the old meal I loved but in a healthy way :)

Morning :)

Fog everywhere. I know people who live in the heat would be envious but today I'm not into it. My youngest daughter and my husband took off at 3am to go to her freshman college orientation. It takes about 3.5 hours to get there. They are going to be tried. I'm back down to my original weight loss. Went up then back down so that's good :). I'm starting to learn you can eat what you want ( for the most part) just less and you can still loss weight. I attribute this to the nutrition tracker sparkpeople has. I try to be honest about EVERYTHING I eat and I'm now getting a feel for how much and what I eat out in the real world. I bought a chicken chow mein dish last night and ate 1/3 of it. I was able to pick out the portion of the dish that would work for my calorie, protein ,carb intake. I did well and was a pound down in the morning. I'm hoping this is training me for THE REST OF MY LIFE :)
