One step forward, two steps back. I recovered from all my viral sickness from December and got back on the gym wagon for 2 weeks but now my back is injured and I can barely move. I am too young for this. I am bored and stressed and keep over eating to the point of massive stomach aches after each "meal". My calories are exceeded 2000+ each day.
I suppose if I can't get back to my exercising schedule this is a good time to really focus on fixing up my eating compulsions. Healthy living is really an upward battle sometimes.

Happy new year everyone! 2014 here I come. This year I put a lot of effort into exercising and eating well, even though I wasn't always successful. I had a lot of ups and downs and didnt really loose much weight but I did tone up at times, and worked to build healthy habits.
This year I am going to stick to it, change doesnt happen over night after all.
I was off the wagon for a three weeks there, overloaded at work and sick. November and December were very tough months for me. I got my wisdom teeth removed, developed a mystery skin condition (x2), got the flu and a cold, and possibly have mystery allergies to boot. I got back to binging on sugar, which is still very out of control, but I am back to the gym now and getting back on track with my diet.
Today was the first real day back to the gym in the new year and I did a Body Combat class. It was very difficult, honestly 20 minutes in I thought I would never make it to 50 minutes and wanted to leave but I persevered! I must have had 4-5 "second winds" but I finished and I am so proud! Goodlife estimates that that class burns in the 700s for calories, wohoo.
In the new year I would like to attend as many different classes as I can consistently and tone up. I would like to feel that I have control over the food going into my body and not visa vera.
These are life long goals, and as long as I never give up fully I will never fail.

I read the article on the main page today about making time for exercise, somethings I often think about doing but dont do. I have not exercised for 2 weeks because I have been on vacation. I have my exercise clothes, mat, shoes etc. I could go for a run, do a sit up or even a walk, but I have chosen not to. What's done is done, I am not going to beat myself up about it, I can turn over a new page any time I choose.
Soon I will be back to work again, which will be very good for me since I will be back into a sleep and meal routine.
I read a comment in the article posts that was very inspiring. The commenter said that she always makes time for exercise unless it is absolutely unavoidable to miss it. She does it for herself and family. The article talked about looking at exercise like your job, a doctors apt or meeting, you wouldn't miss those. It is about making a commitment to yourself.
I feel like I often over think things, making a lot of excuses and confusing the crap out of myself about why I havent succeeded. Things would be easier if I just said "yes" to exercise after work each week day. Louis has been gently mentioning going for walks on the days I cannot go to my gym classes. I say it is to hard but I think I will just say yes from now on.

If a person really wanted to go to bed earlier at night, but continued to stay awake late, do they really want to achieve the original goal?
If a person really wanted to learn french, but never spoke french, do they truly want to learn french?
Same with weight loss. If I truly wanted to lose weight and get fit then I would stop binge eating, right? But I never have.
So I ask myself, is this just laziness, stupidity or a fear of success?
