Excuses not to Exercise

Friday, October 19, 2012

My most common excuse is that I'm too tired, often because I didn't sleep well/enough. What I struggle with is recognizing when the thought "I need sleep more" is really true. Given that I have problems sleeping at the best of times with frequent wakeups/lie awakes, what I've been trying this past week is to see if I fall back asleep quickly--if I'm still awake in10 minutes, I get up and exercise.

10 Minutes More--Day 1

Monday, October 08, 2012

So one of this week's action steps is to commit to 10 minutes of daily exercise. Since I already exercise quite a lot, for me this translates to doing 10 minutes MORE.

Already did my usual Monday morning walk on the Embarcadero (20 minutes at 20 min/mile + 15 minutes at 30 min/mile) with a ~10 pound backpack. Planning a walk to Macy's mid morning to buy my Estee Lauder compact foundation and will do some stretching.

  


October 3rd

Wednesday, October 03, 2012

Day 5 since starting SparkCoach and I signed up. Feeling very positive as I see weight dropping--from 155 on Monday to 152.4 on Wednesday. I know it's water weight but I'll take it. Doing reasonably well with thyroid support regime and unprocessed (or minimally) food. Today I feel upbeat and confident that this time I will perservere and lose the excess weight and feel better.
