Although I wouldn't dream of abandoning my weight loss journey altogether, I find I have an all or nothing attitude when it comes to fitness. I missed a couple of days of cardio and strength training this week and rather than pick up where I left off, I chose instead to wait until next week so I can "get it right".
I realize this attitude is one of perfection, not progress. I want to share my struggles as well as my triumphs in my blogs, but I'm afraid I'll be judged. But maybe I can get some support this way. My DH thinks I'm abandoning it all. Only time will show him that's not the case.
Writing this honest blog with my shortcomings has given me the motivation to do a full-body workout today, something I only "thought" of doing this morning. It's perfect: I did a full- body workout Thursday and I'm "off"on Sunday. "Don't put off until tomorrow (or Monday) what you can do today." Unfortunately, it's too hot outside to walk in the park this afternoon and evening (108*). Early mornings are really the only times to walk outside here in deep South Texas. So, I'll stick with strength training today and then have a veggie and protein packed salad for dinner.
Whoever said blogging didn't help?!
