Falling down -- and getting back up again

Wednesday, February 18, 2009

Fallen off the wagon. I missed exercise on Monday and today, been eating things without really paying much attention. I doubt I've gone over 2000 calories on any day except for Valentine's Day (ate out and had a Mrs. Field's cookie), but I still feel uncomfortable.

I blame most of the failure on a combination of building stress and that it was raining for 3 solid days. It's really hard for me to get up to go to the gym when it's freezing and pouring rain since I have to wake up early AND walk 10 minutes.

Excuses, excuses; it takes me until I establish a solid routine (about 1 month of regularly going) before I can do it through things like that without having to force myself.

I am really looking forward to getting into athletic shape because I sincerely want to start swimming and hiking and running and biking and playing group sports and doing all the things I know make me feel good and look good. I really do! It's just been really hard to give up the comfort of lazing around and eating whatever I want when I'm depressed, which I have been for a majority of the past several months.

Medication should help if I can ever find a way to bring my focus back. Working on that one, too.

Starting Friday, assuming no rain, it's back to the gym for me. This will be a feat since Friday is a pretty "busy" day off for me.
