It's amazing how easy it is to fall back into what you have always done. For a long time, I kept up the idea of working out. But I didn't put my all into it and I didn't go as often as I knew that I should be. It happened because I was frustrated. I worked out 5 days a week and every week I would get on the scale and it would say the same thing. What's the point of working out so hard if you aren't going to lose any weight? And it isn't like I did this for a month. It was closer to 6 months. Then my motivation started to diminish and I started going to the gym 3 days a week. And eating worse and I still maintained my same weight. Then I stopped going to the gym completely. Sure, I was sick. The entire family was sick. But I could have made it in to do 20 minutes or something like that. I just didn't want to. To be honest, I still don't. I know it will be fine once I get back into it. I will even start to look forward to it. But right now. I seriously don't want to. BUT- I weighed myself this morning. And it was not good. So to the gym I will go. Because I refuse to even flirt with the 300 pound marker again. I will not allow it. So, 30 minute brisk walk at lunch, and once the kids are in bed - time to hit the gym.
