It's time to stop holding myself back

Thursday, November 26, 2009

I have come to realize that I often hold myself back. I put things off. I wait for a better time, or for when I'm feeling up to it. I have decided that I need to figure out why I hold myself back. And while I figure that out, I'm going to "fake it til I make it". I'm going to acknowledge that I "don't feel like it" and do it anyway. I've been sick for the last 2 weeks, I exercised moderately for the first week, but then took a week off completely. It's time to get moving, again. The only way I can get slim again is to get moving again, like I used to when I was slim. I used to walk ALL the time. I used to dance ALL the time. I'm going to face exercise one minute at a time, til it adds up to at least 10 minutes in a row, and I'm going to lose weight one pound at a time, or an ounce at a time, if need be.

Whew. I think that's enough for right now. What do you think?

    yes, fake it till you make it, thats what I'm doing. I went to the gym monday and tuesday during my lunch breaks and I felt good monday but tuesday I didn't want to go, I really didn't want to go, but I did, and now I'm glad. One step at a time, one pound or ounce at a time, you can do it!!
