I've been back at it for a week!

Tuesday, January 05, 2010

Well I've been working out this past week and it has gone well. On Friday I was a little perturbed because it seemed as though I was gaining weight for all of my efforts. Then the wonderful weekend came and with it breakthrough. I'm not showing any progress on my chart lately because I had put back on a few of the pounds which I had lost since I've been tracking it here. To keep myself motivated I only chart the losses. So when, like lately, there has been a gain I "ignore" it until I've corrected the situation.

The exciting thing about all this is that I've been walking. A year ago I couldn't walk far at all. Now I'm walking 3-4 miles per day. I've finally added some strength training and stretching exercises as well. I'm gonna try yoga again soon.

Generally speaking, I like exercise. I'm glad I'm more able to do it. I'm looking forward to more opportunities to try things as my body gets stronger.

    Sometimes I ignore the small gains too, but I still try to "weigh in" at least once a week and a half or so to help keep myself honest. I keep the not-so-distant memory of my "new low" in mind and strive to get there again.

    Keep at it! emoticon
