Almost a Month in!

Wednesday, May 26, 2010

So I'm almost at the month in point! I am quite happy so far with what I've been eating though exercising has been as it normally is... non-existent. I've talked to a friend about walking together but when there is about a 150 lbs difference in weight I feel like I'll just be holding him back (he wants to start running for exercise).

Among other things I'm not at a point where I can join a gym, even though I think this time around I could make use of it well. In a month I'm going away for work for one month and then I'm unsure about my living situation this coming fall. With all that going on in my life and job searching it's just easier to ignore exercise all together.

I wish there was some magical motivation pill that would make me go "WOW I really feel like exercising today!" Until then I'm just going to try and stick to my nutrition plan and hope for the exercising to fall in line.

    I say that if your friend has agreed to walk with you, then go for a walk together! Don't worry about "holding him back". It can be about exercise and conversation, companionship, or even just holding each other accountable to getting some exercise. If he is also interested in running, then he'll find time to do that too.

    Sounds to me like you'd enjoy walking together, don't try to negate that! Just go enjoy a nice walk together! Maybe that would help you get motivated to do more exercise in the future...

    Give it a try! Go for it! You can do it! Have fun!

    The exercise will come. At first you really have to talk yourself into it. You know....fake it til you make it kind of thing. Imagine that you LOVE it. I know, it's not easy. But, you will get there. Every little bit of movement helps. A 10 minute walk is better than no walk.

    Set really easy small exercise goals so they are reachable so you won't get discouraged.

    Good luck on your journey! You can do it.
