I Should Know Better...

Monday, March 07, 2011

I find myself sitting here wondering why I fall off the wagon. When I'm eating better and working out, I feel so much better, physically and mentally, but for some reason, I keep falling off, and going back to my old habits. Maybe because it's easier? No carb counting, no sweating, just sitting around eating whatever I want... it doesn't hurt until I can't fit into something I want to wear, then, it's very, very painful.

I've been doing pretty good! Had my nephew's birthday party at the house Saturday, NO cake or ice cream for me! I didn't exercise that day, because there were tons of people around, and I'm not at the point where I'm comfortable working out in front of anyone except my family yet, but I ate right. I've done my two miles every other day, though, either on the elliptical or outside. I feel like I work harder on the elliptical. When I'm outside, it's easier to slow down without realizing it until I look at the timer and think, 'oh, crap! Seventeen minute mile?!?'

I feel a lot better this go round, and I think it's because I quit smoking, and I'm not pushing myself quite like I did the first time. Hopefully this time I will make my goals, and not slip back into my old lifestyle!
