The best laid plans of mice and . . .
Monday, March 14, 2011
obese blondes who work at a computer all day & then play on Facebook all night . . . oft times go astray.
I had begun 2011 with a goal and a good start at better nutrition & fitness. Then I started a 5KYourWay running plan that began well, but got sidetracked. I lose a few pounds then gain it right back - all in the same week. I'm stuttering along and not getting anywhere.
My husband wrote a great blog about excuses. I guess I need to print it and put it on one of my monitors. I have an appointment with my primary care physician this Friday. . . I was supposed to have lost a few lbs by now so he could tell me "good girl" - now I'm gonna get "the frown" instead. I'm pre-diabetic, and I REALLY need to make sure I don't go into full blown Type II diabetes (I already have Celiac Disease).
I think I need to re-read The Spark. Something hasn't clicked in my head yet or I wouldn't still be having this problem of getting a good start. I like fruits & vegetables, but don't eat enough of them. I enjoy listening to my iPod while on the treadmill, but I don't do it daily. I've got stress at work, and know that exercise is supposed to help that, but only want to "veg out" on Facebook after work. I'M NOT HITTING ON ANY OF MY CYLINDERS!!! (that's a car term)
So my birthday is coming up soon. This Friday after I see my doctor hubby and I are going to the coast for 4 days (just the two of us)
I think we need to have a long conversation while walking on the beach (I'm always ready to walk on the beach - that's one exercise I don't put off).
