Okay, I'm done whining.
I'm done with feeling sorry for myself because I've backslid.
I'm done with staring at my Wii and thinking, "Y'know, I should probably get back on that."
I'm done with thinking, "But I've lost so much stamina/strength/whatever that exercise is HARD now!" (Cue appearance of fine cheese to go with that fine whine.)
As of TODAY, I'm back on The Spark. I've tracked everything I've eaten, and when I get home from work, I'm going to do what I did when I was really going strong: get into my workout clothes straightaway, and get back on that Wii Fit. I've lost too much stamina to do the harder workouts? Boo hoo! I'm putting on my big girl panties and starting at the beginning again.
'Cause it worked before, right? Of course it did. *points at user icon* Once upon a time, I had lost 50 pounds. I think I've backslid ten or fifteen--I'll find out when I get home and fire up the Wii Fit again--but that's no biggie. I can reclaim that in a few weeks, and then I'll be back on it, ready and rarin' to go.
And the best part is, I KNOW this works. I KNOW I can make this happen. I KNOW I can get off my duff and start moving again. I KNOW I can lower my resting heart rate and strengthen my muscles and get my lungs working better. I KNOW how to cook healthy meals and portion them appropriately. I KNOW how to get around my sweet cravings when they happen--and they will happen, I KNOW that, too.
So! I'm gettin' myself back in the groove. And you know what? I KNOW how great it's gonna feel. In fact, it feels pretty great already.
