Regrouping... not restarting....

Tuesday, April 19, 2011

So I have become bored and tired of journaling and of exercising... it has been 16 weeks and I am down 14.2 pounds, not bad at all but it is slow and this pace does not always keep me motivated.

I have been exercising religiously 3-4x a week, until recently (the last two weeks I have worked out twice) and I am not sure why that has lulled so much. I am guessing I am bored- and that is easy to switch up. The two times I did exercise I was NOT on the treadmill or lifting weights. I walked 3.75 UP the dirt mountain I live on... half all the way up and half all the way down. I went with my husband (I am too afraid to go on my own because of bears and bobcats)- and that was really nice. So I guess I have to make some changes because I am bored.

I need to measure--- I was due to measure on Friday the 15th but didn't do it- I will today as that usually motivates me- hope I am not disappointed but if the numbers don't move I only have myself to blame because of the last two sedintary weeks.

I am VERY busy- and have alot to do that I don't usually have to do and I find I am allowing myself to use this extra work as an excuse to relax and by pass the exercise! I am so aware of this- but still I do it!!

So I have to regroup! I have to spend some time reminding myself why I am doing this... not to be skinny because that is not what I want but to be HEALTHY! I want to look healthy and feel healthy. I have 5.3 more pounds to lose to hit a milestone be in ONDERLAND... that would be awesome but it will NOT happen if I give up or get lazy.

So I will carry on.. as slow at it goes.. I will carry on!!

    You know what I KNOW you can do this!! I believe that you will find something to motivate you. I felt like this the other day. I am not even halfway to my goal so I need to kick it in the butt and get moving for the sake of knowing how good I feel when I do what I know I should. You will find the strength in you!!

    Way to go on all you have accomplished so far!!! emoticon

    Boy can I relate! My story is almost the same as yours. I am determined to carry on too, starting by reminding myself that there is 15 lbs. less of me than when I started SP in January. Not the fastest progress in the world, but it is progress. Keep at it, and I'll look forward to seeing your posts. emoticon
