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 goal..to 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!!
