Reset Button, Please!

Sunday, July 10, 2011

I have always hoped that one day I will get to a point where I don't have to "start over" again. I wish when I messed up I would just be able to put it aside and move onto healthier eating again. But alas, that day is not today.... So I am hitting the reset button!

My previous blog posted some pretty major goals, and I think the comments were right as far as I had a LOT up there to follow. So instead of a 12 week challenge I'm focusing on the first 30 days. I weighed myself and I am not stepping on the scale for 30 days - my husband is putting it in his car so I can't cheat! However, I did reserve the right to sneak a peek after two weeks if I have been doing well! (Trust me, going just a week without the scale is MAJOR for me!) I'm tracking my food and setting my exercise goals. I am SO excited to get back into running again! I am starting the C25K program over... I had worked myself up to 4 miles at the end of winter while I was training for a half marathon, but I screwed up my leg because I was running in old shoes:( Won't make that mistake again!

I am so excited to get back to feeling better and PROUD of myself. I miss that feeling of accomplishment. I can't wait to see how much better I feel in the next few days...

    There's nothing wrong with reset buttons. The're just brand, new starts with lessons learnt from previous mistakes. Good luck!

    I got off the exercise track for a bit too. I set a goal of 10 minutes a day every day this week. I did 15 minutes today! Tomorrow starts my 5K training, so we'll be in this together. My 5K is August 13. The cool thing is that we've done this before, so it will be "easier" this time just knowing that we can because we have. emoticon

    I'm right there with you! I hit "reset" and am clawing my way to feeling better physically and emotionally. I'm also staying off the scale - for me, really just to center and focus on each day on its own, rather than just weight progress. I'm sick of feeling yucky!
