starting slowly

Monday, October 17, 2011

I am slowly starting to exercise again. I went for a bike ride with my youngest tonight. She is very fast and very inpatient. It was a good workout. Yesterday I worked in the garden and went on a short bike ride with Grace. I am looking at exercise a little different. Yes, I want to go back to the gym but I don't really have the time or gas money for that so I will try this for now. I am going for walks around the neighbor hood and riding bikes and working in the yard. I am getting exercise in when I can and not feel bad about it. My eating I am taking a different approach, I am not going to freak out and I am going to eat the things I want. My diet is not really a lot of bad choices but when I am stressed about work the food thing because a huge issue and I am trying to take the food stress away because that definetly causes lots of bad choices. So i am slowing down for the good of the long term goals and just taking a breather knowing the weight will come off and I will be a much better person for dealing with this in a postive healthy way.

This may not be the answer but it is mine for the moment and if it does not work out, then tomorrow I will try something different. If at first I don't succeed then I will try, try again until I am the active, healthy person I want to be!!

    emoticon Stress is a real killer isn't it? Hang in there. It sounds like you have a good plan for yourself. Mostly, you have the best attitude... If at first you don't succeed then you'll try until you are all that you can be!! emoticon
