I am feeling like I'm ready to jump in with both feet again. For two weeks I've been wishy-washy. One day I'd eat well, other day I'd walk...one day I'd say "bah" and do nothing.
Yesterday I had an appointment with an exersise physiologist. She was great! I wish we'd done more than just an evaluation because she really inspired me. I go back next week to begin the program. The "insurance" I have only covers three visits but I have a suspicion I will want to go more. I think they deal with a lot of folks who are only there under pressure so when I said I LOVE resistance training and I LOVE to sweat, she was bouncing up and down in her chair with glee. She's going to help me with core and upper body strength and my problematic right knee. I understand a bit more now why I quit walking - when I was deep in the pit of depression, walking was good for me, but bad also. It became my time to dwell on problems and self-pity. A healthy activity was unhealthy. Hopefully when I really start again TODAY I will be able to bypass that defeatist attitude. That's my goal.
Bad thing - I wore my pedometer. Left it in the bathroom at Crown Street Mall. That brought me down a bit even though it's just an item and not that important. I called Customer Service and they will phone if someone happens to turn it in. I hope someone wasn't seduced by the better quality of it. My only revenge will be the fact that that AM/PM time is backwards and it either needs a battery or it's going to quit working soon since I couldn't get it re-set recently. Hah!
