Just do it
Monday, December 05, 2011
The only secret to winning this health and fitness game is "just do it." I have been an obscene procrastinator on this. I have been heavier then I am now and I lost it and kept a great figure for about 5 years. I thought I had this battle won, but here I am, 40-45 pounds more then I want to be.
The biggest difference in my state of mind during those success years and today was I didn't play the "I blew for today" game. That is how you end up just not doing it. You erred and so you postpone your plan until tomorrow or the day after, or the weekend, or Monday or whatever.
In my success years if I had an indulgence I was did not let that pull off my plan. I just carried on and ate correctly the next time I opened my mouth for food. If I missed a workout one day, I worked out the next day. I was a runner when I was looking after myself and I'd get my 3-4 runs in per week. In other words, I'd just do it.
Currently I always have a reason to delay and I've yet to get on a good eating plan.
So, here it is, just over 2 months since my last blog entry and I haven't been checking in and I'm up a couple pounds, which I haven't entered. There is no way I'm reaching that xmas goal at this point.
The good news is I just got this wii-fit that I bought hooked up and I have worked out with it every day for the last 6 days. I love it. It is fun and it has great pace. I turned 50 today and I had a wii-fit, potluck birthday party. It was fun and I really worked out today. Ok, so the food everyone brought was delicious so I also ate well. I definitely over indulged, but not insanely so. I didn't go back for seconds.
Now, I'm not sure how much logging I'm going to do on here. The wii-fit does a pretty good job of logging your activities and it keeps a running tally of weight.
I'm definitely getting onto my wii-fit tomorrow. I love that I can choose how hard I'm going to workout and if I'm feeling tired from today I'll just work on balance and posture exercises.
