I'm trying very hard not to be disappointed in myself. I have to understand that I've been doing the best I can given the circumstances. Today was the first day back to the gym since the 28th of November. It's so frustrating. For the first time in my life, I'm truly excited about exercise and eating healthy. But with my in-laws needing constant care, and not being able to leave them alone, it's been a challenge. At least I have been walking 2 miles every other day with the dog. But it's hard not to be disappointed in the numbers...inches lost, weight, clothes fitting etc. I need to look on the bright side. My in-laws are feeling much better, and I'm able to leave them for longer periods of time now. Today I started an exercise boot camp 3 times a week called Level Up. I get to work with personal trainers and workout with a group of people. I'm really excited about this. And I got my butt kicked with my workout today. I look at today's workout as the benchmark. It was really, really hard. By the end of the month I want to be able to do twice as much as I did today. I'm going to be the one kicking butt!
