Running out of steam

Tuesday, January 24, 2012

Okay, how on earth have I run out of steam already? I just started eating better and exercising and I am bored already. I ate chips and cookies and just about everything else that wasn't nailed down. As for exercising, the weather has been dreadful. I took my dog out the other day and that was the last time I walked. The weather is warmer but now it is slushy and slippery. Hmmmm sounds like a lot of excuses . . . will do better tomorrow. emoticon

    This is the battle I fight constantly, too. You're SO not alone. I swear, 2 weeks is about as long as I usually last when I'm trying to "do better"--and then I find myself in the same spot as you, looking around for something to eat, etc.

But it's good that you recognize that in yourself--awareness if the first step to fixing it, right?

So that's why I told myself this year, "one decision at a time". And I'm not dieting this time. I'm just trying to choose a little better and do some exercise--just 10 mins--consistently.

I don't mean to lecture you--just wanted to show some empathy. I'll bet you're already back at it. :-)

    I'm just finished 4 weeks on the old WW program today. But at least a day or so eaclh week it's hard. I think I have to set smaller goals... I like the SP idea of losing 10%... that seems a lot more manageable than trying to lose almost 100 lbs. That put me on hold for a while because it just seemed so totally overwhelming... I'm not so great with sticking with it and staying on goal. Keep hanging around SP, it is really great and there is so much here for everyone... emoticon

    You CAN do better tomorrow. It's all about looking at everything and realizing that each thing that we do is a choice; not easy choices, but choices.

  I know exactly how you feel my friend. Just remember what your body is. Your body is a machine and in order for that machine to perform at its best ability you must provide with the best fuel. Chips and cookies are not the best fuel my friend. Just think how good you'll feel. This is your body and not anyone else's. You want your home to look nice right? Well why not make your body, your true home, nice as well
