Untitled unless I decide otherwise

Monday, January 30, 2012

So, it's been a couple of weeks since I posted a blog. Figured I should post some kind of update, and maybe even see if I can have an epiphany or two...

So for the past two weeks, I have done alright. Nothing spectacular, but I'm losing, and that's the point, right? The week of my mom's memorial, there were two days where I did not track, intentionally...but even with those days, I did ok. I am sure that I was over, and I know I did not drink enough water, but I did not lose sight of what I want.

Since those two days, I have tracked faithfully. The challenge I am having is my complete and utter lack of motivation to do anything regarding my fitness level. I think I have burned a total of 1000 calories all month. This does not fit with my plan, and I just don't seem to have it in me to go all Nike, and just do it.

On the upside...I'm still not smoking, and after a 10 month long hiatus, I got a new job!

Now, to spend the next couple of weeks trying to create a routine and get organized. I hope I can keep up the success.

    Making that fitness commitment to yourself is a big step, but a little goes a long way, with or without the weight loss. With the new job it's a great time to incorporate something into your day. You could walk around the block or up a flight of stairs or two every day. It doesn't mean you can't do more if you're up to it, but it's a way to put yourself first by making a small promise, and keeping it.

    You have had and are having lots of change in you life You really are doing great by taking each day as it comes, putting one foot in front of the other and just generally moving forward. We are all here for you and would like for you to keep us updated on your progress.

    As for motivation for fitness training, I struggle with that too and have the blogs to prove it! With so much going on in you life, just starting with a commitment of 10 minutes a day would be great. You gould march in place, walk, lift milk jugs anything! Even if you did that for a month or more, it would be a great start. Just continue to move forward and keep the commitments you make to yourself and remember, "You can't get there without going through here".

    emoticon on the new job... I've been out of work since last May too...

    I'm sure it must have been tough to stay on program for your mom's memorial. Sorry to hear you can't motivated to exercise... not even any fun stuff, just dancing around the house... I know it will sound weird, but have you ever tried Dancing to the Oldies with Richard Simmons, it is so fun and at the end of it,he has a parade of people go through and tells how many pounds they have lost... very encouraging.

    Hope the job works out well and remember there will be another stress involved in getting on a routine and used to that, so be good to yourself and do your best... emoticon
