A Present to Myself!

Monday, March 19, 2012

This morning I woke up late and almost didn't go to the gym. I went anyway, even though I didn't want to I went. That's what it takes. I have to get that feeling in my bones. I felt good afterwards. I also lost weight this week, which is always a bonus.

I get so discouraged so easily when I don't lose weight. I have to understand that this is a slow process and steady wins the race. I always want everything "right now". My thinking tells me if I exercise everyday for a week, I should lose weight. When I don't I get discouraged. I have to train myself to realize, although I may not lose weight in a week, exercise is still very very important. It is good for me. I know that, but when I look in the mirror I say, "what's the point?"

But I'm getting my head together and will continue to exercise. Exercise is one thing that I can do for myself. I have to think of it as a gift that I give to me. So I enjoyed my present this morning.
