Ever look back and realize you got good advice and for usually stupid reasons you didn't take it and now have cause to regret it? Seems like the universe has been shoving me quite persistently for the last year. The Spark book was the first. But then I ignored it. Then I did actually achieve three fast breaks for two months change but then I relapsed and never tracked it, so didn't stay motivated. Then I started swimming twice a week for 2 months until the condo pool heater broke.
Then I saw the Oprah show in TO and got really motivated and inspired again. Now I have joined a gym because I realize working out at home doesn't work for me at this point. I actually need someone shouting motivational advice at me and I found a gym where people seem real and have bigger problems then my own to combat. I get my fitness assessment Thursday. And now I am wishing I'd listened to the specialist who said fixing my bite could greatly relieve jaw pain. The more stressed I am the more my jaw hurts. And the dentist who told me to get this done two years ago. Now I have thousands of dollars of dental work needed all at once when I can't afford it but have to. North American society is very judgemental of people with bad teeth. My penchant for sweets is going to be my hardest challenge in terms of food to greatly reduce but my teeth will thank me one day.
Oh well, to focus on positive things. Today I walked the dog for 45 minutes. I signed up for Sparkpeople. Love the site's functionality. Found a small light in the dark. And just doing something feels good.
