Back to the Gym!
Thursday, May 17, 2012
After a week away, I was back at the gym this morning. Still no strength training (somehow, the movements in strength training scare me a bit more with my back titchy!)
But back to truly sweaty workouts.
And it felt awesome!
I think getting a good sweat in first thing in the morning, along with starting the day with a super healthy breakfast are keys to success. They set me on the right mindset for the rest of the day. They remind me that I want the body of someone who puts in some serious time at the gym and eats healthy, not the body of a couch potato who subsists on junkfood.
Without that reminder, it's really hard for me to stay on track.
I will update my ticker on Monday and I can guarntee I won't show a loss. I may not show much or any gain, but I definitely am not on track to meet my May weightloss goal of being below 200 by the start of June.
So, what does that mean? Only what it says. I won't weigh 200 by the beginning of June.
The most important piece is what it doesn't mean.
It doesn't mean I have thrown in the towel. It doesn't mean that I am a failure. It doesn't mean that I am doomed to be obese for the rest of my life. It doesn't mean I should stop exercising and start eating junk again.
The past few weeks were a setback. In life, setbacks come.
But it's not failure till I stop trying.
And I will NEVER stop trying.
