Update Blog

Saturday, May 26, 2012

Well it has been three months since I recommitted to getting fit again. I restructured my exercise program to include two days a week of intense water aerobics in addition to all my walking and elliptical workouts. I added more stretching, controlled breathing, and spiritual work.

The good is working. I have lost 18 pounds and am back to my "normal" weight, I have more energy and a desire to stay focused.

It does take a lot more time and effort though, I won't deny it. Constantly making sure I make healthy food choices, get the workouts done, light the candle and breathe, read and stay educated on health modalities.....I can see why sometimes I have slipped over the last thirty years.

Right now though, I am pumped up, content, and feeling good. I am not going to swear that I will never gain weight again...I am just going to set the intention, stay focused and hope for the best.

It get easier when it becomes a habit and a pleasurable one such that our bodies look forward to moving and eating well balanced meals.

    It's never easy is it? I mean it should be, but it is just too easy for bad habits to creep back in. I congratulate you on your recommitted focus and success! Sounds like you set a goal and nailed it. You should be pumped up and proud.
