warning....boring alert....I'm trying to refocus myself yet AGAIN...
I've been in such a rut lately and am having trouble climbing out. No real reason...just kind of "meh". Lately being a couple months. I was so close to my next goal of weighing under 200lbs in March...and then I zoomed back up. I sat at 210 for a while, down to 206, back up to 208. I need to get this weight loss ball rolling back downhill. But...how to do this. Sigh. That is always the tricky part.
I've been thinking a lot about this in the last few days and, for me, it really comes down to consistency. OK, not exactly an earth shattering revelation. Add some motivation to that....sustained motivation and consistency.
I need to stop thinking / planning and just freaking DO IT!
I have a new interval training app---USE IT
I have a gym membership with classes--USE IT
I've been exercising almost daily--but not always really pushing myself. The recumbent bike is great for adding up miles for the 2012 challenge but I also need to pick up the intensity. I have a body bugg and I have it all charged up and on my arm (key!). I need to use this tool to help get me moving.
It is the first few steps / first couple minutes that I have such a hard time overcoming. Once I'm moving I do great. But...WOW...do I have trouble getting started. Maybe this will change with time but I'm definitely not there yet!
I'm setting the bar high for this first month as I have a couple important events!
20th High School Reunion is June 16th
Wedding Dress Fitting is June 22nd
I want to be under 200 by the dress fitting....will be hard but I want to really focus on this goal as it means a lot mentally/emotionally. Such a silly thing to be so attached to a number....but this is something I've been fighting with for a while so I'm going to focus right on that number and make it happen.
Rawr. That is how I feel right now....and I need to figure out a way within me to keep this motivation. Rawr.......
