Well, last week I struggled with eating, and starting last Friday I didn't even log my food over the weekend.
This week has continued to be difficult, but I have at least made a point of logging all my eating, horrible as it may be. The calorie totals are high! I suppose it's a good thing for me to be shocked out of this and back into making better choices. One thing that's making this worse than it could be is that it's not just eating junky food, it's eating too many portions of it.
I've also been slacking on exercise. The nice weather has made me want to spend time outdoors. Yes, I ride my bike a short distance to the train station each day, and I walk some more to get to my office. And I walk the dog. And I did some gardening this past weekend. But no formal exercise. And since I stopped doing classes at the park district, I find I miss them. Yes, I like doing my recorded Body Electric workouts in my basement, but I don't quite have the self-discipline to do them frequently enough. So I confirm, yet again, that group exercise classes on a fixed day and time (forced discipline) work best for me. I'm going to get back to those.
This is my Friday. :) I'm taking tomorrow - Thursday - off work, and then Friday I'm going on a weekend getaway with a friend. We will do a bike tour one day (not much cycling involved, only about 10 miles) and just explore the area on the other day. I will pack my bathing suit just in case we decide to go to the beach or use the hotel swimming pool, but I'm not looking forward to being seen by myself or others in it...
Wish I could say something more positive... not this week thought. I do know that the path to health and fitness is waiting for me to find it again! I can do it!
