This morning I am looking back at the past few weeks and realize I have been doing a terrible job. I only have 98 days until I turn 40 and I still have 45.5 pounds to go. I will need to loose 1/2 pound every day to get to my goal. I know this will probably not happen and I will not beat myself up over it.
Saturday I took my friend to the Y w/me and we swam for just over 2 hours. She was telling me how impressed she was w/the Y and she is going to try to convince her BF to join. She made the comment on how she would go at least every other day. I remember telling my DH I would go every day if we signed up. Well, we signed up 2 weeks ago and I have been 2x counting Saturday. The funny thing is, just that morning I was thinking how much I really enjoyed yoga and pondering why I don't do it every day. I mean, I have over 12 different yoga exercises on video/disc and 2 mats, plus bands and blocks. What's stopping me? As we were walking across the parking lot, I realized I have been getting in my own way again! I have all these resources. I pay for the Y and I have a mini gym in my own home- in addition to the yoga stuff, I have a treadmill, stability ball, gazelle and probably 15 more videos, plus this website- I need to use what I have. I don't understand why I have such a hard time getting to it when I actually enjoy most of it. I love to swim, and I love yoga. I actually enjoy my treadmill! Carpe Diem! I will hopefully be going back to work soon and I need to jump on this chance while I can. Even though today is one of those days where my vision is super bad and I am on day 14 of this headache, I can not let it stop me. I am going to do some yoga and then call my neighbor and ask her to drive me to the Y. 98 days to go and time to really buckle down. This week I am going to commit to the firecrackers and do all I can to stay within my calories and to push for 120+, but do at least 60 minutes a day of exercise. 40, here I come.
