Woo, day two.
I rode my bike to work today. It was fantastic. There was a point in time where I couldn't do anything without my bike. For some reason I lost that need. I think it's partially because of my boyfriend. He's not as bike happy as I am (I just need to get him a bike and he'll remember his childhood happiness) which puts a damper on bike riding. I think I just need to claim my independence with workouts, especially in the evening.
Does anyone else have that problem? If I end up going to the gym while I'm at work, I have no problem going/doing that without him. But if it's at home, especially on the topic of bike riding, I feel bad leaving him out. I guess there are other things that he can do, or we can solve the problem by getting him a bike, but I still feel guilty. He's also only weighs about 10 more pounds than I do, so he doesn't NEED to work out. He just does it for health.
Anyway, I was going to ride my bike home today, but being in the mountains of PA, the weather doesn't always cooperate. Instead I got a ride home, went to the movies, and ate too much popcorn. When does one begin to develop self control?
So when did it click with you? When did you say to yourself, that's it, I'm not going to eat this piece of candy, or this popcorn, I'm just going to enjoy this movie for what it's worth, or pretend like I'm not bored. It's hard. I'm weak. I'm not sure what to do.
I also make myself feel really guilty afterwards. I just need to realize that a little more hard work will go a long way. My birthday is only 3 months away and I would love to look awesome. Losing 10lbs/toning, at least to some extent, is not impossible by then. I could come a far way, I just need to DO IT.
So, new friends that I don't really even know, can you help keep me accountable for achieving this dream?
Thanks in advance.
Also, here are the pictures I meant to post yesterday. I think I am going to, starting Sunday, take weekly pictures and measurements so I can see for myself how my hard work, or lack there of, changes my body in a weeks time. I apologize in advance for the grossness of these pictures, but I really think they will help.
