Perhaps there is hope...?

Saturday, August 18, 2012

Each day this week I exercised before work. I alternated 1.5 miles biking one day, walking another. Not a sterling exercise program, but one I know I can do consistently. My ankles and arches start to really hurt when I embark on any new exercise regime, but doing this little bit and taking the pressure off my feet on biking days really makes it doable. I have new shoes coming! The brand new support on the new pair will help.
I have kept an eye on my weight this week. At one point it appeared that I lost a half a pound. I think I gained it back with the past two days of sweets. I gave myself permission to have just one mini box of milk duds, my blood sugar spiked, and I have been feeding that sugar high ever since.
Not today though! I am going to continue with the good habits I was practicing all week.
On the down side, I feel like losing the weight is a HUGE undertaking, that I will never be able to do it. My recent experience shows me losing and then gaining it back plus 10 more. I am trying not to get discouraged and give up.
On the UP SIDE you would not BELIEVE the purpose, energy, positive mood, and clarity of thought I had all week after exercising every morning! I think I have finally found the right balance of activity. In the past I over did and felt only the negative effects of overdoing. Plus I slept better. If I can come to the same balance with my eating, I think I could sustain a healthy lifestyle on into the future, without giving up because I feel exhausted or hungry.
Perhaps there is hope?

* Totally can. Exercise has had a really healthy effect on me when I've been consistent.

Continued success to you!

Look at YOU!! emoticon

SO there IS hope. No 'perhaps' about it!

Iím hopeless at balance! I'm an all or nothing person! So I totally understand. However, I AM working on it. So, plainly, are YOU.

None of it is easy but we just have to keep at it until it comes good and even in the case of difficulty in finding computer time, which I also understand.

Will be thinking of you
