Use it or Lose it! :(

Tuesday, October 16, 2012

Oh my word, it is so discouraging to see how much ground can be lost in such a short amount of time. My last real run was June 20th. My last real Crossfit or strength workout of any sort was in July. Now that I have been "cleared" to start exercising again...I am having a hard time finding it in me. I have gained 10 pounds with my comfort foods and my lousy attitude and my pants are getting too tight. I am miserable. You would think that would be all of the motivation that I need. Heck, I thought I would just jump right back up when they said I could workout! Nope...I get out there and I get started and I just want to quit. I have to quit trying to pick up where I left off, but it sucks that I lost so much so quickly - stamina, attitude, strength...

I threw on ankle weights and forced myself through a WHOLE 1.5 mile walk/jog. I know I need to quit being negative and just start doing again... Maybe it is just because I am tired. Maybe if I get off of this computer and get to sleep, I will have the time/energy to do some P90X tonight. That will make me feel a little better, I am sure. I definitely know I need to get these arms back in shape!

It took me three months to gain it. It is up to me how long it takes to lose it!! One day at a time...

    Some one once told me, to take my exercise minute by minute. Dont be negative, just get started and I promise, you will sail through. Just keep pushing.

    YES, you do need to quit being negative. It takes time to recovery from anything. Start out slow and then make small progress! emoticon

    Don't be too hard on yourself. Your body is going to need some time to get back into shape. You just need to ease back into your exercise routine and be patient with your body. Like you said, it took you three months to gain it, you aren't going to lose it overnight (IF ONLY IT WERE THAT EASY!) Hang in there...
