Again, I am reminded that I lack consistency. I plan and plan, but fall short in the execution of my plans. This is so discouraging.
Is it self-sabotage, I think it may be. Whatever it is, I need to overcome "It". I was so excited to reach the 150's, but have inched back up to 160.
There has been something in the back of my mind and I am now going to do it, it certainly can't hurt.
With the arrival of cold weather and Daylight Savings Time, my outdoor activities are limited. Today I have an appointment with a trainer at out local gym. Over the last 2 years I have noticed a loss of muscle, which is natural as you age, but it has made me feel weak and unsteady. I feel intimidated at the gym because I don't know what to do with all of the equipment and I need more than the treadmill and the stair climber.
My trainer says that she has many clients in my situation. I believe that she will be able to point me in the right direction, the rest is up to me.
* I need to get past the idea that taking time to exercise is selfish.
* Strength training is not just for men.
* I am worth the time spent caring for my physical well-being.
I am looking forward to starting a new plan.
I am looking forward to feeling stronger and healthier.
The time is now!
