Why do I do it?
Saturday, November 24, 2012
Steadily losing weight for me is not easy. I take a few pounds off and then I put a few on. There are different reasons why I put back the weight, stress, boredom, but mainly it boils down to the same thing, going back to old eating and exercise habits. I know better, I have read many articles about this same thing so why do I do it?
I am not perfect, no one is. We all make mistakes in this journey to get healthier. How does it go one step backwards two steps forward. I learn from my mistakes and go on. I am going to get healthy that is what I really want more then any thing in life.
Every day I get up and log in to Spark People to learn more and more about how to do just that. I read about nutrition, fitness, wellness and motivation. I learn some thing new and I use it in my day to day living. I check in to my Spark teams and get support from the members. I check my activity feed and see what my Spark friends are doing and read blogs they have written. I check my blog to see the comments from members then I thank them for their support. This is part of my journey.
Most every day I check out new fitness videos, on Spark People and do at least three 10 minute ones. I find them easy to do and fun. I want to do strength training 3x a week but find myself going days with out doing it. I don't know why I do this, I have given myself excuses after excuse but it just doesn't help. I keep asking myself why? Why?
The answer always boils down to I am not perfect, who is?
