First Week - Determination
Saturday, December 29, 2012
First week on HMR, I found SparkPeople and am keeping the motivation going. I am so happy that my quick start week I was able to lose 6.6 lbs and am starting slowly to increase my excerising.
Exercising has always been a problem for me, never seemed motivated enought to stick with it but this time I am going to! I have made my goal for myself to run a 5k this fall in memory of my baby sister. This means a lot to me and I am going to do it!
I have some support from some people in my life, however I do have one person that seems to be negative. I mention exercising and I get a "yeah right" or something that always seems to be a put down. Use to I would let this get to me and I would give up...but no more!! I am using that as a "I will show you" kind of attitude to give me more determination! I will prove them wrong!
Last year I set some New Year Resolutions and thought I did not succeed that no one ever sticks with them. Well I am the type to write mine down and guess what I did follow through on one of the major ones! I may not have stuck with it in January but through out the year I did take the steps to stop smoking and have been smoke free for over 18 weeks now! I have made that big change in my life so I know I can make even more!
