For 3 days now I've worked out on my elliptical machine. I've also done sit ups for 2 out of those 3 days (every other day routine). I've limited my intake of food also. Hoping this can be the start of getting back on track. At one time I was obsessed with working out. I made it the number one priority in my life. It came before all else. I had a change in my routine aka vacation that got me of track and haven't been able to recapture that motivation. At times, I've told myself that I don't want to be obsessed like that again but now I feel like I'd rather have that obsession and be healthy than not be obsessed with working out and be overweight. Now, I've know people that were obsessed with working out and I'm not talking hours multiple times a day. My obsession was 60 minutes a day and I think that's reasonable. Everyone's body is different and you have to find what works for you but that was something that worked for me. I saw results and I want results again. It's a lot of work. There is a lot of battling going on in my head. Sure, I'd rather do anything else but workout but that won't get me results. Told my younger son to hold me accountable. I have to give him $1 every day that I don't do my 60 minutes. He was excited about the idea! Praying I will meet my goal in April. If I do, I will be the first time I've ever made the weight loss goals I've set. I've had different goals over the years. Two years ago, I met my goal of not gaining over the summer which tends to be a major challenge for me but I did it! and it felt good! Another goal is to get back into my prom dress that I wore in 2010. It was a goal accomplished just being able to fit into it in the 1st place! :) We need to remember that even though there are many bumps in the road, there are also many rewards along the way!
