I really haven't been doing a good job of keeping up with stuff this year.
When I workout...especially running...I feel great. It is just getting myself to do it.
Also I've slacked on the portion control too :(
I've put on about 4 lbs thanks to my inattention to my food diary and lack of regular exercise. Not good... I know.
It is tough to have sensible sized portions when what you REALLY want is the BIG plate of mashed potatoes or etc.
So, I am scaling back my goals for the short term to try and stop sabotaging myself.
Right now I want to get back into weight training and I want stick with my half aerobics/half running routine for at least four days per week.
If I can just kick my own booty into getting up and moving I love love love the way running makes me feel.
I do have to wonder if some people are just hard-wired to prefer sedentary activities to exercise?!
The fitness instruction people seem to genuinely LOVE working out and being active. Whereas I, even after all of the hardwork last year, I am drawn to being still and quiet and knitting, reading, etc... and gaining weight evidently...
