Today...I am trying to get back on track after a long hectic emotional week at work last week and an enjoyable weekend in Toronto.
Yesterday I was all set to come home and get on the tm for an hour and just kinda unwind....but on the way home...I don't know what happened...just right before I got 2 miles down the road...I just came up with the I am too tired to exercise today....and I didn't....and now....
I feel guilty for not because there was no reason not too except I would much rather be lazy and not workout than just doing it....that being said....
LAZY....most definitely not my favorite word...but when it comes to me and working out...I can think of every excuse in the book not to....and the bottom line is after looking at all the excuses I come up with....only 1 really matters ....I am lazy.
And that needs to change....TODAY! Today...i am not going to be lazy anymore. I am going to make an excuse every day to GET on the tm or the elliptical...not excuses to avoid it. Today is my brand new me day.
Today is the day I need to start really paying attention to the reasons I eat and the reasons I don't want to exercise. If i am truely hurting from a long day at work...then maybe I won't exercise that day...but that is the only reason I really need to miss a workout.
I have super goals I want to meet and I need to get my head in the right place to meet them.
Just so you know...I want to lose 80 lbs ( I 14 1/2 months. April 10 2014 I want to weigh between 175 and 185. That a big in between but that is where I want to be....179. That is my goal. I am not sure of the weeks or days in between but I am looking at it coming faster than I can imagine....No I am not getting married or anything like that...but I am taking a vacation.
And it's a vacation I have wanted for a very long time. We went to Cozumel in Sept. 2007. It was absolutely amazing. I weighed 217 when we were there then. I have always wanted to go back. Now some of our family is getting together and all taking a vacation there and I want to go without being self conscious about the way I look. Actually...I want to look really good in a swimsuit....I doubt that I would ever wear a bikini....but I want to know that I could if I wanted too....ya know....
Anyway...thats my goal. How do I plan on getting there...well....lots of exercise...lots of water...lots of fruit and veggies....and lots of motivation from myself.
I have my own gym right here at home...I have a body elliptical and a treadmill (tm)
and 5lb weights and an exercise mat.
So I have everything I need to make it happen....I just need to get to it.
I will post on here how I do.
I started on Jan. 1st weighing 262.2 and today I weigh 255. Now I just need the next 75 to come off.
I am just going to take this one day at a time with small goals so I can try and keep on track.
If anyone reads this and has advice for me....please leave me a comment or email me as I can use all the help I can get.

    Way to go, girl! Being motivated to start is the first step...and it's totally's been just over a year and I'm down 62 lbs, just by tracking food and exercise. It turns out if you eat right and exercise, you lose weight, just like they always told us. Keep up the good work, and do not be tempted to be frustrated when you don't see a lot of change in the scale...slow and sure is the best way.

    It seems like the hardest time to work out is when I've taken time off. Don't beat yourself, just move forward. I try to workout in the morning, that way I'm not likely to talk myself out of it. When I have to work out after work, I plan it in the morning and then I refuse to think about it. I focus on what my plans are after the workout. I don't give myself that opening for the little voice in my head to say, "I'm too tired". Think of it as a job or obligation rather than an option. Focus on the end result; what you will look like and how you will feel after losing the weight. Stay positive and keep on pushing! Good luck - you can do it! emoticon
