Week 4 perspective - I feel much better for it!

Tuesday, January 29, 2013

I'm into week 4 of the active lifestyle - which is working well. Despite being hard work at times. Not rationing the food - that's been great, I've been eating mindfully, exactly what I want, not too much, mostly plants, and clean all round. I feel much better for it!

Going to the gym 4 times a week for circuit classes or elliptical workouts has been tough. For some reason I thought that 2 weeks of circuits would restore my fitness to the point where the class is a breeze. What I had forgotten was that fitness is a moving goal, and it will keep shifting to higher aspirations as I go along. Yesterday was the first class where - with some relief - I felt some exercises were easier. I still look purple, hot and large in the mirror, but it feels different. I'm definitely toning up. I feel much better for it!

What a difference!

So what's hard about this? There is something about my pre-occupation with this website that disturbs me - the fact that I don't want to socialise until my food is tracked, that I am aware of how much of my free time I spend measuring, tracking and exercising. I do hope this changes eventually, or I will be a very boring person to be around...

    Always good to put 'you' first!

  I don't like socializing either until my food and exercise is tracked. That, to me, is the most important part of this. I say keep up the good work.

    I have to say I don't think its a bad thing that you enter your food first or spend time on this site. You are making an investment in yourself - at least that's how I see it. Its good to make time for the things that motivate you and help you.
