keeping my goal in sight

Sunday, February 03, 2013

Hello all-
Today I went to the gym again and did my 10 minutes on the recumbent bike. It was a lot harder today to get the minutes in. I found myself having a fight in my mind with my body. I had to use some Jillian Michaels training to myself. "You can do this, push it go the time you have as a goal." I finished the time then did 3 minutes of cooldown. I want to get myself motivated and push it to lose this weight and cut my fat off my abdominal area. I can not tolerate doing sit ups yet from my pedulas stomach. So I am working on something I know I can do ... the recumbent bike. I hope to eventually get 10 more minutes in and work by increments. I also did 10 minutes on the treadmill at 2 mph 0 incline. whew!!! What a hard day today. I got really tired at 5 minutes but I pushed on thru to 10 minutes with a 3 minute cooldown. Again I had to fight the desire to quit... it was very hard. I had to tell myself this too shall pass and I will soon be doing the 10 minutes as a warm up. I did not feel so confident today as I was in the beginning of my first gym day. My mind kept rolling threw thoughts of I can never get into shape ,I couldn't see myself ever jogging on a treadmill. It was then that I had to fake it til I made it. I had to tell myself you have to start somewhere. I will eventually get into better condition and laugh at myself for thinking I would not be able to make 10 minute walks. I felt good when I left the gym 26 minutes later my goals complete. I just have to keep my goals in sight. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
