I am week two into my trying again healthy lifestyle.
I am setting weekly goals and blogging about them-- thanks to a SP friend! Last week was successful. I lost 3 pounds. I think that had more to do with drinking my water everyday and not colas. I also was more conscious of what I was eating.
I didn't walk like I needed to though. I only walked one time. My goal for this week was to walk 4 times. I have walked any yet!
I am working on my motivation to walk. I do not know why I am not walking! I do enjoy walking once I start. I enjoy listening to my music. I enjoy having the time to myself to think and pray. But I just have not done it.
... why am I giving myself excuses?? No more!
I have my workout clothes packed and ready to go for this afternoon, so that I have no excuses! If it is raining, then I will use one of my dvds. So there, a plan with a back-up. I'm ready.
I read several blogs this morning that have given me motivation. Thank you SP friends and team members who are so positive and encouraging. That's what I need--- to know that people are going through the same issues that I am, and that they are choosing to live healthy and reaching their goals. They are walking. They are exercising. I can too!
I want to reach my goals. In order to do that. I have to walk.
I am determined to get it done!
I tell my students at school that I can only show them what they need to learn, but that they have to take responsibility and learn it for themselves. I can't learn it for them.
It sounds like I need to practice what I preach! No one can walk for me. No one can lose this weight for me. I have to do it for myself.
I have to walk.
I have to drink my water.
I have to eat the right foods.
I will post a reply tonight.... after I go for my walk.
