I have still been struggling with my eating although it is getting better. I decided that I wanted to set a goal to work towards exercise wise. I have been getting the exercise in but have had to fight myself to get to the Y. I'm not sure what is going on with that but it is making me mad. I have stopped gaining wait and have started going back down on the scale. I had gained about 15 lbs back and that has really been bothering me.
So back to the exercise goal. I have always wanted to do a 5K as well as a triathlon. I am in no way in good enough shape to accomplish either of those. So I was thinking of one I could do. I thought maybe if I combined the two, and made the exercise mostly water based I could do it. I brought the idea to the y to see if they would possibly be interested in doing something like that. I am hoping they will be but if not I can still do it myself. I think I am going to start in the fitness room on a stationary bike. I can do the most on that and then move to the water. I can walk a mile in the lazy river and then swim a mile in the lap pool. I think it would be great for other disabled people, people with weight issues and older people who aren't in the best of shape.
I still haven't lost my motivation but I do feel it starting to fade in strength. I think this would help to reinforce that motivation and keep it strong. What have you done to keep motivation when you feel it leaving you? I struggle with this often do you?
