One Step Back and 2 Steps Forward!

Sunday, February 17, 2013

I re-gained 1 pound this week.
With the stress I have had this week I was very sure I had gained much more than that back. I am well pleased with only a 1 pound gain and I intend to push forward this week with my water aerobics and chair exercises.
I failed to go to the pool at all this last week. I realized that I depend to much on the people around me. I use to do everything on my own when I was younger. Store runs, the kids, the yard work, EVERYTHING! My husband was military and gone a lot. My father was a truck driver and mom was the same way, always doing everything herself but for some reason I have found myself dependent on others to do ANYTHING now.
Yesterday I made the comment that we (my DD and I) had failed in our quest to go to the pool 5 days this last week. She made the comment that I was an adult and she couldn't hold my hand and take me to the pool (well maybe not those same words but the same meaning).
Sad thing is that she is right........
So I am grabbing my pants and yanking myself back up again.
Water Aerobics Here I Come!

    Your blog made me smile and feel so very proud of you. I understand completely how we can become dependent on others to help get us going (especially when it comes to fitness). But, you are right...we all need to be our own best motivators and not wait for others to do that for us. Congrats on your renewed motivation! I will hope to read soon about how the water aerobics went for you.

    It still can be good to have others to help keep us going. If your DD is not going to go to the pool regularly with you, I wonder if there is someone else from the class that you might team up with for some accountability? Just a thought.

    Good for you, Deb! You can do this.....That pound could just be a little water weight. You are doing great! Keep moving forward. So grab those pants and have some fun. ((HUGS))
