I started looking back at old blog entries to find some of my motivation again, and WOW. I was awesome. What happened??? LOL I did stuff like make exercise my top priority, get up early if I had to, take over the living room and work out in front of my hubby if I had to, take my own healthy snacks to a movie, etc. I was feeling awesome. I was so focused and strong and bubbling over with happiness and confidence and awe in myself. It was great to read. The only down thing was realizing I just got my weight back up to where I was a year ago. It makes me feel like I wasted the last year. That was a harsh reality check. Ouch.
So. I'm going to keep this brief, but exercise needs to become a priority again. Tracking and getting creative and making sure I stay in my limits with food needs to become a priority again. And, I think I need to blog every day or two. I used to do daily summaries of my life essentially. Now I'm in the mindset of "is it really important? do they need to know that?" but when I think about it, the blogging daily helped ME. It helped me not only be accountable, but really think about the failures and successes of the day, it gave me a space to plan for upcoming challenges ( I do well thinking through things as I'm writing/typing). So that's another thing that needs to become a priority. I keep feeling so tired and like I don't get enough sleep, but maybe it's simply because all of this has been slipping. So instead of trying to sleep in every day because I don't have to be up, maybe I should just get up and get a workout in or get a healthy breakfast, then workout in, first thing. It's so easy to think I can work out at any time throughout the day now, so it's easy to say "later" and then it doesn't happen. I need to make it happen early in the morning. So that's my current idea/plan. I will write out something more concrete, just wanted to write this as I was feeling it. That's what the me of a year ago would have done. ;)
