Being honest with myself

Monday, March 11, 2013

For the past 2 weeks, I've been tracking my food and eating healthy good stuff.....most of the time. Unless something upsets me, where I suddenly indulge myself with something. I've been doing 10 minutes of SparkVideos here, 15 minutes of walking there. Unless I get tired/sleepdeprived/have a cold/don't plan ahead enough/feel sore. You get the pattern.

I'm going to stop lying to myself. The reality is, I'm not doing it consistently enough to really make a difference. I was starting off gradually but I need to go ahead and make the commitment-just stick to the plan. Stick to it every day, starting today.
I know there will be interruptions and obstacles but with all the encouragement from my SparkFriends I can get around them.
Daylight savings time is going to be the first obstacle I can think of, right off the bat. I did get up and exercise this morning, 30 minutes with a medicine ball (core exercises) but I'm waiting with some trepidation to see how I feel after work and especially tomorrow morning. Lord how I hate feeling tired!! Somehow I'm going to have to learn to tolerate it without whining.

    As long as the afterworkout feeling is achey, but not painful, you are GOLDEN! Good going on the medicine ball workout. They are harder than many people think!

    I hear ya on the itty bitty workout thing. I was lying to myself for awhile, too. Although they do get ya up, get ya moving, get that blood circulating and stretches the muscles, you seem to see faster, more significant results when you commit and do regular, target heartrate cardio or strength training for 30+ minute chunks per day. IMHO.
