So when I woke up yesterday morning, I was (emotionally) drained. Husband went camping with some guy friends, and they went to a concert last night as well. Daughter and I spent the day hiking, swimming at the lake, picnicking, then going for a swim at the pool. I swam half a mile and she played. We were really enjoying our Girls' Day! We ordered in some veggie sushi, made pink drinks and watched Top Gun. She and I both slept in my bed together and it was just really nice. It was exactly what I needed. Today we got up, went and cleaned a house, then came home and had lunch. It's not even 5pm yet. It's been a really nice weekend. I've been thinking about going back to the gym and getting back on my healthy eating plan tomorrow. I've been way, way off track the past few weeks. I have to drop Daughter off at an appointment tomorrow morning and I was thinking about going then. I could get in a 30 minute workout and that would be good for day one. I'm a bit afraid to commit to starting again (to actually saying that I want to start again), because of all my numerous failures. There are also many reasons I'm afraid to try again, afraid to succeed, etc. But I know in my heart I can't give up; nor do I want to. So we'll see. Tomorrow is a brand-new day.

    Overcoming that initial inertia is the hardest thing! Another option is to start really small so it's doable and sustainable, and then increase when your body tells you to - so, how about 10 minutes/day as an intiial goal instead? Every little bit counts!

    emoticon It's hard to restart, again and again (for me at least), but you're still here and still pushing and we will succeed!
