Restart Week 1. Learning Lessons.

Monday, July 01, 2013

It's been a re-learning week for me. I am pretty much re-training my brain to stop eating so much and stop being lazy.

I did decent on the eating most of the days. Friday was our 5th wedding anniversary and we went to Tumbleweed where we ate and drank way more than we needed. I was miserable. Lesson: Put down the fork.

I didn't work out at all last week. I felt like a blob of yuck. Lesson: Get off the couch.

Today my son and I walked for an hour. We covered 2.77 miles. I felt great. Lesson: Moving Feels Good.

It's baby steps for me. I don't want to rush into this and burn out after a week. But I also don't want to keep making excuses about why I am not doing what I need to do. Lesson: Just keep swimming.

    I am starting over right now with you!! It really does help to know that sooooo many other people with real lives, real families, real food struggles, are fighting right along with me. And like you...I've had amazing weight loss and gain so many times my head is spinning. I don't know why I let it creep back on because NEVER do I feel as beautiful, strong, healthy and vibrant as I do when I am eating well and working out and down to my goal weight (which is currently over 40 pounds away)...BUT we have been there and lived there and can live there again, right??? Let's do this already!

    AWESOME. Seriously. That is a great lesson. It is SO hard to start and even harder to start over. You are doing what you need to, and instead of beating yourself up, you are LEARNING from each circumstance. Good for you. That is how it starts.
