It is too hot to exercise . It is a reason but I know it is also just an excuse. I had been doing my exercising in my computer room of which there is no cooling. Bringing a fan in, only moves around hot air. When I am up early (always) I need to do exercizes instead of getting on SP.

I will follow the lead of another SP friend (Sheila) and make a public commitment:
"Starting today.....Sunday, July 7th.......I will do my exercizes every day, heat or no heat."
Oh, NO!!! what did I just do? emoticon

I was feeling proud and confident. Now I feel sluggish and weighted down. I have not exercised in about 3 weeks and I know that is why I feel this way.

I have started eating some sweets and to be is only 4:00 a/m....husband is asleep...I am up and just had a snack size bag of m&ms ..why did I do that? Not starting my day off very well, am I?

I will commit to more sweets other than fruits . I have had enough . I want to feel energetic again. Is it the heat????? NO...just another excuse

    I like Leslie Sansone too and do the mile walk early in the morning. Do you live in Arizona? I know how hot it can get there even in the White Mountains before I moved here to Utah a year ago. It has been unusually hot here too. The heat saps a persons energy for sure. God bless you in your resolves to exercise.

    Callie Girl,
    OK you blew it -- now don't beat yourself up! It's over. Throw out the rest of the junk -- don't keep it in the house. That way you would have to go out to get it. I love potato chips with a passion -- but I know better to keep them in the house -- because I WILL eat them. It's just the way it is! You can have them but when you choose to and make that decision -- not just in a weak moment at 4 am. I am not telling you anything you don't know but I do care about how you are doing.

    It's hotter than you know what out here too. I agree about getting to the mall to walk -- or would that not work with DH? I know you will get past this quickly as you are such a consistent gal and have your stuff together. You have helped me so much and are such an encourager. I am sending you some hugs so you'll feel better!

    Oh Callie, If I started sweets at 4am, I'd be on a sugar and calorie high until I went to bed because I would have had the (WRONG) mentality that I'd ruined my day, week, month, year, and life. That'd be my excuse to keep on going with the sweets. But writing it down shows me just how silly that thinking is (dangerous too!).

    And you made a commitment to me to work out and YOU DID IT!!!!!!!!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great blog, i so appreciate your honesty, openness, committment, goals...
    U can do this girl. U have done it before.
    we all get off track. The key is to come back. Thats part of what we all do here, encourage each other to not give up.
    Start back little by little, 10 minutes of exercise a day...
    cut out one unhealthy food...
    u can do it, i'm rootin for u.
    Ps. I exercise first thing in the morning (after coffee and Jesus time) that way i do not procrastinate as the day gets hot and busy.

    I need to follow your lead: get up early and exercise before I get on SP. Once I sit down I lose my drive and energy. I also hate the heat (especially humidity) but I know we can work around it. Good luck. emoticon

    You can do this! It's still so early there, don't count today as a loss just because its hot and you had the m&ms. Can you go for a walk sometime soon, before it gets too hot? Then maybe you'll have time to get a shower in, too,before the day really begins.

    God bless. You CAN do this!

    Heat is extremely draining both physically and mentally. Perhaps you and your hubby could go to a air conditioned Mall and get a nice walk in. We have to find different ways to exercise in the heat. Use the stairs whenever possible. And remember always to keep hydrated. That is so important always but especially in the summer with the extreme heat you are having. Take care of you dear one. emoticon I believe in you. Tender Hug,Pat
