Aint it funny...

Friday, July 12, 2013

That as soon as I set a goal to exercise at least 30 minutes every day this week...I no longer had the drive to do it?

I don't know maybe it was TOM showing up and making my whole body ache, maybe it was seeing the scale rise because of water weight AND bad food choices.

MAYBE I just have something wrong with me in my head that is working against me?

My work schedule has been all over the place, mornings...nights...blah! I have slipped into soda again, but not a lot. Got to get back on the water!

I know what I have to do, just doing it is the hard part.

At least my daughter has started watching what she's eating and has been exercising to get back into shape after the baby. She was really worrying me and I didn't know how to handle it or what to say to her to make her care. I do not want her to get big like I am.

* Totally hear the frustration. I've been there,

" She was really worrying me and I didn't know how to handle it or what to say to her to make her care. I do not want her to get big like I am. "
* If I had kids, that would scare me. emoticon

    I hear ya - why is it that as soon as we verbalize a goal or a success we immediately do the opposite? Crazy! You know what to do and you will do it. I'm glad your daughter is making an effort now - I have the same concern about my niece - she has gained significant weight in the past 6 months and I want to encourage her to do something about it but I don't want her to think I am disappointed in her or picking on her. Especially since I don't see her very often. I can remember people telling me in my late teens that I needed to watch what I was eating because one day it would catch up with me and they were right, but I didn't want to hear it then - you know, cause young adults don't want to be told what to do! Well, good luck to you encouraging your daughter and getting your own goals accomplished too! XO

    I understand your feelings about your working out goal. I'm the same way. I've been telling myself I need to start working out if I want to keep losing weight but I always found an excuse (too hot, didn't want to be seen by others, etc.). A couple days ago I decided if I wasn't willing to walk outside, I'd walk inside. So, I tuned into a show I really wanted to see, stood in front of the TV and walked in place. I can't say I love doing it but at least I'm entertained! I hope you find what works for you!
