I actually went to the gym!

Monday, July 22, 2013

I have been in such a weird place in my head for several weeks now. I haven't been eating right and I haven't been working out at all. I've taken Daughter to the pool a few times and swam laps while she goofed off, but other than that, nothing. Of course just about every single moment of every single day I am thinking, "Really? When are you going to get back on track?" and pointing out every single bad decision I'm making. It's been really weird. It's never been like this before. Today I had to drop Daughter at an appointment (which I knew would only be an hour at the most), so I decided that would be a good time to go workout. I went to the gym and worked out on the Pre-Cor (elliptical) for 30 minutes. I burned 318 calories! (SparkPeople's fitness tracker is really inaccurate -- whatever the equipment at the gym says, SP's tracker is always off by dozens of calories, either in one direction or the other, but I enter it anyway to show myself what I've done). I must admit, it feels good. I'm proud of myself that I worked out. I have been so danged resistant lately and I need to get rid of all that. It's so not good for me. I have had this huge weight hanging over me lately. It's like I can actually feel this pressure all over my body, from the anxiety of all this. I have sixty pounds to lose, and I know I won't get to my goal if I don't put forth any effort. So far, today has been a good day, I have kept to my goals far! Today isn't over yet! it's only 3:23pm so there is still loads of time to screw things up. But I'm just going to keep taking it bit by bit, and keep moving forward.

    Your are hilarious! You did it though and stick with that....just keep with that mode of thought that made you do it in the first place, even if it was impulsive...that's how I work best....
