Day #12 of 27 - slump, slouch, slacking

Thursday, September 12, 2013

No gym again...but I have been consistently doing some strength training for my upper body. Having the weights laying around I just pick them up and hit a set here and there. I even did a set before I walked out the house this morning. By a set I mean I do 2 sets of 10 or 12 reps of one exercise and sometimes two different moves. I've just haven't had it in me to workout these past few days. I think its the weather. I just want to go home and get out of the rain, the rainy roads and crazy drivers. I'm going to really give it a try today or at least make myself workout at home. I've gotten in such a slump I haven't even changed my clothes before leaving work so that's really bad. I've had the same outfit in my bag since last Thursday!!! Shameful... emoticon emoticon

Eating/journal: yes and yes I did good on both yesterday
Water: Down yesterday - my work habits or visitors mess up my water drinking a lot these days.

Otherwise I'm doing good. I decided to take my tummy measurements this morning since I was standing there and saw the tape measure I did it. I'm down .5 in my waist - woohoo. My upper tummy is still the same but woohoo for change. Scale probably ain't moving but in due time.

At this rate I won't meet my September goal unless I do some serious calorie control and hard core workouts from now until the 30th. I'm almost half-way through my challenge and I haven't even kicked it into 2nd gear yet. I need some motivation, get up and go, a swift kick, push, shove and just Lord help me!!!

Alright I'm done whining now it's time to get serious.

Got to pray on this today ---I'm losing focus and that's NOT going to happen. This is for life and I will get myself together TODAY!!!

    Everyone gets distracted and off track for a minute. You have taken the first step to get back on track. You acknowledged it. And the second step, too. Prayer. With strong faith and belief, I know that you will meet your goals.

    Great work! Keep it up. With weights laying around, sometimes when I don't make it to the gym, I try this trick (it works pretty good too) I do arm exercises during commercial breaks, march or jog in place. Commercials are in 3 minute segments (from 30 sec to 1 min).

    I make sure I put tennis shoes on too. This way I am more apt to move-with flip flops or slippers I tend to lounge and not move as much. Don't fall into the "I do something later", I find later doesn't come.

    Don't look back-look ahead! You can do this!! Keep moving forward.

    Praying that this slump leaves you today. Today is a new day-"All things are possible through Christ who strengthens me."
