The Reckoning- what am I doing?

Wednesday, October 23, 2013

It's ok, & just part of my fitness journey-

but I fell off the fitness track- although I've been pretty good about tracking meals & staying within my limit (albeit at the top of my caloric intake)
& not eating junk,
I am still at a plateau- the same one I've been on for over a year & a half.

Someone asked me, so what changed?
& I have to say- the gym.

I did not think the gym was that important, because I was walking so much, but I just do not do the strength training I need to do at home.
& my mornings have become very lazy & undisciplined.

I am SUPER lucky to have Mon-Thus mornings free, so why am I squandering them in bed playing around on my iphone?

Good question.

So, anyhow- this morning I walked 2.22 miles with my old friend Bonnie- we both have around 15 lbs to lose, & we live in the same neighborhood.
If I cut 200 calories off my caloric intake, & walk 3 x a week- we should be at goal in 3 months.

I have 5 months to hit my goal- I was picked to play SXSW in March.
I do NOT want to be fat just in case Rolling Stone takes my picture ;-)

I am super & highly motivated.

    You make things sounds so simple. LOL. I wish I had your resolve. I try all of this stuff and seem to never get anywhere. But I guess it's healthy at least. I am back to getting my 5 miles in most days, even with my bum knee. I could be eating better but I am at least eating better than I was. Good luck with your goal, GF!!!!

    WOW! SXSW -- that is awesome news! Congratulations:) And that isn't motivation, nothing is. Good luck in your quest, and your music will be beautiful in any case. Enjoy the moment.

    Well, you have a plan and you are motivated. Can't see any reason why you won't make this happen.
