doin it.

Monday, November 11, 2013

So, I'm conquering my excuses.

1- Excuse: Working odd hours that change every 4 wks makes working out difficult, especially when working nights. Conquer: Today I woke up earlier than normal (after going to bed sooner after getting home from work than usual), too give myself time to get my butt up on the stationary bike for some amount of time- some is better than nothing!

2- Excuse: My exercise bike hurts my butt. Conquer: Yesterday I ordered a new bike seat that should be delivered Wednesday :)

Also, I've been watching Extreme weight loss on Hulu for motivation. This one particular episode that I'm watching now shows a married couple going through the process. The husband was very much less confident than his wife. For most of the episode he was continuously doubting himself and thinking that he wasn't doing as well as his wife, etc- always down on himself. I think I'm like that. He then came to the realization that he was too hard on himself. I'm have realized that in part, but I don't know how to change that. I'm very much my own worst enemy, which my husband knows and has told me too. Anyway, doubting and fear of failure gets me nowhere. Why not throw myself in and see what happens. I don't think the actual failure is as scary as what I fear. Plus, I may not fail.

    Wonderful you are realizing your excuses and doing something about it. And yes think we all are sometimes too hard on ourselves. But you can do this and do it right.
