Reclaiming my health
Sunday, January 05, 2014
I have joined a challenge with Angel and Michelle two of my weight loss buddies to get in 600 minutes of exercise this month, and I am going to do it!!!! Yesterday I only got in 20 minutes of walking with the dogs and blamed the cold and wind. Angel pointed out that it was twenty degrees where she is, and walked longer. I love that she held me accountable!!! I realized, OMG I am making excuses, and this is what is keeping me fat. (Not that I just realized it, it is just that actually reading it, hit home for me. I've known for years that I can exercise and eat right if I want to. I just choose not to. Yep, it has been a choice, and it has helped me gain 57# more than when I started back in 2000). I can choose to lose this weight, and that is my choice. Last night I cleaned the house vigorously for over a half hour so I am going to call it 30 minutes for a total of 50 minutes yesterday. Today, I started out doing 20 squats. I am going to focus on the positive things happening and what I am accomplishing this year. I am going to make more time to enjoy life and quit living in the past. The past is gone, and it has been dreadful. I need to move on from this point. I found a great website today, and read the following article and several other articles on the website, and I am feeling pretty positive today.
I am down 7.4# :) Of course most of it was from being sick, but I am claiming it :)
