Slow starting

Monday, January 06, 2014

I have started tracking again and it is not pretty. I also did my monthly budget and that was also not so pretty. I guess I must start somewhere. Today I am doing two green smoothies and a meal. I know it is only one day but it should get me back into the swing of things.
We left the tree up so that Lavinia could see it a bit. Today is the day to take it down and get everything away.
It’s time to get organized and get ready for the regular routine again. Tonight I have to pack my gym back and make sure both Lavinia and I are all set for tomorrow. It is times like this that I am having a hard time getting back into the swing of things that I remember my ex-boyfriend who used to tell me, “Don’t think, just do!” He would tell me (the planner, worrier, etc.) to just shut my brain off. He would say that the more I think about working out, I would almost think myself out of it and was so tired and not want to do it. Once I would do it, I would realize how much I enjoyed it, missed it and felt proud of myself and that it was so worth it. Time to follow that advise again.
I did have a great break, I enjoyed myself and found that there was not a lot of damage during the holidays (because my plan was to start back after 5 lbs were gained). My problem is starting back up. It doesn’t help that my aversion to the cold this time of year turns me into a spoiled brat. Today is the day to turn it all around.

    Starting slow is way better than not starting at all! Keep up with your good work. You are so much worth it!

    It's okay to start slow! I have only recently come to terms with the fact that (for me, personally), trying to do it all at once is too much and I will burn out. I have started gradually this go around, and I feel the momentum building rather than burning out.
