Bumps in the road are to be expected
Saturday, February 01, 2014
After staring off pretty strong, losing 4 lbs, and doing my first fitness test, I had my first bump in the road. This week has been a struggle to meet my water on a consistent basis and exercise. It seems like I have so much on my plate and after awhile I just collapsed. However, I'm not giving up. I just looked at the events and said what am I going to do about it? Well, for one thing, I decided that I will track only the things I'm trying to implement so the most important things I do is track my water, sleep, and exercise. If anything else gets tracked, that's a bonus, but I'm just going to concentrate on these things for now. As for my game plan to make sure I get back to being consistent at exercise, I looked at my Pinterest board and realized I have lots of exercises posted. I can rotate what I have there while continuing to look for more to add.
Today I went swimming with my daughter. It felt so good to work my body like that and I felt so relaxed afterwards. With all the stress I'm under, anything that gives me a break from that is a welcome relief so that just brought it home even more how important it is that I do exercise. So I'm proud of myself for seeing the trend and instead of just giving up, analyzing it and seeing how I can get over this bump. I'm very happy for what I accomplished today in getting me back into the exercise mindset, but the real proof will be tomorrow and how I get through that week. Hoping I have a plan for success!
