I go for a walk almost every night around 10 PM. On Wednesday as I was nearing the end of my first mile a young lady stopped me and asked for help. Her car was out of gas and she in the road. She asked me to steer while she pushed, I instead asked to push her SUV while she steered to get it out of the road. Broke out into a full sweat doing that. She did not have a gas can in the vehicle so got one from home, I live right around the corner. Walked with her to the gas station and back. Roommate was out with our car already at the time. Woke up today tired as hell and decided I needed to give my body a rest today. Did not even want to cook. Got only 10,000 steps in total for today. I try to aim for 14,000 to 16,000 steps a day lately. Did not do a weight workout either. I am trying to listen to my body when it says I need to rest. I am always afraid if I take a break that I won't resume. I know old habits die hard and I just don't want to fall back into those old habits. This might make me sound crazy, LOL, but I talk to myself a lot I am my cheerleader, my motivator, I do have a support system at home that does encourage me but they don't push me. Have never had anyone in my life that would push me to keep going even when I want to give up so I have had to figure out how to do that to myself. Some people get mentors and teachers who can push, encourage, and teach them some have to find out on their own how to achieve their goals. I am the latter. Because I have always craved having someone guide me I have a tendency to try to guide other people. No I don't always get it right but at least they know of a direction to go to get what they want. SparkPeople has given me the tools to be able to find the direction I need to go in to achieve my weight loss goals for my health. First time in my life I feel like I have the knowledge I need to reach a goal I want, need and full blown desire to achieve.
