But honestly it was wonderful once I got my butt in gear, and got dressed with all my gym close and work clothes just poised by the door.. ready for me. <BR> <BR> What a breeze.. got up fed the cats.. got dressed and out the door I went. Plenty of time and it really felt good to be back exercising.. <BR> <BR> So did about 15 min on tread mill... and worked lower body.. OhBoy.. my legs felt a bit wobbly. <BR> <BR> I did squats, lunges, thi... Wed, 6 Apr 2016 22:27:43 EST So shaking it up making changes! day 2 Day 2: Got to do something different! <BR> <BR> I just saw a great quote <BR> "Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. <BR> The time will pass anyway" Thanks to Kellyjoe30's spark page! <BR> <BR> I agree, it will take time. Also making the necessary changes to make your dreams come true. <BR> <BR> I sat down and figured out a schedule, for working out. I need to be physical , but I find at the end of the day I don't enjoy going to the gym, I... Mon, 4 Apr 2016 10:16:50 EST Ok so I'm back.. lol I think I do need to keep track. Its a pain in the butt, but apparently I need it to change my way of being. I love that saying "If you keep doing what your doing, nothing is going to change" Habit wise. Time to change it up and really putting first and center in my life. <BR> <BR> Its so easy to just say ah not today I'm tired, or i've got this or that to do.. Just do it! Don't thing to hard about it. I wanting it to be 2nd nature but until that happens.. its gonna take planning an... Sun, 3 Apr 2016 13:01:47 EST Well I must say.. I think I think I have figured out what works for me. FINALLY. I have made some decisions that help me stay on track and not get over whelmed. <BR> <BR> For example, going to the gym.. I would make such a big deal about writing down each exercise and writing the weight, how many exact reps, OMG it made me crazy.. and honestly did I even look at it after all the writing as I try to do my weight lifting.. a big old NO.. It would just slow me down. <BR> <BR> So now I go in with a thought a... Wed, 2 Mar 2016 21:04:03 EST This time is different. So here I go again. More starts than I can count.. with as many stops to go with the starts. Embarrassed that I have failed again. <em>39</em> <BR> <BR> Well, I'm back making a plan and will stick to it. I have to remember its not an all or nothing situation. Life is a journey, there will be ups and downs, and getting healthy is no exception. Over the years I get all excited to do it, and then something happens or i'm just to darn lazy to not step up and do what I KNOW I should be d... Sun, 21 Feb 2016 19:41:47 EST day3: just learning how to keep track So not a perfect day. I ate about 2000 calories and most of those were after 4 pm. Home alone. This is the time for me to become more aware. I want to know what I do normally then small changes will be more sustainable. My deficit was only -127. Due to my chowing down last night. What I did right was I went to the gym and did 30 min cardio. I felt great. I hope it's not the"gee I exercised I can eat mode". It's more than likely that my mind told me go for it. "I deserved it". Plus b... Wed, 12 Aug 2015 06:17:18 EST working on my goals day 2 So excited to share.
