Thanks, ladies.

Margaret, reminding myself that the dithering about doing something is more sapping of energy and peace of mind than just doing the thing has gotten me to get things done in the past as well. I was so surprised the first time I realized all the time-wasting that can be avoided.

I love your comment 'that going would be far easier than dealing with the anguish of fake-deciding and the disappointment I'd feel if I didn't go'. That is so true. We waste so much energy thinking up excuses as to why we shouldn't do these things!

Well done. And those 10 mins at home when you can't get to the gym are great as well. I am going to go back to those as they are great.

Margaret

Never give up, never quit, never surrender

You only fail when you stop trying

There is nothing to hold you back except you.

You can press forward long after you cant. Its a matter of wanting it bad enough.

The bad news is: we are our own worst enemies. The good news is: we are our own greatest champions.

I don't recall how much of my pertinent history I've jotted down here. I have a lapband, lost a lot of weight and regained about 2/3 of it. I began eating properly a week ago and had the band adjusted tighter mid-week. Also endeavoring to develop something new -- an exercise habit. I got to the local Y a week ago and not again until today. In between I've been doing some 10-minute stints at home.

Today's exercise and the thought process that got me there were blasted triumphs. While going back and forth in my head about going to the gym, which I'd decided to do yesterday, I prepared for not going by dancing at home for 10 mins in the style of the blue-footed booby, it seems. Then I worked on how to get to the gym as well. It occurred to me, as it has only once before, that going would be far easier than dealing with the anguish of fake-deciding and the disappointment I'd feel if I didn't go. So off I trotted.

I did 30 mins on the recumbent stationary bike. It was probably more than advisable at this early stage, but I did it. I was at the 3 level. About 17 mins in, I thought I wouldn't last the full 30. That made me determined, telling myself "I'm Laurie, I can do this." I rode approx 5.6 miles. Heart rate flashed on 132 for a moment near the end as I pressed harder. Best of all, I broke a sweat. Nothing like a sweat to make you feel authentic.
