I'm doing the right things

Saturday, May 23, 2009

I knew that when I made the decision to get back on track that I wouldn't be able to jump back to that place where I was when I started gaining weight back again. I knew it would have to be a slow process and I'd have to build myself back up again.

Today, I finished my workout with WOWY where I track my weekly workouts and noticed an awesome trend. Two months ago, I was only doing two workouts a week. Usually two in a row. Then, of course, I would get lazy and say, "Forget it, I'll try again next week." Well two weeks later, that trend turned into three workouts in a row. That lasted about three weeks and then again, TA DA, this week I ended with four workouts for the week!

I couldn't be more proud of myself. And the workouts aren't seeming so HAVE to now. I WANT to. I knew that motivation would come back with time.

I won't try and pull the wool over my own eyes and say my eating habits are on track. They aren't, but they are better. For example, yesterday, I took a cup of left over pasta and sauce, but I also took a big salad...and big shock, I loved having that little bit of pasta but getting in my great salad also.

Also, another nice surprise yesterday is a supervisor at work walked up to me and said it looked like I had lost weight. Now, I KNOW I haven't lost weight because I watch that scale like my life depended on it, BUT it reminded me that weight isn't everything. Bodies change even if the weight doesn't! I am on my monthly cycle and of course, you have water weight, etc. because of that. I am hopeful that my body is changing again and soon that scale will second that.

I am happy today and that is something I haven't had in a while!

    Congrats! You are getting in your groove! Good for you. I know that I have done this thing in stages and it def makes a difference. It made it easier for me to ease into the groove I'm in now instead of trying to be a workoutaholic and food nazi like I did in the past. It's a slower process, but a more enjoyable one b/c I don't feel like I'm on a "diet" at all. I am changing my mindset and habits and it's working. Looks like you are doing the same and that kind of change is lasting! :)
