The workout monster is BACK!

Wednesday, July 08, 2009

I let myself down. I'm not thrilled about it, but I understand that these things happen.
There were multiple reasons. I was under a lot of stress, I was trying to do SO much regarding my fitness lifestyle---primarily, joining too many challenges, etc., and I got lazy.
That's ok, I can handle that. So now what? Time to start fresh.
I didn't stop all of my activities, in fact, I now regularly walk at lunch on work days, and also do an after work walk with some spark friends! I wasn't eating great, but I did actually eat less.
So I have returned--not that I truly left Sparkpeople, I just hadn't been entering my food or fitness, among other little bits of activities.
I began working out today, I logged it all, I ate food I shouldn't have today, but I did log it! I'm glad I enjoyed the foods, 'cause that was it for now... I also went through and cleaned out my goals. Multiple ones that I was just wasting time entering are now gone; especially, if I was regularly reaching them--after all, if I am still reaching the goal without logging it, then it has officially become a part of my lifestyle--the purpose of that goal!
I think I am going to stick to this better, just doing my workouts and logging them (although, not making them planned to the last detail---I know what I need to do, so I will set up a rough guideline and follow that!), eating right, but still logging it, and keeping up with my new friends and my groups.
I am making this fun again, not a "thing" that I have to spend multiple hours on the computer with every day--after all, college starts at the end of next month--I'm sure it will add a bit more work to my schedule!
That being said, I am SO glad to have started over! I Love the feeling a good workout gives, and I am SO glad that I am making new friends here!
Thanks for all of your motivation!
Kate, the workout monster, aka, K-Gecko!

    Great job, it's so easy to get frustrated and quit, it's quite an accomplishment to stand up and say "I'm not going to quit!" Congratulations on a job well done! Keep up the good work!

    Hey Kate! I try to look at every day as a fresh start; another opportunity to do better than I did the day before. To me it sounds like you are doing fantastic.
