Trying to stay on track

Tuesday, August 11, 2009

Today I have found to do what I need to do is hard. It is 103 degrees in Louisiana and wanting to get out and exercise is hard. I do go to the gym at Curves and work out 40 minutes a day and try to watch what I eat. Being a couch potato is easy when its hot outside. I want to get to a size 8-10 and am almost there. It's not like I have alot of weight to loose, but the interest in exercising outside the gym is not there. I could also loose a few inches here and there. It will be fall soon and I plan to ride my bike around town instead of taking my car. I am also working on mixing up the exercises I do at the gym to help make exercising more fun. I know I need to blog more and get help from my spark friends everyday, but I don't always do so. I have also gained about 10 lbs. I tend to go up the scale then down the scale. And these days more up the scale. I get aggravated and then I eat emotionally. I have to Spark UP! I want to loose 15 lbs and keep it off by my cruse next summer. I guess I have to find my motivation and loose my sweet tooth. Part of that motivation will be to find a good job so that empty nest won't cause boredom and I won't emotionally eat and I won't become a couch potato.

    I also work out at the local wellness center. Even walking in the evening is too much in this heat.

    From past experience - the closer we get to our goal weight, the more we tend to slide and say "Oh, tomorrow." Don't let yourself do that! Think of the coachs' recent blogs telling us to think positive!
    emoticon that thought of waiting away and keep in mind how great you will look on the cruise next summer with the 15 pounds gone!
    I walk daily and although it's not 103 here, it does get hot outside. Are there malls nearby (AC)? Some of ours allow walkers when the stores aren't open. Are there stairs anywhere you can run a few flights where it's air conditioned?
    YOU CAN DO IT!!!
