The Seven Week Itch

Tuesday, November 10, 2009

I guess it happens to everyone at some point. The weight loss isn't happening as quickly as I hoped it would. But I DO know why. I'm not exercising enough... period.
I'm doing really well with the food. My cravings haven't been bad at all. Since the time change, my routine of walking around the neighborhood has come to a screeching halt. I don't live in the greatest neighborhood, so walking in the dark isn't very safe. It's dark when I leave for work, it's dark when I get home. My house is a huge mess of boxes (we're moving) and there are too many people hanging around (teenagers) to jazzercise in front of the tv. We couldn't afford to keep the gym, etc.
A million excuses. I know I need to MAKE it happen, but I'm feeling the depression that comes with halted progress.

    Walk at lunch! Even just a short walk will make a difference.

    It will get there. Focus on keeping your food intake habits clean and the rest will come. We definitely need to focus on making the time but that is the easy part. The food was the hardest for us to grasp.

    YIKES!!! I've actually been off track in both departments (food & exercising) since I've been on vacation & sick - blah, blah, blah....

    I'm just a big winer right now.
