Day 1 of many more

Monday, February 01, 2010

Today started off with much anticipation. I had written last night the three things I was going to do today and one of them was join the gym in my little town. I went there two weeks ago to check it out and it is $30/mo for seniors. I was gone to Fl to visit my dad until last Thurs so I thought today would be the ideal day to start. Today I am also starting the 28 day plan. The gym lady said it was usually quiet from 1000 to 1400. After 1500 the school kids come in for weight lifting etc and it gets busy from then on. Well. it is now 1500 and I've not been to the gym yet and I am really disappointed in myself.
I needed to make about three business phone calls this am which required some computer/printer work. I got on the Spark web site and read articles, tracked my food, read some blogs and recipes. Then decided I should eat lunch before going out. Then I needed a shower and that's where I got stuck I guess because I am still here on the couch and not at the gym.
I feel like I'm doing much better with my food than ever. I weighed 267 when I got back from Fl. I'm drinking my water and trying to get my protein in which can be a problem for me. This morning after 5 days I'm down to 260 which in the past has been my sabotage point. The point at which I start eating crap that I shouldn't and then gain or at least stop losing. So far, I have stuck to my food program today even though I screwed up the gym today. I have some 2 lb weights which I can use while sitting on my a** on this couch and at least I'll be doing something. I'm going to get up and get them right now. I'll show you, you stinking self defeating brain with all your negative messages!

    I agree with Tinabelle.

    It's hard for to get myself motivated to go to the gym also so I know exactly where you are coming from. Have you tried finding a workout buddy? I have found that when I set a workout date with someone else I am more apt to keep it. I also found that having people just harangue me till I go works well also. Eventually you will see and feel the benefits of working out and then you will be a bit more motivated. Trust me I know.

    I would also suggest you use the Spark People prescription and start with ten minutes a day. This doesnt seem so daunting and you feel like you can check off a goal at the end of the day.

    Hope this helps.

    You know what? You didn't let your disappointment with not hitting the gym spill over into your diet. That's victory! Even baby steps will get you to your destination, so hang in there, tomorrow is an opportunity to do even better! emoticon
