Chasing the Wagon

Tuesday, February 23, 2010

I've kind of fallen off the wagon here, and even though I've logged on every day, I haven't been doing the things that were working for me when I first came here. I stopped logging my food, my water, haven't even been going to the gym, which was really beginning to show benefits for me! All that junk "they" tell you about exercise is true: increase energy, stamina, mood. Even my hubby was starting to notice some changes.

So I slacked off.

Time to get back to it! Today is cardio kickboxing at noon, and I did remember to bring the appropriate clothes, so I'm going to make every effort to get there and get some serious sweating done. I am such a mess in that class. I'm way older than everyone else, and I haven't a lick of rhythm, but I feel good when I am done!

I've been really stuck in an escape mode lately, reading a ton of trashy fiction...I have a book on CD in the car, another audio book going on my Blackberry, about three novels next to my bed...gee, do ya think maybe I should try to set some limits there? Portion control apparently doesn't just apply to food...although my other escape, doing needle work and watching movies, is kind of off limits right now because I've developed a terrible case of tendonitis in my elbow (I wouldn't call it tennis elbow...maybe knitter's elbow?) and I think I'd better give it some serious rest before I have to resort to cortisone shots and strong drugs. Bleh.

    Seems like you know what is "off"--I do the same thing sometimes. I call it "self-sabotage". I live alone--so I cannot blame the ice cream, potato chips, etc. in the house on anyone else except me (I know the cats did not sneak out to the store and load up on junk food emoticon ).
    Getting back on track is part of the my blogs I have called them "speed bumps"...but, the wagon does get shaky at times and I feel as though I will fall off and then it will back up and run me over!!! emoticon
    However, I refuse to give in--even to myself!!
    Books are okay--your knitting is a wonderful idea--keeps your hands busy so you cannot "munch"!! Everything--reading, food, exercise, etc. in moderation!! emoticon

    Hang in there--you have lots of support here!!
