What I Shouldn't Be Thinking/Feeling

Sunday, March 06, 2011

Something about being at home with no gym and no scale is really frustrating me and making me feel like I'm never going to get anyway near accomplishing my fitness goals (which, deep down I know is not true if I just keep consistent and motivated but you know how the human mind can work). I mean, naturally I tend to go through these sort of cycles and I try not to talk about it here but I feel like really, it's part of the process. If I can't be honest on my own blog then personally I feel I might as well not have a public blog. I've never been one to be private in my writing, whether that happens to be blog posts or statuses.

Anyway, I'm frustrated. I've stood in front of the mirror a few times poking and pinching myself just kind of silently hoping it'll magically melt off either instantly or just a wee bit faster. The gym makes me feel secure about my fitness. I know there's a track where I can run, a weight room where I can lift, and Ellipticals and stationary bikes where I can get in my extra Cardio. At home, there's none of that and it makes me worried.

I want to stop worrying about whether or not I'm hitting my marks but I guess that is just one more part of the challenge...

    I've started running on roads and doing fitness DVDs at home. Maybe try and sculpt a time out of your day that you *will* do either a DVD or a run. You can do it!!

    I found myself staring in the mirror and pinching myself today too, but doing so only made me more determined to reach my goals. I can definitely understand your frustrations and it's good that you are documenting your feelings here. You could probably try workout DVDs until you can get back in the gym. emoticon emoticon

    Working out at home took some getting used to for me. I stopped going to the gym because it was too far and getting expensive. I made my own gym at home though. I have my weights, workout dvds and stability ball. It's been beautiful outside and I have been getting in my cardio outside. You can do it girl and you have already shown that you can. Keep up the good work! emoticon emoticon
