OMG I took a walk today

Sunday, October 02, 2011

I've been on this program for 20 days. I keep thinking about exercise and what I'm going to do when.... There's yoga, walking, and maybe joining a gym for a recumbent bike.

Today, I took the boys emoticon for a 20 minute walk. It felt good to be out and it felt good to move.

I love to walk. I used to walk around a cranberry bog every day. But my motivation has left me. I think alot of it has to do with self esteem and feeling "good enough". I want to lose weight for a number of reasons. Vanity is at the top or pretty near it. I know exercise will help me reach this goal quicker and help me get stronger.

I think I've become lazy! Liar....I am lazy. Admitting this is the first step to change, yes? I've also been depressed. The depression coincides with me gaining all this weight too. So does the lazines and the fact I stopped caring.

But I do care now. Let's see if I can motivate myself to go walk again.

    AWESOME job getting out there and walking with your pals. I'll bet they enjoyed the time as much as you did!
    Sometimes, the threshold to getting out there is steep. Depression can be debilitating, but you got out there!! emoticon I hope the sun shone down on your shoulders and face, and the smiling pups on their walk reinforced the great feeling!

    Try it again soon!!! emoticon Way to GO!!!

    Motivating yourself to work out is really difficult! Well, at least for me it is. I find it is a lot better if I do it first thing in the morning. That way I don't have time to make up excuses for not doing it later in the day. It also makes me feel great the rest of the day. However, it is still hard for me to get going in the mornings. I also suffer from depression and recently had to go off my meds for a few days (no $$ to refill prescription). That has really thrown me for a loop. I feel your pain and I hope we can both find the motivation to get up and move!
