Well, for a shortened week, it sure has seemed long. I ended up being busy for the rest of the week, and I wasn't able to get to the gym again, but I am going to go tomorrow morning for about an hour.
I'm really worried though. I feel like I just can't get into the groove of exercise and eating well - things come up, and I lose all concentration. I need to get myself on track, and I need to stay there. I often feel like a hypocrite when I am teaching - especially when I teach my wellness class. Who am I to tell my students to eat well, exercise, and maintain a healthy weight, when I can't seem to do it myself? How unfair is that? I know what I need to do, I know how to do it, but I just can't seem to put my knowledge into practice. Any tips from member would be extremely appreciated.
It's funny, I get so inspired from the other posts here on Sparkpeople, and I feel like I can take on the world. Then I move away from the computer, and everything goes away. I wish I could keep the inspiration going - almost like an inspirational quote that I can pull out whenever I need to see it. Maybe I need to start writing things down on paper again, as well as on here. I need to be accountable to myself and others.
I CAN do this! I WILL do this! I HAVE to do this to make myself healthier for the rest of my life! I want to be an inspiration to others - but I need to put in the work first. Tomorrow, I WILL get up early and go to the gym!
I hope everyone else makes a promise to themselves as well, to do something that they have had trouble sticking with. Have a good night and a fantastic weekend - I will check in again tomorrow!
