The Voices in my Head

Wednesday, August 29, 2012

This week has been a little bit of a struggle. I'm not doing horribly or anything but I haven't been my same gung-ho self. I need to get back to that. I also need to get connected again with my SparkPeople community. I do find that it helps.

I'm starting by getting my patootie to the gym this morning. I always find that exercise is the best motivator in the world. It's like immediate feedback. I'm sure I will hear that inner voice in my head when I get there saying things like:

Kevin, long time no exercise.
This used to be easier wasn't it?
Seriously? Is that my belly jiggling up and down on the treadmill? I thought those days were over.
Why don't I look like THAT?
You shouldn't have been a bad boy lately.
Now let's keep this habit going again. You know you feel so much better.

BTW, the picture in my previous post is not me. That's Steven Tyler, the judge from American Idol from a Today Show news story. Apparently he had fallen down.

    i hear you. I've felt the same way for a week or two. Part of me reminds myself that I'm in this for the long term - so that's going to mean week(s) where I'm not "into" being healthy or just aren't as careful. What I've been doing the last week or two is faithfully weighing myself. That way I can see the impact I'm having during these "slide" week(s). Most recently, that meant gaining half a pound though this week I'm back down slightly.

    I think the important thing is to remember that we're in this for the long haul, so if things don't start improving, we both may need to do some things to get ourselves back on track.

    I loved that you went to the gym. That is awesome.

    We all have our days where we aren't quite our normal selves. Good for you that you pushed yourself to the gym anyhow!

    Kev youve hit a blah moment lost a little bit of the excitement and maybe stumbled..it happens to everyone in ever aspect of life what matters my friend is you noticed and you are getting up and refocusing...we are all here if you need to vent or shout! Keep pushing forward dont let anything stop you...even if you need to babystep back to your former self you always lap everyone whose arse is still on the couch.

    I find myself living in this space, not doing horribly, but non-positive inner conversations, then one day, I got off the plan big time.

    So impressed that you're taking this on, most don't. Thanks for the inspiration this morning.
