Trying to get back on track

Thursday, September 27, 2012

I have been completely thrown off by all the changes in my life and I haven't been treating myself very well. I haven't really been eating good foods and my exercising has been cut down to a minimum. Now that we are all settled in at the new house I am really trying to get into a new routine. We went to the store today and I have a pretty good menu planned for the next couple days so that should be good.

This week I finally started exercising again. I have been trying to find some good walking paths to take my dogs on in my new area. At least we are getting out and going though. I even did some strength training yesterday, although I started at the beginning of my program again since it has been so long since I have done it. I also went for my first bike ride tonight in a very long time. I can't really swim anymore since it is starting to get really cold in our pool, so I had to find something else to do. My legs kind of feel like jello right now, but I figure I will get better at it.

Slowly but surely I am starting to get back on track. It has just taken me a bit to get motivated I guess. I am just hoping that I am back now. I have still been losing weight, but I really don't want to back track and gain weight! I just have to take it a day at a time.

    It's understandable that things got pushed to the back with life's turn but you should be so proud of yourself for getting back in focus and putting your desire's into action. Good luck and emoticon forward

    It's all about what you're goin to do now, not as much about where you have been or wish you were.
    Make small goals... what's 1 thing that you CAN and WILL do this week to step towards your health goals? You don't have to fix it all, right now... just start with one area and be intentional on making steps towards that goal. :D Like the pp said, it's about babysteps
