Procrastination Station

Saturday, September 29, 2012

Ok so Thursday's woo-hoo did not last as long as I'd hoped. Getting back on the band wagon is hard, even though I haven't been off the wagon for a terribly long time. Today I had a banana and water in the AM, followed by chips. Uhhh... Not a tremendous amount, and calorie-wise I'm still on point, just ugh. Chips? And that was while procrastinating getting on my treadmill. I'm still procrastinating and enjoying a delicious ice coffee to boot.

Yesterday I spent the greater part of the day playing Elder Scrolls IV (I'm behind the times) but managed to get outside. D and I were trying to entice our dog into playing catch with us and ended up making up shovel ball which we played for quite a while (while Blackjack took no interest. meh.) So at least I got outside and played some.

I'm bummed that getting back into the swing of things isn't easier. I'm bummed that I'm not miraculously fit and motivated with no effort on my part. Why is this hard again? Why?????

I know that with time and effort (seriously not sure why it's not a 4 letter word) it will get easier. I know that little by little the choices will seemingly make themselves and I will feel better and look better and have energy and be strong. I just want it to be NOW. Bah. Anyway, I am going to get on the treadmill now.

    Isn't that impatience part of the condition? I never went on a diet without wanting to be thin yesterday. The difference here is that I never considered it a diet. I probably would have done better in previous attempts if I'd been looking for a lifestyle change instead of a diet. I'm here for the long haul--it takes what it takes.

    Get on with it! It seems like work now, but once you get back into it, it will be a habit.
