100 days of Weight Loss - Day 3 - Do it Anyway!

Friday, November 16, 2012

This day pretty much talks about determination and to be committed, ok so this is a good one for me :)

Something to think about ....

"I don't feel like exercising today! Does this sound familiar? Then what happens? Do you exercise even though you don't feel like it? Or do you give in and hang out on the couch because you don't feel like making the effort... "

I have had days where i think where do i fit the time for exercise, i often have the feeling i am too tired to exercise, but i find i have been hiding behind that excuse for too long. In the beginning i would of been just the couch person, but even if i am really tired, i find one being a seated exercise, means i can sit and still do some cardio. That is my to go to last resort when i am not bothered to exercise, But sometimes i just get that boost of energy i need with listening to a motivational song or reading a motivational quote, and that gets me going, i don't know how but it seems like it gives me a kick in the rear end and tells me go exercise, this month alone i have been aiming for a 40 minute minimal per day, and so far so good, i have not gone without a day in November being below that minimal. There has been some days where i did just do the minimal but thats the point i still did it despite all. I am rarely sick to use that as an excuse but if i do have some pain or something, i soak up in a bath tub see how i feel afterwards and if it continues i will just do some light yoga, tai chi or something like that. Sparkpeople challenges have also been giving me that extra boost to get those minutes in, i am one that doesn't include the points for house hold chores i know there is quiet a few people on sparkpeople that does, i will only count house hold chores in if it makes me break a sweat like washing windows maybe but washing dishes , vacuuming or changing the bed i will just leave out lol. It does feel great accomplishing goals with the no matter what, if we want to succeed i believe we should stop hiding behind excuses and get going. If i can do it so can others :) And i do have a busy job as a nurse. I am always busy and on my feet for most of the days i do get tired but i still bite the lip and get going with my exercise because i am determined and i am committed into loosing this weight, i do not want to continue my life always being around the weight of 115 kg / 250 lbs it is just not the way to live, so i am making my progress my way in my own style and getting rid of excuses. I will continue to stick to my monthly/weekly goals and sparkpeople methods , tips and strategies. This will keep me going to a healthier me.

    I like what you said all the way thru, but especially "no matter what, if we want to succeed i believe we should stop hiding behind excuses and get going. If i can do it so can others"
    You will succeed with this attitude. I have a daughter at 220 and granddaughter only 14 that outweighs her. I hope they both will get motivated like you are.
