picking up the pieces

Monday, November 26, 2012

Its been a long month and a half. I started strong and then just fizzled out. It may not be so much for others but losing weight while taking care of baby is friggen HARD! The amount of work it takes just to get to the gym exhaust me.

Both my husband and I have really slacked the past 2 weeks. I am tipping the scale at 199lbs. I cant help but think that had I been consistent and lasted longer than a week I could be at 185lbs. Just like the many previous times before I have reached my breaking point. Today starts a new beginning for us that we hopefully can maintain.

As always we have the goal of going to the gym more often. I also need to stay as far from sugar and other simple carbs as I can. These are my kryptonite. I know this is only the millionth time I have had to restart, but one of these times it will stick. I may fall a lot but I keep getting back up. As long as i never give up completely all is not lost!

    It seems to be a common mindset that you have to get to the gym. There are some great videos floating around on workout type activities you can do that involve your kids or things you can do to turn your housework into a major workout. Think outside the box. emoticon

    You have the right attitude. Picking yourself up and trying again. If you don't at first succeed , try, try again. It is hard with a little ones, Maybe if it is not cold weather, and you have a stroller ,you can walk, or get a exercise video ,or sp video and work it in your day. Just don't give up. Rethink and see what will work for you. Going to the gym is great , but it doesn't always happen, find a simple back up plan. You can do it. emoticon emoticon You have to make time for yourself, if not you will let yourself go, an wake up one day in bad health , and older and it is allot harder to fix it.

    The good news is the better you get at this new lifestyle, the more energy you will have to keep up with it!!! I've been off track and complaining how tired I am etc... but if I look back and compare my energy levels with last year, even at my current tired state I am 200% more energetic than last year!! My family came visiting me.. they are not overweight, but they don't eat healthy... they drove me crazy just lying around all day and complaining how tired they were... but that was me last year!!

    I think they key to success is to repeatedly pick yourself back up and get yourself in hand again... and again... and again! ":)

    I know that's the way I managed to lose about 65 lbs!! :)

    Every time you start over it's another step towards success.
