Gaining Weight

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

Ok. I had a reality hit when I gained some of my weight back. I worked so hard to get it off and then used being sick as an excuse to eat but not exercise, so I gained. Now I am not sick and I find that it has been easy to fall back into the old habits that got me to my original starting point.

Mentally, I tell myself not to do it, but I usually have food in my mouth. So I guess I don't hear myself. emoticon But I know what I am saying, I just don't seem to care.

WEll, I have the Color Run coming up in Phoenix this weekend and decided to start going walking/jogging again. I was afraid that I would tire out quick but found it to be very relaxing and it didn't hurt to do it. I found that I haven't lost that. Thank God that I was able to almost pick up where I left off and continue again without going back to square one.

So I have walked everyday and I feel that I am ready for the race. I will be concentrating on watching my foods again. I know I said I was already going to do this, but I didn't. I will not do very well, I know I am not as gung-ho as I was, but I have signed up to do the 10k in Little Rock in March. I will keep exercising and see where I go with that.

Thank you for listening. As I said before, I am passing through here every once in a while. I felt the need to vent, so here I am.

    Venting gets you to listen--to yourself. Hope you heard yourself saying, "I want to get back on the wagon NOW!" emoticon
