The Reset Button

Thursday, February 28, 2013

I've been very inconsistent with posting my food and exercise, and I think that is what is keeping me unmotivated. I'm not taking this as seriously as I want to. I want to lose weight, but my head just hasn't been in the mindset of what I actually need to do in order to accomplish this. So I've hit the reset button...on my profile. I'm resetting my goals and starting over. Today I weighed in at 188.8 lbs. That's where I've been for a while now. Ever since I got the new scale anyway. Which sucks b/c my old scale was reading 183. emoticon That's ok. I'll get there.

So now I'm going to start my streak. I'm going to log my food and exercise every day. I'm going to do at least 10 minutes of exercise every day. I know I can do this, I just have to do it. It's not about finding motivation anymore. My husband was trying to tell me the other night I needed to motivate myself. I found my self telling him, 'No, I just need to DO IT!' That's what it is. I've been looking for motivation-a morning I wake up early, the weather to warm up, the kids to sleep a little longer than usual... I just need to quit! I need to get up off my tush and get it moving!

For today, I'm going to ask my neighbor if I can borrow her Zumba DVD. I loved doing Zumba with her, but she works nights now. I wish I had my own copy. Maybe when we get taxes back I can order it.

Food for the day
B: Turkey bacon, egg and half a slice of cheese on an english muffin and a banana
Snack: small blueberry muffin
L: Tuna salad sandwich, carrot sticks
D: Turkey meatloaf, mashed potatoes, corn

    Like you said, just do it. Pretend you like it if you have to at first. Eventually it becomes routine and habit (replacing some old habits?) and soon you are back on track. Don't let yourself make excuses about the kids, the weather, or anything else. Take your health and fitness seriously and give it the priority that it deserves! You can do it!

    Here's some my zumba/personal trainer always says. Motivation might be what gets you started but that will fade. Some days you just have to do it whether you want to or not. The motivation part will catch up...or it won't, but at least you got it done.
