Hmmm not sure what happened to blog 2 day 2
Let me try to recap that.
#2 was about how I would stay on task.
My thoughts on that were to go easier on myself and stop comparing my 54 year old self to my 25 year old self. It is not easy for me to do that but I will make and effort and learn to ask for help instead of pushing myself to the point of severe pain and then feeling like a loser because I am laid up again. I have always been independent so it is tough. But I think I can do it.

today's though is what am I doing to encourage myself to keep on track.
I have been keeping to smaller work outs that I can keep up with and do on a regular basis as opposed to blowing myself up trying to do a big one. I am also trying to let myself believe that being a healthy weight does not make me unattractive. Now if I could just get my moms voice out of my head LOL
I am getting better. I can do this.

    hmm thats one of my problems too. And its hard not to, isn't it, because you FEEL so much the same. But ah well, I guess it time to make NEW cool memories of what I can do. =)

    Hang in there! Changing the voices in our head can be quite a battle. One time I made up a 3x5 to carry in pocket with positive statements to replace the negative ones that were incessantly playing in my head. It took work and time, but I did replace them.

    You are so wise about making the workouts something you can stick with! Keeping moving forward and you'll get where you want to go.

    You are so right. I myself will never stop singing the praises for little workouts done frequently if that's what my body can do. I have been so successful with that approach. I agree, it keeps my spirits up, makes me feel like a success and I can take it slow, especially since my body is tired and achy.

    You are doing a fabulous job! What an inspiration!

    That's why I like the small 10 minute streaks! Baby steps are the way to go!

    Yep, it's just the way the world works - as we get older, nothing comes as easy and we have to be more careful. It sounds like you're being really smart about all this. Great job!

    know the independence.. now I am on disability and food stamps and its hard because I am not dead- I still want to do things-but no extra money and they say I can't make a dollar or I will loose benefits - can't do that - my doctors fill a sheet of paper..
    I belong to the 10 min team.. doing something for 10 mins.. they are a good group.. maybe a team like that can help get started- I am 57, and my doctor just told me my body is old.. mopping today , and its ok for me to do that... like you, I need to do what I need to do... so emoticon emoticon emoticon
