Moving Forward

Thursday, March 28, 2013

I have been yo-yoing for awhile now with my weight loss program and motivation. For a month or so I was on top of things and taking good care of myself. Then last year after my car accident, I started getting depressed and having to walk because I was so afraid to drive my car, even though it was just bumper damage.
I fell very off track even with the walking, mainly because it was getting very cold and my shin splints were causing me so much pain that I felt defeated. After a month I decided to drive again but not on highways, slowly Im feeling secure again in a car. Also over the winter time I gained 10 more pounds. I was stressed at work, unmotivated to go the gym that is a block from my house, and just feeling all sorts of defeated. My boyfriend the gym buff didnt help because he was behind on his payments and didnt want to go.
Now its march and Ive gotten better since the New year. Yes its cold still but soon it will warm up and even though I wont be able to use my car, I will gladly walk to work and anywhere else. Im better at eating as well, especially when watching the BIggest Loser. It motivates me because I like to watch the workouts and see what the trainers come up with.
My new goal is to focus on performing better at work and not letting anything get to me negatively, working on running a 5k (which Ive been training at the gym for), and just being a better person for myself.
