stopping my bad habits in their tracks!

Tuesday, April 09, 2013

So...I became lazy and haven't gone to the gym in about 12 days, i have worked out at home a few times but nothing enough to what I was doing at the gym. I do this every time, i lose weight and then I SELF SABOTAGE and i dont understand why!!! I have begun the stages of self sabotage by not going to the gym enough and not eating well. Well, not this time. I caught it in time before I really made some mistakes. I joined COLOR ME RAD today the 5K in boston. I have a team and a work out partner, but I ALSO have a phone app couch to 5k. Guess what I did today, I did the first work out on the app and got through it!!! I am going to keep it up and now that I have this goal of looking amazing in pictures after I run my first 5K...well thats a lot of motivation. I learned, not too long ago, that my diet affects me hugely. I know people have been saying this for years, but i always believed that I could get all the weight off with just working out. NOT TRUE!!! Im teling you, when I was eating more fruits and veggies throughout the day, I was feeling great and looking amazing, the lbs were dropping easily. I am what I eat and I need to get back on track and realize that in all honestly, nothing tastes as good as skinny has felt lately!!!! I am a huge foodie and I live on Cape Cod, so there will be a lot of temptation....but I have already decided I can still eat well. Tonight, I ordered in, but got broiled scallops with butternut squash. The meal made me so full that I FORGOT how much I loved seafood!!! Im ready to NOT sabotage because this time is different and this time, its about my health and a healthy BODY IMAGE.

    i don't like gyms, and none are close wnough to my house to get me there every day. i am waiting for warm weather so i can go outside without shivering. the cold makes me stiff, so there is a danger of falling, not a good thing at my age.

    I've fallen into the 'skip the gym for week' rotation as well. Six months ago - I probably wouldn't go back - but now I feel cruddy when I don't do anything. We are meant to be active creatures. When the gym starts sickening me (most the smell, we have some gentlemen who need showers!) I take it outside. Yoga in the sun (believe me, it can be a GOOD workout), a nice (exhausting) run, hiking... Sometimes the monotony gets to me - and that's why I stop going. Even if you aren't doing quite as much with these activities - they still put you in a better state of mind. Good luck. :)
