Another lesson learned.....

Wednesday, June 19, 2013

After fitting in walking so well on my trip, I have yet to take a walk since I've been home. My epiphany this morning was that maybe when you have too MUCH time, it's easier to procrastinate. It's true also that the first day home (Monday), I was pretty tired but I've found that you can walk through any amount of tiredness, and feel better for it.

I also have to fight my tendency to never be satisfied. At the end of the day my mind dwells on the things I did NOT get to rather than what I did accomplish. Eating more than you need is a syndrome with lots of hidden [negative] motivations, isn't it?

More kudos to my friends who've actually lost weight. I'm healthier and more fit, but the weight is not leaving. I'm tired of being the "fat" sister in my sister photographs.

The first picture was not good of Cheryl. Here's one the day before, as she waited to blow bubbles at the bride and groom as they left the chapel.

    Lovely photos of you and your sisters.
    I have a lot of spare time this week being off work but am trying to ensure I do as much, if not more, than normal especially as I am likely to be eating more!
    Bikes for each of us will be arriving tomorrow so I can add a new exercise in with the walking and jogging.
    The fact that you are feeling so much better and fitter is a major win. I'm sure the weight loss will follow too.

    I totally understand about too much time. It seems like I get less done on my days off than I do on normal days.

    I don't know if it is the warmer weather or what, but I can't seem to get as committed to exercise as I was a year ago. Maybe it is because I am relaxing after a year of being retired and lost my self-discipline.

    But every day is a new day to start over.

    I know exactly what you mean about too much time. I seem to plan much better and fit more in when I have a lot on my plate. Keep up the good work. Don't forget to track food and exercise daily. Healthy living has many rewards, and the scale victories will come, as well.

    Getting healthy is the most important part of this journey! The weight has to come off some time! Slow but steady! emoticon emoticon
