Doing it again...
Monday, July 22, 2013
I spend more time making excuses not to exercise than it would take to actually do it. Sad but true. I read a blog the other day that said you have to be ready to do the work to succeed and not just want to be thin. Is that me?
I got on the scale this morning and it read 185. 1-8-5. On a five foot one inch frame. I have never weighed this much, not even when I was pregnant. And the sad thing is that every pound was put on with a fork. I have no health issues that I can blame. Well, maybe menopause. However, I've read plenty of success stories here of women older than I so that's a shaky excuse at best. My number that always snapped me into action was 169 and here I am 16 pounds above it. Another 16 pounds and I'll be at 201.
I'm so ashamed. And still I procrastinate. I am going to get on the treadmill. Even if I only do ten minutes, it's ten minutes of exercise.
UPDATE: After procrastinating for another hour (grrrrrrrrr) I did fifty minutes on the treadmill and feel great. The getting started bit is my biggest stumbling block.
