Nothing changes if you don't change

Monday, October 14, 2013

That's the problem lately. Whatever habits I started to develop when I started Spark I have a whole new host of bad habits I need to unlearn. All those comfort zones we start falling back into when we haven't finished changing. I don't plan to stay at this weight, I don't care if my body is getting comfortable with it. I am not.

They have redone the fitness center at my gym and it's finally open tonight. I'm headed over there for Yoga tonight, I really am, I promise. Tomorrow I plan to go to body conditioning. Wednesday, Yoga again and Thursday is Body Conditioning. I love these classes, a lot. Every time I make it and I don't get take out, I plan to keep putting that $10 into my savings account for my Dive Master class and Scuba gear.

Slow change again, that's all I can ask for. I really have sunk back into everything I used to do and now it's time to start back on the right road. Are you getting tired of me saying that? I'm tired of saying it too. I need to build live relationships and support at my gym. We're all there for the same reason why not try and come out of my shell and build on that?

Easy 4 day work week this week so I can focus on making better decisions to reach my goals. I'm the only one that can make this work, and with the long nights ahead (it's already getting dark now) the work outs are going to come in handy. Since the beginning of September we've lost almost 2 more hours of sunlight. It's going to be a very long Winter and I'm going to need to be able to carry on through it. I need to keep up with the little things too. Like if I say I'm taking out the garbage on Monday's then I get it done. Too many rules of civilized living can be ignored living alone. I don't want to do that this Fall. Always mindful of keeping up with chores. I have to buy milk on the way back from the gym tonight. It's almost time to go. I'm bringing a lock with me to stow my jacket away. I don't like leaving a pile in the fitness room, it looks sloppy. I'm excited to get into the new studio. They redid the floors and lights and everything. I haven't been in the studio since before Mexico and the incident. Maybe this is a sign and maybe I should wake up and pay attention.

    I hate this getting dark crap. It seems like is getting darker faster this year. I go to work in the dark and pretty soon I'm going to be leaving work in the dark. I get in a real funk over the winter and this year, it seems like it's started sooner than in the past.

    Last spring, my doctor suggested light therapy. I'm starting to think I might have to try it. I'm already on anti depressants for my PTSD and anxiety, I can't go off of them until I have a good solid six months of no symptoms. Great fun!!

    I'm trying little steps... I make sure to pack my gym back when I get home from work so it's ready to go the next day. I have so many other things that I need to do, I just have no motivation to do them. I try to keep a list but forget that all the time too... LOL

    Hang in there. It sounds like you've been doing good. Don't let the little stuff get to you. :)
