Blog challenge day 21

Monday, January 13, 2014

Day 21. This is a long one. You just spent three weeks reflecting on yourself and your journey to a healthy lifestyle. Write yourself a heartfelt, loving intention to help you reach your goal.

I finally arrived at day 21.....some months later emoticon

I will continue my weight loss, mostly for myself, because I want to be healthier and be able to move better. Hopefully I'll be able to take care of myself longer and be less of a burden on a caretaker. I am also doing this for my husband, to enjoy more of life with him.
I'm continuing to work on exercising, even though this is so much harder than just eating well. I am too tired and stop exercising for weeks, so I'm now trying to walk shorter periods of time more times a day. So far today two sessions of 8 minutes have gone well even if it was difficult. Strength training, stretching and other forms of aerobic exercise are in the plans but after I regain some physical fitness.
I am going to work hard for all of the above reasons, not worry too much if I have setbacks, because I know I am trying the best I can do.

    Now you can work on your exercise goal. Just keep moving. Over the long term it gets easier even though there are days that will be monumentally hard. Just remember, the problem is almost always in our heads and not our bodies.

    Have you ever tried the Leslie Sansone dvds? I used them for months until I felt ready to start a waddle/walk/jog routine.
