Moved to tears...

Thursday, June 23, 2016

Just a very short time ago I didn't want to exercise. I couldn't even consider it. I made excuses why I couldn't/wouldn't do it. Last night I did my 3rd day in a row of exercise. Now this is AFTER walking around the fair for 2 hours, getting home late, and my boyfriend telling me I didn't need to exercise because we walked around so much, AND my friend being at my house when I did get home. So....even if it was only 12 minutes and even if it was only the 3rd day in a row....I am happy, I am proud. I cried this morning because I did it. I didn't even consider not doing it. Now I know I'm just starting, but I'm telling you....this is huge for me. It's the start I needed. And Sparkpeople is the reason why. It is amazing to me the difference in me from a couple of weeks ago.

Tonight, I will workout again. And I will keep working out. My diet is still not great, but I firmly believe that will come with time. I can remember before I got sick of exercising with no results because I was eating like crap. I'm already making "better" decisions and that is a step in the right direction. Now I just need to push myself the rest of the way there. Eventually I hope to get back to prepping my lunches for the week on Sundays. That worked so well for me before. Also, another thing....I haven't even considered going to the vending machine this week. Yes. Heather, 1: Vending machine, 0.

As always, thanks for the support. Thanks for checking in on me. Have a beautiful day.

    Way to go! SO proud of you!

    I know my hubby means well, but sometimes he also discourages my workout efforts. I just have to remind myself that he just does not understand how wonderful the feeling is when a workout is done and the pride I feel in myself for meeting my goal for that day!

    Twelve is even better than 10 ! Way to go! SO proud of you. It takes time, and it takes grouped together moments like that. I always hate it when people tell me I don't have to workout when I REALLY need it. Sometimes it isn't that I physically need it, it is because I emotionally need it, to get it in and feel like I'm meeting my goals! Way to go!
