Any Day's A Good Day!
Saturday, November 10, 2018
Well, I was doing good. I had the small goal of logging in here daily, at the very least, and just spinning the sparkwheel. I would sometimes log my food and water but rarely exercise (because I hadn't taken that step yet). I had a streak of almost a month going and then yesterday...it just got away. So that streak ended...but it's started again, along with some other positives.
I joined the YMCA this morning. There are 2 within 5 miles of my house so I can find something 6 days a week to actively enjoy myself. I recently moved, away from the running trail that was a block from my house, away from the safe, clean sidewalks...so running in my new hood is not an option. I need the gym and while it is a little extra monthly expense, it's worth it in burned calories and gained energy.
I noticed I haven't blogged in almost 2 years. Wow, talk about being lazy. I was running and that was probably being automatically logged here thanks to my runkeeper but I didn't check in and I didn't record my food. That's all changing, because as I get older, I have come to believe what I used to doubt when I was younger...it is so hard to lose weight the older you get! And checking in here, even if it's only liking and/or commenting on someone else's status, in addition to spinning that wheel, motivates me to keep going. My weight, while not horribly high, it's the highest it's ever been for me...and that makes me uncomfortable.
I'll be back at the gym on Tuesday and will meet with a wellness coach to do weight & measurements and recommendations, can't wait!!
So...although I'm 10 days behind, today is just as good as any to put my plan in motion.
Be in the gym 5 days a week with classes and/or weights and machines.
Eating veggies consistently, specifically greens.
Logging my food & exercise daily.
Eat less sugar, no candy!
Don't think you have to start something at the 1st of the month or the first of the week or the first of the year. Every day is a great day to start improving your life.
