Another Day, Another Workout (etc.)

Tuesday, August 06, 2019

I had been doing Jessica Smith's Walk Strong Six Week Transformation System and reviewing it here for the last several blogs, but then something happened. Well--actually, nothing happened and I just stopped doing the workouts and the accompanying blogs. If my schedule gets thrown off just a little bit these days, I just don't get my workouts done. And that's what happened, I guess. I finally got back into the workout groove, but I didn't do a Six Week workout. I just didn't feel up to it. I think the Six Week workouts were maybe a little harder than I expected and I was starting to dread them, maybe? So I may be doing some easier workouts for awhile. I will see what happens.

Today I chose to do an oldie but goody: Madeleine Lewis's "Get Moving for Weight Loss," which I actually reviewed in an SP blog eight years ago! I did two 10-minute segments of cardio and lower body toning, and followed up with a good stretching routine on my own.

I'm proud of this accomplishment today. I just don't know what to think about myself lately. I am unhappy with my situation (being overweight, retired and home alone). I want to do something, but I feel so sluggish and unmotivated and rather depressed. It's difficult to want to do anything when I feel this way.

I will keep trying, putting one foot in front of the other and I will see if I can motivate to eat healthy foods again. My eating has been lazy (as in not trying to prepare good things for myself) and unhealthy. Some days will be good, some days will be better than others, and some days will be complete duds, at least until I can get myself back to feeling worthy of good things. I've gotta work on that. I've got to fix it!!

Until next time...

    Take it one day at a time. Timeouts work then start over. Keep going.
