Hello :) It's Tuesday again and, as usual, I had my date with the scale this morning. My weight is 176.22 lbs this morning. I am down 0.88 lbs from last week. It isn't a huge loss, but it's a loss. I will take it!
In my last post I mentioned how well I was doing with my eating. But you may have noticed that I didn't mention exercise. That is because I wasn't doing it. None, at all. Anyway I decided to get back on track with that too. I am committing to my minimum half hour per day again. I am really glad that I did. Yesterday I worked out for one hour on the Wii and then I did my crunches and weights. This morning I have already completed my half hour and I feel really good.
When I get off track and skip workouts I end up making a huge issue out of it in my head. I will think things like "I need to start working out again" and turn it into this big huge thing in my head and then I end up not doing it and time goes by. I realized that I was doing this and I stopped and thought that instead of making a huge deal about working out everyday, and getting back into it, and worrying about how much I should workout - I need to just get moving!!! So I did. I worked out yesterday and I worked out today. I stopped worrying about the details and I stopped planning a workout and I just moved. And, not at all surprisingly, I feel great.
I didn't even realise I was sabotaging myself, but I was. I was getting so caught up in thinking about what I should be doing that I wasn't actually doing anything. Sneaky, sneaky, sneaky!!! Does anyone else do this? Anyway that's it for today. I have plans for today so I better get moving.
Bye for now,
