I know what I need to do and think about it often however throughout the past few months I have not been doing it. I am talking about what I need to do to get the weight off, to lead a healthier life and to be happier with myself. I NEED to do this before it is too late and I have dug myself deeper and gained more weight then I already have.
I have been thinking about goals and making a plan for some time but putting my thoughts into action has been really difficult. I don’t have a reason or an excuse because it has been a combination of things. Some things I have shared on here and others I have not. Regardless of what has been holding me back I will not allow myself to hold me back anymore. This is an ongoing journey and I need to keep moving forward.
So what now? Make a plan, stick to it, no matter what. So what’s the plan? Will write more about the details later but let’s just stay I am taking it back to the beginning and what I know has worked before….
Dailymile for emailing me and reminding me that I have not logged a workout in 8 days….that is making me more motivated to do something today. 30 minute jog and 30 min yoga on deck…changing into workout clothes now…
Today the fiance and I were supposed to do something fun and summery as this is one of the few weekends we are in town this summer. Well I woke up at 6:45 (arghhhh) and it is rainy and cloudy. As I sit and read tumbler, ww.com and other choice website that I frequent I decided I might as well make use of this rainy day and take some time for myself. I am going to hit up a spin class and Yoga class at the gym. We decided to just do some shopping (tax free weekend here in MA!) and relax for the rest of the afternoon. And I am going to dinner with my old roomie tonight! Sounds like a pretty good rainy Sunday to me!
Went to my meeting this morning and I was down .6! Not a fabulous week but at least the scale moved in the right direction. I did do some things the way i hoped I tracked everything I ate through Tuesday, I exercised through Tuesday and even though after Tuesday I made excuses as to why I did not track or exercise I am back at it today and that is all that matters.
Although my eating and activity went downhill starting Wednesday I am going to my Weight Watchers meeting this morning and I am going to get on the scale. It is the ONLY thing that gets me back on track.
As I mentioned earlier I was going to try my first full Yoga class tonight. Although I was nervous that I would not like it or be good at it I had a wonderful experience. I actually get it…I get why people practice Yoga, I get how good it can make you feel and I get how it could be beneficial to your health and life in general.
The very first pose we did made my abs want to die and I was dreading the remainder of the class. After i endured the pain of what felt like 30 minutes of holding the first pose I was ok. I was able to do everything even if some poses were modified slightly but I was able to do way more than I ever thought I would be able to do! Overall I felt so great during the class and am looking forward to my next class and practicing more Yoga regularly.
