That was my question. The answer was, I went. I went walking for my exercise tonight. I am so glad I did. Even though it is still miserably hot at 8:00 at night, it felt so good to get it done. I feel like I accomplished something today. Today was a day where not a lot got done. My little guy was up till early this morning, so needless to say, I was feeling a little lethargic. I did watch what I ate, and now I can say I got some sort of workout in. I can build on from here.
To keep up my momentum, and to give myself a goal, I want to come up with a challenge for September. I am wanting something active, like 100 push ups each day for example. One thing will be some sort of activity every day for the month. Let’s see what I can come up with.
I think that is it for now, the hubby is waiting for me. I have all kinds of things running through my head, I just need to find a way to get them on here. That has always been hard for me, going from mind to paper. I will keep working on it. I want to put a little more of me into this blog. See you all later!
Today I am back in the swing of things. I paid attention and logged all my eating, and I went walking with a friend this morning. It was so good to back into some physical activity and to catch up. We didn’t go at all last week, so I was pretty lazy. Now I am relaxing with my man and my bugboo.
Not too much else going on, just wanted to get back in the habit of blogging. Short and sweet today!
Hello all! I know I haven’t been blogging for a few weeks, but I am ready to dive back in. I was going through a “I don’t really care much” phase. I guess that is bound to happen, but time to get back up. I am ready to start anew, get back on the ball. I find I do much better when I come here to put down my thoughts and actions. Knowing someone is going to read that I ate too much pizza, or didn’t workout all week makes me want to do it. I give you guys permission to tell me to get with it! As I have said before, this is about accountability for me.
I talked with my accountability partner this morning. It has been a little while since we talked about my plans and if I have been logging my eating. I used it as an excuse to not do what I was supposed to be doing. That was the wrong attitude! We talked about some ideas for “consequences” for when I don’t log my food. So far we have come up with a cash amount for each day I don’t log food. This money would go into an envelope for when I need new clothes ( a smaller size of course). We also thought about some sort of physical activity, something that I hate doing. I have seen a couple of motivational ideas on Pinterest too (I LOVE Pinterest). If any of you have some ideas, I would love to hear them.
Another thing I haven’t been sticking with is my workout plan. It is time to put down the excuses and do it. I have to remember how good I feel afterwards. There really is no reason I can’t fit in at least 30 minutes a day. I have a gym membership and a bunch a videos for home. I just always manage to find a way to get out of it. I would love a workout partner, but everyone has such different schedules and other things going on. I think I might start putting the time in my daily calendar. If I see it in writing, on my to do list, maybe I will stick to it. It always feels good to check things off on the to do list.
Well, I think that is it for now, just wanted to say a quick hi to get back in the swing. I will see you all tomorrow!
