To go, or not to go…

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!

Monday, Monday….

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!

I’m Back!!

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!

 

Love,

Erika
