After a few weeks of total denial and frustration I feel much better today. The weather is back to being cool and crisp and that makes me happy. Also I have been doing well on the working out so I feel better about that.
After my last post about making excuses I got up from my desk and went straight to the treadmill and had a fabulous workout. Then yesterday I repeated the process. I am trying to work out earlier in the day (before Noon) so that when I go to eat I make better choices so as not to undo all the work that I have done so far that day. The past two days that has worked. Also the morning exercise seems to give me an boost for the whole day. I feel like getting more things done the rest of the day.
I have been wearing my FitBit...and that is helping me track my steps and calories burned. I am trying to get in 5000 step before lunch. I know it isn't much...but in the last few weeks it is sad to say that there were whole days where I didn't get to 5000 steps at all. Sad.
I have a goal in mind that I haven't mentioned to anyone. I would like to do a 5k. I haven't really made specific plans to do one yet. Just would like to see. I have started trying to run. And let me tell you that is a laugh. I am starting out slow...but still trying to push myself. There is alot of me to get moving and I don't want to strain or hurt anything.
I realized in my time of self reflection that I was working out, but when it got tough I would stop, so this week I am making a plan before each workout and sticking to eat even it I thinks I can't do it. I know it has only been two days but it seems to be working so far.
This week is working on the exercise...next week we are going to tackle the food..
