I have to and need to be honest, not doing the best that I can be in the weight loss department. I am not tracking my food, but not really over eating. In fact I know that I didn't eat as much yesterday, no desire to cook or make a decent meal. But, the biggest hold back is the exercise. Even if I am on the unemployment trail and seem to have tons of time to do the exercising, I am not putting it into my daily life. Yes, I have started walking again with the neighbor ladies and we are doing a 5K in May, but I really need to be doing a bit more. Not only do and I know I feel better when I exercise, but there are so many good things that come out of getting in a daily workout - like:
- Better attitude
- More energy
- Looking good
- Fitting into the smaller size pair of pants
- Having people notice I am losing weight
- and listing all of those all over again, because saying them twice is just so nice !!!
Making the excuse of being busy is not a good one for me right now. I realized yesterday that even getting onto the blog for a few minutes or even 30 minutes a day can help boost my need to be a better person. Seeing even the struggles that others are having or the NSV's, or the new goals that are being met are a good way for me to be reminded why I really wanted to lose weight. Not just for me, but for the shear fact that I NEED to do this and there are so many out there that can help me DO this. I am missing so many of you - Chubby McGee, Michele, Alan, Dawn and the list can go on and on. Then there are the new ones that I selected to follow some months back and just don't or have not made the time to really get to know them, but do recommend a few that have inspired me lately - like: Jen, and Mrs. Success.....always good to just take a few moments to see what others are doing and get that jump start.
Just like the other day, when Mer called me and she felt like she needed some sort of kick start to get it ALL back in gear. Most of the time I have these great words of wisdom and an awesome pep talk, but I had lost some of my pep. I then thought of reaching out to the Blog World - wondering what some of you are doing this month for a challenge. A walking challenge, sit ups, 30 days of working out, 8 glasses a day makes you feel great...what might you be doing in the Month of April to keep you going with your workout and weight loss goal. Share with us - we would love to hear and if we have the option to join, then we can. Gives us another way to stay on track - being accountable to ourselves and to others. I will look around, but if you have a link for us, then please share.
Wishing you all a most wonderful Tuesday!!!
