Continuous Improvement

I've often joked that losing weight has been my second full-time job. I'd been a professional dieter since grade school.

Now I look at things a bit differently. It's not as much about the number on the scale as it is about overall health. I'm always looking for ways to get better, and set goals that don't ignore the scale, but don't use it as my only barometer of success.

I keep a "dashboard" of indicators to monitor my health now. How do I FEEl? What are my measurements? What are some small ways I can improve each month? I still have some weight to lose, but now I'm training for the long haul. I'm learning how to make this weight loss stick!

OMG... I'm at that "oh my gosh, this is hard!" stage too! lol So I know what you're talking about. One thing I do that helps a lot with the timer/clock watching is listen to good, upbeat music. I just pop in the earbuds and start my playlist. Another thing that helps the time to go faster is a good audiobook. I've been picking up audiobooks for a few years now from Audible.com. But as far as listening to a book while working out is concerned, it HAS to be a compelling read (listen!) or it's too easy for me to get distracted and start watching that ol' timer again.

Anyways, I don't know if either of those interest you. I just thought I'd share a couple of things I do that help when my only option for cardio is the recumbent bike or elliptical. I really prefer DDR or outdoor walks/hikes to get cardio in. But we do what we have to. :-)

A class sounds like it might be the way to go. Have you ever tried Zumba? I have the DVDs that I use at home sometimes. I can see how an actual class could be a lot of fun!
