YeP!! I fell off the wagon of health big time. I could give you all the reasons and excuses but the gist of it is I hit a big immovable wall and quit. I got a little depressed and decided to stop trying. I am ashamed to admit this . It is true anyway. Thankfully I am still breathing so I can pick myself up and start again.....again. I am a few weeks from my 40th birthday and that is weighing heavy on me too. I know it is just a number and that 40 isn't old. I am just bummed that I couldn't or I didn't stick to my guns so that I could start my 40s healthy and fit. I know who is to blame....I just need to see it in front of me so that i can really take responsibility.
I don't sleep well....back pain that i am certain is related to my weight. I am stressed about "stuff" family and finances mostly. Things I can't fix but choose to worry myself sick about anyway. which contribute to the gain or lack of loss in weight. Sooo I am aware of the problem. The biggest thing is my kids....my beautiful, happy, healthy kids they deserve a mom who is more active more .....ME! They have begun to notice that I am not in the best shape. They love me and never fail to tell me so, but I do not want to be an embarrassment to them. All of these reasons are why I must get up and dust off the self pity and excuses and get back up on the wagon and get moving. So here I am again writing another get moving blog trying to inspire myself and motivate myself to change. Only I can......we will see if I will.......this time.....
Good luck to all of you guys who are just starting and great job to all of you who have stuck to it and are succeeding.
I am down 4 pounds in a little over a week. I am feeling the change in more than my muscles. I am getting more comfortable with the routine. I will continue with this exercise dvd for a while longer before I switch it up. Sweat,sweat,sweat!!!
Happy day to all, hope you are all seeing some changes and reaching your goals.
Yes, My muscles are not happy about being forced to do something besides sit on the couch. The rest of me has tried to mutiny but I have won the battle so far.
I am happy to report that a few other people have joined in this challenge and we are going to kick butt.....(mostly our own) and get healthier.
Happy day to all, hope you are all challenging yourselves and pushing your limits. Sweat,sweat,sweat!!! One day at a time, remember the higher the mountain you climb the more beautiful the view from the top.
Day 2....no sleep....sick kids......pushing on. A little sore. Not horrible though. moving has made me less stiff. sweat sweat sweat. Also I am glad to report that just a little exercise clears the mind. I defiantly needed that today.
Day 3. Everyone is feeling a lot better today. I got a good nights sleep so now everyone needs to watch out I can conquer the world. LOL I am excited to start seeing some results but I am glad to say that I FEEL lighter. No matter what the scale/tape measure says. I know that I am unlikely to see significant changes at this point so I am not discouraged. 97 days to go. I should set a goal for what I want to accomplish in this 100 days.........any suggestions??? Thanks
Happy day to all. Hope you are succeeding in your challenges and conquering your mountains with determination and a smile Sweat sweat sweat!!! One day at a time!!!
