I am back walking. 30 minutes. Well, today I walked and ran, yesterday I only walked. So that is good. I followed Andrew's advice and forced much water, and I feel much better. I am glad for this piece of advice. Thanks
It took a great deal of mental pushing to get myself downstairs to the treadmill. I had made a new goal on SparkPeople. That was to get down there before 8 am. I have found that if I don't exercise before this time, I just struggle with it all day. I spend the whole day dreading it, not getting in the shower, just procrastinating. So I had to make that goal to help me downstairs in the morning. I have a time limit.
That is all. I have been doing weights on T, T, S. I have noticed myself inching back up on the scale to almost my original weight. They say muscles weigh more than fat, but this is very discouraging. I ate some chocolate yesterday. Isn't that the routine?
Today I am watching what goes in my mouth and not losing my perspective. I need a visual. I need a picture of the DIL2 who inspired me to start this in the first place. She has lost, I think, 30 pounds, she is back fitting comfortably into her wedding dress. She looks absolutely beautiful, and I want to follow suit. She is running half marathons. She did this in less than a year. I am so proud of her and grateful for her example. My two oldest sons have committed to exercising 60 days straight, Sunday's excluded. I didn't want to be left behind, so I joined them a week later.
Here I go again. Wish me luck. Urge me on, send me pictures and inspirations. Go Team!
