The Mulligan. The do-over. The second chance. This is what I need.
I have been stopping and starting for weeks now. I can’t seem to get into the zone, mentally, that I need to be in to change my routine. Every morning my scale reminds me and by mid-afternoon the temptations are too strong. Maybe it’s because it’s summer, but it seems like everyone is bringing tasty treats into the office. I know, that is no excuse, but it seems that my will power is faltering on a daily basis.
It has not been a complete disaster. I have not gained. In fact, I have lost 2.5 pounds so it is moving in the right direction, but not quite as quickly as I had planned. I am being MORE careful with my food choices than I had been, but not as much as I could be.
I have also managed to start a little bit of daily exercise. Only a few stretches, push-ups and a few ab, leg and glute tightening moves. I am hoping to add a little more intensity and more in the way of cardio in the next little while. I decided to start slowly by doing about 10 – 15 minutes a day on the living room floor in front of the TV in an attempt to create a habit. From there I can escalate to a full 30 -45 minute routine and it will just evolve as a part of my daily routine.
I hope you are all having success with your goals. Remember, every move toward a healthy lifestyle is successful, whether it shows on the scale or not.
