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.
