Starting over sucks. Am I right?! Not 5 months ago I was in a fantastic routine. Walk the kids to school in the morning, work out during nap time and then walk the kids home in the afternoon followed by a 5 mile walk in the evenings with my neighbor. My routine now looks NOTHING like that. Now I drive the kids to school in the mornings and afternoons bc it’s cold and usually rainy. I spend nap time either working or cleaning the house…or let’s be honest…messing around on the computer, finding any excuse not to work out.
It’s awful and I hate it and I just need to STOP IT!
I have gained about 5lbs in the last 4 months. Not terrible considering I am not working out consistently and not eating horribly, but definitely NOT what I want. I feel like crap. I am squishier. I am not fitting in my clothes like previously. Yes they still fit, but there’s a lot more jiggle than before.
I’m wearing baggier clothes so I don’t have to suck my stomach in and I’m not as apt to get dressed and look nice because I don’t “feel” nice on the inside.
I’ve just had it.
I hate it.
Starting over SUCKS so I’m just going to keep GOING from now on!!!!
I was sick last week and I was going to start this little routine again then, it never fails. I know when my body has had enough of my crap – literally. I ALWAYS tend to get sick when I am not eating my veggies, taking my vitamins consistently and I cut back on my exercise. The crazy thing is – I KNOW ALL OF THIS!!!!!! Seriously. I preach it to people ALL. THE. FREAKING. TIME. Yet here I sit on my ass, typing away instead of moving my body!
Ugh. I’m so irritating sometimes.
So. I wrote that top part and then stopped what I was doing and I totally worked out today. I did. My lungs needed a fire extinguisher, my legs feel like they’ve been punched a thousand times and well my heart – I thought it was going to explode at one point. But it hurt so good. I’m not sure I can commit to 7 days a week of exercise, so I’m going to commit to at least 3 days a week. That’s how I started last time so that’s how I’ll start this time. I know myself pretty well and eventually I’ll end up at about 5 days a week, I’m just not there yet.
This was me this September when I was in a good routine with my eating, exercise and Shaklee supplements.
