This has been me for the last couple of months. I am unhappy with the weight I have re-gained. I know Weight Watchers works. I know how good I felt about myself when I was at goal weight and challenging myself to run a little farther and a little faster. I know how to fix what's broken within me, but I just haven't been able to take that first step to getting back on track.
Why am I stuck?
It's easier to stay stuck than to get going.
There's a heaping dose of honesty.
In addition to being lazy, I have another excuse. I know excuses are worthless, but my other excuse is Daylight Savings Time. I mean has Daylight Savings Time sabotaged anyone else's life? We were walking every night after work. E-V-E-R-Y night. We always did at least 2 miles, but sometimes we really got into the conversation, or found a neighborhood full of fantastic houses, and well, the 2 miles turned in to 5.
We were in a groove and we looked forward to the walks. The walk was dual purposed: mental and physical therapy! And then, Daylight Savings Time happened. It is pitch dark by the time we get off work. When I get home, my brain thinks that it is at least 8 o-clock. It doesn't want to cook supper because it is so late. I don't want to walk on the treadmill because it is so late. All I really want to do is take a hot bath and put on my jammies. Yes, Daylight Savings time (+ laziness) has led to my downward spiral.
I know... Save the drama for my mama.
So, without further adieu, This weekend is it. I commit.
I commit to:
- Packing breakfast in the morning
- Packing lunch
- Exercising at least 30 minutes everyday (& gradually increasing to 60 min.)
- Drinking at least a liter of water a day.
- Minimizing soda intake (like to 1 a day)
Wish me luck!
