How many weeks of starting over?
Monday, April 26, 2010
Okay, I think I have to get back to my original goals - a healthy day every day. I'm not sure where I lost that thinking - there's been too much pity party stuff going on this spring.
I can't believe, at almost 51, that I'm so influenced by what others think. One of my issues these days is that a long-time online group that I'm part of has had a spate of women rushing to have bypass or lapband surgery. I'm against this type of surgery as anything but a very last resort, in part because I don't do well with surgery, but in part because it's a tool like any other and I keep hearing reports that the weight still comes back, and since that is such a drastic thing to do to one's body, it really scares me. At the same time, as I watch their numbers drop, I feel like maybe I'm not doing the right thing and I stifle those emotions by NOT doing the right thing.
I'm also starting to stress again, and I know that's because I've let go of my DAILY exercise routine. I haven't let go of exercise, but I'm not doing it every day, as I was earlier. Now, I've had pretty legitimate excuses in terms of both my ganglion cyst and especially the inner ear virus, but now that both are dissipating, it's time to get moving again. I did do my full workout and yoga routines, and am about to start my strength training and I AM feeling better for it.
Hope everyone starts off with a productive Monday!
