Starting a New Week

Monday, August 05, 2013

I've been struggling with motivation, especially this morning. Monday mornings are always rough, we were all running late, and I wonder what it's all for. Is it worth it? Will I lose weight by restricting what I eat and exercise? Theoretically yes, but when you toss in the thyroid issue, nothing is certain.

Fortunately, this morning I've stumbled across some inspirational stories. I'm on this journey for my health, not for weight loss. I need to show myself that I am worth it, and I can do it. I forced myself to the gym, despite my late start. I had to cut my workout short, but I made it to work with 1 minute to spare. I'm off to a good start with my water, and I ate my morning oatmeal with yogurt and fruit. Now I breathe for a bit before my next meeting, and stay on track for my next meal. One at a time.

    Mondays are hard for everyone. I do not exercise on Monday because is my late day at work. Maybe you can a day off on Mondays and work out for a least 5 days in the week. emoticon
