The Right Direction

Thursday, February 04, 2010

Overall, I am pleased with my January workouts. I managed to reach my cardio goal of 5 days each week, with the exception of one week when I only did 4 days of cardio.

My nutrition though, not so much. I haven't been careful, or even counting most days.

I'm choosing today though, to focus on maintaining my cardio habit. It's the most consistant I've ever been with working out. And I am proud of me for that. I will continue to strive toward that consistancy until those mornings when I wake up & try to talk myself out of my workout become even fewer & further between.

I haven't stepped on my scale since the first week of January, and am not worried about it. (big switch for me!) I'm not avoiding it, just not focusing on it. I'm moving every day & that's good. I'm putting my jeans on without having to lie on my bed & that's good too. And as long as that job keeps getting easier, I guess I'm going in the right direction.

    I think that is the way this is supposed to be. For this to work we can't focus on the lbs coming off, or obsessively watching calories. In the long run we will quit losing weight and eventually quit counting calories. This is about changing our LIVES and our habits. I think it is a good thing that you are focusing on one thing right now until it becomes an ingrained part of your life, until exercise becomes such a habit that if you don't you feel like something is missing. I had forgotten how much better I feel after I exercise because I had gotten out of the habit of it. Now I can't say I look forward to exercising (yet) but I do look forward to how I will feel after it. Baby steps add up. Keep up the great work.
