No really, this time with feeling!

Monday, April 26, 2021

Ouch. A few years since I "started again" and here I am, heavier than before. But this time I mean it.

My excuses: I retired. My Mom needed lots of care and then died (November 2019). I'm post-menopausal. I'm lazy. I like sweets. Pandemic "stay home, stay safe" and husband working from home meant feeling indulgent and being more sedentary. I broke my toe a couple of weeks ago and it still hurts to walk.

My motivations: My clothes are tight. My skin feels tight. I don't like the way I look. I'm out of shape and lack endurance. I know it's not healthy for me. I don't want to be diabetic. I want to be an example to my husband. My friend has been doing it, so I can do it.

What I like about myself: I have great hair. I've started adding little things to my daily routine and proved that I can do that. I have an inquisitive mind.

Things I need to work on: Thinking about doing instead of doing. Telling myself what I'm doing wrong instead of celebrating what I'm doing right.

    It's like the Nike slogan "Just Do It" or the t-shirt I once saw that said, "If I'd gone running the first time I'd thought of it I'd be back by now." I tend to think about doing things instead of actually doing them. I need to get out of my head and into the world more.
