Cooler Weather-Hot Ideas
Friday, September 03, 2010
Well, I did it again. I started the streaks of the 5 different things and it worked for a few days. I had a stomach bug for a few days and most of the things were out the window. So why continue with them? I am feeling better but really down over this whole thing.
So, I have to start over. No colas, no sweets, at least 10 minutes exercise each day, and 8 glasses of water each day will start over on Sept. 4, 2010. I realistically know I will not keep all these going for long periods of time but I do know that it will help me stay on track longer than if I don't make a bargain with myself to try. None of these are beyond my doing them. I found the colas and water were the easiest to do, the sweets not too bad except for special events but the exercise proved to be the biggest problem. I have let myself get into such poor shape and have so much back pain that I have a real hard time doing the exercise. I am trying to take less pain meds so the pain is pretty bad now. From what I have read I need to do the stationary bike for most of my exercise because it puts less pressure on the back. I have one but since the move it won't work with the electrical parts. I can use it without electricity but no resistance, etc.
I know losing a little more weight might help the back pain. I know losing the weight will help my heart disease. I know I can do it if only I set my mind to the fact I will do it and continue on even though I make these stupid back steps. I just get up and start a new day.
