Ch Ch Ch Changes!
Sunday, January 21, 2007
I cannot believe I am only 5 pounds from losing 100!!! It doesn't seem possible. It has taken so long to go away that now that so much is gone, I can't remember what it was like to be there. I only know that I don't want to EVER go there again!
There have been so many people helping me in my lifestyle change, and I want to thank all of you. KCSIEG for getting me off my duff and walking again, RW and Skinny for encouraging me and challenging me, everyone on the Over 50 bootcamp for not letting me rest on my excuses... My riding coach and my husband.
Talk about excuses, how easy are they to come up with??? I don't feel well, I'm tired, my foot hurts, I have to work, I have to clean house,,,,,,,,,,,, and on and on and on.
The secret, I have found is to ignore the excuse and just go out and exercise. You always feel better for it after, it is just that lazy 2-yr-old that lives in my head rebelling about missing his "nap"! I know we all have this child in us, or we wouldn't have looked like our before pictures!! Food is excuse bound, too. Journalling has helped me keep the food from being as much of an emotion-driven thing.
Here's to a good week. The snow is falling out at the barn again, so riding may not be an option tomorrow. Strange, I thought I lived in SE Arizona!!
