Step one

So, I took that step this morning onto the scale.  My attempt to get back on track.  The results of that step were not as bad as I had expected which in itself was a little motivating!  I made a commitment last night to jump on the elliptical this morning and I kept my word!  I will not call it the strongest workout I have ever done but it all starts with that single step.442101-Royalty-Free-RF-Clip-Art-Illustration-Of-A-Cartoon-Sweaty-Woman-Exercising-For-Her-New-Year-Resolution

Tomorrow is another day…we have miles to go, one step at a time!

Put down the chips!

I need a push, a jolt of sorts to get moving.  Recently I seem to have an overall blah attitude.  I seem to lack motivation.  I did a quick google search of the word “motivation” and that indeed confirmed that I lack it!

  1. The reason or reasons one has for acting or behaving in a particular way.
  2. The general desire or willingness of someone to do something.

Today I was productive, changed sheets, did laundry and took the vacuum apart and cleaned it up.  Very exciting! During the week I did the shopping and other needed activities around the house.  Everyone got to practice and lessons and everyone had meals provided daily.  Outside of the normal necessary things, I did nothing.  Not only did I not workout, I could not stop eating these tasty jalapeno potato chips that were on sale.  That makes for a bad combination.  I am very proud of the 40 pounds that I lost and can not allow myself to slide backward.lays-kettle-cooked-jalapeno

So my head tells me a change needs to be made.  Now to get my body to get on board! I need to get focused!  No more chips, I can not be trusted if they are in the house ;-).  I believe the weather has a big roll to play in my mood, grey cold and dreary.  A nice sunny day would be helpful but I can not make excuses.  Tomorrow I will start with a small step, one onto the scale.  From there I commit to time on the elliptical machine. After that, well let’s just take it slow :-).
