Well, after only a week, I have been up early 5 out of 7 days to do some sort of workout. I haven't completely fallen off the bandwagon and I'm feeling sore in places that I never knew could get sore.
I have taken back one pair of shoes and I'm searching for another. I need a good supportive shoe in which I can do my aerobics workout. Even though I do it on the floor at home, I can't do it shoeless. So the last few days I've been doing Pilate's and targeted muscle toning. It feels good, but I'm not getting the caloric burn that I'd like to accomplish.
I can't seem to stop putting calories in, however, and that is frustrating me. I'm trying to stay focused on the goal, and take baby steps. I have pretty much eliminated all the junk food in the house, but it is the quantity that I have a problem with now.
There will always be an ongoing battle between fat-girl and skinny-girl inside me. I know I can do this, I've lost weight and felt good about it before, it's just the dailiness and monotony of getting into a new habit.
It's so easy to have two pieces of toast instead of one. The toaster has two slots so why not just do another one. It's so easy to eat a whole package of trail mix, when I read on the package that there are two servings inside. I have to break out of these habits and replace with good ones.
And therein lies the problem.
I'm making some motivational signs to post on the pantry doors and the fridge. That helped before.
Will update again soon.
