Workout out of the way

I have been struggling the last few days with finishing my exercise challenge. Ever since the scale incident I have been feeling like what is the use of exercising everyday. I am tired and don't feel like doing it. Yesterday I was ready to throw in the towel. I had decide I was giving up (with only 4 days left). I put on my pj's, ate dinner and was settled in for the night when I thought what the heck am I doing, I only have 4 days left I have already exercised 15 days in a row I can not give up now. So I changed clothes & hoped on the treadmill for 45 minutes. I did not want to go thru today talking my self out of exercising so I got up at 4:45 this morning & went to the gym. I did 1 hour on the elliptical & I feel great!. Two more days to go and I will succeed.

A loss is a loss

My new weigh in day is Monday. I exercised everyday burning over 4000 calories for the week, I ate well and I lost half a pound. I must admit I was upset at first but then I thought a loss is a loss. If I did not do all the right things it would be a gain. So I will put a smile on my face and take it. Yesterday I did not feel like working out so I made a deal with myself, I will go to the gym & work out for 20 minutes and if I wanted to leave after the 20 minutes I could. I did the 20 minutes plus 40 more I ended up doing an hour on the elliptical and it felt great. Four more days of exercise & I will meet my goal of 3 weeks exercising everyday.

I am recommitting to blogging. I don't know why I have not been blogging as I really enjoy it. I went way over the deep end for about 2 months. I would have one good week and one bad week that then led to one good day 4 bad days. I am proud to say that as of today I have been binge free and have exercised every day since Dec 1st.

I am going to Florida next Saturday for almost 2 weeks and my plan is to exercise everyday until we leave. We are driving down so I most likely will not get any exercise in the 2 days we will be driving but I will try to sneak in a few walks at the rest stops. I will also be exercising while I am on vacation. I plan on making this the first year I lose weight during the holiday instead of gaining.
