A weight loss blog, you say? Really? I'm not seein' it. That little ticker over there hasn't moved in a while. What's up with that?
I have to admit that even though I've been saying I'm back on track, I've not really given it my all over the last month or two. Yes, work has been hectic and it's dang hot outside now, but those are not good enough reasons to put my weight loss efforts on hold.
At work I am very organized and detailed. It's what I have to be everyday or I can really screw things up. When I go home I just want to coast. Relax. Not cook and not cut up veggies or think about what I "need" to eat for dinner. I don't make bad choices, but I'm not working hard at losing. You know what I mean. The small sacrifices we make like choosing fruit over ice cream (even if it is diet). I keep telling myself that after this month when all the testing is over at school and the calendar is all set for next year, I'll be more focused on me. I hope I'm listening!
This week I have been for two bike rides so far. Woo Hoo! Normally, I ride everyday, but for the last few weeks I skipped it all together. Excuse? Tired. Overworked. Brain-dead. Whatever. Not good. It would be nice to have a workout buddy. Someone to say "come on, let's go!" But I can't let that be an excuse either. Needless to say, I did not ride my bike to work like I had planned. I'm sure the motorists are glad of that! Cars seem to hate bikes on the road. They don't really bother me, but that may be because I like to ride and I'm not usually in a big hurry to get to point B.
So, what kind of blog is this? It's a blog about change and choices that ultimately lead to weight-loss. It's me trying to get it through my thick skull that I really do want to be thinner. That I deserve it and it's okay to put myself first. That is a change in itself that is hard for me.
Put yourself first. It will be okay. Drink lots of water today and everyday!
