Getting back to Exercise (and another goofy animal picture)
If there is one thing I have learned in this challenge, it is how quickly I can fall back into old habits. I really need this blog to help keep me on track and accountable. I feel like I am doing much better on the goals I am already working toward (Sleep and Food Journal) but exercise, water, and calorie range seem to have quickly fallen by the wayside. I am trying not to beat myself up about this but it hasn't been easy.
For my next goal I have decided on exercise. I went running outside this weekend for the first time since November (Eek!). It was wonderful. I really hope this nicer weather sticks around because it really makes working out so much easier for me, even if I do have to drag the kids along in the jogger. I am using Marci's suggestion and planning my workouts tonight so they are all set for the week. Wish me luck because I think this week may prove to be the most challenging week yet.
On a side note I have set a goal of losing 10 pounds by my family trip the middle of April. This is a pretty ambitious goal for me especially considering I am currently at a weight that is really hard for me to drop below. It is the weight I was at when I hit a plateau the end of last summer and, well, things kind of went downhill (or should I say upscale) from there.
I am hoping the fact that I will have to wear a swimsuit will help with the motivation on this one but I am trying to stay positive and be happy with whatever I am able to lose (inches included).
Okay, off we go. I hope everyone has a fantastic week.
