CHANGE - - - AGAIN
Saturday, July 19, 2014
I have thought for a couplea days about doing this blog. So many things to consider and things I want to say. Have decided that some words will come and some will be left out.
The last 5 months have been difficult due to not being able to exercise (cardio) or do water aerobics. But this will all be over Monday, in time for the break. Still don’t know when I will get to go back to water aerobics, but figure it will be about middle of August, then will have to take it easy.
With all that said, I do look forward to and plan to do my aerobics and continue to do the ST that I have been doing. I feel that the return to this level of exercise will definitely be a push for me as well as a return to cardio which is very important.
In addition to the exercise, my enthusiasm to track every BLT is ahead. I know that I have blogged about this before and it only lasted for a short period of time. But I faced so many obstacles this last 5 months that would have been so much easier had I not had the weight, especially the big belly, in my way. During this time, I have gained weight. Not a tub full, but enough to get in my way and make me miserable.
I want to be able to tie my shoes again, cross my legs, not worry about the booths or chairs in the restaurants, be able to get up out of a chair without trying many times, wear the cute clothes that I bought last summer when I could wear them, not have to use an oversized wheel chair, (hope I never have to use one again), be able to get up if I fall on the floor, be able to get down on the floor to clean in low places, and the list goes on.
The major thing that I need to get back to is tracking my food and track consistently. I know as well as anybody else the importance in tracking. Nobody needs to tell me how or why. There was a time when I tracked every BLT and even took them to my WW class to share with others. Yes, during that time I did lose weight. But I am the world’s worse yo-yo dieter. I have been up and down the scale for 70 years now. I have so much knowledge about weight loss, but just don’t apply it all to my life.
It is a time for change - again - . If I get to return to the BLC team that I want, I will have to change tracking as a requirement for the team membership. So, during the break, I plan to get in the habit of doing my accounting of what I eat. With tracking consistently and returning to cardio exercises, I know that I can - will - be successful.
I have to change my CANABILITY TO WILLABILITY. Only way to success.
