My brother is pretttttyyy sllliiiiick haha!

Friday, August 06, 2010

So basically, when my dad approaches me about my weight issues... I get defensive. The way he goes about it is more like an attack, or him trying to tell me what to do and how to do it, but not in a constructive way.

My brother on the other hand mentioned to me the other day 'hey what if I came over once a week, and we exercised TOGETHER?' This sounded like a great idea. My brother also know when I start exercising and stuff I do really good... but it's *continuing* to do it that I struggle with. So by him coming over just once a week, that'll keep me from stopping exercise altogether (which is when I struggle the most), and might keep me more on track.

I work until Monday then I'm going to Vegas with my mom for 3 days, but when I get back we are going to give this a whirl. I have an awesome park that is across the street from my house and it is a nice park and a nice area, and I've wanted to walk it, but I always think people are looking and judging (I know I shouldn't care, but I do.) But if I have him with me I won't care, and it'll be more fun cause I'll have someone to talk to.

Typically when I'm exercising I start to feel good, which improves my eating habits too... I just need to stop this roller coaster of doing stuff and then quitting and then trying and then quitting. I clearly want this, or I wouldn't still be on Spark... I just need to *do* what I need to do.

    I have the same problem. I start with gusto and then slack off. I also feel better and seem to eat better when I'm working out. Good luck on your journey. You can do it!
