angry with myself

Wednesday, October 27, 2010

after all of my hard work to lose my first ten pounds.. I have let myself put it right back on.. I am so mad because I was doing so well and liking to workout and get in that personal time. I was doing the c25k plan and going along steadily.

Then I had the friend who wanted to get together every night for drinks and tv. It was ok at first..

Then my friend tells me that she wants to start working out too so we should workout together (I should learn my lesson when people tell me this). This is the biggest lie in the book.. It starts out well then it becomes.. 'oh i'm too busy to do it today...' or 'oh i'm not feeling well' and by the time I know it a full week has gone by.. I have not worked out in 2 weeks..

I know that is no excuse for not working out because it is up to me but I thought that by working out with someone else I would have more motivation to stay on track. Guess that is not the case..

It also doesn't help that everyone I know back home is losing weight left and right.. man today is a depressing start to the morning..

I'm off to have tea and then work..

    Shake it off and start again! This is a huge moment. You have learned something! This journey truly is up to you. All the friends who say they want to help or join you in the exercise game REALLY DON'T WANT TO! Its talk! And the getting you to hang out and have drinks knowing you are trying to live a healthier lifestyle is sabotage. Misery loooooves company! They may not subconciously realize they are sabotaging you but a part of them knows exactly what they are doing. Thats why they offer to "exercise" with you. Its to make you feel more comfortable about your poor choices and it keeps them from feeling bad that they convinced you to get off track.

    Now is the time to start over! You have lost 10 lbs before so you know you can do it again! SO LET'S GET MOVING! Get back on that exercise program and let's shed the pounds! I prefer working out alone. when other people are around I get distracted because all I want to do is socialize. Motivation comes from within. So dig deep! It is within you to do! FIGHT FOR EVERY MOMENT AND RISE TO YOUR GREATNESS!!! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Hey it happens, all you can do it get right back into it. Tell your friend if she wants to hang out you will be working out and she is welcome to join you. Its hard not to let those things get in the way but remember you are doing this FOR YOU! No one else can do it for you and no one can stop you! Good luck!!!

    Dont't be mad. Life happens! Just get back to the program. You know what you need to do to lose those 10 lbs again, it should be easier this time, since you *know* you can do it!
