Gotta step it up.

Sunday, December 01, 2013

Sometimes I think "man, I really need to get serious with my weightloss." But I am going to stop saying that because I have been serious about it for a long time. My doctor, parents, husband, etc. all think I should be a little more aggressive with my weight loss. I can't say I don't agree, but man it's overwhelming.

Of course going to the urgent care over the weekend and being shuttled off to the hospital to make sure my chest pains were not a heart attack, yeah, that is more overwhelming. Nothing like a heart attack scare to make you rethink your goals. I mean, I am only almost 40. I should not be having chest pain. Of course it is most likely anxiety and stress related but still. I need to find a better way to deal with it.

Just so you all know, I am doing the doctor thing. They have me on lots of mood and anxiety stabilizing medications. Now the only thing left to do is to get this extra fluff off.

Why does just thinking about amping up my game make me so tired?

So, in the name of momentum building I will be planning my work outs one week at a time. That is about ALL I can handle right now without breaking out into a panic attack.

Of course my job makes things really challenging to get to the gym so I am thinking this week I will try my first spin class and then go to two more classes on the weekend. I am shooting for 3 times a week. It's gonna be really funny watching me get my rather large behind on the little spin bikes. Man. Good thing I am super good at doing things that make me uncomfortable.

Anyway. I think I have a handle on the nutrition part, and water intake is up too so that is good. I have already lost about 5 of the "went back to work full time after 8 years of staying home with the kids 15 pound gain" 10 more to go and I am back on track.

Alright. It's time to get serious. :p

    I'm glad to hear you're OK after the trip to urgent care. Starting with a short term plan sounds great! No need to set up overwhelming goals, just simple persistence.
