A lot has changed and a lot has to change
Wednesday, February 03, 2021
Its been 7 years since I last blogged. Where does the time go and oh boy have a lot of things happened over that period. But I am not going to dwell on the past but focus on my future. In Feb 2020 I was at my highest weight ever. I kept telling my self I would make changes tomorrow or next week blah blah blah. Well in April I starting getting serious about my eating habits and started making changes by August I had lost 25 pounds. Then slowly started to fall back into bad habits and started to gain +4. Again I put a stop to the madness and by mid Nov lost 5 pounds. Then slowly gained them back. I knew I needed to be serious about this and stop making excuses. Just over two weeks ago (Jan 18) I added in a regular exercise. Working from home I was struggling to fit my exercise in the way I had when I worked outside my home. I finally decided that I would ride my bike first thing in the am before I started work. The grils get me up early so why not, except that I am not a morning person. 20 minutes once a day for the first week that was my goal. I just keep telling my self that I am doing more than I was and that is what matters. This week I have added another mid day or evening ride targeting 30 minutes if I can only get 20 I am OK with that too. Already I am feeing better. And dropped 2 pounds this week.
I know what I need to do, I make progress then slowly fall revert back to old habits. The roller coaster that many of us know all too well. But again I will not dwell on the past and feel bad about what I should have done or didn't do.
I need to remain positive and focus on the healthy choices I am making and give myself a pat on the back for not giving into all the temptation around me. I am doing this for me and because I want a better healthier me.
