The journey is not any easier this time around, but I will say that I am more focussed and more determined. I can't explain it. I just know that I am ready to commit to life-long health. Whether I end up with a shredded washboard mid-section isn't of consequence to me. As of right now, I want for myself to be healthy and fit, and for my clothes to look good on me. I want to dress sharp for work, and I want to look sexy for myself. No doubt Big Red gets to benefit from all this.Wink.Wink.
I struggle like all other busy adults. I get home. I'm tired. There is dinner to cook, and
TV to watch work to to do. I have been very consistent with the elliptical, at least 2-3 times a week. The weather in this here part of the country has thwarted my running a bit, but the severe cold seems to be on its way out. Tomorrow I start my cake/cupcake/cookie decorating class. I won't be running tomorrow after work, but I'm definitely hoping to lace up my kicks on Friday.
I'm trying not to get caught up in how much further I have to go, but rather just focusing on where I am today, and what I need to do to be successful today. I don't beat myself up if I don't exercise, nor do I dwell on having consumed half a donut. The point is I'm making progress.
