Getting Back up after a fall...

Tuesday, August 02, 2011

Hi All,

First I hope everyone is doing well and in good health. I must admit I have fallen of the wagon again. I started exercising June 20th and did a good four weeks in a row 5 days a week, 30mins a day. On July 17th I went on a mini Vaca to visit family in Arizona. I was there for a week, and I did not keep the same routine that I was doing at home. Instead I did walking, I walked a mile 3 out of the 4 days and 2 miles the last day. It was between 95-103 degrees when I walked ( wrong time of the year to visit Arizona), but I had lots of water and was able to manage. I got back on July 22 and since then I have not exercised once.
I don't understand what happened to my motivation. I feel like I have fallen of the wagon so many times why get back on, but I know why because I love myself, I'm a fighter, and because I want to live as long as possible. :) Sometimes those reasons are not enough to get up off the couch and workout case in point all of last week. But every other time they are! I have not been negative with myself which for me is a good thing, but I'm very disappointed. I had lost 5lbs and gained 3 of the 5 back. I'm going to exercise after this post, but any words of encouragement you might have would be a big help for me. If not for today than for tomorrow.

From one Sparker to the next have a good night and until next time sending good health, love, and happiness your way!!:) emoticon

    I used to go crazy asking myself questions like this! It never made any sense to me, like I want _________ why can i not do things to ensure _________. I finally found the right thing for me. I'm realizing, it's not our fault we feel like this sometimes. That negative self talk is more damning than we know. I'm so proud of you for being positive! You can do it! I know you can!
