Well, it’s hard to feel motivated today. I’ve been “trying” to lose weight for 3 weeks now and due in large part to a nasty, persistent cold/sinus infection, I’ve managed to lose exactly two-tenths of a pound. I know, I know. Down is better than up. Still, I said in large part because during the worst of the cold, I consciously made numerous decisions to eat crap because I was sick, tired, miserable, etc. I knew better.
Today, in spite of sinuses that just won’t quit, I am determined to improve. A support group I belong to, Weight-Shedding Freelancers, has been inspirational. So many of the people in this group have shared their stories, their successes and their setbacks, that it helps knowing I am not the only struggling.
Today I have to work. It means long hours of driving in the car and little chance for movement. It is also supposed to rain a good deal of the day so no finding a place to park and go for a walk. However, tonight is the Zumba class at the library. I missed last week because I was sick. Even though I still can’t breathe, I am going to that class. I have got to kick this into gear. I will not be the only one in support group to reach the one-month mark weighing the same as I did when I started.
My goal this week is simple. I will find a way to work in some kind of exercise for at least 20 minutes every day. That’s it. No excuses. And if I don’t, please feel free to kick me in the ass.
