Feeling positve today...
Because I have stuck to my word. Increased my exercise this week and it's not even Monday yet. Which is giving me more hope for Thursday's weigh-in. I've rode 1.25k on my bike so far. This disheartened me a little because I look at it and think is that all? It's not far at all but I looked back on my bike time and I had stopped because I was tired and hurting. So pushing myself further would not have been worth it. And going from no exercise to exercise I have to take it steady.
I discovered I love taking the family dog for a walk. My family home is near a little wooded area and despite the mud and ice right now, its really pretty. I've only walked her twice but it made me feel so good. I don't consider myself an outdoors type person but walking outside in the crisp air made me feel wonderful and alive. FRESH AIR. Just watching Mia race around the woods gave me energy. I think I have finally found that little buzz from exercise that some of the bloggers talk about. GOOD. It would be hard if I hated exercising.
Wii-ing it. Some don't consider it exercise but some of the activities leave me out of breath and sweating I figure it can't be that bad. I did alot of boxing on it, phew, I stunk afterwards. I worked my little socks off. And doing it regularly has increased the mobility in my arms tenfold. Though I feel my arms haven't lost any weight. Still got those hideous bingo wings. Eurgh.
I'm also feeling good about not over binging on my sisters birthday. I had a small piece of her delicous cookie cake and though my body screamed for more and more I managed to keep to that one slice. Also we had a chinese take out. I didn't eat it all like I usually I do, even if I'm not hungry. And I didn't eat the half my mother leaves either. It was a small step to moderation. But it could have been way worse.
I have more energy and that can only be a good sign. *fingers crossed I stick with it*
