Slacker to the Inth Degree ........
Friday, April 16, 2010
I say Inth because there is no other way to measure my slackerishness!!!
I made a decision after my last few "I'm gonna do it this time" blogs, that I was not going to blog again until I knew I was gonna do it!!! Cause .... I feel great at the time and then the next day I have 892 excuses as to what I can't go to the gym!!! Then comes the avoidance tactic ... I avoid Sparks because I know I posted blog about how I was ready and I was going to do this thing and just didn't!!
I have come to realize that part of my avoidance of the gym is because of all the crap I have gone thru in the past few years with my parents. The gym was supposed to be my safe haven ... my place to go and just get my workout on ... BUT .. I had ben taking my mom with me ... and well ... she started telling everyone up there about all the things that were going on with her and my dad .. and it was not my safe place anymore.
I switched gyms in the last few weeks and I have been going regularly .... I go a few mornings a week and do a tread and shed class and then I go some nights a week with the hub.
I have cut out the coke, once and for all, and I have started eating good again ... I have reached a point that I miss working out, if for some reason I can't go. Sooooo ... we'll see what the next few weeks bring. This isn't going to be a gung ho .. I'm doing it blog ... just a recognition, more than anything, that I have had to check myself, get my act together and stop making excuses!!
In fact, for the first time in a while, I am proud of myself!! And THAT is a good feeling ... I am winning this battle again .... and I like it!!
