Let me first say, sorry I haven’t updated in the last two weeks as far as my weight loss challenge I was away on family vacation. For those of you who are just beginning to follow my journey. I recently committed to a fitness challenge called “FINISH WHAT YOU STARTED”, however it hasn’t been going exactly as planned. Let’s just say I almost finished before I started.
For me getting started is the really difficult part, as far as eating I really think I have the wrong mind set, I am always thinking if I don’t eat it today that tomorrow or the next day it won’t be around. I think to myself that I better eat it now because I will never find anything as delicious. I know it is ridiculous but this is really how I think. I always want instant gratification, I have no desire to wait and reward myself at the end of the week. I don’t want to have major restrictions on what I eat, I love food too much. Knowing this about myself I know a lot is going to be learning how to limit my portions and also find yummy healthy alternatives.
As far as working out goes, I don’t mind a good workout, however I need to get in better cardiovascular shape in order to be able to workout and not feel like I am about to keel over. Today was a great day to get back to business the morning was cooler than it’s been in a while and I had no other plans so I decided I would join a group a friends who walk every Wednesday as I group. This was perfect for me because sometimes I find it hard to get out the door. Having the support makes working out more fun for me that is, however I feel like sometimes it can be a distraction as well. I say it can be a distraction because usually you are not focused on the mission at hand because you are so caught up socializing.
What are your thoughts on it…is it better to work out with a partner or does it just slow you down?
