Fitness Friday- Let's get started again!!
Loosing weight and eating fit is so hard when the Support system is not there. I do not care how many times one said "I am doing it for me" or" It's for my Health, to live longer" or again " I want to see my child get married and be a grandmother". With out the support of one another and comments, encouragement , crying and laughing of people(followers) it is easy to slide back. When Your family does not have (or are not concern with) the Healthy eating issue. Then the will power go out the window. Pizza nights, Eating Out , Not wanting what is cooked or just eating the snacks, all of these throw blocks to our eagerness to get fit.
I have found this week to be hard. I have Blogged my difficulties and even some knowledgeable material. I have researched some other tools to use. Have gone into my library of a long list of exercise DVDs , videos, books and equipment I have purchase through the years to help with stay fit.
I will say I have a bounty , Tony Little, Jane Fonda, Patti Duke, Richard Simmons, Billy Blanks-Taebo, Windsor Pilate's and many others. Then there the books; Weight lifting to a fitter you, Escape your shape, Diets don't work, the Pilate's directory and I am sure others lost in the book piles. How about the machines; Treadmill, stepper, thigh master, row machine, gliders, Pilate's machine, the new Wii fit and all those that we got rid of. Finally let's not forget all those hand weights, stretch bands and door pulleys we have laying around. With all these tools the weight is still there.
So, what is missing? I know for me it is a support system that is not Weight Watches (group weigh in) but one that it laughing and crying and giving me the go go girl! My Mom used to do that and even though I slid back she still laughed, cried, listened and stuck with me.
So how did I fair this week? Not Good!! Gained some weight. Eating comfort food felt nice, because of some stress factors. This next week I will work harder on trying to exercise when the stress and sadness comes on. My thought is if I replace the old habits with a new healthier habit I will feel better.
I will continue to blog each day as to my progress. Helping me to deal with the feeling of overwhelming issues.
