Getting back on the exercise bandwagon because my clothes are getting tighter and not in a good way. Since I refuse to buy new clothes in a bigger size I decided to have Jillian Michaels kick my ass again. Today I restarted the 30 day shred. I forgot how much I truly hate exercise and how much I love the way I feel after. I wish there was another way however I have tried only watching what I eat and by watching I mean watching everything that goes into my mouth. I tried logging my food and I totally admit I cheat. I can’t be honest with myself and for that reason I have returned to exercise.
Have I gained a ton of weight since I started working? I have gained 25 pounds (okay fine 28) and no one believes me. I wear my weight well and everyone says I look the same, not sure if they are saying that to make me feel better or if it is the truth. I know I feel awful like a slug actually I think slugs are more active than I am on my days off. I started realizing this when I got a FitBit, days I work I have around 8,000 steps (mostly higher). On days I don’t work I average around 2,000 steps, it is amazing what happens when you are writing papers on your days off.
After all my excuses I decided to start from scratch and log my journey, again. I need some motivation and accountability, so I decided to chronicle this journey. Good or bad maybe this will help me stay motivated. I was far happier when I was exercising, slept better and my back didn’t hurt as bad. Maybe it will help me be more creative because I have very little creativity happening right now.
Thoughts for today as I start I hate exercise, I mean really hate exercise but I like how I feel.
