I am not feeling it. Tonight I really just wanted to stay in bed and watch The Walking Dead tonight but I did haul my butt to the gym. My original plan was to go to a Zumba and yoga, but for some reason I ended getting there a half hour early and got on the elliptical machine. After 20 minutes I did go to Zumba but after realizing that my moves looked nothing like the instructors and that I really wasn’t getting that great of a workout by half-assing the moves, I decided to get back on the elliptical for another 15 minutes and then jog/walk for another 15. By that point Zumba was ending and yoga was about to start so I went to yoga but was tired and hungry so I bailed after 30 minutes. A crazy and imperfect workout, but better than no workout at all.
The past couple of days my heart has not been into working out. Thankfully I have been eating really healthfully – with the exception of a fun size bag of peanut butter M&Ms (for some reason I have been craving peanut butter lately). But everything has fit into my Weight Watcher’s points plus budget, so over all I guess I have been doing ok.
One problem is that I still want instantaneous results. I know progress doesn’t happen overnight and I did indulge at thanksgiving but I have been at the same weight for the last three weeks. I am excited to get to my weight watchers meeting this week so I can get into the right mindset. I feel like I need to get revitalized and excited about health and wellness like I was just a few weeks ago.
For me, I know it is important not to let a temporary setback become permanent. Hard work always pays off, sometimes it just takes awhile to appear as success.
Peace and Love,
