Day 92

Today was a total bust. I was busy all day today until 5 or 6 and I got very little done while I was gone and so need to go back and do what I was doing yesterday all day tomorrow while getting ready for a party. By the time I finally got around to exercising it was sleeting outside, so no to that. I am going to do a video before bed and not beat myself up about it. I am going to try for the next few weeks to try not to let my expectations of myself get me all worked up. The fact of the matter is that I am in fact losing weight, and while I really do need to exercise I also need to take care of myself physically and mentally.

Oh the bright side I think I am going to try jogging. Wait. Don't yell at me yet. I dont mean full out running and I am not trying to hurt or punish myself or anything. I am pushing myself. I want to try interval jogging. Like 5 to 10 minutes of walking to warm up and a minute or two of jogging to start, rinse and repeat. I haven't jogged in years, but I actually feel capable right now. I catch myself every now and then jogging in the store or to the car. Nothing extravagant, but I think I am ready to try. Not on the treadmill though. Don't worry though, I'll be careful.

Since I have to take the car tomorrow anyway (we have been trying to go really easy on her since she was fixed so I haven't had access to her for a while) I am determined to go to the gym by myself. I can go through a circuit and some cardio and then maybe the day after it wont be so hard to get myself motivated. I really need to get back into the habit.

Also, off topic completely, can I just say that I love this season so very much!

I think knowing when to be flexible on this journey is a good skill to learn... so good job!

I'm excited... I finally talked hubby into putting up lights tomorrow. I've been listening to Christmas carols on a cable tv station I stumbled across. I love this season, too!

i like the foods you ate today. first of all i think i've already mentioned it, but i LOVE nutella. I DROOL. And that white chicken chili sounds amazing!

good for you for trying jogging! at some point we all have to try something new and up our games and just think if you start with a little now, imagine where you'll be in a few months if you just keep at it and add 30 seconds here or there, or add a minute or whatever. :-)

First off, thank you so much for your comment the other day!
I agree with what Rettakat said, it's important to be flexible. It takes so much effort to not give up when your plan for exercising doesn't work out. I am a planner, and I sometimes do not do very well when things don't go as I plan. It's good you've got other options besides the gym and walking, and I think it's great you're going to try interval jogging. Way to go girl!
