This week has not been a great week for me. I excercised 4 times last week (my goal is 6), but so far have only excercised on Monday of this week. AND I only made it for 30 minutes on the treadmill. I am SO TIRED! I'm not sure what the deal is.
Also, went to a bridal shower, and a celebratory dinner with little bro's fiance , and ate some things I shouldn't have. So I am up a little from last week. I'm seriously bummed.
I need a pep talk ladies! Because tomorrow's the wedding, and I don't know if I should just enjoy it, or if I should try to be really strong and not eat any of the scrumptious wedding food!
Today's question from Amber is how we stave off temptation. One thing I have done in the past, and need to do again is I make a list. I list all the reasons I want to get healthy - from the most shallow (like I might accidently run into an X from high school), to the more important (like how I want to have the energy to do fun activities with my children). I keep this list on me, then refer to it when I'm feeling really weak.
Also, to resist the temptation to quit before my treadmill time is up, I have some pictures taped to my treadmill. I know this is really dumb, but sometimes vanity is the ONLY thing that keeps me motivated. So the pictures...remember this picture I "made" of myself here?
Well I have the actual pictures of Jessica Alba taped on my treadmill to remind me that I can't give up! She's someone who takes great care of herself, and looks great as well (not unhealthy, but definitely trim!) Go ahead - I know I deserve a lecture on how I shouldn't be looking at a celebrity for my ideal body image, and I should be doing this for health reasons (which I am), but like I said, sometimes vanity motivates me more than logic.
I'm not giving up, even though I'm frustrated today...Next week will be a better week!
