The Rebellion

It started a couple weeks ago. I stopped updating my consistent activities list. It's a list of things I want to do consistently this year. Stuff like exercising, reading, writing in my journal, going to church, reading my Bible and praying, etc. I got tired of keeping track of my progress, or lack thereof in some areas. I started out so well too. Exercised 4-5 times a week, and felt so much more toned even though I hadn't lost fat weight yet. Then I fell off the wagon and got lazier and lazier. Sign. It's not defeat. I just need to come up with an action plan to get back on track. Last weekend I ran 3 miles on Sat and 5 miles on Sun. I was going to go to the cardio interval class at the gym on Tues, but it was my birthday and Todd took me out to dinner. Then I was going to go to the gym on Thurs, but I had to get up at 4:45 am for a 5 am conference call for work and felt too tired to work out after work. I've gained about 5 lbs since last July. I just feel more "puffy" and "doughy" than I'd like. Yes, most people would be happy with 120 lbs, but on my small frame I'm happier with 115 lbs. So I am going to be more consistent with exercising and hope to lose the 5 lbs healthily in 3 months. Oh, today I ran 3 miles at the beach, but then promptly went and ate two pieces of pizza at Bongiorno's. But it's my favorite and it's so close to where we run by the coast! I know I just need to make it a priority. When I used to work out in the morning, I did it pretty consistently. Now I work out after work and it's less consistent. Maybe I should go back to the morning workouts. Or maybe I need a goal, like training for a half marathon again.
