Slow Start

June 3, 2010 § 6 Comments

Well, it’s been a slow start to the new diet and exercise routine.

I started by weighing myself and taking my measurements…can you say pear shaped?  Anyway, I tried not to get bogged down by the numbers and reminded myself they are merely a reference point so I know if I’m making progress or not.

I started on Tuesday (the first of the month) and ate really well but did no exercises.  Believe me, I did set time aside to do them but at the last minute Hubby’s parents came by and right after they left Daughter had some friends over and I got side tracked by all the activity.

Yesterday though I did manage to do my exercises but I didn’t eat very well.  I had nothing all day until dinner and then I scarfed down a whole homemade meatball sub with lots of cheese.  Have I ever mentioned that Daughter makes the BEST meatballs EVER.

It seems the hardest part of this endeavour is going to be balance.  Big surprise! (sarcasm)

Of course I have absolutely no results to report but even despite the rocky start, I’m still keen on this and feel confident that after another few days (hopefully once I reach a full week) that I will be able to find said balance and manage to both eat properly AND get some exercises in every day.

    Make sure you read my post tonight!!

    And for me? No exercise, and a few glasses of wine after a 12 hour working day today – yikes!

      I did read it and loved it! Thanks.

      To me a 12 hour work day automatically counts as exercise and is deserving of a couple of glasses of wine afterward. 😉

    I’m still working on getting inspired to exercise. I think about it a lot…you would think that would burn a bunch of fat off, right?

    Your new routine sounds awesome. I always guilt trip the shit out of myself if I skip my workout, but some days there’s just too much to do. You can always make up for it the next day.

      Thanks, it does “sound” awesome, doesn’t it? That’s the thing though, I’m not so good at making up for it the next day…I just get better at putting it off. 😉
