I am back on the fitness journey--finally!

I have been journaling for the past 3 days, and wow, does it ever affect what you put in your mouth!-- I just read ""MobyDick's"" blog, about how he is back on the fitness journey asnd how good he feels. I wonder how many of us, let life , just get in the way?--- You know--Birthday parties, MacDonald's fries, pizza--- and then, discouragement sets in , and we quit---
I haven't quit--- but, sometimes, I wonder why I wasn't putting what I learn on here into practice?--like--I was coasting-- Somehow, I knew that one day I would get my act together --- I also knew , that if I quit Sparkin', the scales would climb very high once again---
But------(the big ""but""!)------ I am journaling----I am exercising--- 30 min. treadmiling seems like a L_O-O-N-G time---- I am trying to get that water down my gullet--(that is a lot of water!)---- and I think---I THINK--I see the scales thinking about moving--down----
I have no choice---
If I don't do this now, my knee will begin to hurt once again----I will look like ""Limping Lena"" -----
So-----another day is starting--- the journal is on the table---- the treadmill is waiting , with Coal, my "" GSDog -coach""-- ready to climb on the sofa , waiting to get me back into shape--the ol' runners are by the door ready to walk down our long hot country road--
So Sparklers--Are you with me?--I am an old lady--
I need yoyu beside me--
Here we go----
Another day has begun!

    emoticon Pace yourself, take it easy so it can be consistent, and then "charge!"
