It's now 5:08 and I've yet to get in my 10 minutes of exercise. I am so mad at myself for leaving it to do this late. I've decided that I need to jump right of bed and get my exercise in first thing before I find numerous reasons to put off doing it. I dream of the day when it's something I automatically do without even having to think about doing it. Tonight I'm going to have my clothes laid out, plan what I'm going to do and have the video ready so when I get up I just throw on my clothes, go down stairs, turn on the video and get moving. Let's see if this is a better option than waking up unprepared. I'm probably going to find out that preparing the night before will make for a successful workout that gets done instead of thinking about doing it all day. That's my problem, I'm a thinker and not really good at doing. This is going to change!!! I want to get out of this vicious cycle to wanting to loose weight but doing nothing about it to make it happen. This week I'm concentrating on the fitness aspect, seeing what works and what doesn't. If I can figure out a plan that works for me one that I enjoy doing, chances are I will keep doing it. Ive got to eat better, but my focus this week will be fitness. Once I get that down I'll move my focus on healthy eating. Its all about taking small steps to lead me to my goal. You can't eat an elephant in one sitting, it takes multiple small meals to finish it. So as I make one small change at a time in my lifestyle I will be one step closer to to reaching my weight loss goal. Instead of focusing on the whole elephant (pounds I want to loose) I am choosing to reach it in 10 pound increments a time until my elephant has been entirely eaten! Now to get my exercise in for the day! tracked my last meal of the day and I was 132 calories below my low, over 3% on my fats, under 3% on carbs and protein I met my low end. I got in 9 glasses of water. All in all I had a pretty good day food wise. I need to do some tweaking but I'm satisfied with my day. Got in my ten minutes of exercise. I'm sad to say but I didn't get in my 10 minutes but on my challenge I joined the exercise starts tomorrow. Tomorrow I need to move more throughout my day and get my steps up, make sure I exercise in the AM right after I get up. Tonight I'll plan my meals for tomorrow. Today was a good start. I know that I'm going to have bad days, but I'm not going to let that get me down. Life gets hectic, we slip up and make mistakes, but it's from our mistakes that the real learning comes from. Mistakes should be thought of as learning experiences. So here's to my new program and here's to the mistakes that I know Im going to make during my weight loss only this time instead of letting them defeat me, I am going to learn from them. I will figure out what le to eating the wrong foods and what kept me from exercising and then make a plan on how to keep it from happening again. I'm sure I going to be making the same mistakes over and over again, but I'm human and human make mistakes so if I plan for them I won't let them throw me for a loop.

    Progress not Perfection. I like to start my day with exercise. Then I've got my bare minimum done for the day, and if I get more in later, it's a bonus! I think it's a good idea to journal about what went right and what didn't and then adjust your plans. To keep it fun and interesting, I like to try new recipes and different exercise videos.
