Day 8 of SOLSC

It seems like whenever I get something going, I tend to get tired of it quickly and it loses it's novelty. Well, exercising is no exception. Our school started this Biggest Loser contest with other schools in the district to see which school has the biggest "losers" that lose the most weight overall. So, I entered it about a month ago and had been pretty good about eating better and exercising 3 times a week for about 45 min to 1 hour. As a result, I have only lost 3 pounds. I'm not sure if it's just water or really 3 pounds. I'm a little blah about the whole thing so I decided to have a heart to heart with myself. 
I said, "Self, you should just get up and do it! There are many great activities that are fun and will keep you interested. Don't forget that spring is right around the corner and now there are even more opportunities to be outside. You know you love being outdoors! So, stop being lazy and think positive! Reinvigorate yourself and start fresh! You can do it!"
I think that is going to work for now. Well see... 
So, my something wonderful for today is that I will start to dedicate myself more to my health and become more active. I mean, I am on day 8 of my blogging. I'm already successful with the writing and next I'll move on to the exercising.  So, here's to a great start!

  4. I have had this SAME pep talk with myself often... but... it still works! I try to imagine the post-workout feeling pre-workout, and often that is enough to motivate me. I LOVE the after-workout feeling! :) Good luck sticking with it!
