I lost the plot

Postby linda » Fri Jan 06, 2006 9:35 pm

I lost the plot a bit over christmas, no exercise for two weeks because there was always some excuse, first mum came to stay and I didn't want her to think I was deserting her by going to the gym. Then Christmas day I had pavlova, then we went away camping, well I did ride my bike and did lots of walking, but I weakened with chocolate, cheese and icecream. So I put on a kilo this last week. Today I get up and say to myself "get back on track, today go to the gym", so I ride my bike to the gym, a very windy day I might add, so it was hard work, get to the gym, they are closed until next week, BLOODY HELL!!! ride home again and think its hopeless, everything is stacked against me. Then to top it off I look at my membership card and my membership expired today. GRRRRR Being on holidays suck!

My motto - learn from your mistakes.

So you lost it over Xmas, it's just a little set back, use it as motivation over the next few weeks. The important thing is that you get back on track. A kilo not too bad, it could be worse!

Re: exercising - Remember that it's important to look after you - you're worth it, people that care about you will understand, they may even want to join in.

Bad luck about your gym and your membership, especially after a windy ride - does that burn extra kilojoules???

Hope tomorrow is a better day.

When i went to my parent's for christmas, I took to using mum's exercisie bike while we were all watching tv and going for walks when all was quiet. Far from feeling left out, I think i actually inspired mum to start on the exercise bike again!!
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

i had the best motivation today to get back on track. I made a dvd of our christmas this year, we sat down and watched it, and I was being self critical, could still see some "fat rolls" on me here and there and did not like looking at myself on the telly, then my partner suggests watching the dvd from a year ago, my god I could not believe the difference, my face was twice the size with a whopping double chin, my legs and hips were a lot fatter, i could not believe how different i looked only a year ago! and I thought to myself if i stick with it, imagine how great I will look next christmas.

Linda, how clever to make a Christmas dvd.
It sure would be a great incentive to make things better for the next year.

The DVD was a great idea - I have experienced that same thing but with Christmas photos and it really does inspire you to keep persevering.

You're right, a year is a long time so imaging how gorgeous you'll be next Christmas!
