Hard starting up

Boy, starting out can be rough but this is ridiculous. I know what I need to do but just making that jump is somehow eluding me. I have been saying tomorrow everyday for 2 weeks now and even I'm getting tired of it. Every day something comes up or I make a terrible decision to keep going to the bad habits. What's even worse is in some areas I'm doing it only to not do it. I get out of bed every morning at 5am so I can hit the shower and park myself on the couch for 30 to 45 minutes before heading off to work. I can name 10 things right of the top of my head I could be doing but don't for some reason. That's plenty of time to exercise. Then on the food side, you know how you get stuck in a rut? Well that's me, but that rut has grown to a trench and I'm clinging onto it like my life depends on it. Seems I have more excuses than results and that saddens me.

But only I can do it and I'm just going to have to dust myself of and get to work. I was really wanting to lose a little of this weight before summer hit, because we got the kids season passes to a local theme park and I really don't want to be trying to walk around that place in summer heat as heavy as I am. Honestly, I would really love to lose enough weight to be able to ride with the kids but I know that's not likely this year. That is one of my goals though and I think I may use that as motivation to get my butt up and moving. The weather is just to nice this time of year and my fitbit is pretty much useless as it stands right now.

Well, anyways, time to start so no time like the present I guess. I'm heading out for a walk on my lunch. Let's get this fitbit some data it deserves.

Have a wonderful day and keep me in your thoughts please!!

Update: Well that wasn't too bad. It wasn't very much, 10 minutes around the building, but that's 10 minutes more than yesterday. Also it seems I have a 15 minute yoga stretch session scheduled for after work, so we'll see.

Update 2: And 15 quick minutes of yoga to boot. Man have I got a looooong way to go. Oh well, one way or the other that day will come. Now I just have to commit myself to being healthy when that day arrives instead of sitting on the couch.


  1. That first step is always the hardest, but once you get that stone rolling you'll have some momentum to help keep it going. Stick with it my friend and next year I'll meet you at Carowinds and we'll show the kids how it's done!

    1. That is exactly it FogDog! A couple of years back I actually show horned myself into one of those go karts and let me tell you, that was uncomfortable. Thank you so much for sharing that with me. Go ahead set the date brother, cause Carowinds is happening!
