Work out Woes

I did it!
  I joined a gym!
I bought new sneakers.

The first two weeks I was gung-ho!  It felt good!  Wahoo!  I used the treadmill and even walked the dog a lot more than normal.  I was eating better. No more snacking. I was feeling great!

Well, not too great.  My muscles were complaining.  I told them to quiet down, exercise was good for them.

Then it happened…… Aunt Martha paid a visit. You know, that dreaded thing that comes once a month and overstays an unwanted visit.  The thing that makes you eat every chocolate item in the house.  The thing that makes you feel bloated and icky.  The thing that makes you cranky and weepy. The thing that makes your insides cramp up and scream "I need more pain meds!".

I didn't go to the gym that week.

I gained back the few pounds I lost.

Those few pounds may seem insignificant.  To me, it was a milestone to a new beginning.

I am so tired of having my boobs touch my stomach when I sit down.  Now it's time to shake my fist at Aunt Martha, get back on the treadmill and try again.

  4. Thank goodness I haven't had that problem in 10 years! My husband and I lost the weight and this is the way we hope to KEEP it off.....I taped a picture of us in bathing suits (we looked like beached whales) on our bathroom mirror. We see it first thing every morning! :) You can do it!

    P.S. I had the worst cramps when I did have those awful visits!!!
