You may have read my previous post about going back to Jenny Craig to gain back my old body. I am so happy I started before Thanksgiving and am happy to report that I am now down 17.5 pounds! I love this visual about habit because it is so true.
I am a creature of habit and needed to change my routine and create a new habit. My motivation was my frustration at looking in the mirror and hiding behind my kids in pictures. This week I added my workouts back in to my routine. I really needed to focus on just the food at first but now it was time to add exercise. Up until about 2 years ago I was teaching Step Aerobics, Strength Training, Cardio Circuit and Abs. It was a part of my daily routine to go to the gym at work at lunch. I got out of this habit and I knew I needed it back.
This week I am happy to report that I worked out 4 days! Not up to what I used to do, but I will take it. It is a start and I didn't injure myself. I tend to go all out when I go back to it thinking I can do what I did before, but this time I realize I need to scale it back and try to do what I can do in my current body and fitness level. I think this is a great realization for me. In the past I have tried to do what I used to be able to do and I end up injuring myself and getting frustrated.
I know I can do it! I just need to keep going and take it one day at a time.
I am still evolving and have a ways to go, but I know I can get back to the Gilda I used to be.
