I have to admit I am extremely frustrated this week. I gained 4 pounds. I am right back where I started in the beginning. Granted it is likely mostly water weight but I really would like to see a change for the better. I need to get more serious about exercise and quit making excuses. Why is it so hard to move exercise up on the list of priorities? I would suppose it is just because in general I don't take a lot of time for myself no matter what.
I am the mom who does for everyone else and rarely for myself but seriously if I don't get this weight off am I not just cheating them out of the mom I could be? Do you ever just hang out on the sidelines because of your weight not participating for the fear of looking foolish? Yep that is me on a routine basis. I hang out with the great group of boys in our Boy Scout troop but I struggle to keep up with them on a long hike or such. I still try but I tend to get frustrated with myself because I am only 33 and I should be able to keep up. Or when the kiddo wants to shoot hoops and I ache at the thought of trying to do that over and over.
Well this week I am going to take a tip from Bob on The Biggest Loser. He talked about being on vacation this week and how it is easy to find a flight of stairs and just go up and down them for 20-30 minutes. It provides a great workout to add in some stair dips. I have stairs right in my house and I think I can find a clock to keep me on track.
