thanks, Ladies! Always nice to have support and back up. I feel like my head is back in the game an I'm ready to really dig in. I did my first Barre3 video this morning - I picked the easiest one - 10 minute warm up and legs workout I made it 8 minutes and decided to stop. I don't want to push and be really sore tomorrow. I want this to be something that I can work into slowly and build up my strength and stamina. I look at several of the videos - they seem to be very doable - but I will go at it slowly so I don't get discouraged and give up.
I haven't walked for a couple weeks so basically I've been a slug for the past 2 weeks! It feels good to have a plan that is easy and doable and I don't have to go anywhere! I have enjoyed the walking - but I need something new and fresh.
Marcadav - I agree with the food plan being very restrictive - I feel like I need to start off in that mindset - just for a couple weeks - then maybe I will move to a more gentle approach. As for the reward.......... I'd rather have it be something non-food and non-alcohol since those truly are stumbling blocks for me. I very much want to move back into the non-drinker status. I think I will make my reward something like a new item --- or maybe a facial? A once a month reward if I have followed my plan.
Boy - it was hard getting my journal this morning - they must be doing some maintenance on the site. It was getting frustrating and I was about to give up - but I'm so addicted to coming here every day I just really needed to get my thoughts out. I noticed that I just passed my one year anniversary of starting this journal. Its been a year of big learning!
Now I'll try to catch on the other journals and then get going with my day.
