Working on Changing My Mind

Wow getting back on track is so much harder than I ever imagined it would be.  I need to get the negativity out of my mind... but it's so hard.  Over the last week I've been more than miserable and may have actually hit rock bottom.  I don't want to jinx it, but I feel like my mind may be changing.

I have been keeping up with getting my 8 times in at the gym this whole time, but was doing nothing more than that.  Wasn't tracking - well maybe a day or so I'd track and then I'd quit.

This week I went to the gym twice and I worked out at home.  I bought a new video to work out to.  It's a beginner video from Jillian Michaels.  It's same 30 day shred concept, but it's low impact.  You do three different work outs, each work out is done for 10 days and then you move to the next level (work out).  I can do this!  I've done her videos before.

Why am I doing this video?  Because I saw a picture of a woman who did this recently and there was a significant change in her body.  So I said, what the hell... these videos are under 30 minutes (the first 10 days is 22 minutes I think, then they increase each week but nothing is over 30).

The is definitely low impact and that makes me sad because that was even a bit challenging for me right now.  But hell, I haven't done anything strenuous in about a year.  So baby steps it is and I can't be sad, I need to be happy I'm doing something for myself.

I also have to continue to go to the gym.  I need to get my $20 a month back so I have to go 8 times.  I figure doing this video may get me back into cardio classes at the gym.  I used to love them, I need to love them again.

I'm also recommitting to tracking.  I need to see what I'm capable of.  When I'm focused on losing weight, I do not have a hard time doing it.  But keeping that focus is hard to do.  So here's to a challenging yet rewarding week!

I can do this.

I can't wait until I'm Healthfully Ever After!


  1. Tabi, Thank you for blogging again. Even though you feel you have hit "rock bottom" as you put it, just know you are an inspiration that you get back on the horse! Most would give up...YOU have inspired me like when you did the Couch to 5K, I then got the app and started run/walking to the app. When you started going to the gym, I joined Xperience fitness...and so forth. and because of that, I am now doing the Farrell's XFB 10 week program. This week we are finishing up week 5 and pushing hard to reach the goals...and I have you to thank, for the inspiration..SO when you feel like you hit rock bottom....I am with you to inspire you, as you inspired me.. Love you with my whole heart!! Salo

  2. YAY TABI! I'm so glad we had a chance to chat "at work" the other day. I miss your face! But, I've missed your really raw and brutally honest posts too, my friend. I know we keep telling you that YOU motivate us...but I hope that we can help motivate you in return. Today is a new day - just do the best you can today - that's all that matters. <3 Denise
