Apparently whining on my blog created a sense of responsibility to do something about what I feel are personal failings. For the last couple of days I’ve been eating slightly better. It hasn’t been great. These are the holidays after all.
I’ve done a bit more exercise, including a quickie run on Christmas Eve with my oldest boy. It felt good to get out there and the endorphin push helped nudge me a bit further out of my rut. Not only are my muscles waking up, it feels like I’m nudging my brain awake too.
There’s no routine, and I’m still messing up a lot. But it does feel better to be doing at least something. Small things may not make a physical difference; but my attitude is turning around, and that’s a wonderful change. Today I even did my hair and makeup for work. My coworkers must be wondering if I’m looking for a job or something.
Am I going to lose 50 pounds with just a few small changes? Nope. I do think every little bit helps though. Maybe small things will add up to big things over time. I’m keeping my fingers crossed that I can build up some momentum.
