Excuses... Excuses...

This week has been a tough one as far as my new "lifestyle" change is going. I'm trying the whole Weight Watchers thing (which, btw - this is my fourth time signing up with them.) Each time it works - it's just that I get sidetracked, impatient and some how, some way, finances get in the way. WW can add up quick, but this time seems to be different. I'm only doing the online version and I don't have to make plans to attend a meeting. You see, I would not weigh in at home - you had to do it at a meeting. So if I skipped one meeting, then ended up skipping another - eventually, I would just quit.

Not this time. 9 pounds down...

However, I am sooo lacking in one specific area - EXERCISE. The ONE thing I actually enjoy. I am not sure WHY I am slacking here, but I am.

Again, I turned to my friends at Everyday Health and found this great video:

WOW. Bingo.

I need to get to the bottom of why I am standing in my own way! Why do I get so lazy when it comes to success? It's right in front of me...


What about you? What is your trick for scheduling time for exercise? Or what keeps you from moving?

Would love to hear!

I am a weirdo that has to do it first thing in the morning so that my only excuse is my own laziness. But I still need motivation!

That was a great video. I just canceled Weight watchers yesterday. I have not been able to go to meetings the last couple of months. When I started it I did very well, but when stress came in I could not keep counting points. This video was good because, yes, we all can find a half an hour at least three days a week to work out. I hope you are well and good for you for losing 9 pounds!

Nicole congrats for losing the 9lbs!!! Yay that's awesome.
I just find a class where I can 'feel the good'. Then if I fall off the wagon I remember the feeling of being healthy and in good shape and I get right back on.
If you don't succeed in your goals you simply didn't want them bad enough.
