It's time to turn up the heat on my healthy journey. I decided to stop making excuses about the heat and do something about my exercise plan. I'm still not too comfortable about getting back in the gym. I want to give it a few more weeks. I'm not sure if the reason is mental or physical. I still feel a little pain here and there. The doctor said I have a lot of scar tissue in my abdomen so I have to be careful. Whatever the reason, I have made a conscious decision to honor myself about working out in the gym for now.
Since I have a few exercise DVDs, there's no reason why I can't exercise. So, I pulled out my Biggest Loser - Last Chance Workout DVD. My goal is to do a workout every day this month. I've been very inspired by Kat. She has like 200+ consecutive days of exercise. I'm going to take it one day at a time and see what happens. Today is day two and I feel fine.
Now, I need to get my eating habits back in line. I realize it's emotional eating. Things aren't going so well in the relationship department. I have all the tools to manage my emotions. I just haven't been doing the work. Well, the pity party is over. I'm praying. I'm meditating. I'm journaling.
I also purchased Women, Food, and God by Geenen Roth on Amazon this week. I saw this book mentioned on Bella's blog. I'm looking forward to reading it.
