Back to Square Three…


Woo hoo…I’m finally back at the gym…don’t get excited…I’ve only been two days in a row…I’m not doing anything fancy…walking on the treadmill…not too fast…not too long…just trying to get back in shape…
It’s kind of frustrating…it feels like I completely wasted three years of my life…spent getting into shape…changing my eating habits…only to find myself…back at square one…out of shape…and overweight…
But…then I have to ask myself…REALLY…am I totally out of shape…and the answer is…NO…not totally…I’m by no means where I was a year and a half ago…but I’m also not where I was before I started working out a few years ago…either…
It’s the same with my weight…I have regained…way more than I’d like…hello…one pound is more than I’d likeand it’s a lot more than one…but…it’s not all of it…
So…I’m actually starting ahead of the game…when I started…must have been four years ago…I broke the Diet Coke habit…and never went back…I drink mostly water…I started eating more fruits and veggies…I still do…I cook most of my meals…I carry my lunch…I rarely eat fast food…it’s really just my sweet tooth that I need to tweak…
Unlike when I originally started…I’m really looking forward to the exercise…to challenging my body…to getting stronger…and…especially…to getting back on my bike this spring…
So…maybe I’m not back to square one…maybe I’m at square three…or even four…I know I’ve got a ways to go…but…I also know I can do it…I’ve done it before…
