It's come to my attention

So the last few days I have had a familiar feeling that fills me with dread and reminded me how much I slacked on my workouts. My thighs are rubbing together again! It’s only ever so slight but it makes me so mad. How could I have let this happen? It’s not like I went off the deep end. I still worked out a few times in the last month and still watched my food intake some of the time. Ugh, I guess it’s just a reminder that this is never going to be easy and I’m going to have to be careful for the rest of my life. This blows.
So I wallowed in self pity for a short while and then realized that all that will do is make me fatter. I had so many excuses for myself and it is time for them to stop. From now on I have to get back into my routine and stick to it. We are all moved so there is no reason not to get to the gym four times a week. I started back yesterday and did the first day of Couch to 5k and rode the bike for 20 minutes. I wanted to cry at how slow I was. Some people can not work out for months and then go run a few miles no problem. Not me. Working out is never something that has come easily to me. It took a long time before I didn't curse the gym whenever I went there.
I have to stop beating myself up for how out of shape I’ve gotten in these few short weeks and start fresh. Instead of focusing on what I can’t do that I used to be able to do, I need to start fresh and then focus on my improvements.


i feel your pain.

i just started back to the gym after being absent for 6 months (i was walking a ton, but still...) i know i can do it and so can you.

i think trying to focus on making improvements is a good thing. much luck!

Thighs aren't supposed to rub together?

This is news to me. :s

My thighs have never NOT rubbed together. :(

I feel ya, I used my being so busy last semester with school as an excuses and didn't work out once.

Now that I'm back in the game- it's taken me a while to get back into it. I'm out of shape plain and simple.


We need these little reminders you know to let us know when we're not being the best to ourselves. So think of it that way instead of being so upset about it.

Keep up the good work. We'll be back at our best in no time. Have some faith in yourself
