One step at a time

I am struggling a bit...well, actually a lot. I am finding it very hard to get through my cardio workouts and get any strength training & ab work done. I am still determined to get fit and be healthy, but am letting my slow weight loss (& external factors) wear on me. I need to get through this quickly or I am afraid I will fail.

I am trying to work through this by continuing to put one foot in front of the other. My goal is to do cardio for a minimum of twenty minutes, five to six days a week. I would like to do more, but at this point just continuing with the exercise is what is important. I know if I can get through this phase I will be successful because by continuing I am making steps towards my goal.

While on the elliptical this morning, I totaled my miles for the twelve days of March. I have gone over seven miles on the ten days I have exercised. Although, I feel like I am struggling I guess I am making progress towards being fit and healthy. Maybe I just need to be more patient with myself and trust that the weight will come off if I just keep working out and eating right.

  1. I am sorry you are struggling with it.. I am sure that if I had 5 children I would hardly brush my hair in the mornings, let alone find time for exercise.. I still think you are SuperMom!
