Waiting: To exercise or not exercise. Not a question.

Between 2013 and 2014, I put on a few pounds—more like 20 lbs.  I wasn’t exercising and not really watching what I was eating.  Although I had an almost one year old and a 3 year old at that time, I could not look at myself and continue to make excuses why I was overweight and not exercising or eating healthy.  I knew I needed to start exercising for so many reasons including to reduce the strain I was putting on my body  ( my heart trying to compensate with the extra weight, pancreas probably shooting out extra insulin with all of the carbs and extra calories, fatigue, moody at times, etc. I also knew that, for me, it’s not good practice to encourage others to do something that you cannot do yourself. 

Going to the clubhouse to work out was just not working—the inconsistency was frustrating me big time, especially with trying to go when the clubhouse was open.   So, in September of 2015, I bought a treadmill, and I have not looked back.  I have lost the 30 lbs and then some.  I am making better choices with foods, as well. I put my treadmill in a place that I can’t help but look at it everyday.  Plus, I have equipment to use in the winter months.

I have seen others make positive changes in their life because they decided that waiting was not getting them anywhere.  What are you waiting on?  What positive changes can you make for yourself?
