Afraid Of Moving

Happy Memorial Day.  Today is the day to stop and give thanks for those who have lost their lives for our freedom.  To remember why it is so important to support our troops in thought and in prayer, and to be grateful for those of us who still have our loved ones close to us.

My Memorial Day weekend is almost ended.  I hope everyone enjoyed it as much as I did.

I am back on a strict plan tomorrow.  Tracking, staying within my calories, and....I feel a challenge coming my way!! :)  I've decided to do a walking challenge.  I hate walking.  Well, I don't hate it, but I dislike it very much.  I am lazy.  No, I'm REALLY lazy.  I hate to move.  I like sitting after work.  I like lounging around watching TV.  I see people walking and running and wish I could be that way, but honestly I would rather sit and lift weights rather than walk.  I just don't have energy to do it.  But, I realize that this is not good for my health or my weight.  It's not doing me any good to be this way.   Everything you read and hear now a day is about how good walking is for you.  I think I'm the only one out there that isn't walking.  I used to walk....some.  I kinda liked it once I started, but once I stopped I couldn't push myself to try again.  So, because of all that, I am challenging myself to walk 8,000 steps every day for a week.  Now, I know what you're thinking.....they say 10,000 steps is what you should aim for.  Well let me tell you,  when I wear my fitbit, a little over 5,000 is the maximum I've ever done, and that is on a shopping day.  So, I've decided that I am not going to jump into anything I know I wont be able to accomplish.  8,000 is a big enough number for me to try to hit....trust me :)  UGGG....I am really going to hate this, but I think it is just what I need to push me to move more.   Get ready for some boring pictures of my pretty pink fitbit each day.  You know how much that helps me stay accountable even though it's tough on you all :)

So, I am ready.  I am determined.  I am confident.  I am scared......
