No excuse

About an hour ago, I faced the following situation- exercise or not exercise? I knew if I didn't exercise, it would become a free day, meaning I would purposely derail my eating by using the excuse "You can restart tomorrow. Plus you're running a 10k in the morning". I tried to justify a final decision by using that excuse, but I knew I should not give in. So, instead of thinking about the snacks that I was going to have, I threw on my exercise clothes and laced up my shoes. I knew I made the right decision, but once I got to the park, I found myself procrastinating by cleaning my purse and car. I forced myself out of the car and went for a 2 mile bike ride.

I know the 2 mile bike ride isn't much, compared to what I'm used to do. I KNEW I had to do some exercising or else I would have found myself in the kitchen multiple times before bed. I know it's still early in the evening, but I plan on exercising soon more. I WILL avoid the kitchen until tomorrow morning.


  1. Your story ( inspiring me to do the same. I have far less weight to lose, yet it has been very difficult for me to lose it and keep it off. I lost several times but after my last gain to 235ish, I was only able to get down to 200lbs.
    i have begun exercising more awhile ago but was afraid to exercise too much because of my weight and age, 53. Your exercising routines have dispelled that myth. I will begin exercising more. It is raining now but, the second there is a break in the rain out I will go. I am going to use google/maps to figure my mileage. Today is a 2 miles walk. That seems like a good start. Thank you for sharing your experiences.

  2. Thank you Zoku for the comment! Good luck with your weight loss journey. I wish you nothing but the best. I'm sure you already know, but when it comes to exercising and dieting, dedication is key. Keep it up! I’ll be rooting for you!
