So, I've been working on improving my lifestyle for about a week now, which is a relatively short time span, but it matters all the same and I know that. Well, today(or yesterday if we get into technicalities since it IS 4AM...) I sat at home and did absolutely NOTHING.

That's right. Not a darn thing.

I sat here in the living room on my laptop, surfing the web and watching bad TV. I still ate in my guidelines(which doesn't take much, since for now I'm just working on eating less of the bad stuff), but I was really quite a lump. And you know what?

I hated it.

I absolutely felt pathetic for not going to the gym, or moving really... At all.

So come 2AM when everyone in my house was asleep, I busted out the WiiFit for a 20 minute feel-better-about-myself workout. It was great, and even though it was only 20 minutes instead of the usual 30 I would do on the WiiFit, I feel LOADS better since I did it.

My revelation, chicks, is that I actually felt bad for not exercising! It was wonderful! Magical! Spectacular spectacular! :wizard: I've never, ever, EVER in my entire history of dieting had this happen! Not that I can remember, anyway, and right now that's all that matters! I'm so, so excited. I feel like this is proof that I'm really successfully changing my whole LIFE! :D

Isn't that a good feeling?

I always heard that once you start exercising, you will not want to stop. That hasn't happened to me yet. Yesterday was my rest day. I did not work out or walk, but I didn't miss it. I did do some yardwork and a little jogging in the pool though. Maybe that was enough. (Sometimes a lazy day is nice, especially in winter)

I completely know that feeling. Yep, wanting to exercise--it's a beautiful thing!

I had actually told myself, and even posted here, last Wednesday I was taking a break from exercise. Hmm, that lasted about 3 days. I feel upset with myself and I was so sluggish and tired. Needless to say, I won't be doing that again :D.

Good luck with your goals :hug:

Thanks chickies! I'm so excited that I can share this with you guys. It's a big deal to me!
I think the biggest reason for my restlessness yesterday was that I didn't really get much exercise on the 4th, either. I have no problem taking one day off from exercise, but two in a row is just too much for me too handle!
