Mojo - Part 2
Let's keep this Mojo idea going! I'm glad to see that most of us are still committed to making some positive changes in our lives, whether that means losing weight, getting more exercise, establishing better habits, developing new interests, contributing more to society---whatever it takes to get the sense that we are in control of our lives and moving forward in a healthy, fulfilling direction.
After dropping a few pounds last week, I seem to have leveled off somewhat, even gaining back a pound and then fighting to lose it again. But I haven't had any binges, and I've been walking almost every day, so I won't beat myself up over it; if I continue on this path, I know the weight will come off, sooner or later. The only dietary "culprit" I can come up with is portion size: there are times when I've probably had too much at dinner (e.g., when one burger is not enough but two is too much). I hereby resolve to stop BEFORE I get too full. I'm going to save the leftover half-burger, or whatever, for the next day's lunch.
I'm also still trying to get a handle on the way I structure my time. I tend to take it easy for a couple hours and then get absorbed in research or a project. Suddenly, it's late afternoon, and I need to get outside for a walk; then I want to relax again before starting dinner. I think I would get more accomplished if I took the walk earlier in the day and then devoted the afternoon to my projects.
I've been investigating gyms and fitness centers. I'm bowled over by the cost! The best one (with medical guidance, excellent facilities, and activities appropriate for someone with a back problem) costs WAAAAY more than I can afford, especially since I'm not working now. I wish I had room for a recumbent bike at home, but there's no space for one. Do any gyms offer "limited" deals for using just one or two pieces of equipment? I'll make some calls next week.
Hope everybody is having a happy, successful weekend! Stay on track!
