Getting Back Into the Groove

My kids went back to school on Monday and I went back to a regular workout schedule.  
It’s not as easy as it looks.  
Monday was fine.  I had decided to do a Leslie Sansone Walk at Home DVD.  It was the kids’ first day, all things new, etc. etc., so no problem exercising.  
Then Tuesday I had a heck of a time getting motivated to workout.  I had decided to do a Jillian Michael’s interval workout for “strength” on Tuesday, but I just didn’t want to get dressed and get it done. 
As I sat being lazy after my morning devotions I came across a video on my phone my daughter took of me when I was at my lowest weight.  I remember feeling good about myself; not good only because I was wearing a smaller size, but also because it meant I was exercising regularly and being careful how much I ate and what I ate.  
That motivated me to get up and get the exercise done.  I reminded myself the only way to get there again was to get up and take it one day at a time. 
I also reminded myself putting some weight back on doesn’t mean it’s over.  
I know I don’t want to go back to 232 pounds and, like one poster said recently, the good thing about losing weight and gaining it back is you know you’ve done it once so that means you can do it again.  
Yep.  So, I got dressed and got it done.  Then I took a picture and made the above photo for my Instagram account.  It’s a good reminder.  
Oh, and I also got my 3-mile walking workout done today.  Three days in a row… I’m on a roll!  🙂

    You posted a question on my blog asking if I sold planner printables and I couldn't respond to you because I don't find a contact address for you. I didn't want to leave you wondering, but I do not sell planner materials at this time. My IG is @kmalarson I often tag people I buy from though and you could check that out.
