Back on Track

I see it's been a while since someone has posted here, but it's great to see that #temt is alive and active on Twitter. The temt team is always in the back of my mind pushing me, reminding me to take care of my body so I have energy and good health for myself and my family. Although I was pretty good through the summer, I finally feel back on track this fall.

I have REstarted my own exercise program with two new frames of mind:

1) Exercise every day! I'm no longer assigning workouts to certain days. I'm just exercising every day. For me, early in the morning works best - the time before my family wakes up. This is time for me and I just DO it! That way, I don't wake up and say, "Today I don't have to get up and move." Instead, it's, "Get up - it's time!" If I'm really exhausted one morning, it's no big deal if I don't get up and sleep in a little instead. But the next day - no excuses. It's working for me.

2) It's not too late, it's too early! Both my hubby and I have started getting back on track late summer and, well, we didn't really get a chance to show off a stealth bod at the lake or in the pool. "So, what?" he said, "We're just getting a good head start on next summer." I've adopted this attitude with him and together we have made a pact to keep working out and eating right through the winter, into spring and summer. In other words - our cup is half full.

I'm looking forward to fitting better in my jeans as the weather gets colder and having more energy as the days grow shorter. I can feel the difference already in my attitude and energy.

Getting fit, let's face it, is a good thing no matter the season!

  1. Thanks so much for writing this post, Elizabeth! The #temt team is alive and well; I have been really struggling to fit working out into my school days as I have a long commute. Today, though, I came home after 90 min in traffic and did Zumba!
    Keep up the inspiring work and let us know how it works out through the winter. :-)
    Thanks again!

  2. temt sounds like a great community to be a part of. I recently got some bio-metrics back that surprised me, so I'm trying to exercise daily. Again. I put my motivation in writing in hopes that it can encourage someone: http://loseourwobble.blogspot.com/2011/10/naked-and-mirror.html
