I went back to aerobics today, for the first time in aaaaages. It felt good to bring my muscles out of the cupboard and dust them off. At the start they were saying "See, I still work!" and by the end, "You'll pay for this tomorrow!" I used to think Weight-loss was a place, and that if I could only get there, then I would be happy. Well, I've walked the long road, and found that there is no place, just a long, long road that never ends....in fact it's not even a road, it's an escalator going down, when you want to go up. You put on weight by simply standing still. To stay in the same spot, you have to keep moving, and if you want to actually want to get anywhere, then you have to go twice as fast. No wonder so many people give up, or get where they want to be, and then slide straight back down again. There's no easy way to move yourself up that escalator, you have to eat well and move a lot! I think the trick is finding ways to make moving up the escalator more fun. Sometimes I have to let myself slide down a step or two, to give myself the energy to keep on moving up again....not sure how many steps I slid down over Christmas!!
I have a Stamp-a-stack tonight, with only a couple of people coming, so I'm going to make cards too, so I can replenish my stash :-)
