A blog about my journey through the weight loss jungle, and the all the stuff that goes with it on the way to a healthier me.

Ruts and Roadways


So, I think I’m in the rut.  You know the bumpy sloping dirt part next to the actual road.  I don’t think I’m “stuck” in the rut but I’m there. I know exactly what I need to do to move out of the rut. I need to move. I haven’t been able to find my motivation to actually move more than I have to. For now I’m moving slowly inside the rut, looking at the road that I want to be on. Excuses have been plentiful – I hate the cold, and its been cold so I don’t want to be outside. Work is really, really busy so I’ve been putting in extra hours. I can’t leave my kids alone at this age and there is a sitter shortage.  All good excuses, no?  No.

Exercise, good food choices, one day at a time, extra movement will all get me back on the road I want to travel. I had to take the Body Media Band off for a while. I wore it so often I ended up with a contact reaction on my skin, partly due to how dry it was over this winter.  I’ll be putting it back on this week. If you are wondering what the heck I’m talking about – see this post.

They say knowledge is power – I think action is power. You can have all the knowledge in the world but if you don’t do anything with it, there is no power to it.  My goal this week is to move for 15 min. more every day. I have a thousand things to pick from, I just need to pick one and then do it.  I’ll let you know which one.

So, let me know what kinds of ruts you’ve been stuck in and how you’ve gotten back on the road. Sheer willpower? A nudge from a friend, a shove from a best friend? 🙂  I look forward to your comments.

  1. We have all been there, so I wouldn’t worry too much about it. As long as start moving, you should be good to go:) Great post Maureen and I look forward to sharing more with you:)

  2. Great goal Maureen. It’s also one I need to do. Guess I will put on my dancing shoes and some snappy music. I might not be going any great distance, but at least I am movin’ and groovin’ which is better than sitting.

    Have a great day.
