Can I even find my way back to the gym?

So this morning, just like yesterday morning, my alarm buzzed at 4:30.  With intentions of getting up and going to the gym.  Well I would not be writing a post about finding my way to the gym if I had made it would I?  So again today I skipped.  I am not to upset with myself but I did do a little research.  Lets take a look shall we.  The last date I was at the gym was June 15th.  Almost 4 weeks ago.  Now lets look at what has happened to my weight during that time.

June 17 2008 - 0.8 / 319.6
June 24 2008 - 1.8 / 317.8
July 01 2008 + 2.2 / 320
July 08 2008 + 3.2 / 323.2

I had been hitting the gym for the weigh in on the 17 of June.  Then the one on the 24th nothing, but then the real fun begins on the 1st and 8th of July.  I really need to take my own advice and look at my own history and realize that the gym is the extra degree and really gets everything on track for me.  I know I said it yesterday, but I figure if I keep saying it maybe I can find my way back.  I am down about this but not too upset.  I do not feel lost but instead I know that I am on the wrong path.  My diet is better so maybe that is a sign that I am turning around and getting back to when I can get on the right path.

Thanks to all of you for your support!  Please know that I am lurking around your blogs as well, I just do not feel right trying to inspire others when I myself and in a valley in my own journey.  Let hope I have bottomed out and can start back up the long hill towards health.

Did your eating habits change for the worse also, or did they stay the same?

Matt, I could use a workout partner. I'll be at the gym at 5p tonight. Hope to see you there.

See, now you have a 'virtual' invitation to spur you back to the the gym.

PS... I'll check on you!

Just my two cents, but the longer you are away, the more difficult it may be to get back into an exercise routine. The good news is that once you start going, it should get easier again.

In any event, good luck.

Hey, just hang in buddy. We all go through slumps but keep making efforts every day and eventually you'll get back on track!

It's nice to take a break from the gym...have you been getting any exercise in?

Maybe it's time to change it up. Maybe the early morning gym routine could change to a brisk evening walk or even a heart-pumping exercise dvd? Maybe your body is telling you...."I am bored!" We all get into a rut sometimes.

It's so easy just to skip it, isn't it! I too have been bad about that this week and i'm giving myself a kick back into gear this week. Hope you make it back to the gym soon and at least you know what you need to do!
