Keeping up my new years resolutions, so far so good

Today was day two of the new years resolution plan. Yesterday I managed to get a Wii Fit session in in the afternoon after going to the gym in the morning.

Today the Wii Fit started me off this morning, and I'm heading to the gym later this afternoon. I have my trusty Sigg next to me, with it's second filling of water. I have had only one cup of coffee today, and I've been pretty good about keeping my food choices relatively healthy, with one mocha had yesterday while out for my drawing group.

I managed to do a pull up yesterday (getting my chin over the bar) but I confess I wasn't starting from a dead hang, I hopped my way up a bit. Today I'm going to use the assisted pull up machine at the gym to work on them some more.

It's hard right now not to keep checking for progress. I know, intellectually that it's going to take some time before I can see the results of the changes in my fitness plan, but emotionally it's frustrating not to see numbers pealing off the scale like magic.

How do you keep from getting frustrated by a lack of results?

It drives me crazy too! I was just in the pool today wondering when I'd start to notice a difference. If I make myself ache the next day then THAT feels like progress which is good. And also eating much more healthily is re-energising me which is very motivating too. And sometimes I just plain like being back in the swing of the healthy routine!

The results will come....
