Had a fantastic day! Picked up in the yard, washed the dog, got lots of steps, shopped a bit. Ate decent. Tracked it all. Can't get much better than that. Unless a lottery win was thrown in there somewhere - that would have made it much better lol.
I also tried starting my very neglected scooter up today since it was so warm, but it was a no go. When I moved to this house in October, I parked it in the garage and completely forgot about it. The exact opposite of last year. I didn't put the battery on the trickle charger, I didn't put Stabil in the gas tank, I just let it sit there. Ugh. So, I unhooked the battery and put it on the charger today at least, and I may have to empty the gas tank and fill it up with fresh stuff when the nice weather rolls in. We shall see.......

Just a quick blog tonight. I'm really not big on blogs, but I suppose I do have a thought or two to jot down. I am in Week 3 of C25K. This is the farthest I've ever made it! It feels incredible. After I finish the spurts of running, I feel so accomplished. As I progress, sometimes before I start the session I don't think I'll make it - BUT then I do!!!! And it feels so satisfying.
Now, I just need to get my eating under control - consistently. I do okay, but then I just suddenly blow it. I can do better, I know it :)

Haven't written a blog post in awhile mostly because I am afraid of failure. I look back at the old posts where I am excited about losing weight, and steadily on track only to read it months later when I no longer have the motivation, and I have failed yet again.
I will not do that this time. I will succeed. Enough is enough.
I feel on track again, and it feels good, but I know I am working slower than usual. I just feel so overwhelmed and busy sometimes that I'm not getting as much exercise in, or I'm snacking just a bit more than I'd like to. But, at least I am on track. :)
This can, and will be done. Yes.. yes it will.

So much for video blogging! I have been so incredibly busy, I can't seem to find a designated time to sit down with my computer and record a video!
I've been going crazy hammering out school work (I'm back to school to finish up my degree), working full time, Sparking (which is practically full time!) and making time to be active with Max (my dog), phew, life is time consuming.
Since my last blog hmm, I did manage to secure that treadmill I was looking at. It's pretty awesome! I didn't get the same one, well.. practically, but just one with a few less unnecessary features. It goes up to 12mph, and 12 incline - which is FINE by me, seeing as my chubby butt can't go above 5.5 mph lol (and thats the occasional jogging spurt I try and squeeze in). I think I'll get by!
I have been using it consistently, but not nearly for as long as I want to. I've only been able to squeeze in somewhere between 15 and 30 minutes every other day. I get on it, and then I feel guilty because I know I should be doing school work, or cooking dinner, or cleaning up. I think after I find my 'happy place' with school work and can manage better, I'll find more time to exercise. These first two weeks of school have just been hard - so much to do with online classes!!
I've been taking Max out for walks on the trail, he's so active. He here is on the trail where I managed to get him to sit still before going crazy on a sniffing spree.
He and Kalika (my cat) are also doing quite well together! I didn't think it would go so well, I've had Kalika for 6 years and she's spoiled rotten, an only child, indoor only cat.. but she's taken to him quite well.
Also, Max has found his "spot" in the house - he watches for people going by outside.
Too funny, he's so curious :)
Let's see.. what else... I'm moving! I swore I wouldn't again, but I found a house right down the road that is just 10 times better than what I am renting now. It's 4 bedrooms, 1.5 bath, and the yard is enormous. When I first saw the yard all I thought was "VEGGIES VEGGIES VEGGIES!!". I can plant a MUCH bigger garden, and still have room for Max and the pool, and some. I'll be doing that [moving] for Nov. 1st, so add that into my hectic schedule :)
I can do this though :)
