Baby Steps

Wednesday, November 08, 2006

I finally joined a gym. Today (tonight) was my 7th visit. After 8 visits they give you a free doctor visit on site. They have a family practice physician, a PT and sports meds doc and a couple of others I can't remember right now.

Tonight I did my weight training after 15 minutes of cardio and scrappy mag reading. Reading a scrap mag really makes the time go faster! AND... I'm finally getting to read my backlog of my 7 or so subscriptions...

So far I've gained a pound... but I know I've lost an inch on my waist. Not sure what inches I've lost elsewhere. I think I'll get measured next week.

The hardest part of the whole thing is DRIVING to the gym... once I get there it's not bad. So now I'm going 5 days a week (taking off the weekend) and I'm feeling good and feeling progress... one baby step at a time.


Death by Chocolate

Boy was that a great birthday cake... and they gave us the leftovers since mom and dad are both diabetic. Lucky huh?

Well... there's one piece left and dad called a few minutes ago - mom has a craving and he's coming to pick it up. Oh well. She did bake it after all.

We leave in two days for a twelve day vacation. I'm hoping to "be good" but there will be a lot of eating out and laying around. That's what a vacation is all about right?


A healthy breakfast

So if cocoa is a bean and peanut is a legume...where do you catagorize the "colored candy coating"???

Today wasn't the best day for starting off with a healthy breakfast - but at least I passed on the m&m's this time!

I need to up the water... or at least the tracking of the water. I ususally get my 8+ glasses, but I forget to track them!

Here's to a weekend of healthy choices (after mom's birthday cake...)
