So, I have been obsessing over getting an mp3 player. While I was out for my WALK today (yes I got up and MADE myself go) I thought it would be really awesome to have some music. Something to motivate me... like a little Ronnie James Dio or something.
I woke up today around 1030 and was tempted to go back to sleep, but I forced myself to stay awake, and get something accomplished. I threw some laundry in, ate a bowl of raisin bran and headed out the door. Granted, I only walked a mile, but it was 1 more mile than I walked yesterday. So I am pretty happy about that. I am sure if I had a new mp3 player I would walk even more... at least that is what I am trying to convince myself of.
Since I got myself up and moving today I had time to cook an awesome lunch.
1 cup raisin bran
1 cup skim milk
*I know that is what I have been eating everyday, but I really, really like it. I will get something new when it runs out*
1 Philly Steak Lean Pocket
Dinner (Pretty proud of this one)
1 cup brown rice
1/2 cup salsa
1/3 cup shredded cheese
2 tbs light sour cream
Salad - lettuce, tomato, onion, carrots 2tbs light dressing
1 cup sugar free/fat free pudding
I realize that I am eating a lot of the same type of food like fruit and pudding, but it is because that is what I bought for this week. The pudding is like yogurt to me though. I don't eat yogurt.
Looking forward to a few days off. It is going to be nice. I have a carefully planned menu for the next few days and if I stick to it, I think I will be ok
Hoping my boyfriend will get out and walk with me too. It is nice when it is both of us

I seriously need to get up the motivation to take a walk. I can't expect to lose weight if I don't exercise. I woke up today around 1030, and I just couldn't get the motivation to get out of bed. I finally got up at 1 and realized I had to get my butt in gear. I didn't have time to take a walk. I made my lunch for work (I work 4pm-2am) got ready and headed out the door. I guess I could have just grabbed a Healthy Choice out of the freezer and brought that with me, and used the time I took to prepare my lunch to walk. I really didn't think about that until after I had already had everything started. I keep telling myself, that I am going to get up, and I am going to walk, but I haven't seen myself doing it yet. Of course this is only the end of day two. I am trying to do a lot at once, but I can't make excuses for myself, that is pathetic.
Lets look at the food for today
1 c of raisin bran
1c skim milk
*I actually kinda skipped breakfast, since I didn't wake up until 1pm*
*this would have actually been my snack*
- lettuce, tomato, onion, carrots
- 3 oz chicken
- 1/3 c of shredded colby jack cheese
- 2 tbs of low fat raspberry vinaigrette dressing
1 c sugar free/fat free pudding made w/ skim milk
24 jelly belly beans
and I ate a Sante Fe Style Rice and Beans Weight Waters dinner. I was hungry damnit!
I should not have ate the jelly beans :( but I am not going to get down on myself about it.
goal for tomorrow is to go for a walk - 1 mile and I don't think it will be that difficult

I went shopping today and stocked up on supplies to begin my new, healthy way of eating. I didn't know what to buy really. I mean, I love to cook, but I don't have a lot of time to do it so I bought some tuna, and some chicken breasts, sugar free canned fruit (because while I adore fresh fruit more than anything, it is a little expensive, and it seems to go bad before I can eat it) cottage cheese and well... my weakness is hot pockets. I don't know why, they are gross, but I can't help it, I love them - so, I bought lean pockets. I figure that has to help some...
I bought the most awesome cute Vera Bradley notebooks to use as my food journals. Very easy to carry in my purse - this is still a lot I need to stock up on, but I did pretty well before I started to meltdown in the store. I could never understand why they have 30 check out lanes, but only 3 are open? Kids screaming and of course i get behind the lady that brought all of these fliers from other stores to get a "price match" - I digress
On to the diet soda - I have been doing a lot of research on diet soda. A lot of it says it is linked to weight gain. I am a soda drinker and on average I drink 3 cans (at 170 calories each) a day of soda. I would think by taking these out of my diet and replacing them with diet would be a step in the right direction. I don't know, maybe I am crazy...

This is my first blog entry. My friend told me about this site, and I figured that I would give it a shot.
My name is C - I am 30 -
I quit smoking in July of 2009. Which is awesome! I don't smoke any more! I am not going to get lung cancer and die! Yay! Then I gained 30 pounds. So I won't die from lung cancer now, I will just have a heart attack or a stroke and die because I am fat... awesome huh?
I used to want to be skinny because that is what the media told me I had to be. I don't care if I am skinny now, I just want to be healthy. That is my main goal. I don't care if I am a size 2 any more, I just want to be healthy.
My boyfriend is great. When I weighed myself the other day, and started crying, cause this is the fattest I have ever been in my life, he laid his head on me, and told me it was ok. He loved me. I am glad he does, because right now I am having a hard time loving myself. I guess I am just mad at myself. I have never been skinny... ever, but I have never been this heavy either.
So, I have decided that Monday May 24, 2010 is the day I start. I need time to go grocery shopping, get some meal plans together and what-not
Wish me luck - cause I am a gonna need it :)
