i've been looking for a big motivator to get me going. well, i found one! i have been approved for a house. so i sign the papers in a month. that gives me about 30 days to get in shape. i really don't want to move into my pretty new house looking frumpy and overweight. plus my back has been killing me and i know it's from lack of exercise. i don't want it to bother me when i'm moving stuff. plus, how awful to be carrying all this extra weight around when i'm trying to lug heaving boxes!
so wish me luck! i better get busy!

Never realized i was an emotional eater til yesterday. when i'm stressed, i eat! i know i eat when i'm bored, it's something i'm mindful of and can usually spot before it gets out of control. but i never realized stress caused me to eat. when i'm depressed or feeling down i don't eat, so i figured i was in the clear. i'm glad i figured this out cause life is about to get more stressful and i need to find ways to divert the urge to eat. walks are my biggest diversion. anyone have any other ideas to curb this eating habit?

I've lost a pound since i started this. not a great result, but better than gaining! i know the number would be higher if i was eating properly and working out more. i'll get there! i have been walking more. yea! as for food, well i just can't afford to eat real healthy right now. so i'm going to concentrate on eating as healthy as i can. concentrate on more fruit and veggies. i'm buying a house in a couple months, so money is for that more than anything else.
with that in mind, i've decided to concentrate on working out. it's free. and i have an hour a day i can spend on it. though using that hour may take some great willpower!
also! this morning on put on a pair of freshly laundered jeans after my shower and they were loose! yea! usually it takes about a half hour to get them away from that horrible dryer shrinking feeling.

i realize i am very impatient where this whole losing weight and working out thing is concerned. i used to eat fairly well and work out on a regular basis. then i stopped. it didn't happen overnight. but for some reason i expect all the weight i've gained to fall off overnight. and i expect to be able to run a mile without stopping like i used to.
i went for a run this evening. i knew i wasn't going to make it far, but i had goal. i didn't make it. i pushed myself and got to the point where i thought i wasn't getting enough oxygen, so i walked. i know i have to do a little each day and gradually add more, but i want to be able to do it now! i used to be able to.
it saddens me that i let myself become this way. i don't even know who i am. i don't want to be this person anymore. i just get so frustrated because i want to change it now, and quickly. but i can't.
