That's right, I declare myself independent.
I am independent of the voice in my head that says I can't bike up the hill.
I am free of the feelings that I 'should' be eating now because I 'might' be hungry later.
I am entrenched in healthy thoughts, actions, and people who will enable me to reach my highest potential.
I break all ties with a food industry that seeks to poison me at every turn. If I can't tell what a food's made of by looking at it, I don't want it. No more 'boxed' foods. No more 'tubed' foods. I ally myself with clean proteins, vegetables from the earth, and ingredients made for my body, not my mouth.
I declare the truth of my being worthy of health and happiness to be self-evident. God created me to be healthy and strong. God created me to be a wife one day and to be glad.
Today is my independence day, I hope you all can have one, too.

Welcome to Tuesday and day four of my five day vacation from work. I've done a lot including jogging and biking but the one thing I haven't done that I should be doing today is weigh in.
I go to weekly group meetings as part of a study I'm participating in, but due to the Fourth of July holiday group was cancelled today.
I have to confess, I don't own a scale.
So, I'll just keep doing what was so successful last week and hope to see the same results. Of course, I did have a couple of 1500 calorie days last week; but, my average was still only 1300 or so. I hope I get to see another four pounds melt away next week.

I had planned for today to be my day off from exercise - I didn't realize it was going to be my day off from healthy eating, too.
For breakfast I had... wait, I didn't have breakfast. I ran out the door as soon as I could because I had plans to finish work up on my craft room today with my dad.
So, I get home and I eat a sum total of three baby carrots before getting to work.
For lunch? Well, for lunch I thought I'd made good choices... until I saw that the calorie count was JUST for the burger I ate and not the fries, too. BOOM 1100 calories right there.
Then comes the indulgence of a Dairy Queen sundae...
It was not my day.
Well, tomorrow I'm off from work again and I completely intend to go for a nice, long bike ride to celebrate. Hell, maybe I'll go for a run after.
Here's to getting back on the wagon when you fall off!

Today I did my C25K jog in my new Five Fingers and I feel pretty good. I don't know if I want to train in them forever; but, I certainly didn't get any of the shin and calf pain I usually do.
In other news as my five day weekend continues tomorrow I plan to work on my craft room and then go for a nice long bike ride through town. I'm hoping to do more than the 12 miles I did yesterday; but, we'll see.
I've been thinking a lot about how lucky I am. I'm fat, but I'm healthy. I don't have diabetes or high blood pressure. I don't have any arthritis or reasons why I can't move. All I have to do is overcome laziness and work hard. Well, I'm going to be more stubborn than the weather, my own body, and the people who think I'm insane.
One day I'll be fit.
So, here's to being lucky enough to be able to run, bike, jog, and exercise!

It was a great day today. Went out for a long bike ride this morning and then went out to lunch with my brother. I think it was kind of a blessing that my 550 Calorie Applebees sirloin meal turned out pretty gross. There was just too much garlic.. yack.
For dinner I'm planning on some veggies and lots of water because I spoiled myself with a fantastic hot fudge sundae from Sonic. Oh, it was sooooo good.
Looking forward to going for a run tomorrow and getting some help moving the Total Gym upstairs.
