This is more for me than it is for anyone else! I figured maybe I should start blogging and keeping track of my thoughts, disappointments, and ideas. Maybe it will help keep me motivated and maybe i'll actually lose weight better. So, If i keep track of myself in a blog, then maybe I will for sure keep myself accountable for my actions! I am happy I came to Spark People, as a way to track everything. Especially since I cannot afford to go back to Weight Watchers.
I am still mentally a WeightWatcher! I still think in terms of Points for food when I'm picking up things to eat. I miss my leader, as he is the most Awesome-est guy EVER! And I still check off in my head my daily requirements (5 fruits/veggies, 8 waters, 2 health fats, etc!)
I do know I need to eat more veggies, even fruit. I do get about 3 in at least, but I need to hit that minimum of 5! I wanted to try going Gluten free, but situation may not allow for that right now. I think my dad should try Gluten-free too, to help with his tummy. SO Goal: More Veggies, less crap! haha. I'm at least trying to not eat processes foods as much. I"m cooking a lot for my parents, and at least I pick good foods.
I am starting to run again! That's good for me, but i'm slow! And Sparkpeople is mean to me, saying my pace is "walking". hahaha. Funny, i feel like i'm running! haha. I know I don't run fast, but come on! haha. I need to get my wiifit connected too! I miss playing with that! It was a bit of a workout. Maybe not as hard as doing a Jillian Michael's work out but still fun! I miss Yoga! I was going to Bikkram Yoga for a couple months this fall, but I haven't had the money to go back. PLUS my yoga mat was destroyed! But I do have as pare, just no money to go! One of the instructors actually reminds me of my Weight Watcher leader I had for years! So, If i had Matt and John, Then I would stay motivated! I was happy with Yoga because i really was gradually improving my poses with every visit! Right now, i can't even do the forward fold pose, as my muscles are so tight. I wonder if they are tight because I'm running and the lack of yoga! I do have a couple of Yoga DVDs, but I just benefited far more from the classes, especially the Bikkram. (I hate heat too! but I managed to live through the torture and LOVE the way i felt afterwards! It's worth the torture! hahaha)
Anyways. As you can see: I miss Bikkram Yoga, i love to run, and I need to eat more veggies! I do tend to ramble, but figure maybe this blog will be a good place to ramble and get mythoughts out and keep myself on track!
Thanks to anyone who actually reads this! Thanks to myself for actually doing something about my thoughts and force myself to be accountable!
P.S. - I Have an interview tomorrow. I Hope it goes well! I need good energy and a way to make me feel AWESOME! hahaha. That way I can nail the interview.
