well I feel like I am finally back on track after being sick for a week. Its been a little hard to get back into the swing of things but its going better now. I have tracked my food for two days in a row and I feel like Im doing well there. I exercised yesterday and went for a long walk today.... exercise has been hard to get back into... it always is when I stop for more than one day. The only reason I exercise every day is because its become a habit... its just something I feel like I need to do, like eating breakfast lunch and dinner and taking a shower... its part of my day. When I go for a few days without it I start to dread it again and then Im in trouble.
I am starting small with walks but I think Im gonna try and get a good sweat in tomorow. I really hope the biggest loser is on tomorow, it was not on last week because of the olympics. blah.
I went out with my sister today to the mall. We walked to the bus stop which is about a half mile and then walked around the mall and then walked back home from the bus stop... I got a good amount of walking in. We went to chilis for lunch and split the fajita trio meal, it was really good and after taking the sour cream and guacamole and cheese away from it, it was only around 500 calories.
I tryed on some jeans today because my 18s I bought last month are getting a little loose. 16s fit perfectly! I dident buy any, Im gonna wait a few weeks... but I am happy and feeling really good.
I took a new profile pic an posted it yesterday. I think the change from 201 - 197 is really impressive. I left both pics up so everyone eles could see the difference. My belly is so much smaller.
my best friend saw a picture of me today online... she hasent seen me in person in around 5 years. She was so shocked. she said that she wouldent have recognized me if she saw me in a store or something. That felt pretty good to hear.
I dont think I mentioned in blog form that Im a spark people motivator now. wow. lol I opened my email a few days ago and saw that I had 71 emails... that was really odd for me because I check my email daily and have maybe 10 at the most. They were mostly all friend requests from spark people and I was like what the hell? so I went to spark people and saw that I had the motivator thingy on my page and I was so surprised. its lame but I actually cried because I was really proud of myself. Its been a goal of mine to one day become a motivator on spark people but I dident think I would untill I hit my goal weight. Its so cool to motivate other people and help to inspire them to keep going on there healthy journey.... fiting into a smaller pants size is so great but when you can play some small part in helping someone eles reach there goals and really be happy its super rewarding. Im happy I can be a part of something like that.
One more thing I have to add about this week is I have discovered that when I lay down and put my legs together my knee bones stick out on the inner part of my legs and hurt. I cant rest my legs on top of each other I have to kinda move one leg to the front and one to the back. I asked my "skinny" sister if that happened to her (because I thought maybe I was just deformed) and she said yes. Im discovering so many new things. This thing kinda sucks because I usually lay with my legs together when Im laying down and now I cant... but in a way its cool because Im I know thats one more thing to show I am making progress.
Anywhoo, Im hoping to have a really good weigh in this week and keep seeing all the great changes in me.
