I have been riding this roller coaster now for some time. I have started and stopped more times than I can count. But as of Saturday night with tears in my eyes as I tried on yet another pair of jeans that didn't fit to go out with friends, I decided that I was tired of being tired and overweight. I have allowed myself to keep gaining, wear stretch pants, and just be uncomfortable within myself, long enough. If there is to be change it much come from me. I can't keep hiding behind the sweats and big t-shirts. It is time to take back my life.
Yesterday I got up and from that moment on I was working on change. I had a good breakfast, all accounted for on Spark, even paid 3.99 to have it on my phone so I can keep up with my foods and such. Headed into town for a few healthy things, stuck to my list and came home and prepped my veggies for salads and such this week. Even cooked cabbage in advance so I can have that. Something new and different. Then I had a healthy lunch, no snacks....it was wonderful. I did have some popcorn later and then dinner, cabbage....I was full and that was that. No snacking at night. I finished the day under my range.
Nope no exercise yesterday, I have worked out so much this past week and burned over 2000 calories that I took a day off. But my activity tracker is ready and waiting for today. I plan on a walk at lunch.
Ok, time to go. I have to get ready for work. My first day back after a week off. Ready? Actually I am. I don't do well just sitting around.
