How's this for inspired post? It's 2:30am Saturday morning and I just climbed out of the shower.
Reason 74 for shedding the weight, getting healthier, etc is RING TOSS.
Pardon me if this is TMI, but a reason like this is a motivating factor for me. Why is it so hard to bend over and get my underwear on? Seriously. The heavier I am, the less agile and flexible I am and the harder it is to get those darn things on without sitting down. Even then it is not that easy, but standing up, it resembles a three ring circus.
I am so tired of trying different tactics, rolling them up, tossing them on the floor to step through. It is embarrassing, even though I AM THE ONLY ONE THERE. How weird is that? I am embarrassed in front of myself. Go ahead. Wrap your head around that one. And while you are it, drop by for some ring toss. : )

I was loving my lunch time salad choice so much, I decided it was a good match for dinner. I frequently leave work after many folks have enjoyed their supper. So last night, I stopped into the same cafe (on my floor) and ate the same: spinach and tomatoes with a couple of cuke bits for dinner. Again balsamic vinagrette. Cash-wise, it is a little more out of pocket, but it is lifetimes better for my health.
Here is the best part: I did not snack when I got home. I drank another liter of water but that was it! SWEET! I am so proud of myself. I went to bed feeling very proud (nearly smug) that I was able to ride that train of goodness.
My small steps are starting to give me a little locomotion and I am loving it!

Take a look at this:
It is organic spinach with tomatoes with balsamic vinagrette. Perfectly delicious!
I did everything the same for lunch today, but I did this one thing differently: I ate this for lunch! I feel great! I am not weighed down by heavy carbs. I ate nutritious and delicious food. I was so happy with this choice.
One little success can beget more. YAHOO!

I couldn't get off the couch. Sure, I can blame it on sagging couch cushions, a lack of strength in my legs, socks sliding on the worn carpet, or I could face facts.
I am fat.
I want think I want the taste of something sweet in my mouth, but the cold hard truth is that if I eat the chocolate, getting off the couch is only going to be that much harder next time.
Grrrr. I did not eat the chocolate, tonight.
I am back at square one or so it seems. BUt this is a good starting point and recognizing that I can CHOOSE something different and not have the chocolate is a physical step in the right direction.
So that is what I am doing. Taking baby steps in the right direction. UP and away we go.

Yesterday, a staff member walked out the door in slow motion, or so it seemed.
After she left, I was exclaiming, "nooooooo" as I realized an important document was left behind.
I had a lot on my plate yesterday (and, in fact today as well - ha ha). I didn't think I could spare the time out of the office as every waking minute was accounted for and paired with a task. But, it had to be done, and I did not have anyone else available who could do it, so off I went. It seemed as if I was transported there in no time. It was a cool, brisk walk.
On the way back though, I realized, drats that is a steep uphill. It was even more annoying that I dropped my fitbit 2 days ago and it is among the missing. It's not in the house; it is somewhere in the world. I do not foresee myself replacing that little number. I huffed and I puffed but I made it back to my desk. It was not without considerable effort though.
Here's something great that came out of this interlude. I CAN DO IT! I DID IT. I AM DOING IT. I see myself from the outside in. I have turned the corner. I am right on the brink of success when I was on my biggest losing streak ever. IT IS BEAUTIFUL! I AM BEAUTIFUL! (WE ARE ALL BEAUTIFUL!)
Take a moment to humor me, sparkies: Tell me something beautiful about yourself. If you are stuck ask me, I will tell you!
HAVE A WONDERFUL DAY!
