I went to the gym yesturday and hit the 5K button on the treadmill, I put the incline up to 2.0 and just started walking, then I set it a little faster, then I jogged for a couple minutes, then I walked fast again. All in all I finally did it, I did a 5K and my time was 48 minutes and 49 seconds. I am so proud of myself, I know I did not run it. I did walk it, but that is not the important thing yet. Right now I am just so happy to have done it.
That said, wow, my butt muscles hurt today!!!! But guess what? I want to do it again tomorrow!

I have it, I have the bug, i am determined. I want my life to be more than it is right now. I don't want to be obese and tired, I want energy and love and sex, yes there ya go, I want to have the kind of sex I had 50 lbs ago, the kind that is not started with the idea of "quick is ok, I am exhausted" I want to have the energy I need to once again be a more active participant. There is nothing wrong with this statement. I know that sex between two consenting adults is completely normal and wonderful and face it, you do too. I have noticed a real difference in my ability to perform so to speak and I know it is because I am not comfortable in my skin. I look in the mirror and think, wow that is my belly hanging out for W to see, how can he possibly find THIS sexy.
So I hide. I am tired of hiding, I am tired of being ashamed. I have now admitted to the man I love what I weigh. I am actively making changes to have a better life. I post my weight on the fridge so when I reach in now it is for a pre washed, snack baggie of grapes (1 cup thank you very much) not ice cream (which I never really cared for.) I need motivation and Sparkpeople is where it is. Sparkpeople is my source for a quick look at someone else's success and wow, some of you are really showing me how it is done.
I love you, each and every one of you for the courage, determination and the drive you show on this site, posting your blogs, I am going to be you one day, this is just the beginning. Watch me go!

This is the longest I have stayed with it. I am going to the gym, I am drinking my water, I am tracking my butt off.
Today I was on the treadmill, it is really the little things for me, I ran 2 min, walked 3. I did this for a full 30 minutes and guess what I did not die! That was my goal for this week. How great is that? By next Friday I am going to be running 3 min and walking for 2. That is this weeks mini goal.
I am eating well and trying to mix up my lunches. I am keeping lunches light but adding a snack before class and that is working out pretty good. My schedule is crazy though and it is making life difficult. Today lunch was surprisingly awesome. I had only a min to get my lunch made so I grabbed a can of tuna in water, drained it, chopped up a plum tomatoe and a couple tiny dill pickles a sprinkle of parm cheese in a bowl and put 8 grams of tortilla strip salad toppers in a baggie so they would stay crispy. I could not believe how wonderful it was. AND only 176 calories total, lots of protein and filling too.
Tell me your success for the week would ya? Those are the things that keep me going.

I have already planned all my meals for the day, I have fruit and snap peas for snacks and progresso light soup for lunch. Breakfast will be oatmeal at my desk with brown sugar and pumpkin pie spice, so good! I do not have enough calories for the day yet so i will have to figure out what to add, but I am doing great!
Got Wally to weigh himself last night, he is on the bandwagon with me now. We posted our weights on the fridge so we see them all the time, and we agreed to weigh in next Monday after I get out of class, that is 9:30pm so that means back to late late dinners and stuff, but maybe I will start having my soup for dinner and my dinner the next day for lunch. What do you guys think? I work from Mon- Fri 7am-4pm, then I am in school Mon- Thurs til 9:30pm! this semester is going to be rough.
