I have know for years how lazy I am, and yet I never seem to change. I was doing so well with going to the gym four times a week, for one month. Now I haven't gone in two weeks, and I know that when I do go back in (tonight, after work) It's going to KILL me. Oh well, my fault for not staying with it and just taking time out. I do miss the burn thou :) And this time, I'm starting again and not putting it off, just because I haven't gone (this is what my main problem has been for years). That's progress. Next step, just keep going. Just like the fish from finding Nemo, just keep swimming!

I feel just awful.
I had been doing so well. Jurnaling all of my food, water, anything that went into my mouth. And getting to the gym. My goodness. I was exercising! I kept my journal with me, and was faithful, for about three weeks.
I'm not sure what happened. One day, I left my journal at home. It was in the back of my mind, "make sure that you wright this down". But I didn't. The next day I thought that I would right everything down from the day before and this day as well. Yet again, I did not. "It's okay," I thought," I eat almost the same thing every day, I know that I'm not hurting myself by not writing it all down." Besides, I wasn't planning on doing that for the rest of my life.
I went out for sushi, and purposely did not look at my journal. The following day, I felt like it was time to go back and write everything, except that I couldn't remember everything. I hadn't realized how many days had passed.
During this time, I had also only gone to the gym once. Everything combined got me depressed.
As I am new to the area (Just moved 1400 miles) I don't really know anyone, so that makes it just that much harder. I ended up calling my aunt on the opposite coast. She suggested that we have a glass of wine together over the phone. Well, one glass turned into three (I don't usually drink) and I ended up a little drunk. Then I ATE all the foods that I shouldn't have (and I didn't even truly enjoy it that much). That was yesterday.
As I said, now I feel awful.
On the other hand, I see my mistakes, and know that I need to start over. I now know that I do need my journal (even if it is for life). It seems to me, that that is where I hold myself accountable for my actions.
Live and learn as the saying goes, today is a new day.
So the lesson's that I have learned this week?
1) That I must (for myself) wright everything down.
2) Don't drink when I get depressed, it leads to much worse feelings down the road.

I'm just about finished reading "Fat Land" by Greg Critsen. Such a great book. It opened my eyes to things that I already basically knew, but just didn't want to admit or see. It made me think about our country, and how we so willingly became lazy. We don't want to be told that we need an hour a day to exercise, and so the government accommodates us and says, ok, clean your house three times a week, and that will work (ok, I am exaggerating just a bit here). And it's mostly the poor who have suffered.
They don't have the money, education, the doctors who care, ext,ext. Just look at fast food. It's aimed right at them. Value meals, you can supersize for hardly anything, $1 drinks of any size. Cheap, easy, and the kids love it. My own mother raised four children (plus all our friends) alone. Fast food was much easier then making dinner every night. Plus she worked two jobs, this saved her time as well.
If your looking for a good read, I highly recommend this book.
Fast food Nation is next.

I have been in a very upbeat mood for the past couple of days. I seem to have more energy, and my mind seems to be working for a change. It's so nice to remember things again.
I've been eating healthy for about 2 weeks now, and I have gone to the gym four times. The only bad part is that I now have blisters on the back of my heels. OUCH!! Trying to let them heal before tearing them up again.
Besides that, totally happy with life for now. (Much happier when I lose the weight! LOL)
