I am truly inspired this morning , with a new attitude.
Last night, I began reading "Fat Chance" (there is more to the title but it's something worth and author I can't remember) Julie something. Season 4 Biggest Looser contestant. By chapter 2 I was almost in tears, When she would describe her day's in school. It was eerie similar, but with a different situation. Of course, a few things were different, I wasn't a fat or even chubby girl growing up, I wasn't a twig or skinny but I was healthy and even at a healthy weight. It wasn't until my 20's when the pounds began coming on. Different story for another time. Anyway, back to the fact that was reading this book I was given too from my mom to read, I feel even more inspired to do it. Julie from the book, is about the same height, as me, but for some reason, my weight and what I look like doesn't make me look like I'm obese or fat or chubby or anything. However I am. at 179 now and 5'2" I should be closer to 130 -140 even is better. Which is why I am on spark people. Again, I am getting off topic. In short, read the book, it will inspire you more.

I read either on the site or in the Spark, about a member jump roping her way to success. So, today, I found a jump rope for very cheap It's always a good thing when it's spring and that is one thing kids do at school. I'm going to do what she did to get some cardio in everyday. I'll carry my jump rope and jump when I have a chance. I am also getting my bike back, from my uncle who has been using it. Ricky will be getting a new one, and I get my bike back, so that is one more option I have, plus where Derek and I live we have a nice loop to bike or walk around. Variety is a good thing to do this way, I won't get bored and I can keep up the momentum.

I'm being kicked hard by this whatever it is I have. I felt great for most of yesterday. So, I went out for a walk with Derek. The only problem is 15 minutes in this walk, I had to turn around, because I couldn't see straight, I was dizzy, and I could no longer go further. For the rest of the night, I couldn't do anything. I was weak, tired, and dizzy. If I moved I felt like I would throw up. All I had wanted do was sleep.
Today, I feel tired but I don't feel as dizzy. I will take it easy today in hope that I won't have a repeat of yesterday's set back.

Wow do I feel like a new person. Especially after the last two days. So, It wasn't a Pepsi withdrawal it was a bug. I woke up around 4 this morning drenched in sweat, and feeling a lot better. I no longer felt as hot as I had when I went to bed. at 6 this morning, I was starving so when Derek got up for work, I got up and made breakfast this morning. A Bowel of cereal and a banana but it was breakfast. It's the most I have ate in the last couple of days. I did make myself eat things yesterday, but I couldn't even eat a full serving of last nights dinner. I did make myself do a work out yesterday, it was shorter than usual, and I didn't push myself too hard. I did yoga but I felt so stiff I could barely get into form and feel comfortable.
So, today is Tuesday, and I feel great. I feel motivated especially after I saw I have a few inches off neck, upper arm, waist, hips, thigh, and calf. I feel great that this hard work is paying off.
Also I finished reading The SPARK So at least even though I was sick, I did accomplish something.

I couldn't believe it. I tried on a pair of size 12 skinny jeans and I FIT! All the other jeans I have are size 16. I haven't lost a lot of weight, but I have shrunk and toned a bit and I fit in a pair of Calvin Klein skinny jeans. This is a great feeling.
So besides Saturday being a lot of stuff going on. I ended up not feeling very well last night. By 11pm I thought I might have figured out what was wrong. On Friday I did bad and drank a lot of Pepsi, more than I should have. Saturday I had 1 can, and Yesterday I had none. I was going through withdrawal. I thought I would test that out, I took a sip of Pepsi and I immediately felt better, minus a headache. I was able to fall asleep. Again around 4 am I had been up and down through out the night I took another sip and felt a bit better at least enough to get a little sleep. So, sadly this morning I had a can with breakfast, and I feel a lot better. So, I screwed up, and now I'm back in square one with pop. I need to kick it forever and not want or need it. So, this week is my goal to kick it again and not rely on pop. I don't want the feeling of withdrawal again.
