Day 2!

Thursday, July 16, 2009

Ok so day 1 wasn't just the day I signed up on spark, but I did do a few things. I was going to have my "cobbler" around 3pm but when I realized how many calories I'd chalked up already I decided to skip it. To clarify, my 'cobbler' consists of oats, frozen berries, and sugar, so it's not actually bad, but my problem isn't eating bad foods it's overeating in general. At 3pm I honestly wasn't hungry, I just wanted to eat something cause that's what I do. Writing things down changes EVERYTHING, when you actually look at what you're consuming in a day it gives you a serious reality check.

So, I figured if I was going to do this I may as well attempt to do it right. Looking at my goals motivated me to at least jump on the spin bike for 15 minutes. It was only 15 minutes, but my mom always said that 15 was better than nothing, and I think it gave me a jump start for day 2.

It's day 2, so this morning I woke up at 6am, packed my backback, walked downstairs and jumped on my bike. Real bike not the spinner. And then I rode my bike to work this morning! Yea ME! It's actually only a 2 mile ride, but it's something, and better something than nothing. I'll eventually work my way up to full on workouts. In the mean time, I'll continue to stay active. I've got a softball game on Saturday and Volleyball on Sunday. Will blog about those later.

Side note: Sunday after church my Sunday School Class is going to lunch at a Cuban restaurant we've never tried before. Here's hoping I order wisely!

    Thanks for your support and suggestions for my visit to the Olive Garden today, SLYNNK821! I survived it; only had one small serving of salad, one and one half breadsticks (which was incredible for me to stop at that amount!), iced tea with NO sweetener, and ONE bowl of pasta fagioli soup. Quite a victory food-wise!

Good for you for riding your bike to work today! It is 110 her in Phoenix today, so that type of transportation is brutal during this heat.

Hope your Day 3 goes as well as Days 1 and 2! emoticon

  I enjoyed your blog. I am so glad you are off to a good start. You sound alot like me. I am also trying to take off 15 pounds before my weight gets too out of control. I also over eat. I find myself eating just to eat! I am working on portion control - big time! Have a great day! Amy

    Congrats on riding your bike to work! I wish I could but I live in Houston and that would make me certifiably crazy emoticon I do ride my bike when I go to the gym close to my house, it's only 1 mile away, so I feel good about saving gas and getting a little extra exercise in. It'll get easier to exercise as you get used to it. Watch out - you might become addicted like I did!! Good luck emoticon
