I still weigh 234.3. And that's a good thing, 'cause after all the sodium I had yesterday I thought I might go up in weight. Today I will drink a vinegar shooter and lots of water and low sodium and probably will show a lower weight tomorrow. I have been tracking intake and the totals look good.
I have a firm resolve to stay focused and keep track of what I eat and exercise 3-4 times a week in the pool and walk on treadmill or outside on the days I don't swim. This past week I walked an hour and swam 45 on the same day and did notice the next day feeling better mentally and physically. I have to stay active or my knees get so stiff (one recent knee replacement and the other is bone-on-bone). Getting the walk in when I swim in the evening is going to be easy. I save $1.25 on parking meters and I am able to walk in the skyway and not on the street after dark and as winter gets deeper, I will be indoors for the walk, also, when I am slightly damp, so why would I consider parking 1/2 block away at the meter?
Motivation, I have decided, is making promises to yourself and keeping them. You know how you feel when someone makes a promise to you and doesn't keep it? I feel betrayed. Why betray yourself.... I will make those promises to myself to exercise and eat the right things...and I will like myself more and trust myself, too.
