Well, lets see, where to start. 10 days ago I decided to take this journey and try to lose some weight. I have lost a pound and am happy with that loss. I have tried real hard to track food and use mostly sparkpeople meals for breakfest, lunch and snacks. As for dinner, I eat in moderation, more vegetables that sort of thing.
I realize how HARD it is right now to make healthy lunches. I brown bag everyday so finding creative meals is challenging. I find I am sticking to the same ones as I have the food in the fridge and it's easy. BUT I know I will tire of that and need some other ideas.
I also realize how many calories are in some foods now that I took advantage of. I thought the other day, I will treat myself, I deserve it, and it won't hurt just once to grab a small wendys' frosty and a small fry. UNTIL I looked up the calories. SO I still bought them, however, I dipped my fries into the frosty, and tossed the rest away. THe frosty that is. Sounds funny and wasteful, but I couldn't go for eating both.
I also found out that Robin's eggs, a easter candy, for 8 pieces has 180 calories. I about croaked. Means I need to really watch what I eat and save those calories for my rewards every so often! lol
My water intake has been helpful, and I have done great with that.
I have been walking, and I did the weight room at work last week. I think I am going to try the ten minute excersice daily challenge.
I am getting this, it will take time, But I think I can.
Sharing a picture of some crocus from my yard this morning. Off to lunch....(I am home sick today, but still plan on the routine and that includes treadmill later.)

I am back, I figured I better start this again. It's been over a year I believe since I was involved with sparkpeople and my body is showing the lack of motivation and excercise.
It started out with going to the mall to spend a gift card...and I really need undergarments and man...I don't want anyone to see me. Its time to crack down. I can't handle this body. I ended up with some things, but frustrated and glad that's over. (I HATE SHOPPING).
I need this for me, I need this for my family. I am the heaviest EVER and I don't like it.
So, here I go....I NEED TO DO THIS.

And I MUST say today, after working out, I feel great. I can feel my energy coming back. I know it's soon, but believe me, I sit and drive a city bus for 8-9 hours and this feels groovy!!
I finished W1 D2 from warm up to cool down on the treadmill 1.73 miles. I also hit the boxing bag for a few minutes. (that's more fun with hubby), so I didn't go as long as I could or should have, and the heater was on, which was right in front of the bag, and Phew tooooo warm for me!
Good luck everyone with your goals, we can do this!!

I take a day off and then another, and then I get out of the routine. I do that with a lot of things so it seems. I joined a team C25k, and I really, Really want to complete this. I am almost afraid in mentioning it because so much of what I do, I don't finish. I am tired of not finishing, completing, losing, etc.
I did W1D1 of the program, and feel good, then did about 10 minutes of beating a punching bag to all get go! That felt GOOD!
So anyways, I need motivation, inspiration, I CAN DO THIS!
Have a good day, good luck with your goals.

Today could have been better, but then it could have been worse.
This one isn't all my fault, I blame my employer for not providing us a restroom when the lock on our's broke, making access non-existent. You see, I drive a bus for a living, a city bus, and we have restrooms available, but my route only has one of those restrooms, and when that one is down, um ya......We were asked to ask the local business'es for restrooms. Thinking that this would be fixed soon, I asked on business once, felt bad, don't like imposing, especially since it's says not for public use, but, hey, the lady was really nice, BUT I just didn't want to be a repeat offender! lol....So I didn't not drink the water I should have to maintain today. As soon as I got off, boy howdy, I chugged! lol As I left work today, 8.5 hours later, the lock still had not been fixed. I am hoping it is fixed tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Otherwise, all was good, food was great, and I got my excersise in too.
Life is good. And lunch and breakfest are ready for tomorrow!! YAY!
