I'm not sure what to title this blog, but I want to start writing more. It's always been therapeutic. And it will track my progress! So... just warning you now!
I was debating on if I want to go over test results of a blood draw that I had a few weeks ago for work. I didn't want to because 1. I'm terrified and 2. I am disappointed and embarrassed. But thinking of all the love and support of everyone that I have from Spark, so I thought.. What the hell. Why be in the dark besides.. these are for me right?
According the results, I am close to being pre diabetic and if I stay at this weight (222 as of this morning), I have a 90% chance of 1.getting diabetes and 2. having a stroke. For those of who are not aware. I am 23. Very scary results. I need to make a change... NOW. I don't feel as if I eat a lot of sweets and I only drink like... ONE soda a week (LITERALLY!!) . My problem is carbs. We eat a lot of bread (wheat for the most part), we eat a lot of pasta, we eat a lot of potatoes. I know what I need to change. I know I need to exercise more, make better decisions. And if this doesn't get me off my ass and make me work harder then.... I am just.... pathetic. lol I don't know how else to describe it. But I seriously think I would be pathetic for letting these things happen to MY body... MY life. If I can't take care of myself and show enough love for MY WELL BEING.. Then how can I care for anyone else? How can I take care of everyone around me except the only thing that really matters. Yes family is important (hell I'd say my doggy is right up there in importance since he is family) but what good is my family if my family can't enjoy ME?
On a lighter note. Everything else in my test results were amazing. My protien was a lil on the low side, but it reached the minimum. My blood pressure was perfect, my cholesterol was perfect.
So I am very proud of myself for that.
Goals for this week: (Thurs 11/7- Thurs 11/14)
Jump rope 4x
Go hiking on Sun
Aerobic DVD 4x
Eat more freggies
Suck it up and take a before pic

I've seriously lost count on how many times i've given up and restarted... And said that this time I was going to do it.. I'm so sick of the failure and the embarrassment. I signed in today and say that my goal a few months ago was to be 180 pounds by July 18. And here it is June 13, and I'm five pounds heavier than what I was.
Rather than getting upset and making up reasons to why I haven't been even attempting. I'm just going to move on.
I need to start with small goals.. so the goals I chose are:
1. More water/no(less) soda [after I finish this coke zero]
2. I work in a call center which means I sit on my butt, so I wanna take a walk every day.
3. Tomorrow I'm going grocery shopping. Vegetables and fruits here I come!

...when I do, this is what I'll get!
Fresco Crunchy Taco
Sat Fat: 70
Total Fat: 8
I usually get the Volcano Burrito, which I've just realized is over 750 calories!! For one burrito!! So I can eat two of these taco's and still be waaay under!! Even with a Diet Pepsi! :)
Jack in the Box:
Chicken Fajita Pita with small Diet Coke (suggested by the site, I found it under recommendations because my computer wouldn't open the nutritional page)
Since I couldn't open it, the site says it's only 330 cals. Which is much better than the Chicken Teriyaki Bowl that I normally get which is 690 cals!!! Plus with one egg roll when you get the meal?! I can't imagine how many calories that would be.. Totally not worth it though.
Ridiculous! I forgot how amazing calorie counting is lol
But I don't go out too often.. so I'm glad that when I do.. I'll know what to order!!
