Well, it has been a long time since my last entry. there were several days where i was at my mom's and not near a computer and then and then and then a story that is often told. losing commitment. I have been exercising every day--at least one-half hour of aerobic exercise at the gym. now that school has started i leave home at 7am and get at least 30 minutes in before school starts. i am even able to exercise pretty hard. posting almost as much calorie loss as when i did it mid-day. i am not sure how long i am going to keep it up, but at this point it seems to make the most sense because it seems that a lot of things come up after work. frankly, i wasn't sure if i could go in the morning and exercise. i am not a morning person--and it has only been three days--but it actually feels good to get it done early...now i have to get back to the calorie intake diet and keeping track of everything i eat. i have not gained any weight in the last 2-3 weeks but i have not lost any either. so it is time to work on that. my next step is to eat a measured snack before bed and stop binging before bed. i do that so i don't wake up hungry, but the last few nights i have eaten after going to bed anyway. got to not get back into that habit. i took a big step today signing up to be on an exercise team on the spark people. i need to connect more and i think this will help. the goals to get points are aerobic exercise 45 min per day and putting my points in every day. the extra goal that i made was to not eat after going to bed. i figure this will help me get back on track. so here i am ready to renew my membership.
