The First Day!
Thursday, August 31, 2006
Ok, here it goes - I'm ready to get serious (again!) I can't believe I let myself slide so badly. I was at such a great weight after the GI Diet - down from 147 to 125 or so. I was comfortable btwn 125 and 130 - I was in a size 6 and felt so good.
Now I'm back up to 140 (well, this morning it was 139, but still). I'm going to stop eating junk and although I didn't exercise on the GI Diet, I'm defintely going to do it this time. DH and I are already signed up for one night of rec volleyball which is a start, but I'm going to use my elliptical trainer 3-4 nights per week and for now I'll do some exercise dvd's on other nights. Apparently DH threw out the dumbbells, so I'll need new ones so I can do a little weight training too!
So far today I'm doing really well - I've had a banana mocha smoothie for breakfast, approx 16 ounces of water, and a piece of whole wheat toast and sugar free jam. I'm having lunch with Laura at Subway, so I know I can make a fairly healthy choice there.
Tonight I will do 20 minutes (at least!) on the elliptical.
