I have not been so good about tracking my nutrition on the site. I need to get in the habit of that. It really helps when you are THAT accountable for everything you throw in your mouth. I am also setting up a "workout schedule" and posting it on my wall. I tried with the tracker to take with me to the gym, but I think if I actually set out certain things to accomplish on certain days and have it hanging over my head every morning, it might inspire me a little more to get on the ball with it. I did get in front of the video camera last week. But have not really kept up with that either. It's no wonder New Years Resolutions are so hard to keep, the new year comes, we make promises to ourselves, but in the end we just fall back into the same old rut we were in the year before. I have been really good about my water consumption though. Those little flavor packs really help. I never much enjoyed the taste of plain water, but I find with those little packets I am sucking down the water pretty well everyday. At least two 32 oz bottles, sometimes I am almost done the third by the time I go to bed! Anyhow, one other note is that I am going to attempt running. A friend of mine posted on his facebook that he was on week 2 of the 5K plan. So I checked into it. Seems that even if you are the non-athletic type, this running plan will have you running a 5K in 90days! So I read the plan, printed it out and am going to go for it. It is 3 days a week, and seems pretty managable on my end, so today starts day one of that! I am going to reserve sunday as my "day of rest" it has worked for me in the past. It is time this weight came off and came off for good. I keep going through my closet trying on clothes that I know don't fit and getting frustrated and upset with myself, which only leads to me feeling bad. Well the good new is, I will hopefully have an interview in the next two weeks or so, and if the stars are in my favor I will get the job. Part of my block with the weight loss is that I just feel utterly depressed all the time, I haven't had steady work in over a year, and it's a miserable feeling. Sure I have time to do all the stuff I wanted to now, but on the other hand there is no money to do it, and no motivation to get it done anyhow, so the house continues to be a mess, I sit and watch the DVR and munch aimlessly on Triscuts. NO MORE, wish me luck, I hope I get the job, and that this resolution won't go to waste like it has in all the years past!
