So, I did it last night! I keep talking, and I just did it! I exercised! I did 20 minutes of aerobics on one of my Kathy Smith DVD's, and then I got out my new workout for my Wii. Um...coordination? What's that? I swear I know how to do the moves for kickboxing. But, apparently I can't coordinate jabs and crosses with pushing the button when the box is in the square and I am actually punching. I will keep at it though, and it kept me moving for another 10 minutes so I actually worked out for 30 minutes. Now, it was 9:30 at night, but that is better than nothing!
I have become one of those crazy coupon people and have been scoring some good deals. For some reason (although it is not my best by far) I was particularly excited about last night's quick trip to Target. I think it's just because I got such a good deal on the frozen entrees that make lunch easy. I got 10 WW's entrees, 4 10ct packages of pens, 3 2ct packages of sharpie's, a new shower curtain liner, 2 bottles of peroxide, and one bottle of nail polish remover for $11.02 after tax. Not bad if I do say so myself. The receipt said I saved $23.96. But, now I have no room in my freezer. Going to do more clipping tonight to head to walmart this weekend and get some more freebies.
My financial health is slowly starting to improve. I have an addiction that I am trying to beat and have only indulged in the bad behavior once in somewhere around the last 6 weeks. This is a 10 year old problem, so once in 6 weeks is a vast improvement. I have to think about it a lot so that I can make it and beat this addiction. I am proud of myself and can't wait to say that I have made it a year! Long way to go, but I know I can do it. I KNOW I can.
Eating didn't go so well yesterday. I started to head out to lunch at noon, and problem after problem came up. One of them took over an hour to deal with. I didn't get to eat my lunch until 4pm. So, I just got a foot long sub and made it lunch/dinner. Not the best eating plan, but there just wasn't much I could do about it. I will be heading home for lunch today (on time!) so it should be a little better.
I have decided that I am going to start weighing myself every day to stay on track until I get back down to where I was a couple of weeks ago. That was 173.8. This morning I was at 175.4, so I don't have much to go. Then, back to once a week on Wednesdays for the official weigh in.
I know that becoming a better me is a journey. It will take time, and I just have to keep at it. I will get to where I want to be, and someday will be the person I want to be and have the life I want. And, I will love myself.
