Wow I can't believe I have been doing this for almost two weeks. I think I have done very well watching what I eat and exercising between three and five days a week. I was so sick yesterday, so I didn't log any exercise in, but I ate a healthy amount of food without going over any fat calories carbs etc. I am hoping to be in good enough shape come January where I can walk around USF without wearing myself out. It is such a big campus, and I will be walking all around the campus. When I went on Friday for orientation I thought oh my goodness I am never going to make it. I have lost about four pounds, which I should be proud about, but I think I was hoping for bigger results. I am trying to stay focused on the healthier aspect of eating right and exercising not the results I see on the scale. I don't want to get depressed, because sometimes if I think I should be losing weight faster than I am and don't I fall back into the phase of well who cares. My husband keeps telling me how proud he is of me, and has also been trying to get in shape. We try and compete with each other, which is kind of fun, but I have to remind myself that he is in better shape than me, so he can do more than I can. For now that is. I am hoping to stay motivated and keep my spirits high until I don't have to stress about if I make a mistake and eat one thing wrong. I want to make myself ok with eating, and not eat out of depression or boredom, which I have been known to do, but only eat when I am hungry. Well thanks for reading my blog. I think this helps keep me on track when I write.
