Getting back the willpower

Saturday, November 19, 2011

I am finally finding the strength and willpower to make and stick to a good, healthy way of eating again. It used to be just a way I lived but then I slowly slid out of it when I worked for the veterinary clinic. In just the week of working this new job, I see my attitude, health and energy returning. I actually worked overtime this week and it didn't seem even half the amount of time at the clinic where I usually put in less than 35 hours a week. It just goes to show how attitude affects our energy and desire to take care of ourselves.
I don't know if I'm really losing much weight yet but I do know that I am already feeling better after only a week of trying to be healthier and more consistant in my eating and exercise.
Thursday I didn't use the elevator but once and that was at the end of the day. The amazing thing is that I found out I can do the stairs faster than the elevator can get me there emoticon. Unfortunately yesterday I only took the stairs a couple times but I had several different activities going on that required a lot of things to carry so it was easier on the elevator.
We weigh in each Wednesday at work and I hope to be the "Biggest Loser" this week. It's my first week and I want to show them all the "new girl" is taking it serious and kicking some butt. Also since I"m the Actvities Coordinator its my job to get everyone fired up and going, right? emoticon
I guess I had better stop rambling for now but just wanted to brag a little on my success this week and that to say life is finally getting better. I am going to really work at reaching my goal this time. I can actually see a little light down the road now.
