Week 2 Day 11

Wednesday, January 11, 2012

I do not want to do this but I no longer want to LOOK like I do now emoticon - I want to feel healthier - which I do... which is what is keeping me going and on track.

The habits that are now my lifestyle include:

emoticon emoticon water and tea are all that I tend to drink

oops I do drink one cup of cranberry juice with dinner for my kidney health emoticon

I walk walk walk - bad foot and all - I live in pain anyways - might as well walk. The only day I do not walk is when my pain is above a 7 and I am limping. I do like to do teabo when I can - improvising the exercises.

I do not sit at my computer for more than an hour at a time and have decreased the amount of time in front of it. emoticon

I count my calories and eat healthy foods.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I do not eat fast food and I cook most everything from scratch.
emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

About the only processed food that I eat is Fiber One Cereal - 15 grams of fiber each morning starts my day off right. Due to the phosphorous, I limit myself to 1/2 cup of milk each morning.
emoticon emoticon

I am maintaining my Kidney disease, thyroid disease, osteoarthritis, pain where my gallbladder was due to the surgery, chronic ear and eye infections, my blood work for cholesterol and all that other GOOD stuff is all within normal range. However, I am considered obese. So onward and forward... emoticon

My goal in the next month - to continue the January Challenge - hopeful to lose at least 12 pounds in the next 8 weeks. I will continue to exercise daily and strength train 3-5 days a week. Continue to eat healthy - because I FEEL great when I do! I will continue to log and track my food and exercise.

btw: my profile picture is my inspiration of how I would like to look again. I need to lose about 40 pounds to be there. My goal for now is 30 pounds.... I need to stay realistic in what I can do before the wedding.
