On the Road Again.

Tuesday, September 04, 2012

Well. It's official. I'm on the road again. Literally driving all over the great state of Ohio wishing I could get mail sent to my car since that's the place I am the most. Sadly this has left very little time and motivation to do anything productive on this whole 'get healthy and live longer' path I was working on.

Until now.

If you've read my past blogs you'll know that I'm dating a naturally tiny man with the metabolism of a very small, very excited, mouse. And although he loves how I look now I know that being a healthy weight will give me more time with him (and I mean this in the completely morbid sense not in the if I'm thin he'll love me more.)


I got a yoga mat (forgot mine in Chicago) and a yoga DVD (I have a plethora of these in Chicago but I'm a bit obsessed so one more is fine... right?) Last night I was in bed early for me and actually got 8 hours (!!) of sleep, woke up this morning and did 20 min of yoga. It was hilariously bad since I haven't tried to bend like that in a few months, but, I feel amazing.

And I've been tracking my calories and water (I might have gone on a beef jerky/various baked goods binge right before starting tracking again.....)

In all of this I don't have a scale (can't really stand up straight [or at all] in a Jetta). So I'll be basing everything on how I feel and how things fit. I accidentally brought along my 'skinny' jeans. By the end of this I want them to fit well (I can already ALMOST zip).

I'll bet little man doesn't even notice. He hasn't said anything about the 40 pounds I lost since meeting him. Somehow this makes me happy.

    Yep. Was juuuuust able to maintain my weight during this assignment. This makes me happy since I was pretty sure I was going to gain a ton. Now where's my measuring cups to start portion control again.......

    Huzzah! I used to be on the road all over the state in my previous career and know how hard it is to stay motivated. Hang in and what a great idea to get the yoga mat and keep the skinny jeans as your marker!
