Back on Track - DAY 1
Monday, September 24, 2012
So yesterday I had one of those moments. You know the moment when it changes from "I should lose weight" to "I am going to do this. Now".
If you read my blog yesterday here was the plan:
1. Create diet plan - DONE
2. Buy the ingredients - DONE
3. Cook myself a few meals to freeze - NOT DONE
4. Join the gym - DONE
5. Bin the crap in my pantry. - DONE
6. BLOG! I'm going to blog every day for at least the first week while the cravings will be rampant. Then once a week. - IN PROGRESS
So the only point I have yet to complete is the cooking. What a surprise. I have an excuse (Don't I always). When I got back from shopping it was already dark and had made plans to go out. But anyway. Tonight I will do some cooking.
But BIG HAPPY DANCE! I went to the Shire office (basically the owners of the local gym) and went to sign up. Before I got my job 6 months ago I had a concession card for being a student. Which expires in 2 days. So I wasn't even going to show it, cause, I'm not concession. But I thought "Well they can only say no". So I asked if it could get me anything and she was happy to put me as concession. WOOHOO!
So I have a year membership, normally 500, to 375. YES! So very happy about that. In my city/state you would be paying 500-800. :)
So that's the good news. Now the bad news. I ate too many cookies :(
I didn't even think about it. I didn't eat them thinking "Oh, I shouldn't". I simply didn't even think about what I was doing and that I was eating. I logged my coffee and completely did not connect the dots that I even had the biscuits. Oh crap.
Anyway I've completely thrown my calorie range out. So I'll have to go to the gym and do a good "welcome back" session. Though one worry I do have is how unfit I am to 6 months ago. Just walking the dog is getting me all pumped up, whereas before I could run for a few kms if I put my mind to it. Oh well. There is only one way to go and that is UP. :)
