How's it going?

Saturday, January 05, 2013

Not too shabby. I've set a couple of goals recently.

Number 1 is my defined weight loss goal. I started Sparking again and didn't set a specific goal. So my first one is 10% by March 1. I am already on the weigh there. I couldn't resist the pun...sorry. This gives me a timeline instead of a vague "hey I'm losing weight".

I've have done pretty well and at my last visit my doctor was VERY happy with the weight I have already lost.

Number 2 is exercise. I have a lot of excuses to use to get out of exercising. Most of which involve some kind of pain. I really don't think you can be this heavy for this long and not hurt everywhere!! So to help keep me from being me I got together with a few girls from work.

I walked 1.4 miles on Wednesday and 1.9 on Friday. OMG! To say I'm sore is an understatement and I know that I definitely need new shoes. Is it possible for anything else to hurt? LOL!

Number 3 is water consumption. I really don't care for water flavored water. I find it boring and very not tasty. However, I will drink flavored water and my doctor told me as long as it was sugar free and caffeine free I could count it as water. So for all you purists out there I am sorry but I have to do what helps me consume more water.

For the last 3 days I have been getting 9 servings a day! It's amazing. I'm even keeping it up on the weekend.

I know I'm a work in process but at least I'm progressing. I want 2013 to be my best year as far! emoticon
