Today has been a good day.
I pre-ordered the new Spark book, and started my 3 month trial with Spark Coach. I'm going to let go of this "perfect" mentality. I'm going to, hopefully, for the first time in my life, learn some MODERATION. What a weird word. But I'm gonna do it.
I got to sleep in late this morning, ok not "sleep" but lie in bed with my dogs and read anyway, had a green smoothie for breakfast, work was a short day, grocery shopped (OMG spent over $200 but I'm stocked! Lots of whole foods! NO junk! And no weird crap I don't even know what to do with), reorganized the fridge and pantry, walked! and started Coach Nicole's Firm, Fit, and Fired up DVD. I did the first 10 minute workout - lower body. It wasn't bad at all. I've not done any strength exercises in so long, mainly because of my knee - and that I can't even straighten it fully. I have bad arthritis in my knee for some unknown reason. The only thing I an do is get the cortisone shots, and even they don't really last that long.
I love walking with my husband - and we walked all four of our dogs - my little shih tzus for 18 minutes around the block, and my pug and hound mix the rest of the time. My tzus never get walked, and my little Sashi is pooped! I'm really going to commit to walking myself, my hubby, and all four of my dog-babies.
So I'm sitting at right about 1430 calories eaten for the day, and 45 minutes of walking + 10 minutes of strength. And that's mighty fine moderation for me :)
I also had fish today. Not that I don't eat meat... I don't eat meat when I eat "healthy." I'm so obsessed with being plant-based vegan... I either only eat plants... or everything else. Herein lies my problem. I'm going to just accept myself as an opportunistic omnivore and get over it. I want to be vegan, and I've done it in the past, but I'm just going to get over it. I'm so tired of holding myself to standards that no one else is lol.
I just want to be healthy. I want to get this weight off of me - for the last time (except baby weight! :))
