Blog titles frequently determine whether I read a blog or not--except for my friends' blogs, of course. I'm naming mine by date right now. Boring? Yeah. I know. If I feel like I have something profound to say (judged purely by my own egotistical standards, of course) then I will probably name that blog something more creative. For now, I'm pushing basics. Regaining accountability. I almost--almost--started with Day 1 (instead of Sunday, May 19). I couldn't bear the thought of that though. I've come too far. And while my habits are currently shot to hell, I have somehow managed to maintain within a pound of my lowest weight prior to the accident. Maintaining a 98 pound loss during the worst tragedy of your life gets you a Get Out Of Jail Free card on having to say you're starting over, right? Therefore, no Day 1.
So here's my accountability for the day.
Exercise for today:
49 minutes on the Elliptical
24 minutes on the treadmill
(Yes these are crazy odd numbers. I have no explanation other than it is the cool down time that makes them "odd").
Eh. It was garbage for the most part, but I stayed in my calorie range.
What I'm proud of:
I went to the grocery after the gym and bought some fresh fruits and veggies, Kefir, yogurt and a couple of other staples. I have healthy food to eat now. My only remaining excuse is that I'm too darn lazy to cook it. And folks, that goes back to one of those essential habits--cooking. I cannot allow myself to get away with "I'm too tired, It's too late, I don't feel like it" again.
I'm also proud that I went 7.35 miles on the elliptical today, most of it between 67-70 (Rpms?????). For the longest time, 50-55 was kicking it for me.
