Woo Hoo!!!

I am officially out of the 220's!!! I haven't been under 220 in almost 2 years so this was a MAJOR success! I've been doing good with working out. On my walk the other day, I actually jogged every other street. I am not a runner at all (unless something is chasing me lol) and I'm okay with not being a runner, but it felt good to know that I could do it if I really wanted to. I walk everyday (unless it's raining) and that lasts about 45 minutes and then I do a 15 minute cardio workout after. My workouts are nothing huge, but it gets my heart rate up and I'm dripping sweat by the end of it and I feel great after, and that's all that matters to me. I love the Biggest Loser and I watch it all the time on Hulu but I have to remind myself sometimes that I am not on that show, so I don't need to be dropping 10 pounds a week you know? Like I said in my last blog, this is not a race and I will slip up sometimes, and I do often. But I try to learn from it and do better the next day and forgive myself. It's going to be a long journey but I'm in it for the long haul and it's all about changing my lifestyle. I like being more active during the day, instead of sitting watching tv and pigging out on chips and cheese. I'm active all day at work, which is good. And then I come home and do my hour workout and I feel good about it. It's not too much and not too little and it's something I can stick to, which is sooo important. I get bored easily and if I can't fit it into my day to day then I won't stick to it. I actually look forward to my workouts now because it's an hour a day that I have to myself. My thoughts are gone and I sweat my stress out, which is the best kind of therapy out there. I was slacking on tracking my food for a few days, but I'm back on track with that, which is good. I realize how important it is to track what I eat, so I know if I'm getting too much of something and if I need more of something else. It gives me better control of what I put in my body everyday. My next goal is to get to 209. After that, 199. Little by little I'll get there, and I'm so excited :) Until next time, kids :)
