Happy Wednesday Sparkfriends!
Wednesday, July 16, 2014
So I've been at my new job for about 3 weeks now. I'm still getting used to the new computer system, new procedures, and new co-workers. I would love to say that I love it here and am super happy, but I think it's a bit early to say that. I think that I will like it, but I'm just not quite in the swing of things yet.
Anyway, I've been eating terrible, not exercising enough, and gaining weight (again). I keep saying that I'm going to get up at around 515am and walk before work. That happens every now and then, but most of the time when the alarm goes off, I either don't get up or I find things that "need" to be done at home. My eating is off the charts terrible. I shoved 4 donuts from Dunkin Donuts in my mouth this morning and washed them down with a sweet tea from McDonald's. For lunch I had several pieces of thin crust pizza. For dinner we are supposed to eat out.
It's a beautiful day today, I should've brought my tennis shoes with me so I could've walked during my lunch, but that didn't happen. So here I sit typing this blog!
I just read a couple of other blogs where the bloggers were on 10 minute a day fitness streaks and it made me feel jealous. I am the only one holding myself back. And am I that lazy that I can't make myself do something for at least 10 minutes a day? It's just ridiculous.
The boyfriend has been asking me to go for walks with him and he's only got about a 50% success rate. I need to start going with him EVERY time he asks. It's not only good for me, it's good for him (he has diabetes) AND it's good for "us".
I think that I am going to start a 10 minute fitness streak of my own. I need to get into better shape or I'll never survive the 10k I'm in on October 12. I've been thinking about what kind of visual tracking system I'll use and I think I'll use a little glass jar and put a glass bead in it after every workout. If I miss a day, all the beads will be removed and I have to start over. PLUS I'd like to start posting a SP blog daily so you all can help hold me accountable too.
So stay tuned for my updates!
