Starting Fresh!!

Saturday, June 27, 2009

I had a great vacation! Very restful!! But it made it quite clear to me that I need to exercise and take care of myself. I didn't have the stamina that I had last year. I felt tired and whiney. And we're not even going to mention the bathing suit and the huge mirror in the bathroom right across from the shower!! Scary!!

What I am going to do is let this remind me of why I started this journey in the first place -- To Be Healthy!! Yes, I want to look better, too, but truly if I did not lose an ounce I want to feel healthy again!

Hubby and I stopped at the farmer's market yesterday and got some fruits and vegetables. And I'm starting with a clean house, too! I got up early this morning and weighed and measured and logged it in. I've reset all my markers to start TODAY! From this point I am starting!! "Forgetting what is behind and pressing forward to achieve my goal!"

As much as I would like to have a Magic Pill to make this all go away, it's not going to happen. So I'm starting on Stage 1. I'm logging everything I eat. I'm exercising everyday. I'm starting back on my Beck Principles, too. I'm not binging! I'm not mindlessly eating! I will exercise!

I'm watching the neighbor's dog, Sadie, this week so I need to go see her in the morning. I think I'll make my morning exercise a brisk walk with her and then add some strength training in as I have time. I'll keep the evening walk with Hubby and Angel, but of course include Sadie -- that'll pick up the pace!

I'm off to work on my new "Advantages to Losing Weight" list. and dress so I can walk Sadie. Here's to Healthy!!

    You can do it! I'm doing it for health as well. If I don't lose another 20 lbs. or so, I will have to go on pills for diabetes.....and I DON'T want to do that. Type II Diabetes is a lifestyle disease, and my lifestyle needs to be healthy!
