Baby Step Victory!

Wednesday, December 16, 2009

So today, I took some baby steps that I'm ever so proud of.

1. I ate breakfast. This is a huge task for me as the thought of eating in the morning makes me want to vomit. Hooray!

2. I drank 4 glasses of water. Not 8, but I'm getting there. This is coming from drinking barely 1. I found this amazingly cute bottles at the grocery that are 10oz =]

3. I worked hard all day running up and down the stairs, running around our huge warehouse, and lifting several heavy totes. After all that and a trip to the grocery store, I got on the elliptical for 10 minutes. This is a huge deal and the thing I'm most proud of. After the first 3 minutes, I was dying. My thighs were on fire. I really didnt think I was going to make it. I told myself I could do it, it wasn't going to kill me no matter what I thought. After the 10 minutes I jumped off and stretched. I downed a glass of water. I sat down for a minute and I felt my body just tingle afterwards. The feeling is really indescribable. So I decided that yes I could go another 5 minutes. Only because I thought I couldn't even do 10. So I jumped back on for 5 more minutes while I listened to some T-Pain. Amazing =] I felt SO accomplished afterwards.


On top of all the goodness today, I had a fantastic dinner. Yes, I did skip lunch. Not on purpose, I'm still getting into this routine. I'm still a work in progress =]

anyways, my dinner consisted of a turkey sandwhich with some salami(i know, not the greatest but I was low on calories today), on 12 grain whole wheat bread and 1 1/2 tablespoons miracle whip. I forgot to buy spinach =[ It was missed. My cheese of choice was provolone.

On the side I sliced up a medium sized apple and scoped out 2 servings of baby carrots. I shared this with my lady =]

I love food picture journals. So I'm contributing =]

I also took some "before" pictures. My initial weight was 250 and I'm not sure I have any pictures online of that mess. These are from today, 233! Still terrible..

I know, my clothes are kind of baggy. Ill take some more, no worries =]

We are definitely on our way. We are stocked up with awesome foods. I have fruit for breakfast and oatmeal, a turkey sandwich for lunch, and we are having fajitas tomorrow night for dinner. I also have my snacks, and my cute little water bottle. I'm ready for tomorrow. I have a game plan. For the first time ever, I'm ready to do this for me, not for anyone else. I had a calm wash over me and its a different feeling this time. I know, without a doubt, that this is it. All the pieces fit and I couldn't be happier or more accomplished.

    YAY YAY YAY! Big props for the elliptical, especially after a day of work. Keep putting that foot in front of the other and you will get there. The small changes are what matter because you will stick with it.
