I Love Being A Loser!
Thursday, November 18, 2010
I'm down again... On the scale that is! :D Not quite another pound, but .6 lbs. I'm good with that. Talk about some serious motivation. Loving it! Makes me want to get up and jump around (at least that would be some excercise).
Speaking of exercise, I need to "just do it". I think about it every day. I've managed to "just do it" with other things like cleaning, walking by the donuts, not eating last night's chicken... etc. But when it comes to getting up and doing something I just can't seem to bring myself to do it. I know I'm not looking forward to being reminded just how out of shape I really am. The huffing and puffing and feeling like I just can't do it. It's a real downer. But.... that's how anyone who is obese starts to not be obese. I'll have to talk my husband into a little friendly competition on wii fit perhaps to get me started. He has his tv shows that he wants to watch in the evening but hopefully I won't have to remind him this is more important and more fun. He's been having a hard time sleeping lately and I think if he's active with me it'll help him as well. :)
So off the downer note and back to celebrating more weight lost!! I've found that I LOVE crushed up almonds in my yogurt. Super yummie! Oh, got a new book. It's the recommended reading for my nutrition class. It's called the encyclopedia of healing foods or foods that heal. I forget which way it states it. Awesome book. That along with "The World's Healthiest Foods" which is my class text book for nutrition I'm learning an amazing amount of stuff. I wasn't happy at first how my nutrition class wasn't about the basics of nutrtion really but more about a healthy lifestyle, so it didn't break everything down into carbs, protein, and fats (not yet, looking ahead I see that it does later) but it threw me off gaurd because it wasn't how all my other nutrition classes have been. It's motivated me to make the changes I've been making though and those changes are working so I'm loving my nutrition class now!
