I feel good today.

Friday, May 18, 2012

Yesterday, I bought my wedding dress. It's not a legit wedding dress, though. Since we are getting married in Las Vegas, I just wanted a cute little white dress. I got it at Old Navy. Nothing special, but it's cute, and I love it.

I think it is very cute, but as you can tell, you can really see my stomach. The wedding is six weeks away, and after seeing myself in that picture, I really decided it is time to start working on it. I have been saying that for a while, but now it's true.

I was actually on my way to the grocery store to buy healthy food, but I stopped at Old Navy first, and found that. I bought some yummy fruits and veggies. This morning I had some coffee and a banana (I know that's not a great breakfast but it's better than what I usually eat). At 1pm, I went for a walk around the neighborhood. Since I moved here, I haven't been for a walk anywhere, and my fiance wasn't with me, so I had to figure out a good walking route. I was out walking for an hour. It felt so good to walk, especially since I hadn't done any exercise since January. When I got home, I hopped on here and tracked my route. Turns out it is about three miles. So I walked three miles in an hour. Not bad, considering half the time I was on the phone with my mom, so I was kind of walking slower. When I got home, I had a can of tuna with a little bit of mayo on a piece of bread (I need to use up what we have in the house before I buy more stuff, since my fiance doesn't eat any of it), and an apple. I also had a bottle of water before, and a bottle after my walk.

I am very proud of myself. This is the best exercise/healthy eating day I have had since I moved here. I am on the right track, and I am very happy about that.

I don't really know how much I weigh right now, since I haven't weighed myself since January. I'm sure I gained some weight back. My mom is coming to visit for the weekend, so I am having her bring her scale so I can find out. I don't want to buy a scale, because that's how I stress myself out. I will weigh myself every day, and if I don't see results in a day or too, I get upset, even though I know I shouldn't. I will weigh myself tomorrow, then not again until June 23rd, which is exactly 5 weeks away, and is the weekend before we go to Vegas. I am looking forward to seeing what I can do in those five weeks, if I put my mind to it, even though I don't have a gym membership.
