Finally finding the energy!

Tuesday, August 14, 2012

I must say, I am pretty excited about this new journey I am about to start. This isn't about just losing and maintaining my weight, this is about a healthier lifestyle. I am the type of person that, for the most part, am pretty healthy to begin with. I enjoy salads and veggies and fruits and do often go to the gym. My problem is that I do stray and get fried this and fatty that accompanied by junk food and then just don't feel like going to the gym, so my weight has been up and down. Lately, I noticed that with the summer and the heat, I just can't find the energy to do anything besides stay inside and keep cool with the AC and cuddle with my dog on the couch while watching TV. I mean, I am active, but in the sense that I am going to meet friends at a bar to see a band or BBQ in someones back yard.
I have only been on here for one week and yes, maybe I am getting a little ahead of myself, but just from making sure I meet my daily goals and keeping within my nutrition limits, I find that I am full of more energy and just more excited and pumped for each day. I use taking my dog for his walk as a way to get in extra cardio and am now taking him on longer walks at faster speeds. (I know he must really be enjoying my new journey too!) I know that each day resets my goals from the previous and that I want to do a better job today than yesterday. I am competing with myself. Now the question is, which me will win?
Here is to reaching for the stars! ***

    It's great that you have such a positive attitude! I realized the same thing about having more energy after eating nutritious foods and staying within your calorie limits. I also found that I am not hungry between meals and I'm not snacking in the evenings anymore. Keep that positive attitude and you will make it to your goal.

    It is awesome when things start to fall into place and like you I find the tracking of food and exercise has made a world of difference in my mindset. I'm so happy you've had such success already and can't wait to see what future success you have.
    Keep up the great positive attitude.
