Weighing out the options
Thursday, November 15, 2012
Yesterday and today I walked at work.
I didn't get to put in my ten minute stretches, though I got 3 minutes in yesterday.
Yesterday I walked about a mile, today a mile and a quarter.
I also went to the allergist.
My BP was slightly up, and my weight is NOT where I want it to be.
Kicking my rump in gear. I officially got back to where I was when I started all this. So embarrassed and ticked off at myself.
I keep telling myself that I am in better shape to do this now than a year ago though, because my focus was on recovering from the surgery. Now I can focus on improving my health, losing the weight, and healthy eating. So - my current "starting weight" is higher than my starting weight in 2009, by five pounds. I didn't need it then, and I certainly don't need it now. Any new clothes I buy I want to be smaller, not larger.
So glad I am working somewhere that allows me to walk, even if it is just bathroom breaks. Those steps add up.
Oatmeal for breakfast, cup of coffee.
Lunch - rice cake with 1 tbl of peanut butter, and nearly a whole apple.
Getting my water down today = over 5 already, starting my next water bottle soon.
Ok, There are no options.
I have to do this.
I will set my weight at the truth of my doctor's scale yesterday and face it like a changed woman. On a positive note, my allergies and asthma are in better control than a year ago.
