Starting Again....Again

Monday, October 28, 2013

So I have been just coasting along, not eating really good or really bad and not exercising much above extra walking during shopping or at work crossing campus for meetings. Haven't gained any weight and even lost a tiny bit. But, I don't feel energetic, in fact I'm tired almost all the time. I know the change in weather causes some of this - it is hibernation time after all - but I think a lot of it is due to lack of activity and not eating better. So my husband and I bought the new spark book for the kindle and I'm going to get it read this week so we can start the actual diet part of it next week but I'm going to start NOW on the exercise part. It's almost time for me to go back to the doctor's office and I want to show some big results. I have lost weight since the last visit, so that's great, but I'd like to be down another 5 pounds minimum and I want to make sure my numbers are in line so I don't have to start cholesterol medicine and can maybe even decrease my diabetes medicine. I am going to start a new streak today - I am going to work out a minimum of 30 minutes per day (hopefully more) every day between now and my doctor's appointment sometime in December. I need to get a handle on my eating and my exercise. I have just let life happen lately and I need to take control and drive the bus rather than it driving me. I know what the right things are - I just have to do them rather than letting Taco Bell call my name and pull me off track. I have done this before and I know I can do it again. I am worth it and I need to put myself first - food is such a short term satisfaction and then there is way more regret that follows than the food was worth. I need to somehow remember that when I start to veer to the left. I'm tired of starting over...again...so I need to make this stick and pull myself together. I WILL be successful because I deserve to be happy and healthy and only I can make this happen so here goes!
