I have successfully navigated yet another

Thursday morning. Thursday's are by far my hardest day and I tend not to get up and exercise on Thursday mornings. This morning I did get up though and put in 3 miles on the treadmill. Now the 3 miles were sad; I did not feel like doing them and they were really hard and I walked like 4 times but I did it!!!! That is a huge step in the right direction.

Eating is going well and I'm very pleased with myself. I have not had any junk food all week (except for some salty snacks on the way out to walk the dogs). I don't even feel like junk food. That is a HUGE step forward.

Today is my Friday, woohoo!!!! I'm taking off Friday and Monday because my friend is in town from the Mainland. I hope to do some hiking and biking over the next 4 days. That is of course providing it doesn't rain :(

Well, I guess I'll go get some work done. Maybe I'll get out of here early......

Hard body in the making

At least that's how I feel. My muscles feel just the tinest bit sore (in a good way) and I feel like I'm not jiggling as much.

I have decided to realign my focus. Instead of dwelling on the number on the scale I am going to focus on my size. I did not measure myself last weekend but I will this weekend. I will keep track of the size of the clothes I wear and how they fit and how I feel in them. I know exactly what I want my body to look like and it does not involve a number on the scale. So even though I will be going to WW every Saturday I am not going to be so concerned about the scale.

Work is slow right now and I'm going to take a couple of days off at the end of the week; I can't wait!!!! I need a day off now and then just to recharge mentally. Alicia is coming in tomorrow so I hope to get some hiking done. I don't know what she has planned.

Well, I guess I should do some work; that is what they pay me for.........

I Feel Good....... I knew that I would now......

So after a week of debauchery and gluttony I am back on track and feeling awesome. I started back on Bob Greene's Total Body Makeover and a new running schedule. I did my first strength workout last night and can feel my butt, back, and arms; not bad but definitely a little sore. I have decided that I do not really like exercise; god knows, I've tried for years to convince myself I do; but I do love the way I feel and look. My stomach is beginning to feel tighter and looking flatter. I noticed as I was walking around work this morning that I can look down and see my hips, knees, feet, my entire lower body. There's no stomach in the way. It's a miracle!!!!!

On other fronts things are going well. We are hanging in there. The money situation is not great, but we are not going to end up homeless either. On that note I think I will go get some work done.....
