Time to......


Today is the day. I have had a 24 hour membership for over a month now and have not gone. Today is the day. I signed up for Weight Watchers this week. Today is the day. I need to do something. I know I've said this before, but it bears repeating. I can't seem to focus on more than one thing at a time. Right now I am laser focused on this class I start teaching on Tuesday. Evenings have been devoted to getting things ready for that. Plus, I'm super nervous about it. Because of that, I have not written anything on my dissertation, though I'm itching to write. Also, when a situation exists and I'm not doing something about it, it weighs on my mind. It keeps popping up in my thoughts and I can't get rid of it. So I'm hoping that by rejoining WW and actually going to 24 this morning, I will get these things off my mind. I would love to make this stuff all automatic so I don't have to think about it at all. It's possible, with a little work now. I heard someone say they get up at 3:30 a.m. to go workout so they can be back in time to get their son up and ready. Hmmmm.....Really???? That has been bouncing around the back of my mind since I heard it. Could I get up at 4 a.m. and go workout? Be back by 5:30 and get ready for work??? The gym is literally blocks from my house, so getting there and back is no problem. I have always been a morning workout person. It is only very recently that I've gotten into the afternoon workouts. Hmmm... I think before I decide that, I need to get over there and check things out. Baby steps....... I'm off...


Update: Well, I went to WW and I went to 24. I did it. What is that saying:


Yeah, that's it and it is true. I went to WW and saw a lot of people I know, they are still there. It was like a reunion of sorts. It was nice. Then I went to 24 and I rode the bike for 25 minutes. I really didn't know what else to do and I don't want to pay for a personal trainer, so baby steps. At least I showed up. It's kind of amazing how I feel. I feel like I've taken control of my life again. I feel like I'm back on top. Weird. Just from going to 2 places. Definitely weird.

Came home and made myself a 7 point breakfast with 2 eggs, a pat of butter, a small potato, and a bunch of veggies. Topped it off with some salsa. It was good. I enjoyed it. So I feel amazing and plan to continue that feeling. I have promised myself I'd stick to the program this week and see how it goes. I would love to get below 200 and if I can make some significant progress towards that goal, this week will be a huge success.

My goals for this week:


  • Stick to WW and track all my food
  • Go to 24  at least 3 days a week. 
  • Walk on the days I don't go to 24. 
  • Walk the dogs every day I can. 
Reasonable and not overly ambitious. I am seriously considering a 4:30 a.m. workout. Crazy I know, but I think that might work for me. At least in the beginning. We'll see. Right now, I'm riding the high of showing up.
