day 48. Am I creating something new?

Today I enjoyed a nice thunderstorm in the morning! Unfortunately then I didn't get my walk in. By later in the day I didn't make it a priority and got errands and things done, but no walk. I feel like I missed out on something. Can it be that I am creating a body that is craving consistent exercise? also we ate out yesterday due to traveling from my friends house, and today I had no interest what so ever to eat out. that is maybe another clue to creaing a body that is interested in more healthy foods...? I like how these changes are happening, slowly and steadily. I am amazed at how much "fresher" water tastes... Sometimes I prefer water to soda... creating more healthy habbits.

Those are 3 things that I am finding that is changing slowly. What changes are in store for me in the future? I am really looking forward to just being healthier... I am finding this rather exciting!

day 49. slippery slope

Ahhh, I feel the slippery slope beneath my feet. I didn't walk today either. this morning looked like rain, and this afternoon it was sooo hot, and I was busy researching for a new car. It is a slippery slope when you let one day go... and then another... and then another... I better dig in my heels and grab a hold of something sturdy as I DO NOT WANT to fall down.

day 50. Dug those heels in!

We went for our walk this morning. Felt good to get up and moving! I missed the walking very much. Now all I have to do is get the food back under control. I am back to work tomorrow and that will be an ideal day to get back at it and plan in my extra aerobic days as well.

50 days! That is awesome. I forgot to weigh myself, but maybe subconsciosly I was avoiding it because I know it will be up there.

either way here are some accomplishments in 50 days...
1. walking 3 miles a day (almost consistently)
2. choosing better foods, drinking more water
3. avoiding fast food at times
4. working on that "more" list
5. consistently journaling daily
6. Talking DH into going to DLR on our vacation!

For the next 50 days I would like to add to my healthy choices...

1. Keep walking
2. Add in 30 minutes of cardio 3 x week
3. Add in stretching and push ups/push up position 2 x week
4. Schedule the exercise
5. journal all foods I'm eating
6. work on curbing evening snacking


So for this week
Mon. 30 min. cardio
Tues. stretching & Push ups
Wed. 30 min. cardio
Thurs. stretching & push ups
Fri.
Sat. 30 min. cardio
Sun.

This gives me Fri and Sun as make up days, in case I don't get out of work on time. I like this and I am going to print it out so I don't forget my plan.

wish me luck!

day 51. OH the irony of it all...

Of course I have this grand plan in place... and what happens? I feel sick after work, oh yeah, that's ironic. I RARELY nap anymore because then I just can't sleep at night, and today I came home, hit the couch, watched my today show in about 1/2 hour, fell asleep on the couch, my headache was getting worse and worse, finally made it to my bed and slept an additional 1 1/2 hours. A bit frustrating as I had plans for tonight, oh well, the nap did feel good, just hope I can sleep tonight now. Took some tylenol PM and that should help I think.

Here's to a better day tomorrow.

day 52. Hmmm, well...

Well today was a late day at work. I didn't even get home till after 8:30 pm, dinner at 9pm so needless to say I didn't get my walk in today. And it was BEAUTIFUL outside, cool, low humidity, the outdoors was calling my name!

On the upside, I did sleep ALL NIGHT LONG! Can't believe I did that after such a long nap the day before. I guess I really needed it. Now I am tired, but had to quick log in. At least I didn't snack after dinner!

day 53. Sleep is so important!

I am so tired right now. Eyes tired kind of tired! DID NOT SLEEP LAST NIGHT! It was aweful, when I did fall asleep had the craziest dreams, kept waking up. Frustrating. Hopefully my sleep will even out and I can get back to healthy habbits.

Good choices today:

Ate my apple at lunch. This is big because we had dessert brought in, and even though I had a piece of the cake, I WANTED my apple! that is a step in the right direction.

Drank lots of water
Plan on going bed at a reasonable time to get my sleep!

Vija my good buddy! How exciting is this? Wish I had known of it sooner but I have been off wish for a while and not sure why

Its the most supportive group ever.

Don't have time to write now- I did send a private email.

Just know I am so proud of you for doing this and for sticking with it.

Count me in, I am with you for sure. We are going to Iceland August 17 - 30 and am doing a 10k on August 20. Scared, but exciting!

Anyway, I will be a daily visitor, my promise to you (except when in Iceland - we will be off the grid, but I will catch up when I get back)

More later.

Linda

Glad to have the company! I actually read your journal today at lunch time and thought to myself that I am alot like you! I was going to tag along on your journal as well. I will post there in a bit. I think we can learn alot from each other and help each other too. Your posts really inspired me today.

Day 54. I FEEL GOOD!

Lots of healthy choices today! AND I FEEL GREAT!!!!!

Woke up early this morning, I was supposed to exercise but didn't really feel like it, so I decided that I would exercise in the evening. I didn't go back to bed, but got up and did some stuff around the house. Realized didn't have anything for lunch and had to decide if I wanted to buy in the cafeteria or make a lunch. Sucked it up and made lunch! Had subway for dinner and even added in tomatoes! Didn't snack after dinner. Then I was pretty comfy on the couch and was debating about exercise... but got up and did an exercise DVD for 1/2 hour! THEN went for a 1/2 hour walk with DH. Drank lots of water and avoided soda after dinner.

OH I FEEL GOOD!


It is amazing how just a little bit of exercise improved my mood and I physically feel so much better. I am so glad I got up and moved, it just felt right!
