So, Still haven't exercised but once around the Marina (2 miles) in roughly 2 weeks. I have been soda free though since 9/9. I am trying to eat healthier but am not really great at logging it into the "My Fitness Pal" app. I feel that if I have had a bad day of eating then I just don't put it in because I know that I didn't eat well and don't want to be reminded by it. Maybe I don't want to be thinner? Maybe I am afraid of what will come if I do get fit?
I did get a VA job though and have promised myself to get a gym membership as soon as I get my first check. I don't have an official start date but have a physical on Monday and I am sure that I will have one shortly thereafter.
My plan for weight loss stands as this:
To lose 80 pounds/have BMI under 29/have single digit pants size by my birthday 2014. It can be any one of those or a combination as long as one of the 3 are met. (If one is done though then it is likely that another will be too.)
For every time I go to the gym or go walking I get a Starbucks Venti Iced Black Tea
For every 10 lbs lost I get a pedicure at the beauty school.
For every 25 lbs lost I get a massage at Ralston School of Massage.
When I have gotten under 200 pounds I get a new pair of cross trainers.
When my goal is achieved I will get a pair of Miss Me Jeans and take a trip somewhere.
At home I weigh 212 first thing in the morning. At Plasma today I weighed 221.6 with shoes on and clothes on and after eating breakfast. Tomorrow I measure arms, bust, waist, hips, thighs and calculate my BMI and on the 9th of every month I will measure until my goal is achieved.
I almost purchased a soda today but stuck to my guns and didn't. I have craved it off and on for the past several weeks. I catch myself and have to remind myself of the goal. Hopefully soon the cravings will stop.
I did get a new set of interchangeable knitting needles on ebay for much less than retail. I knit for about 4 hours straight today. They are nice and I am taking advantage of the free time that I have for the moment to get some Xmas gifts finished. I have many to do. I am glad though that some people I will actually be able to buy for this year because of the new job : )
Well, until next time....
