Mid Week Update

Hello all! I have been a bad blogger this past week; so imagine my surprise when I came here and saw all your happy smiling faces. Welcome to my page hope to get to know each and everyone of you better.

Monday Bruce (my hubby) and I upped our walking route to 2 miles.  I really expected it to be horrible!  I decided to map out a route around our neighborhood because I knew if we stayed in the complex and just walked around the parking lot that I would find an excuse to stop when I got "tired".  My thinking was if we leave the complex and walk a mile away I have to walk back hence no excuse to stop.

We barely got started and my shoes started bothering me, I really think my feet are shrinking.  I have worn a size 9 for as long as I can remember but now they are rubbing on my heels when I am walking.  I stopped and retied them both very tight and we continued on our journey.   I really enjoyed the conversation and the scenery and we managed 2.11 miles in 45 minutes.  I believe I also conquered that mental block that had convinced me there was no way my 251 pound ass could walk 2 miles.

Tuesday evening we only managed to walk 1.40 miles because hubby was not  feeling that great and I was very tired from the first day back to work after a holiday.

Today started off bad when I got on the scale and had gained a pound and ended even worse when I was out for my evening walk and one of the neighbors dogs bit me.  I still managed to complete a 2.17 mile walk even though my hand was killing me; good thing is it didn't break the skin thank goodness.

My goal for the rest of the week is to stay in my calorie count each day, consume MORE water, walk at least 2 miles each evening and BREATHE!

I didn't

I just realized I never posted my short term goals for the month of February. They mostly are the same as they were for January except for a few minor changes. That is how habits are formed right?

My short term goals to complete by February 29, 2012

1. Walk 45 minutes a day 5 times a week.
2. Drink 64-70 ounces of water a day.
3. Maintain NO SODA
4. No eating after 8:00pm.
5. Lose 10 pounds. (258.0 starting weight)

My long term goals to complete by May 9, 2012

1. Be able to wear the nursing scrubs they sell at Walmart. (Silly but personal)
2. Lose 40 pounds. (268.0 starting weight).
3. Walk 5K "Race for the Cure" on May 5, 2012.

This weekend was terribly hard for me.  I just did not feel well, I am bloated, I am crampy, and I wanted to eat everything in sight... but I didn't.  I also didn't get any exercise, I just laid around in bed and wallowed in my pain and misery.  This is a normal couple of days for me every month.  TOM has never and is still never kind to me.  This part of womanhood I will not miss!

I did manage to get out of bed tonight and make my wonderful hubby a pan of lasagna for our valentines day celebration.  I had a very large salad and a small portion of lasagna with a glass of 2 % milk.  It tasted so wonderful I could have probably ate the rest of the pan.... but I didn't.

So tonight I am celebrating the things I DIDN'T do this weekend.

I was not feeling life today

I got up and went to work, pushed my way through the icky feeling, the catch in my throat, the lack of energy and the lack of my ability to deal with stupid people and made it home tonight. I came home and was going straight to bed, but my DH convinced me that I really should walk or I would feel worse later. Of course he was right and I managed to drag my ass around the parking lot 4 times for my 1.11 mile walk.

I came in showered, ate dinner, and got in the bed to watch some television and there sitting at the foot of my bed was my new exercise bike just calling my name. So I watched Days of Our Lives and peddled my little heart out and clocked 4 miles. I was panting, my heart was beating out of my chest and I was covered in sweat! Back to the shower for me!

Now I am sitting here heavily medicated getting ready to go to sleep. Two more days. Two more days. Two more days. I hope I can survived till the weekend without getting sicker!
