A New Day

3 Nov

Today I started weight watchers.  I’ve done weight watchers years ago several times but the last time I did it was maybe 4 years ago.  I have let go of some “negatives” over the last few days.  I am so frustrated because I cannot fit a lot of my clothes and I refuse to buy new pieces.  I’ve been eating for no reason.  I guess you can call it emotional eating.

Loving It

8 Sep

Today was a good productive day for me.  I didn’t walk in the morning because I went to bed too late the night before so I walked this evening.  I did my regular 2.5 miles (about 5,400 steps) I will step it up and add a lap or two next week.  While I was walking, I was doing a lot of smiling! I really feel good guys!

PS They bake fresh cookies at my job Mon-Wed and today was chocolate chip…they smeeled sooooooooo good but I did not eat one.  Yeah me!!

Labor Day

I had a great restful weekend! I am ready to get my workout on this week.

House Day

4 Sep

Today was a “house” day.  I stayed in and cleaned and worked on a couple of projects.  I ate very well today.  I usually snack all day when I lounge but I didn’t this time.  I walked yesterday after work and I felt the burn.  I am about to go walk in about 45 minutes.  I started doing strengthening exercises; squats and wall push ups.

I feel good!

This morning I walked my regular walk…2.5 miles.  It took me about 42 minutes.  I walked 5,429 steps.  I made this great amazing chili! I posted the recipe on my Facebook page.

Today was a good day!

I woke up this morning to walk and when I was in my first lap, this lady came up to me and asked me “are you a Delta?” I said, “yes.” She was behind me the entire way to the park.  She lives next door to me and she is a memeber of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority.  Now, Ms. Marge is over 60 years of age but man, she was getting her walk on!! She has an entire crew!!  Every second she is saying good morning to someone.  I met 4 of her walking buddies.  Although I wanted to put my earbuds in to listen to my music, I decided to engage in the conversation.  Ms. Marge completed 6 marathons!! Yes, I said 6.  Walking with Ms. Marge and her crew today was a treat indeed.  I completed 7 laps and had to leave.

Lunch~Salad with romaine, spinach, chicken breast, blue cheese crumbs and balsamic vinaigrette.

Dinner~Chicken again, mixed veggies, tomato slices, avocado.

I took my regular vitamins and had 8 glasses of water.

Today was a good day!

~A Fresh Start~

Today I decided to blog about my weight loss journey. I am eating ALOT and don’t know why. All of my clothes are either too tight or to little and I refuse to buy clothes. I hope that I will get the motivation that I as I embark on this journey. I know that I can do it…
