Zig Zag is all I do these days.

Well, as is par for my course, after I wrote my last post about how I approach food I then went on to stuff my face at every meal for a week. I had a conversation with Emily about this and she asked, “so why the self-sabotage???” and I had to think for a few minutes before I finally came…

How I approach food these days

Let’s talk about food for a minute, shall we? After all, it is my favorite subject. Actually I don’t want to talk about certain kinds of foods, but how I approach eating as a general rule. In the last couple-ish years, I’ve been working A LOT on my relationship with food and I’m happy to say that I’m finally recognizing some…

Three Days in row. Where’s my gold star?

Had to peel myself out of bed this morning – 5:15 came way too early! But I got up and did this full body video, except for the jumping jacks. The video description said “low impact” but to me jumping jacks are not low impact, so I just did a side step, toe tap thing while the instructor did 5000 jumping…

That 5 minute stretch felt really good.

Got m’self up at 5:15 again this morning and I had planned on doing a full body workout but since I couldn’t find a sportsbra anywhere in my closet (seriously where did they all go???) I decided to do a Leslie Sansone walking workout instead because it’s low impact (and wouldn’t need a sportsbra for it). Is that TMI? Sorry!…

Admins Day Mystery

Yesterday was Administrative Professionals Day, and I got squat. I posted my lament on Facebook (because isn’t that what you’re supposed to do now when you want to whine about something?): BUT THEN, this morning, these were delivered to me: Aren’t they gorgeous??? The card read “Happy Administrative Professionals Day. We appreciate you.” Naturally I felt terrible for whining on…

If you worked out, but you didn’t take a picture of the treadmill readout, did you really even workout?

Got my self out of bed at 5:15, did 15 minutes on the treadmill, ran to the bathroom, came back and did another 15 minutes.

Am I fit yet? 🙂

Workout: 5:30am, Treadmill, 1% incline, 30 minutes, 3mph

It’s nothing stellar, but it’s mine.

And so it begins…

These are my “beginning” pics. Posting these so I’ll have something to compare against later. For reference, I’m 46 years old, 5’3″, 203.4 pounds. Blood pressure is on the high end of normal, cholesterol is slightly high – but not alarmingly so, all other numbers fall in the normal range (as of last fall when I had blood work done). Yes, I listed my weight. So tired of being ashamed of that number, tired of trying to hide it, tired of feeling the literal and figurative weight of it.

My goal is to feel amazing, have energy to spare, bring all my blood work numbers into the normal range, and feel like I live an active life. And oh yeah, fit into smaller pants because these size 18s are not working for me.
