I got up this morning and didn't feel like doing anything. So, I dieted and exercised anyway. One day you feel great- the next day, blah.
I decided to go for a 3 mile walk. It was gloomy and overcast, which I kind of liked. No mosquitos- finally. I have decided to just eat 1600 calories and exercise one hour a day, six days a week. I am going to weigh myself on October 18th and see what those calories and that amount of exercise achieved. Kind of like a science experiment. I put the scale away for exactly the reason why 'new me' in her comment on my last post, had a slight issue with my bad attitude regarding the amount of weight I lost. I was somehow glomming on to the idea that 11 lbs a month was "slow". It isn't. She's right. I think the daily weigh in was creating a sense of urgency that just shouldn't be there. This isn't a contest.
I am going to be eating this way...exercising this way...for the
Somedays I feel really good about it, I am not being deprived. Occasionally I can have a treat.
Other days I feel a bit like I am in perpetual pergatory, kind of like bill murray in Ground hog day. On the upside of that movie...He learned some very important lessons.
Where's Jack's blog, I need a laugh.
On the upside, I have a camera, so I can start posting some pictures.
Hope you all stuck to your plan.
