The old me….. April 17, 2009
- The old me would not have gotten right back on track after a bad week!
- The old me would not get up at 5:50 in the morning to walk after being up till 2am studying for a Chemistry test and taking care of a sick 3yr old!
- The old me would not be counting 7 days completely on plan!
- The old me would not have been pleased when she got on the scale this morning and saw ONE pound gone!
The old me does not exist anymore!!!!
Yep, I think I can say now that I am determined enough to stay on plan this time. I am back down to where I was at the end of the first week and -1. Last week was such a bad week and normally it would have thrown me into the I don’t give a s*** mode. I think there are 2 people responsible for me not giving up. One is someone on here who has been lucky enough to reach a big goal and through her daily posts, I feel like it is possible for me to make it to mine. Thanks for that…..The other is my husband, who in my weakest moment became my rock and gave me a reason to keep going. He all of a sudden got motivated and I felt like I had to help him, and that made me commit to this. It has been 7 days for him as well and truthfully I am stunned. He counts his calories and is walking with me in the mornings and he helped me and does not even know how much.
Lets get to the facts
I am drinking water a lot.
I am walking/jogging 3 days a week.
I have been on plan (within calories every day) for 7 days.
I am now getting my fat grams within range also.
I have had about 4 cokes in 3 weeks (but they were all added into my calories).
I have had some comments lately and I wanted to say thanks for reading my blog. Some people I can not write back because their blog or e mail is not listed so I am going to post answers here.
Getfit2009, I think anything I can do at home would help, but when I am here I don’t seem to have 5 minutes away from the kids. I am going to have to do something here for when it rains, and stuff.
Joy, I have been reading your blog as well and thank you for the comments.
Brandie, Thank you for the suggestions I am trying some of them and I appreciate you taking the time to try and help me.
