15 Miles and Counting June 26, 2013

Filed under: Uncategorized — angiemo3 @ 10:52 pm

Today I walked 3 more miles.  That puts my total up to 15 this week.  I was going to do 3 days a week and then I thought ,no I should do 5.  Well i have done 5 days this week and I have logged 15 miles…..why stop?  As long as it is not raining or I just can not find the time to do it, I am going to walk everyday.  Everyday that I put those 3 miles behind me is a step closer to losing weight.

I started walking last Saturday so I am going to make that my official start date.  So each Saturday I will weigh in and log my weight and progress under the goals & progress page.  I keep looking around for motivation and I keep wanting to write something profound, but it just isn’t coming to me right now.  For now I am here and I am working on exercising.  I needs to be more careful of the things and amounts I eat, but honestly I can only focus on one thing at a time right now.  I will be starting day shift at work on 7/22 and that will be a tremendous help to my eating habits. for now my goal is to get fit enough that I can run a 5K at the end of August.  I walk 3 miles a day easy but running is a different monster.  Here is the race I want to enter

Moving Forward June 25, 2013

So three years ago I stopped writing this blog……Well it is still here, my life did not stop three years ago, I did not die. I just gave up.  Nursing school, four kids, and life all kept going and so did my eating.  I think I was around 240 or so back then.  Now I am up to 256.2, I am still a mom to 4 kids, I did make it through nursing school and I am an RN on a trauma floor at a level 1 trauma center.  I still have a son with special needs that is somewhere on the autism spectrum (still un-diagnosed at this time).

I have yo-yoed back and forth in the last three years.  I have done everything you can think of except the silly diets where you eat weird soups or strange things.  I recently tried clean eating which lasted until I got tired of putting so much effort into buying stuff to eat.

Now I just got up one day and went walking.  I have been walking 3 miles/day for the last four days now.  I have no plan or direction yet and I am okay with that.  When I plan too much I set myself up for failure.  I started a FB page . I also opened an e-mail account and attached it to both of these things if anyone wants to contact me.  My one and only plan is to stay motivated and ultimately lose half my current size.  I decided not to delete the old posts on here just so I can remember the struggles but I did remove pictures of my kids for privacy sake since I am making this more public.  There are a few before photos that are pretty accurate still, with the exception of 20 pounds.  I will post updates and pictures on here weekly and write as often as I can……mainly because it is a good form of therapy for me.

So this is me moving forward…..
