Start of a new week- Day 1 of 96 days.
Monday, June 28, 2010
Woke to a cloudy cooler day. I had my shoes in the car from yesterday so I walked at lunch. Even though it was cloudy earlier the sun popped out and it got rather warm. I think the mid-day walks will have to stop till it cools off.
Stopped by the store on the way home and stocked up on fruits. Bought fixings to make a big salad so I can take my lunch to work. I've been eating Subway 6" tuirkey breast at lunch but after 3 weeks it's gotten old. Time for a change. Bought strawberries, blackberries and apples.
Tomorrow I start D1W1 of C25K. I'm going to row Monday, Wednesday and Fridays. Tuesday & Thursday pm and Saturday I'll do C25K .
I have 96 days till my 34th class reunion. The 74, 75 & 76 classes are being combined. I do not want to go in the shape I'm in. I can do 1 of 2 things. Do something about it and go or do nothing and stay home. I know you shouldn't loose weight for other people, you need to do it for you. But this is for me. I want to go but not with arms that jiggle, abelly that rests on my knees when I sit and rolls of back fat.
I will need to spend more calories than I take in. I will have to weigh, measure and record everything I eat and exercise with purpose. No just putting in the time to get it done. Make it count. Give it 110%.. Say no and not apologize. I can do this. I will do this.
Update on momma....against my sister Red and mommas wishes they sent her home. She is on a 1600 calorie low-sodium diabetic diet. Red asked the dr about prescribing Mom potassium. He told her she didn't need that. Red (aka little sister) questioned him since momma takes 160 mgs (80 twice a day) of lasics a day. He said well in that case she does. Like he didn't even look at her chart. Why do drs practice like this? You really have to be your own advocate or you'll get shoved to the side. Not sure how this is going to work. Granny Clampett (mom) likes to diagnosis and treat herself. The male nurse checking her in when they admiited her got all over her for not doing the things she should be doing. Like it's not something she hasn't heard a 100 times.
Charging the IPOD and gathering my clothes for tomorrow.
