I know you are probably shocked....2 posts in 3 days. I am a bit amazed myself. I can say that I feel like I am back in the weight loss zone that I was in so well that first year when I lost all my weight. Yay!
OK....so how is it going? I went into work on tues feeling all great. I had a plan! I had all my food prepared and points counted out. I am sitting there enjoying my mid shift shack and in rolls this HUGE chocolate cake for one of my favorite docs (Happy birthday Hartwell!) I guess this is a good time to mention that I have a few trigger foods. Salt is mostly what I am weak for....esp chips. My second loves are cookies and cake. Also on the creak room table was mounds of halloween candy. I combined them all in one grocery sack. I would be telling a lie if I said I was not tempted. I am happy to say though that I did not give in to temptation.
After we worked a particularly busy 12 hour shift in the ER Angela and I kept to our commitment of walking. We walked 2.5 miles which I was happy with as day #1 exercising and it was midnight and we had our butts kicked at work already.
Today I did well also. I bought a membership to 24 hour fitness today at Costco. I have a gym membership to the nice snooty gym by my house but quite franky....it is not open a lot of the time when I would use it.....they close at 11. So I did something that is completely wastful and now have memberships to 2 gyms. If I am not going to my closer gym much within a month then I will let that membership go. BUt with 24 hour fitness we can go after work....and go we did. I ran 1.8 of 2.0 miles. It sucked. It was slow. But I did it. I also did some other elliptical like machine Angela likes. I am still undecided on that but as much as it sucked...it also felt really great to be running again. I cant wait to hit the trails again!
Hope all is well!
