Today was the first day back to work and if that alone wasn't rough enough - I had a mental fart and signed up for the January wellness challenge.
What Was I Thinking ??? I must have been distracted by the discomfort of having to wear real, presentable clothes for the first day in 2 weeks. Oh, how I missed my jeans and baggy sweater this morning.
All the chips, pretzels etc are gone from the house. (I miss them already) I went to the grocery store after supper and picked up some . . . . . "healthy food". Gosh that was hard to say. I didn't even walk down the fun aisle. You know that magical aisle where all the chips and cookies live. (sigh)
Tomorrow morning this will be breakfast (plus a coffee which has zero calories)
I also strapped on the pedometer as soon as I got to work. I'm going to keep a log of steps each day.
I also began tracking my food/calories all day. I did it in both Weight Watchers on-line with the point system and also in Livestrong.com by calories. I'll continue with both for a few days to see which system I like the best. (So far WW is winning because it says I still have 3 points left whereas stupid Livestrong says I exceed my calories by 200) Pfft Whatever.
I contemplated starting a new blog to track this journey, but to be honest - - - I'm not sure how long my committment to this will last. LOL Might as well be honest.
But for now - I'm giving it a try. My goal is 10 - 15 pounds and for my arms and legs to not jiggle so much.
Wish me luck - I'm not well known for having a lot of self control :) By the way, did anyone ever notice the first 3 letters in diet - - - - D.I.E Just sayin
