View CECILY55's food & exercise for this day
Did my pushups first thing this morning. A few more weeks and this is apt to become a full-day activity!
Today I need to call Dr. G about a handicapped permit for the Friday after surgery--walking to/from St. Lukes is apt to be a real trial w/o it. And parking at St. Lukes would be worse--I just as well walk! I also need to move my hair appointment on Thursday--I don't think I'm going to feel like getting my hair done that day.
I just finished breakfast and it was mighty tasty! But the omelet stuck like crazy to the pan--could this be a portent of the day to come? In a couple of minutes I need to start getting ready for the day--bath, hair, face, coffee, car, drive, all that stuff.
I am a little annoyed with my scale--the weight just doesn't seem to be dropping!! Of course it's the scale's fault--couldn't be mine. I did not eat well for several days in a row and and I have decided this is now a thing of the past. If I am going to get where I want to be, I have to show a little maturity and discipline--random, thoughtless eating is no longer going to be a part of my behavior vocabulary. I CAN eat a tortilla chip, 5 little pretzels, 10 pieces of popcorn and STOP--I don't need to eat the whole bowl and I won't. Next Friday night and Saturday morning is a planned binge--gain some pounds of scale weight for the Gold's gym weigh-in--but that's it. The new life-style starts now!
I think Charlie's right--anyone can lose weight and get fit if they want to. Of course it's easy for him to say--he's at about 8% body fat. I just don't think I've wanted to bad enough. Well, I want to now--I just need to get my calories and exercise dialed in. I know I'm eating enough right now--I've put on some muscle in my arms and shoulders. If I start doing more back and chest, I'll put muscle on there, too. I don't want my scale weight to stay between 160-165 for right now--I can trim that next month.
Day after the day after tomorrow and I get my knee fixed. I won't say I'm looking forward to it--that would be wrong. But I'm sure tired of the ache and swelling--it's interfering with my fun. I need to get to work on this physical fitness stuff.
It's 8 p.m. and almost bed time. I am doing better at getting to ged early so I can get up early and do my morning thing and get to work almost on time. I'm still have a little problem getting to sleep, but I'm starting to get it together on this. I need to start working out harder after work--that should help a bunch. Right now it's a little hard with my knee, but I am going to give it a try tomorrow: do some weights and then 45-60 minutes on the elliptical.
