Week One

The first week of "Operation Healthier Me" went very well. I lost 4lbs and feel I could or should have lost more, but things kind of fell apart on the weekend.

Friday, a girlfriend came for lunch and brought Strawberries. Strawberries alone were perfect, but she added some homemade chocolate crepes and Devon custard to the mix. Yikes! Add to that a dinner at "Swiss Chalet" (with salad instead of fries) and Friday was out the window. Saturday got off to a great start, but took a small nosedive when we ordered pizza for dinner. I like my pizza vegeterian with half the cheese, but still, three pieces later and I was feeling badly. Sunday was pretty good, but I think I will be back on track today for sure.

As for my excercise, I haven't lived up to my expectations. I managed two walks (each an hour in legnth) in the freezing North wind. It looked so beautiful out with the sun shining, but the wind just about killed us. And I didn't manage the bike at all. So this week, I hope to up my excercise. I have to get past the cold in the basement to actually get on the bike, then I will be home free. Once you start riding you warm up, right??

All in all I feel this was a good start, and hope to improve this week and see the numbers continue to fall. I am aiming for a healthy loss of 2-3 lbs each week, but was hoping for a good kick start from the first week. I feel better already, just adding in all the good fruit and salads again.

FOUR pounds?? How the hell did you do that? I did my first two walk/jog sessions and somehow I gaines 2 pounds. I am gonna try to not make it about the weight, but more how I feel.

Do you think a weekend of wine and junk food helped me at all?

Yeah What Nancy said?

I haven't goneout and joined curves yet. Nathan witht he "Runs" has not helped. Although I stocked up on helathy food for the house and NO Chips. It was a good start.

Damn this slow metablosim. I want to focus on how I look in the mirror, Toned instead of flabby not the number on the scale.
