Had the husband take pics of me in workout gear…not a pretty sight. Talk about motivation. Even though it scares the bejesus out of me, this is all about putting it all out there, the good and the bad. So here is the ugly truth which is going to turn into an ugly memory:
I started at 2.5 miles on the new exercise bike and am up to 5 last pm, with about ten min of hand weights doing different things at the end. And guess what? I am not terribly sore this AM from it.
As I told a friend last PM, I am sick of feeling this way: fat and frumpy and old. I can do this, and keep these changes in my life. It is time to take control and take over.
I tried the new Dr Pepper Ten diet soda, very decent and drinkable. Passed up several things at the store this weekend including regular soda, cookie dough, all my usual comfort foods. I bought salad fixings instead.
I am not totally denying myself stuff though, had a small dish of ice cream last pm with the kids. Just a little annoy satisfied me.
Small changes. I can do it!
