Change is never easy not to mention starting over! But I am woman enough to admit that I MESSED UP! The good thing is that I am moving forward. I may not be where I want to be just yet but I know I will get there.
I have had so many cups of coffee trying to get my fixes in before I switch over to green tea. I have a feeling I am still going to squeak in cups of coffee here and there but at least I drink them straight & I know I will have to make sure that I also get my 5 cups of green tea in. I know that green tea has caffeine in it too but there is not as much. I'm not too worried about the caffeine content (yet) I just know I am going to miss the beautiful aroma every morning that coffee gives off. I wonder if they make a coffee scented candle? I could deal with that lol. I am hoping I will be able to do both coffee and green tea. We will see! I have done it once before and I can do it again. That is what my blog is for, to hold me responsible! This blog is a big part of what keeps me going. You know I'm on the right path when I am posting often! I am just glad my only battle right now is over coffee/tea. I have already made my mind up about exercising and eating better. No ifs, ands or buts about it!
I need to get my basement in order. I think that's what I am going to do today. It's a mess! We have been using it for storage and all my equipment is dusty! I want to make it a happy place & not one that I am going to dread walking into. We moved my elliptical/recumbent bike down there some time ago so that's no longer in the living room. I have my own little gym going with adjustable Bowflex dumbbell weights, a weight bench, a treadmill and a recumbent bike/elliptical! Once I get it de-cluttered I should charge admission, LOL jk. It's nice to have options! It's going to make my workouts go by faster when I can switch things up. Now I just need to get a TV down there/surround sound and i'll be set! I wish I would have never sold my Ab Lounger and Gazelle years ago. I would have had a pretty nice set up then! But I'm pretty sure the Gazelle kind of does the same thing as my elliptical, right?
Who wants to start with me? I don't mean come over every day but maybe if you are reading this and want to lose weight too, we can do it together by starting Monday! I am not going to go grocery shopping until this Sunday so it looks like Monday will be the day I start the steps I listed in Entry 321: Back to the basics...
