Entry 326: Staying determined
<-- I went for a walk earlier with a friend. You can't really tell in the bottom picture but I'm eating an apple lol. Super sour! There were apple trees all along the trail with wild raspberries. It was like a fruit buffet!
I woke up and had my lemon water first thing. I then made myself a cup of green tea and had 2 eggs fried with my olive oil spray w/ wheat toast. For lunch I had one of my Healthy Choice meals and for dinner I am going to have a lean cuisine after I post this. I am currently on my 4th cup of green tea and have half way to go on my water jug. Earlier I had a bad craving! I wasn't sure for what but I know I wanted something junky. I did not fall into temptation and I'm proud of myself! I also didn't feel like going for a walk today but I sucked it up. I realized if I were to cheat or not exercise, the only one I am going to hurt is myself! Now why would I want to go and do that? I forgot how hard it can be to resist junk food when I really want it. Especially with this being only day 2 of being back on track. These days are going to be the hardest but I know I can do it. I just want to get through this first week with no bumps. If I can make it 1 week back on my strict diet/exercise plan I know it will only get easier from there on out. Sometimes the easiest things for us to do are the hardest to accomplish. Consistence is key for me at this point!
This Thursday is when I start my new job! I know I'm going to love it. I'm more excited than nervous. Its a full time position. I'm thinking I will probably go with eating a banana before I go in and make my green tea all at once and take it with me. I don't know, I guess I will figure it out when the time comes! I love the hours too; they work out perfect for us. Also not to mention the routine is really going to help me out BIG time with my weight-loss & eating schedule consistancy :-D
Am I ever feeling sore! I walked about 5 miles yesterday and I figure I walked about 3 today. I'm feeling it in my shins and my neck has been sore but I think that's just from being on the computer more often since we have internet again lol.
Life is good & the future is bright!

I meant to ask earlier...where do you live? I'm from Albuquerque, New Mexico. I wish I could post a picture for you so you could put a face to who's blowing up your blog everyday! Ha ha.
