<-- This totally fits me!!! I suck at exercising but I do it anyway. You’re looking at a girl who sprained her ankle in middle school just by casually walking down a hallway and falling face first for no reason. I swear gravity hates me!! BUT I have to give myself kudos because I have only fallen once through this process and have yet to get a charlie horse or pull a muscle! Now; just wait… Now that I said that I will probably get one lol.
Michael and I took a walk today with our dog Silver and Nibbler (our 2 labs). They are very spoiled but we don’t take them for walks so they were horrible. Instead of focusing on getting a good walk work-out in; the whole trip turned into a “what would Cesar Millan do” session LOL. Little by little if we keep it up they will get better. I can already see improvements in Nibbler. I got her to walk great! Silver on the other hand is so sassy! We walked about a mile and a half.
Just a little while ago I worked out in the basement for 30 minutes. I was just going to call our walk today my exercise but at this point I feel I need to start putting that little extra in to each day. I have gotten a little lax lately with my strictness.
I went to the grocery store finally! I got a lot of fresh food. No frozen stuff. I got lots of veggies, fruit, eggs, skim milk for my wheaties and a 3 pack of boneless skinless chicken breasts. Oh and I also got some I can’t believe it’s not butter; the light kind for when I use a sliver here and then. I wanted to get fresh spinach but it all expired soon and there was no way I could go through the whole bag in such a small amount of time.
I can’t wait until next summer when I can get serious about a garden. I was too late into this summer when I wanted to get started. It would feel great to harvest my own food and almost completely live off my land!
I feel pretty safe now that I can say that I am pretty close if not there yet to the middle of my journey! As of Friday I was 2 pounds away from the 50 pound mark. I didn’t weigh myself today and I am going to wait to see what I weigh on this coming Friday. I can’t believe I’m half way to losing 100 pounds. I never thought I’d see the day. I am going to go places; I can just feel it.
My name is Marilyn and I am 27 years old. I have been overweight for most of my life and on May 1st, 2012 I weighed in at 338 pounds. This blog is about my weight-loss journey.
