This is a good motto for me today because I think I actually did it. I think I just might have found my inner strength. When my alarm went off this morning and instead of hitting snooze (10 times) I told myself that "no one else to going to run the fat off" and I got up and did a workout. I started with workout #2 and then finished with #3. I felt really good during #2 and it seemed to fly by, but I think that was more due to the fact that during the walking / catch my breath part I was searching Foxtel for shows to record and boy did I find a blast from the past.........
|The treadmill isn't the only thing that causes me to catch my breath :)|
After finding my 21 Jump Street gem to record I finally found what I was actually looking for - The Biggest Loser on channel 10, USA series and not sure what season, but I haven't seen it yet. It was on a few weeks ago on a Sunday, but the past few weeks something else like the racing has been on and those things take allllllll day. Anyhooo, I have found it again and am excited - easy to please I guess.
The second half of my workout didn't seem to go as fast, but at least I made it and without any changes so I was really happy with that. I was about ready to fall off the treadmill at the end, but noticed that I wasn't far off the 6 kms so I just kept going till I got there. I felt good after my workout this morning. I wish I could capture the feeling in a jar and sprinkle some on me every morning I didn't feel like working out, I would be out of bed in a flash!

Not much else to report except that my computer died from old age and I was devastated because I have 15 months worth of photos on that computer waiting to go onto disc. Luckily the hubster works with a computer wizz who is going to take the hard drive and burn everything off it for us - all I want is those photos!!!
I am using my son's laptop at the moment luckily he has a spare one, what, doesn't everyone? His aunt (my sister) got him a laptop for Christmas last year for high school, but the school actually provided him with one as well so now he has 2
I lost 1.8 kilos (3.9 lb) this week which I think was due to me actually tracking for a whole week. I didn't miss a single item that went into my mouth including that delicious white chocolate Magnum ice-cream I had on movie night. I find the counting calories so much easier than the points, yes, I have left Weight Watchers again and am back to counting the calories.
The calories just make more sense to me - I know how many I am eating and I know how many I am burning. It was a good first week of counting calories and I know I can keep it up. I did it for a week so why can't I do it until I need to???? There is no reason why I can't continue counting and tracking for as long as I need to. It's not even hard, I just made it a priority.
