Slow & Steady

So going slow in the process of losing this weight,I am feeling really good this time around. I have lost 3 pounds already, and I am chugging along each and every day, with the exception of the days that I rest.  I feel stronger, and I am getting a lot more sleep, I am also breathing better with all this, I am now able to walk up the stairs at my apartment with out having to stop along the way to catch a breath.  I am loving walking further, and hitting up the apartment gym.  I am going to be fit this year.  I have also cut my sugar and fat intake.  So here’s to getting Summer ready, and beyond.

Starting over again

So I have been exercising the past five days.  I have been in a downward spiral for a very long time emotionally and physically, so I have begun the process of climbing out of my pit.  I have not liked what I have been seeing in myself, and I know if I continue the way I am going, nothing good will come of it.

So I begin again, may this beginning bring prosperous change inside and out.

The hardest thing is the first step…

But I have made that first step, today, me and my mom started working out again.  We went to the gym here at my apartments, hers will be ready for use Saturday, so we will alternate between both apartment gyms.  The hardest part was the first step.  Today I took that step.  I have been out of the exercising game for over a year, and in that year, I have gained so much weight, that I can feel it inside.  Especially since I have asthma, I need to do a lot better by myself, so I am taking that step, I know that it is going to be a challenge, but I am going to do the best that I can with this.  It does not help that I have a job that requires me to sit most of the day, but never the less, I am not going to make that an excuse.  So this process will be on going, and I will definitely follow up on how things in this weight loss and more healthy lifestyle goes.

So this year architects of air is back at the long center with Pentalum, and I am all excited about going, I will be going Sunday.  I will take photos, and post them, so stay tuned.  Last year, I went for the first time, and I had so much fun, so this year, I am happy to see them return.

So let this be the start of something good, really good.


This must be magic!

Oh my feet!, my feet, they feel so good, these shoes with the memory foam must be magic I say!  I have just been on my feet walking home from the bus stop, now I have walked all the way down to the library here, and I say, my feet feel so good.  What is this magic, I don’t understand it all, but I am going to walk till I have walked all the memory out of these shoes, and then I am going to purchase another pair, oh my, oh my, this is wonderful!

Just wanted to convey how awesome these sketchers are.  That is all my loyal, now you can return back to your regularly scheduled programs.  Toodles!

Day 195:

Today I am…  Getting back on the wagon.  The exercise wagon that is.  I have not been doing my exercises, and when I was ill, I stopped altogether, I have been feeling bloated and just a plain wreck of things.  So today I start over once again.  Do I feel shame?  Well a little for the fact that I know I should have been doing something more, but just could not pull myself together to get it done.  With that being said though, I am not going to give up, no.  I am going to keep on keeping on this, until I achieve results.  I have been struggling with getting this under control, as well as my emotional state of being.  Not all days are bright and sunny, but I try, I try.

Today is the start of another work week.  I know I need to slow down and pace myself.  I got a good assessment last week, which gives me a little more pay, still not where I want to be, but sure not where I used to be.  And on that note my friends and loyal reader’s I shall be heading off to get ready for my working week.  Keep it safe, fun, and whatever you do or do not do today, enjoy.

Today I am…  Getting back on the wagon.

Day 99:

Today I am…  Taking a look.  Yes, I am in my closet and taking a look at the drabby clothing I have, either outgrown, or they just do not fit right.  I haven’t been shopping for clothing in a couple of years, so I am thinking that it is about time I lay down some money and pick up a few new threads.  I do not want to go over board, because I am just getting back into my walking routine, and well that changes my body, so I think that I will wait a few more weeks, then go shopping bit by bit, and all these other clothing…  I will just donate to good will.  Indeed, indeed.

Today I am…  Taking a look.

Day 21:

Today I am…  Delighted.  That they have finally put in a treadmill and an elliptical machine in the exercise room here at the apartments.  Now with it being winter, I really do not have much of an excuse to do some indoor walking, and working out.  I have been lifting weights already, but you know there is so much more to do, or at least a variety of things that I can do, that will benefit me in the long run.  I used to go to the exercise room during the summer, in the mornings before daylight broke, but stopped going, you know how that start, stop, start again goes.  Now I am starting again, that is what matters to me, and that I push myself to go further.    I am pretty sure that once I really get moving along, that the pains that I have been having will lessen and I know I will start to feel a lot better mentally.

Today I am…  Delighted

Day 11:

Today I am…  Choosing.  I am choosing to get myself back on track, I am choosing to start exercising and eating less junk, I am choosing to start over again, to put in the hard, very hard work.  I have failed many times, starting and stopping, starting and getting off track, starting and giving in.  Once again I am starting, that is the hardest steps to take those first steps forward in anything you do, one step begets many and in turn you are on your way, well my friends and reader’s I am on my way once again.

Today I am…  Choosing.
