Just wanted to share a snippet of my day.
I went to the store today because I needed some Sprite (yes I know... but one thing at a time). While there, I realized I was out of things to munch on in the house (again, I KNOW). So, I was perusing the chips, cookies, cakes... when I decided NO. So what did I end up buying? Saltine Crackers. Great for munching, and not all that tasty, so I wont eat more than a few at a time. Perfect portion control.
I'm sharing this because I usually would tell myself that trying to lose weight is pointless because I'll never do it, and talk myself into getting something bad for me.
But this time, I didn't cave.

Ok, so my enemy Laziness will not beat me this time!
And so, I've created a way to make myself accountable. I've created a blog that addresses the two main reasons that I don't exercise: Laziness and boredom. If I get bored, I get lazy. That simple.
So, this blog (Mix N Move - mixnmove.blogspot.com/ ) Is my way to keep track of what I do, PLAN AHEAD, and create new workouts for myself by rotating, changing, and altering moves.
Here's to staying interested!

So, in my effort to stay committed to losing weight, I am really going to try what UKWOMAN suggested on my last post, I'm taking this one day at a time. I didn't exercise today and I did eat some fast food (first time in a long time) but I also:
*Researched nutrition and what I need to be healthy. I don't know why but nutrition baffles me. I mean I know I need to eat fruits and veggies, but when you throw in types of fat, vitamins, minerals, portion servings, good carbs/bad carbs, when to eat what etc... I just get so upset I... well I want to eat bad stuff. Any help to simplify this?
*logged into sparkpeople. This may seem simple, but forgetting to log in is usually the start of me falling off the wagon.
Here's to doing it again tomorrow and adding some exercise.

I know I gotta do it.
I know how to do it.
So what the heck is keeping me from doing it?
Oh. That's right. Laziness. I get going. I go for about a week. And then WHAM! Right back to sabotaging my new healthy lifestyle.
But it isn't just diet and nutrition. It's everything in my life. I. Have. No. Follow. Through. And now that I realize it, I'm working on it. I've GOT to work on it. I have got to take control of ME.

My life has been a whirlwind since my last post. My world has been turned upside down, and at first it seemed horrible, but things have actually turned out for the better. A big stress in my life, has almost been erased, not totally, but to the point that I'm not worrying every second. I feel as if a weight has been taken off me, and suddenly I can stand tall, and yes, even smile. Even my co-workers have noticed a change in my attitude. They say I suddenly seem happy. And for the most part I am. There are still a few hurdles left for me to be completely happy and content (obviously losing weight is one of them) with my life, but instead of worrying that those hurdles will just trip me up again, I feel that anything is possible and I know that....
...I can do this!!!!
