I sit here at 8:30 p.m. with Crest White strips on my teeth, accomplishing two feats at once: whitening my teeth and avoiding night-snacking.
Yes, it's time to get serious.
I visited a neighbor today who has lost 10 pounds and is looking to lose 10 more. His workout plan: 3-4 days per week, he hits the treadmill. He jogs two miles, walks a quarter mile, jogs 2 more, walks another quarter, and then jogs a final mile. This takes him one hour.
What commitment. One hour a day, 3-4 times per week. He's doing great! And he looks so happy. He's in the middle of his journey, and he's seeing success.
I'd like to get back there.
So here's what I did today that was hard work:
1. Stayed within calorie ranges. What helped was the BIG salad I had for lunch -- so big I had to eat it in two sittings.
2. Walked 2 miles on the treadmill. Must do more of this!
3. Avoided eating after 8:00. Must continue to stay on target once I sign off of SparkPeople tonight. No cheating!
4. Drank water.
5. Logged onto SparkPeople -- so easy, yet I have not been doing it.
Tomorrow: More success ahead.
