Went to work today, was supposed to work 5 hours 45 mins and come home at 2. They asked me to stay over, which means I get a lunch. Problem is, I did not pack a lunch. I ended up eating at Subway. Way too much. 12 inch spicy italian on wheat. SO that means maybe just a yogurt for supper tonight.
I got in over 10,000 steps at work which was great. I did not make it out of bed early this morning. We had a storm come thru at 2am and made the electric flicker and the lights all come on in the bedroom waking us up. After that I just dozed off and on and not very deeply. The plan was to get up at 5:30. Didn't happen.
But I came home tonight and I did walk my 1.5 miles. Thats my goal for every day this week. Next week I might increase it by a quarter mile, probably every other day, then more the next week until I eventually get up to a 5K which is 3.somethin somethin miles. lol

Even though the scale says I gained a pound-pound and a half Im not gonna stress it, my clothes feel looser than ever. My t-shirts are starting to not gather at my hips but keep on going.
I know that when I came home from work today I walked a mile on my treadmill, granted a long boring mile but it was still a mile, in 25 minutes. My endurance is growing, I am getting stronger. Last night I walked a mile and a half at one time, to reach my 10,000 steps a day, today I have in almost 15,000. I might get on the treadmill yet again...who knows? :)
I want to see 312 or lower by Friday but I am realistic enough to know what I want and what I get are 2 different things. What I do know is this...if I dont work for it I wont get it. SO, how bad do I want it?
Bad enough to get on the treadmill again.

I knew when I got out of bed today it wasn't going to be pretty. For one thing, I got up about 8. That's late for me. For another, my husband was up first and messing in the computer/exercise room so I just went right for the shower as I knew he wanted to go look at phones today.
So no exercise this morning, and then I made him stop at the Dollar store and I went in to get a Mountain Dew. I havent had one in weeks. I have had tea and diet soda, very rarely. I just dont know what came over me.
Well I bought potato chips too. UGGG Confession time. We had lunch at Wendy's where I had a Jr cheeseburger deluxe, chicken nuggets and half a large Frosty. After Breakfast, Lunch and a none existent dinner I am about 300 calories over for the day. We are talking in the 2000 range.
We went and got new phones. This is the first time I have had a smart phone believe it or not. The APPS OMG! lol I am in overload. I already have fitbit and sparkpeople loaded. It also has a heart rate monitor, which I then had to try out. Which lead to walking over 2.5 miles on the treadmill and 35 minutes on the bike. I am about 500 steps away from my 10,000 step/day goal. It's been tough sailing today let me tell ya.
I did not even weigh myself this morning that's how off I am today. Back to work tomorrow and more structured days all next week.
500 more steps...499...498 Got to go.

Yesterday I ended up having a pretty high calorie day for me. About 1800-2000 all told. Needless to day I did not hit 314, so I have to be content with today's 315. Today is weigh in day.
Today is the first day to try again. I have tried to remain active all morning and push myself. I have a fit bit zip that counts my steps. I think I was becoming falsely secure in steps = calorie burn. Not so much. This morning I amped it up. I did my own little circuit training. Bike, treadmill, stairs, kettlebell, jog, bike, and some weird modified jumping jack thingies. lol
I have a weird work schedule tonight, 4pm-9pm. Yay Friday night. Im off all weekend though. I hope to get in a little crafting/picking this weekend. Oh yeah, and burning this body fat DOWN! :)
Have a fantastic weekend.
