I wallowed, and then I decided I had had enough wallowing and decided to take action. Maybe wallowing and letting everyone know where I was at, was exactly what I needed. Monday I decided to do 4 things, to start out, 1) keep a food journal and start counting my calorie intake, 2) drink at least 80 ounces of water each day, 3) take a walk at least once during my lunch hour this week, and 4) avoid all candy, cakes, cookies and those sorts of things for one month.
So far so good. I’m going to baby step, thank you Bob, my way to weight loss. And fortunately on Monday, I wouldn’t say this out loud around my office, the trial I was going to have to be away from home for a month for has been cancelled, at least the portion they needed me for, and so thus I don’t have to go away from home for a month, and thus I can start my exercise regime! I’m very excited, but I’m also going to go into this slowly, so I won’t actually start the exercising possibly for a week or so.
Right now I need to concentrate on the food journal, staying away from candy, and drinking my water. These are important steps for me to take, and part of equation I was missing last time I started excercising which just lead me to being more depressed because I wasn’t losing any weight after 8 weeks.
So I won’t bore you any more, but wallowing helped and thank you for all your advice.
No I think I’ll go and play with the boys and work on my sleeve to Gathering Intentions. Again, thanks for letting me wallow, it was exactly what I need. Hopefully I can keep this new energy and get myself healthy.
