Doesn't this just sound YUMMY

Still with it

I'm sticking with the SB- it's so hot though that I don't want to eat much so I'm afraid that when I go to add back in foods it will be a step backwards.  I'm still struggling with the exercise portion.  I just have to know that when I get back into my daily routine I will start going back to the gym.  I am housesitting right now and they have an awesome treadmill BUT I have only used it once.  I need to get my rear in gear and get out of bed in the a.m. so that I can use it.  The one good thing is that I have been working at school and doing quite a bit of lifting and pushing and pulling so that has helped some.  I start Phase 2 on Monday!  Which just happens to be our first day back to school.

Phase 1 Day 2

I started the exercising today.  I decided to start out using the Phase 1 exercise plan from South Beach Supercharged.  You start out with 5 minutes of warm up walking then do 15 seconds of fast walking then 60 seconds of regular walking.  You do 8 cycles of the 15/60 and then I did 5 minutes of a cool down walk.  For right now I'm doing all of this on the elliptical although I will add the treadmill later this week.  I am signing up for a 1 mile Fun Walk  for August 2 and I don't want to be huffing and puffing after a mile.  Will be back later to record other fun stuff for the day!

Phase 1 Day 1

Today was finally day 1 of phase 1. I'm a little concerned if I'm going to be able to get two weeks of this- but I'll figure it all out. It will be a bit easier once Friday comes and it's payday and I can go grocery shopping.

Breakfast- 1/4 of leftover grilled turkey sausage
Lunch- turkey slices with cheese and jello
snack- mixed nuts (Planters sb approved)
Dinner- 3 eggs, scrambled with cheese.

I have NOT had all my water today but I have had the recommended amount of liquid. I also didn't make it up to exercise this morning. Hopefully I'll be able to get there tomorrow. I also know that I need to eat veggies but honestly I didn't have any here at home that were handy so I'll up my consumption of them tomorrow.

Starting Over

Starting something over is never easy but this time I am doing it with the help and encouragement from friends. A few friends of mine decided to a Biggest Loser competition so for the next 6 months we will weigh in every two weeks and it will be recorded. I will pay $25 and the "winner" gets the whole pot of $125. I'm excited about this and excited that I have friends along with me on the journey. Due to my cousin's wedding I am starting 100% s.b. next Monday when I return. Thanks for reading and for joining me on the journey!

Starting Over

I'm starting over on July 5. I know I need to get myself under control. I was looking at some very recent pictures and was very disgusted with myself and how I looked. So, here we go again!
