As I write this, my stomach is growling. But, it's ok. I'm making a lifestyle change. At least, that's what I tell myself every time it growls at me. What type of lifestyle change, do you ask? Well...Fatty McFat here signed up for Weight Watchers. I did it back in 2001 and lost 40 pounds in about 4 months. I could stand to do that again (plus some). The good thing is - this time two of my friends are going with me so it will be more motivation. I'm actually looking forward to it - I just have to keep telling myself that Don Pablo is NOT my friend.
This morning my alarm went off. I had set it early so that I could get up and work out. I hit the snooze button. I just couldn't do it the first time. BUT - I laid there and said to myself "Get your fat ass out of bed and get on the treadmill." So I did. And, it actually feels good. I did a mile on the treadmill at a fast walk pace. Well - 3/4 of it was at fast walk and I jogged the last 1/4 mile. It felt GOOD when I was done. Another cool thing was that I got to watch "I LOST IT" on Discovery Health while working out. Nothing like watching people with successful weight loss stories while you're working out. Good times...
I ran to the grocery and overhauled our fridge once again. Another positive is that Scott is on board with me. We counted out our points last night and packed our lunches. We've got dinner planned and I'm pretty happy about it. He also signed up for Tae Kwon Do as his workout. That's his gig - mine is treadmill and sweating with Richard Simmons. I'm really looking forward to our lifestyle change together. The last time I did weight watchers, Scott would eat regularly, so I'd sit with my chicken and he'd be having a Big Mac. Not this time. I'm so glad that he's in it with me.
Well...back to work. The workout this morning put me on an adrenaline rush and I have a million things I want to get done. I hope that by next week, I'm reporting a weight loss in my Tuesday blog entry!
