It has been a long couple of weeks. I have been without computer and internet for more than 10 days. I have been on facebook but had to rely strictly on my smartphone. To say that I have been miserable has been an understatement. It seemed that I lost the computer and internet at the same time.
I had my personal laptop at a home and it made this crackling sound and smoke came out of the keyboard. Since I am getting a divorce I needed to get my home internet put into my own name and Suddenlink said it had to be turned off out of my husband’s name for 5 days before they could even take the request to get it put into my name. Their five days turned into 10 days. Ugh!!!
During this time Isaiah had his first birthday party and I have a million and one pictures to share. I am working out daily and sharing my running and zumba progress on Facebook. I am probably driving everyone crazy but I hope it inspires others to get out and start living their lives.
I am really enjoying working out and planning my meals and getting healthier daily. I like being in control of my own destiny. There are certain things in life that you have no control over. Why not fight back and make your life even better by being healthy? You can do this. We can do this together.
One night while I was jogging at the local high school I was talking with a woman from my Zumba class. She works at Curves as a coach and she told me one reason that I am not losing as much weight as I should be considering how often I am working out is that I am not eating enough calories. I have decided to up my calories and see if this helps me to lose again.
Yesterday after work I went to Krogers and bought the following veggies to up my calories. I plan to be smart about this. I am not adding junk calories and carbs to my meals. I am going to put healthy food options into my body. I bought the following veggies to enjoy this week.
When I was looking at the pictures that my daughter took of me at Isaiah’s birthday party it saddened me because I can see such a drastic difference from my this time last year. I only need to lose 10 pounds but on my frame and height it really shows as more. During the holidays when I knew that my marriage was ending and the winter months of trying to figure out how after 21 years I would be single and afford to live on my own I ate comfort food and worked many long hours. I gained the weight and had very little exercise. I am taking control of this and fixing this problem.
Who else wants to join me and take a pledge to eat healthy and exercise daily? I am using Map My Fitness both on my phone and on my computer to monitor how often I am working out and how many calories and carbs I am eating. I would be so happy if I could get at least ten people to say that they will do it with me. We can join forces and talk about it here and on facebook. Who is with me?
