After a long hiatus from tracking, and eating well as well as exercising, I am back. I had a great physical last month. Deep down inside, I was hoping she would tell me something that would help to jump start my motivation to do this again, but she didn't. Blood pressure was good (as usual), cholesterol excellent (as usual), sugars very good (as usual).....EVERYTHING WAS NORMAL!
She didn't bring up the issue of weight, I did. I told her, as if she didn't know, that I REGAINED all 48 of the pounds that i'd lost and that I was trying to get back on track. She told me that while I am healthy, I know what to do. I did it once, I can do it again.
So today is a new day....new month! I am off this week from work as it's my daughter's first week of kindergarten and we have so many activities with the school this week. This is my perfect opportunity to get going again.
Before, I lost my weight using weight watchers. While I LOVE weight watchers, it's expensive (monthly/weekly fees.) It's also time consuming (weighing, tracking foods.)
I have decided that I am going to try something different. I'll still have to weigh and track, but I think I need something different. So I have chosen to use the Lose It app for iPhone. In addition, for workout motivation, I have the Polar Ft7 Heart Rate Monitor.
So this morning, I got up and cooked breakfast. For hubby and daughter, I fixed pancakes, eggs and bacon (their request). For myself, I had a spinach, tomato and cheese egg white omelet with two slices of low sodium bacon. I also drank a cup of herbal detox tea as well as water.
And it was delicious! Now I have to plan the rest of the day....including exercise! I've got this!
