Tough Monday

I did my walking today and did one leg. I'm glad to have done it this a.m. as it poured all day. I know ...three days in and already I didn't accomplish what I said I would attempt to do. I know I failed and I'll try back again tomorrow to set out three times:)
My eating was really off and I'm really screwed up in that department. I need to start really taking a hard look at what I am doing and my reactions in general.
I have to do the two together to become successful. So I need to remember this:

exercise :20 minutes - 10 minutes in one direction then turned around and walked back.
eating: bad news.\better time tomorrow!

Today was a busy day! I got up and went out for a walk. The amazing thing about that is that I have been literally THINKING about this for a looooong time. But I have been too lazy to do it. Yep, lazy , that is the bottom line. After my 20 min walk I hung out with my husband and son, then we took a long ride to my parents for dinner. Later, after we arrived and got in a few minutes of visiting I went with my dad to Stop and Shop to get some groceries for dinner. I did another 20 minute walk in the shopping center while he did the grocery shopping. I see a definite difference when walking on cement sidewalks VS walking on the road.
I didn't try to attempt any running, I figured if I am walking daily its best to alternate days that I TRY to run/jog.
The eating was tough but I am going to be nice to myself and say that I made alot of good veggie choices.

its a lovely arrangement if I do say so myself:!
  We had a very nice arrangement of veggies to nosh on. Although there was plenty of chips around as well.
Tonight, out walking the dog. Here's the duck pond on the golf course around the block.
Later when we got home I took the dog for a walk. I am really glad that I got the three walking sessions in rather than procrastinating and giving in to having just done the first walk. I can talk myself out of ANYTHING!

Going to the Super Bowl!
I came home from walking the dog to find out that the Giants were hanging on to win the game tonight! Well they did it and are going to the Superbowl. It's great to get to jump around and scream! GO GIANTS!
Almost midnight here and must sleep -_-

TODAY 1 > 20 minutes - 10 minutes in one direction , then turned around and 10 minutes back home
TODAY 2> 20 minutes - walking through shopping center. back and forth:))
TODAY 3> 15 minutes - walking the dog, he a good dog but lots of stop and go:)   Did get him to walk for a solid 7 minutes without stopping!

Today is the first day of the rest of your days....yup

OK I'm doing it. I have started the blog. I walked ...and THAT is the complete and entire plan. I don't know what the hell I am doing frankly. All I know is that I want to get back to running. The problem? I'm just a bit over 300 lbs and I want to run again so badly. I am pretty much down on myself due to my current situaion. It feels current.. but its actually been approx. 10 years that I'm in over my head with this weight issue.

My main problem is that I am completely addicted to food. I have tried more than my share of diets to no avail. I keep thinking that there's got to be an easy way. But I am slowly, veeeerrry slowly, starting to realize that THAT is a pipe dream. Unfortunately its going to take some hard work. Oh shit, I hate hard work, LOL! 

So I got an app called Couch to 5K. And you know what, even the very beginning of their training is too much for me. They want you to start at a much faster pace than I can do now. So I'm going step back a bit and do the following:
Walk for 20 minutes - 3x a day.

It may seem like alot but I have just got to do this! I made my decision this afternoon. After a lounging day, in from the snow and cold outside. Stuffing whatever down my face. I was painting and thinking about how I just started meditating. Been doing real well about 15 minutes every morning. Also started to think about losing weight- as I ALWAYS do.  Not sure what it was but I said to myself, just get out and go take a walk, start tonight!
And so I did.

So I'm not doing anything eating-wise right this second because that is a MASSIVE undertaking and I have got to get my exercise down for now. But I just might change my thoughts on this in the coming days..So here goes, please, please,please wish me luck!

TODAY > 20 minutes - 10 minutes in one direction , then turned around and 10 minutes back home ( i managed a 15 second jog in the second half) HEY you gotta start somewhere!
