Day 127

This is a picture of me at the gym tonight. My mom took it on her cell phone to show me that I don't actually look as horrible as I think I do. You know what? She's right. I don't stick out like a sore thumb. Yeah, I'm fat, and what's more, I'm probably one of (its the YMCA, so there is a very diverse group using the gym there) the larger gym users there. I am the one in the black shirt and grey sweat pants. I'm finishing up my hour of cardio for the day.

Speaking of cardio, today was cardio only and I did my full hour, I also managed to go from 2.5 to 2.6mph in the second 30 minutes. I know that seems small, but a step at a time. I'm getting there. I'm really proud of myself for going to the gym again. I feel like I'm looking forward to losing weight again as opposed to just getting through the days.

My food has been on target points wise this week, but I am neglecting veggies again. I wish I could just strike a balance naturally.

I cant tell you what I lost or gained in the days that I was only sort of with it, but I will know at the meeting this Sunday coming.

1 grilled chicken sandwich: 5
1 serving sw mustard: 2
1 baked potato w cheese: 5
1 small chili: 4
1 special k granola bar: 2
1 serving fit active crackers: 2
1 lc wedge: 1
2 fresco burritos: 12
1 side rice: 3
1 serving ice cream: 3

See? I need to get back to getting my veggies in more frequently. I wouldn't worry about it if it were an occasional occurrence.

I'm so proud of you! An hour is nothing to sniffle at, especially on the treadmill (which I find excruciatingly boring)... LOL and to go up in speed AT ALL is fabulous. Whether it be from 2.5 - 2.6 or 2-3... faster is faster and only puts you that much closer to your goals! I have to ask, did you eat at Wendy's today? The reason I ask is because after looking at what you ate I had to laugh. When I go to wendy's a chicken sandwich and chili and or a salad is what I usually get. If not than it's just a coincidence but a funny one anyway. As far as email addresses go, mine is up for everyone to see on my 'other blog' lol but you are welcome to e-mail me anytime for anything at <--- many people as me if I view myself as a sugary punkin and the answer is no. I used to have two cats, one named sugar and one named punkin and I speak spanish. The letter y in spanish means and so it was just a little trivial information that you didn't ask for and I'm forcing upon you anyway. LOL OH one more thing, you so do not stick out in that picture but I know what it feels like to THINK you stick out. I especially hate standing next to two runners when at the gym. Makes me feel pretty inadequate and then I have to remind myself that even though I may not be running, I am doing what is good for me. :) Anyhoo, this 'comment' novel is long enough. Keep in touch.

I love that you posted that picture! You're not huge, and you don't stick out! You are my hero for regularly doing one hour of cardio. I'm glad you're back! I have an award for you, too. :)
