So I woke up this morning think, crap, did I really just post a picture of my weight on-line or was it all a dream? In a weird way, I am very thankful it wasn’t which may be hard for some to understand so let me try explaining. As much as I’d love to say that I set goals and regularly reach them, I don’t; it sadly quite rare. But if I have a dead-line that is put forth by someone else, I almost always met it on time. I recently graduated from college with an undergraduate degree and did quite well in school, because I had goals set up by professors or the university itself. So this is my bizarre experiment of setting a goal that anyone and everyone can see and being forced to hold myself accountable.
I began with a walk near my park today when I awoke and walked the full circumference of the park 3 times. I genuinely do not understand how people can go for a walk/run without loud music! This week’s soundtrack of exercise will be set to The Dresden Dolls Yes, Virginia, an amazing album that everyone should listen to! I then came home and worked with weights and did some sit ups, trying to slowly train my flab to tighten up. Yeah, this is going to be a long road!
Yeah I grabbed the first socks out of my drawer and was delighted to see which ones the were. I suddenly don't believe in coincidences now!
Food for the day: I ate a lovely really late breakfast of a small bowl honey nut cheerios with fat free milk and a cup of coffee. Because I ate a really late breakfast, I decided to eat a larger snack: a couple of diced up carrots, a small amount of crackers and all natural applesauce with a dash of cinnamon (I truly think cinnamon makes almost everything better!) Dinner consisted of leftovers from last night and since I didn’t have lunch, I did eat a little more than I should have. I had rice cooked with salsa, fresh cut onions and peppers and a taco salad. I also have had a large Christmas cookie for dessert. It’s all about being honest folks. I’m not proud of the cookie, however there is no point in lying; what good would that do? I also have been drinking my weight in water.
