Currently the scale is saying 250.4 - entirely too much! I do not like this number and it must come down. The last few weeks the walks have been cancelled due to weather, and we've only averaged 1 walk a week instead of the 3 we're shooting for. Of course, next week is my vacation, so 1 walk may be all I get in - unless I hit the gym at the hotel. And while I might want to do that, it's not very likely. *sigh*

I've been trying to up my water intake, decrease my soda intake, and make healthier choices. Not really a solid plan, more of a gentle nudge. And that may have to be enough for this week. Solid plans can start after we're back home and cooking for ourselves again. This week I did have a win one day when I only drank 12 oz. soda instead of my usual 40-60. Yes, I'm a Coke fiend.

July 7, 2010

Today is my anniversary and a bit more than halfway through the year. Lately I've been thinking about things that are going on in my life, what I'm happy with, and what I'm not happy with - and I've decided I'm tired of being fat and out of shape.

Next year I'll have been married 10 years, it'll be my 20th high school reunion, and there's so many things I want to do before that. I want to be thin and fit again - re-discover the svelte-ness I took for granted 2 decades ago. Also, I want to finish a triathlon... my mother-in-law did the Danskin Tri this year, and some friends of mine have been encouraging me to do it as well.

I have been walking with a friend 3 times a week for a while now. We have a 2 mile loop through our neighborhood that takes us about 40 minutes, but I really need to step up my game.

I'm off today, due to a family funeral - we just got back into town and have one more day off before back to work, so today will be my planning and prep day. There needs to be a grocery run today as well as laundry and cleaning, and tonight, a relaxing dinner out with my gorgeous hubby. Then tomorrow, back to the grind.
