early morning

the alarm went off this morning at 6:30...and I was out of bed and out the door by 6:45am...on a SATURDAY, for the 2nd week in a row, to exercise....Whhaaaattt?  It's quiet out there.  I saw some of the same people.  And I liked it.  When it happened last weekend, my hubby actually said, "who are you??"  HA!  

Who am I?  Good question!  Cause the me from a month or so ago had not exercised regularly in YEARS.  Seriously, years...The me from a couple weeks ago would have surely consumed several slices of pizza and a few glasses of wine on our regular Friday night instead of just 2 slices and 1 beer.  They say it takes about 4 weeks to make a I think I am comfortable enough  now to admit...I am trying to get more healthy!

Whew, there, I said it.  Why is it so scary to put that out there?  For me...I think it is the fear of people seeing me fail cause I have so many times.  Or judging me when I indulge. Or simply just to admit that I, ahem, need to lose weight.

I have a long way to go, but with exercising and ww-ing, I think I am on the right track.  I am becoming accountable for every nibble, taste, and snack.  I am doing the Couch to 5k schedule for exercising (and surprisingly ENJOYING it). I came home today from my 45 minutes realizing that I jogged more than I walked...and I didn't die!  Something I surely couldn't have done before.  I am noticing slowly that REALLY playing with my very active boys is getting less tiring.  It is getting easier, both the exercise and the will power with food and that makes me excited.  I love ww because really nothing is off limits but you cannot have it all ALL THE TIME.

Anyway, I am proud of me so far and sometimes it just feels good to say out loud.  So don't judge me if I taste a piece of chocolate or eat some french fries...I will make up for it later.  And hopefully you will see a smaller and healthier me over the next few months! :)

Happy Saturday!!

  3. can do it Lisa! It is certainly a life style. Waking up early every morning is my deal since I have no time once I get home, but so worth it. I so agree I may induldge in that cheesecake or have one 2 many pieces of pizza but I will make up for it for sure. Good luck my friend.
