2.8lbs off this week

Yay, I'm in a new decade. the 220's (228.2 to exact)...been a LONG LONG LONG time since I've see this number! It's happy dance time, get up and wiggle with me! bah bah badoomp, bah bah badoomp!

Ok, nuff dancin'

Just a normal week. What have I learned this week...If I eat lunch at noon, by the time I head home for dinner I'm starvin' marvin and it's real easy to tempt myself with junk food. I am good, so far, at resisting the temptation...but I think I'll have a snack before I leave work if I have errands to run after work...that's just a good plan.
I learned that I don't have to try to get more than 50 mins of moderate exercise a day or 30 mins of high intensity and that I can break them up into shorter spurts that add up to that number. I can DO that. I've been lazy...mostly because the smoke has been bad, but the smoke is about gone now, and so it's time to move again and breathe harder. I'm thinking I gotta get out there and make up time!!! But a quick look at my weightloss chart and I see I'm averaging a loss of over 2 lbs a week. I'm ok, I don't need to catch up to anything. I'm on track. I just need to start getting that 50 or 30 mins a day.

I'll start with 50 and work up to 30...or maybe I can do 40 and 10? lol I'll work on the 50 for now...high intensity will kill me after all these weeks of non-aerobic movement.

When I started this journey, I wasn't sure I'd make it. Now I'm starting to believe I will. I know I'll continue to use the plan I'm on for the rest of my life...I know I have to. I've got an addictive personality, and since I've removed all the other harmful addictions from my life, I'm left with Food. One must EAT to live, so I can't remove that one...I need to work with it.

Of course I could become addicted to creativity and I'm leaning that way...photoshop is calling my name and there's the possibility of earning a little extra cash in another realm. :D
I'm going to spend some time this weekend reading up on it and learning a bit of how to use a wacom tablet.

And I'm going to get out and move for at least 50 mins a day this week! I CAN DO THAT!
