Dark Raven's Total Life Blog
« on: March 23, 2015, 05:16:28 PM »
So, today I make a change.  I'm vowing to lose 30 lbs by September 30.  I need to start eating healthier, drinking more water, paying attention to what goes into my mouth, I need to exercise.

Fifteen years ago I weighed 127 lbs and passed the physical fitness test to get into the USMC.  Now I can't even remember how to exercise and last about 5 minutes.

I know how to cook, but at the same time I don't.  I make junk and eat it, but I need to be eating balanced, nutritious meals. 

I need to do this for me, no matter how much my hubby says he loves me as is.  I need to get ahead of this before I fall into the same traps that earned my grandmother a life-ending heart attack.  What better day to do it than what would have been her 93rd birthday.

For Gramma and for me.

You can do it, Daylily! <3

I've always found getting into a regular exercise routine is harder than adjusting what I eat. Will be cheering you on and hoping you reach your goal! ^^

3/28:

8,000 steps at work
2 minute wall sit
20 wall pushups
10 squats
10 leglifts

Had a diet soda today for the first time in a long time.  It did not appeal to me, even though I finished it (because I hate to waste things).  I was happy with my hot tea in the morning and the water through the rest of the day.  I am noticing that the trip to the grocery is sorely needed soon because I need dairy (I am craving buttered toast something awful, and I know I need to drink more milk since I can't buy just cheese at work and they only have whole milk or protein drinks that are not tasty in the least to me).
