Climb Day 78 Free Fall

In spite of the water drinking and push ups I can't seem to get it under control. What is wrong with me? I feel like I am looking up through a dark hole when I think about my weight and health. I am not particularly depressed about my life as a whole but my weight management is dragging me down. I am in free fall. Things will be better tomorrow. How to make a clean start? I am not getting ahead.

Climb Day 67 Water and Exercise

Water is my new best friend! In spite of the gag reflex ( hahahahaha) I continue to force the stuff down my throat! I am impressed that I no longer have the horrible caffeine headache I suffered at first because I naturally limited my caffeine intake. Oh, and I am exercising, too! I am quite proud of myself. I am doing modified pushups using the kitchen counter. I am sooo... sore! I am doing thirty pushups every day and hope to increase to fifty by next week. I am also walking  more. I walked twenty minutes in a department store today. It was huge! I know that is not supposed to count but I walked fast from one end of the store to the other for twenty minutes and that should count for something.  As you see I am trying to milk every bit of my exercise for your  compassion! LOL Anyway I am pleased with my work. I am beginning to lose pounds and will see inches come off soon.  Thanks to everyone for your support. I am changing my habits so I will begin seeing weight loss soon!

Climb Day 58: Water, Water, Water

I am drinking a lot more water. This is a good thing. As the temp rises out side I keep drinking more water. The inside of my body has never been so clean! Again! This is a good thing. I am ahead of the game.

Climb Day 53 Reflection

I am reflecting on my climb so far and although I have not lost many pounds I find that I am doing things differently. I am drinking more water, and very conscious of everything I am eating. I have cut my sugar intake by half. By that I mean that every other day is sugar free. That is a good change. If sugary treats did not wander into my home there would be less flops... oh well!

I am exercising a little more and am thoughtful about the foods I eat. There are still failures but not so many as before. Thanks everyone for your support!

Climb Day 48 Almost Sugar Free

This one I resisted but it was Easter at Glenda Marshall's home. Well... two days with sugar out of six is not bad for a beginner. I managed to stay sugar free for two-thirds of the week so I am ahead. I am continuing to boycott sugar as long as I can. It is bound to make a difference in my life as I move forward. It was the mini chocolate donuts that wandered into the house without my permission that brought me down! Today I am sugar free and that is something!
