I feel great

I am proud to announce that after many months (since July) of not exercising, I exercised 3 times so far this week! And I feel really great. Not only did I exercise, but I did more in one session than I ever did before.

I do The Firm, and I absolutely love and endorse it! However, it really kicks your butt, that's why I like it, but because of that I have never done it for more than 30 minutes. The average DVD is 60 minutes. But last night, after having a not so great day (a slice of pizza and a piece of cake), I did 45 minutes. 45 minutes of this tape for me is 6 points. Yes, I did it this long to counter how many points I went over. But I felt great for doing it.

And tomorrow after work I will do another 45 minutes, maybe even the whole hour. Can't wait! I love exercising, and I am glad I am getting it back into my routine!

Up, Up & Away...

As I expected, i gained 1.8 pounds. However, I'm not disappointed. I am going to keep my enthusiasm, and tomorrow I am going to come home and exercise. I swear!!!! When I got home tonight I made a huge batch of Garden Vegetable Soup, to take for lunch, and maybe have with my dinner tomorrow. I've never made it before, but I think it'll be good.

Yesterday, I came home from work and was supposed to exercise, but I was so excited to make this cheesecake recipe that I found, I completely forgot to exercise. I thought I ruined the cheesecake, because the top of it looked "toasted" almost like a meringue. But I put it in the fridge anyway. Today when I came home, before WW, I sliced some fresh strawberries, and sprinkled them with splenda. After dinner tonight, I had a piece of the cheesecake topped with some strawberries. IT WAS AWESOME! I'm not much of a baker, and I've never made a baked cheesecake before. And was pleasantly surprised that it came out really good. 3 points a slice, not too bad, and definitely worth it. Next week I'm going to try an Angel Lush Cake.

This week I am going to concentrate more on what I eat. And why, and when. I need to stop eating just because I'm bored. Granted I am definitely not eating the crap I would have eaten before, but I am still eating too much. And those marshmallow bunnies, and peanut butter eggs aren't doing me any favors!

Wish me luck!

New Blog

Hello out there. I'm new to this blog forum, so I wanted to introduce myself. I usually blog on, because that's why I blog. I am 30 years old and on Weight Watchers. As of last week I've lost 96 pounds. According to WW I have 11 pounds to go! However, this was the topic of my last blog...

I look at myself and can't see how 11 pounds is going to be enough. I know I just need to tone but I am having a heck of a time getting back to exercising. I work 10 hours a day, and have 3 classes this semester, so time is hard to come by. By the time I get home from work, I am tired, and hungry. I am trying to get at least 2 days a week in. My goal today is to go home and exercise. I can't think about it...I just have to do it!!!

I am having a pretty hard time with my motivation right now. I think I had the winter blues. But thankfully spring is finally coming. Watch tomorrow will be rediculously cold or something. I feel much better and excited when it's warm and the sun is shining. Like I can conquer the world! Ya know what I mean?

I have a tendency to babble, and not be very witty, so I'm sorry for those new to my blog. I'm working on it I swear!

Well last week I had a HUGE 4 pound loss, but I think I gained it all back this week. I let go of all the rules this weekend! I got attacked by the Easter Bunny, and went out with the husband, and after waiting for 1 hour before our waitress FINALLY showed up (we went to a sports bar to watch Wrestlemania), I was pissed off, and lost all inhibitions and ordered potato skins! UGH!!

So needless to say, it will be a bad week on the weight front!
