Come visit me at Girly Bitz. It's my other interweb hangout.

Day One. Deja vu Edition.

The last several posts are all lamentations on how fat I feel and how I'm tired of it and how I'm ready to change.  But, no change ever happens.

So, there's that.

For the past 2 and a half years, I've been talking the talk but not walking the walk.

My goal, this time, is to start walking the walk.  I plan to come on here 5 days a week and document my walk.  What I'm eating.  What I'm doing to be healthier.  How that's making me feel.

That's it.  Plain and simple.

Shall we begin?

Today was not off to a great start.  I awoke with a migraine and a lot of nausea.  Breakfast was a ginger ale and 2 slices of toast.  Lunch was 4 whole wheat waffles with 2 tbsps of butter and some low calorie syrup.

I'm not sure what dinner will be.  I have a fairly busy afternoon ahead of me and might end up eating out because I may not have time to prepare anything.  It's just the reality of the day.

I plan to snack on an apple while I take the little dog to the vet.  Weather and time permitting, I may also take both dogs for a walk around the neighborhood.

That's today.

Tomorrow will be better.

Changes.

I'm making some changes around here.  I wanted to spice things up a bit, so I went with a red theme.  Nothing fancy.  Just some new digs for a new attitude. 

I'm tired of feeling like I'm gross.  I want to regain my self confidence, my inner spark and get a little sexy back. 

I know it's going to require a little more than changing up my colors.  I have a lot of work to do.  It's time to start making some bigger changes and I'm ready to do it. 

You in?
Okay.  Day Two of the new year and things are going pretty well. 

I am slowly finding my motivation.  It's funny how quickly you forget the calorie content of foods when you haven't tracked them for awhile.  It's funny how portion sizes go completely out of your head too. 

It'll come back to me though.  It always does.

I did log into My Fitness Pal today and dusted off my profile page over there.  That's progress. .

Once I go to the grocery store and stock up on healthy stuff, I can plan some meals and get back into tracking every day. 

Today was another good day so far.  Another healthy breakfast of Cheerios with fresh blueberries.  A nice lunch of chicken moroccan soup with chick peas and a fat free peach yogurt.  MB and I went out for dinner and got strombolis.  We each ate half and saved the other half for tomorrow. 

Baby steps, people.  Baby steps.
