Just a short entry..doing great. I have a basic routine going now. I think that's the hardest part of it all. Once you get a routine in you tend to go more on auto pilot. I am walking 4 miles a day. I split them up. I loooooooooove Leslie Sansone walking videos and highly recommend them. I'm not trying to kill msyelf and beat my times at the gym or face up to the elliptical which kills my knees. I am just very simply walking 4 miles a day. However I get in, it is how I get it in. I'm not stressing about it. Yesterday I did 3 different 1 mile videos!! I get bored easily so I just have to do whatever it takes to get it done. Today I did 1 mile before I took the kids, then 2 mile video upon return. I will go around the neighborhood tonight to get in my last mile. I'm sure it's technically better to walk all 4 at once, but I"m not stressing about it. I'll never be a marathon runner. It's not my thing. But if I get 4 miles in, any which way, I'm happy. I'm convinced what matters most is that I get it done, not what order I get it done in. Of course, we'll let the scale reflect that on Saturday and reassess....
As for food...it's literally a non issue. I have zero issues with food right now. I came off sugar and it pretty much cured me. I only wish more people could realize how addictive it is. Weight Watchers didn't work for me b/c it allowed me sugar. In fact pretty much all diets allow sugar. THey encourage you to eat it in moderation of course...but ever tried telling an alcoholic to drink in moderationa?? Yeah right.....If you're a sugar addict, then you need to get it out of your body and keep it out. I am now pretty much focusing on my workout plan b/c honestly food isn't a problem right now. I'm hoping this isn't some fluke or freak thing...but it's been over 2 weeks now and I go through the day with no cravings. Sure I still have moments where I'd love a brownie, but I can say no to it. Before, I would have scaled a wall for it, maybe even dug it out of a trash can! That's crazy behavior.....Now will power alone IS enough to not eat it. But before the drug was running through my veins and that was why I couldn't say no. Just say no to drugs!!! Which to me, now includes sugar!
