So, after flirting with a close friend, I have gotten the motivation to get back into shape. Im currently at 150 lbs, and want to get back down to at least 120 lbs. Get from a 14 pants, to the single digits.
How am I going to acheive this? LOTS of walking. At least for the first week. Walking is all I can really do until I get my next paycheck. Its too cold to bike (clothes getting in the way of safely biking), but I can walk anywhere when super-bundled up. Then, at work, I will try to exaggerate my movements when lift heavy items, moving something big from one side of the belt to the other, etc.
Eating right is gonna help to. As of right now, I am making a nice veggie soup. Very little salt, and all good. I never get tired of making and eating it, and having it for a diet does cross my mind. However, I will end up hating that, so I gotta think of something else. Going to start eating in the morning, yogurt, granola, or fruit. Simple, but filling. Lunches that I have at work will be either salad, veggie sushi, or again, more fruit. Then dinner will be more structured.
Once I get paid, then I will sign up for the gym.
Anyway, This week was brutal. Breakup at the start (though, we have been drifting for awhile.), was assaulted by a customer, and fell into a frozen holding pond. And yes, frozen water does feel like pins and knives. Luckily, it was knee deep, but it was a bitch getting out. Steep hill, and chafing, tight, wet clothes, and a long walk to the door of the house. Was pretty miserable for the next few hours, shivering constantly while trying to peel off the frozen clothes, dry off, and get into my pajamas. Hid under blankets for the rest of that night.
But, I am now psyched for the weeks ahead. I will feel better because I am making myself better.
As for the art side of me, I finally got my camera to work, but found out that my computer cant take sony memory sticks. Gotta find a way to transfer everything. Probably use the old laptop to upload. I will have some stuff uploaded soon!
