I is for Insane

Because that is how I feel right now!  It seems like the harder I try to diet and exercise the worse I am at it.

Good. Grief.

I started this blog NINE weeks ago.  I was hoping to lose at least 1 pound a week.  I should be down at least 9 pounds at this point.  Guess how much I have lost?  Zip. Zilch. Zero.  That's right.  NONE!  I know I have gone through a lot in the last 6 weeks, but that really isn't a good excuse.  I have only myself to blame.  I could also blame C and K, but I won't.  I work with C and K and they know that I have no willpower.  Especially if they are going to Garcia's.  It is the best mexican restaurant on Earth!  My mouth is watering just thinking about it.  Sorry.  I get a little carried away when I think of that place.  So you see how hard dieting can be when you work with C and K. 

All of that is going to change.  Tomorrow.  I have told them if they are going out to eat they are not allowed to tell me about it.  It will be that simple.  Right?  I certainly hope so. 

I am going to start the Three Day Diet tomorrow.  You are supposed to lose up to 10 pounds in three days.  I know I probably won't lose that much, but 3-4 pounds will certainly boost my ego and will hopefully keep me going. 

I also started going back to the gym today.  So I am on the right track.  Once again.  Hopefully I will stay on the right track this time.  As long as I can keep from going insane when I know C and K are going to Garcia's without me.............

G is for Gym and H is for Habit

I started this blog to help me lose weight and get back in shape.  I thought I could help others with it too, but I haven't been very good about keeping it updated.  Life has gotten in the way.  Needless to say, I haven't lost any weight either.

As most of you know, my mom fell on December 10th and has been in the hospital or a nursing facility since then.  I try to go to the hospital every day and it has become very easy to just stop somewhere and grab a bite to eat.  I usually don't make the best choices when I go out to eat.  There is so much to choose from and I have no willpower!

I have decided all of that is going to change.  Today.  Ok.  Tomorrow.  I already have a membership to the gym.  So I can't use that as an excuse.  I really don't like going to the gym.  I would rather run outside, but until the weather turns around a little I have no choice.  I am off tomorrow, so I am going to get up a little earlier and go to the gym.  On the days that I have to work, I will go either before or after I visit with mom.  I should probably go before, because once I go visit with her I will find a million excuses for not going.  On the weekend or days off I will get up early and go.  Hopefully I can get back in the habit of going and it won't seem like such a chore.
