Oh how I wish this was the number on the scale. Instead it is the number of days in a row that I have exercised. While I feel stronger and am becoming more toned, the number on the scale remains relatively unchanged.

Starting Thursday I am going to start watching what I put in my pie hole. I would start today but I have several good-bye lunches to attend. I will go back to tracking every morsel of food in My Fitness Pal.

I am also going to maintain my early morning get up time and work out in the morning since I will be starting 90 minutes later than I currently do. I love getting my workout done first thing so I can truly relax when I get home. Or throw in a second workout if it’s been a particularly calorie heavy day.

Last night we watched The Legend of Tarzan.

And to get into that crazy shape, the actor who played Tarzan gave up sugar, gluten, wheat, dairy and alcohol … Sounds about right.

For a foodie, this sounds like torture but short term pain for long term gain, right?

Time to reset

It’s time to get back on the wagon. I have fallen off big time.

The office next to mine is the hub for all things delicious and unhealthy. The company supplies jube jubes.

Delightful sugary good times. Only 13 calories each, which wouldn’t be so bad if I didn’t eat more than 10 a day.

The coworkers who share the treat office are also enablers. Frequently bringing in popcorn, chips, chocolates etc.

It’s time to put my health back at the top of my list. Starting with a massage today and I managed to sneak in a quick (look how out of shape I am) walk following Diva to the mall.

My endurance and cardio needs attention stat.

Tomorrow I am going to back to proper meal planning and a serious increase in vegetables. I will also get back on my fitness pal. Gotta keep accountable. 😉

Project get back to healthy starts again!

PGH – 12/8/15

Tight on time

Added a new video to my routine. Do you remember her from her Buns of Steel fame?

I really like these 10 minute videos. Very easy to convince myself to do one and most times I do a second one once I’m warmed up. 🙂

I’ve re-started my love affair with myfitnesspal.com. I have been on point all month … lol … with both my tracking of calories and working out. 8 days and counting.

My body actually felt like it needed to move yesterday. 🙂 Strangest feeling ever!

It might just be all in my head but my legs and arms feel stronger. I think they look leaner too. Even if I am delusional I’ll take it as it is motivating me to continue.

Now to step on the scale …
