I had decided I as going to pick one day a week to keep my readers up to date and to keep my accountable to my goals for this year. Since the Wii Fit Mommies have a Fitness Friday Meme, I figured Friday's as good a day as any to post. :)
So today is the start. I told you last week that I was working hard to convince myself that I crave water. It's not quite working, but I did go 4 1/2 days drinking 5 or more bottles of water. I decided that New Year's Eve would be a splurge, and I asked John to pick up ONE bottle of Pepsi for me. Wanting to be nice he picked up two. :) I drank quite a bit of Pepsi (not to mention the wine/champagne!) on New Year's Eve and then on New Year's Day. But I'm back to drinking water. (I've had one bottle so far today.) I'm working on my goal of getting used to this one big change before I try to add to many more. (So I have had more chocolate than I need!)
My Wii Fit is not getting as much use as I'd like. It's really hard getting up early in the morning if I didn't get to sleep before midnight. And every time I turn on the Wii, the kids come running! They want to watch (which I don't mind), but they have trouble staying still. Last time I tried, Crunchy walked behind just as I was doing a leg stretched. I almost kicked her. I didn't want to hurt her (or me---if I fell off the balance board!) so I just turned it off. I've got to find a way to make it work with my life.
My starting weight was 272. The highest it's been in a very long time. :( This is really troubling after getting down to about 240 last year. This time I want to make it stick. This morning I weighed in at 269. It's a start. Until next Friday.....
