I made it through day one of being back into the swing of things. I didn't let the cold outside and the mountains of snow be an excuse for not exercising. I played Just Dance 2 on the wii for about an hour and it felt good to move though I hadn't realized how out of shape I had already got. I drank plenty of water and ate much healthier and in much smaller portions than I have been allowing myself. I'm starting a new job on the 28th after being out of work for 13 months. I'm determined to start that job weighing no more than 165 lbs. I have decided that I'll be weighing in every day until then. I know, I know, weighing every day is a big no-no but in this case I don't care. I weighed in this morning and already am down to 169.2 with just one day of being healthy. I think I should be able to get down to 165 as long as I continue. I'm looking forward to going back to work because I tend to be a boredom eater and being at the house all day in the winter is not good for that. In the summer it was great, 5 mile walks almost everyday, playing outside with my kids etc. but being inside the house and not exercising is killing me. I started today on the right track. I had a big scramble made with egg beaters, green peppers, tomato, chicken and half a slice of havarti cheese with an english muffin. It was a huge amount of food and it clocked in at around 400 calories. I drank coffee with splenda and sugarfree french vanilla coffee-mate with it. Lunch is going to be a lean cuisine steam entree, not sure what kind yet but they're pretty yummy.
