Went to the gym 1st time in forever

Good morning fellow bloggers,

I just wanted to write a short post. 

I went to the gym last night and walked a little over a mile on the treadmill.  It was all I could do because I am just starting back.  It was hard to find the time but I know I need to start getting more active.  After work there was traffic, I had to go to the grocery store and that was crowded then putting everything away at home, and then to the gym.  I wasn't feeling hungry before so I ate when I got back but it was on a plate the size of a dessert dish because I was trying to limit my food at that time.  Does anyone work out?  Do you eat before or after the gym?  I actually prefer working out on an empty stomach unless its a walk around the neighborhood then I would eat and walk after dinner.  I know its good for digestion and stuff.  I have decided I would like to shoot for my long term goal of losing 100 lbs.  I ideally I would like to lose 10-15 lbs per month but I know it slows down after the first hurdle is passed.  Right now I am my all time high of 230 lbs. : (  My ideal weight should be between 118-150 so I would like to be somewhat in the middle at about 130 if possible.  When I was in my early 20's I was 125 so I should think its possible knowing I have a medium body frame.  I am always posting what I wish and my goals, but I always struggle with making them happen.  But its become severe enough that I can't have children until I lose weight so I should look at this as doing it for my future family right?  Its sorta depressing.  I wish someone could just be my personal chef and my personal trainer.  Wouldn't that be the easy way?  HHEHEHE!

Have a great day everyone!

Well what to say....

Well, what should I say....

I don't have much to write about because after following the carb cycling for a bit, I feel off the wagon as I normally do.  Got to stressed from finishing school, helping my husband work, and doing all the millions of other duties a woman seems to always have to do!  Its never ending right?  It seems like I never get a chance to sit down unless I am at the office working.  I actually enjoy coming to work but its the one place that seems to be quiet which I need on occasion.  So even though I haven't followed the carb cycling plan still, I haven't been eating much for dinners because I never seem to be too hungry.  I use a dessert size plate to eat on and stick to that.  As soon as I can get things together and go to the grocery store Monday, I will be back following the guidelines (hopefully to the T).  I get pretty bored with foods though.  I hate bring my lunch to work because I prefer it to be fresh right out of the oven or frying pan.  Chicken and stuff like that just isn't yummy left over in the microwave because its too dried out.  I don't care for the low carb wraps too much because well I just don't like the taste.  I don't like the salads unless they are super fresh too because the lettuce tends to get wilted or begins to taste weird after its packed in my lunch container and kept in the fridge here at work.  What do you guys take for lunch to work that actually tastes good?  I need to work on breakfast better too now because I have a totally different schedule.  I started waking up at 5:30 am in August because my hubby and I are taking care of our niece now so she can go to school where we live instead of back home in PR.  Its been a big change because I am not a morning person and I definitely am not that hungry that early in the morning.  I guess I will have to boil some eggs and bring some microwave ready bacon or turkey bacon to work.  I know I will get tired of the egg but I could eat bacon everyday with no problem (hehe).  High school starts so early at 7 am here, I don't see how anyone can learn that early especially teenagers who like to sleep til noon most of the time, but those are the rules. 

Anyways....looks like I found something to say haha!!

Great to be back, I missed following all of you guys and writing to keep myself accountable.  I hope coming back to the blog will help me stick to eating right again.  I would love to lose those 80 lbs I need to lose.  I recently saw the People magazine ad about those people losing 100lbs and if figure if they did it and they were all about my weight, then I can do it.  I know there are others following the BFC that have had great success because you guys never gave up.  If I could just stick to it and do some exercise then I know I can achieve my goals (my dream of being skinny) again!

Have a great day making healthy eating choices everyone!
