I ran! I ran!

Well....maybe more of a walk/run.

With more walking than running.


Shepherd took a morning nap and Ed was home working and suggested I go run.  I had tried to start up the treadmill and couldn't find the magnetic string thing that starts it up.  THEN I tried to do one of my new Biggest Loser Cardio dvd's and couldn't find an extra outlet to plug in the dvd player.  It was a comedy of errors, but I managed to get some real exercise!

I probably walked 2 miles.  Running was okay, though I felt like my insides might fall out.  Like giving birth all over again.  

Baby steps...

I've been tracking well and staying faithful to counting every point.  I remember when I lost all my weight in 2006 I did absolutely nothing other than stay honest with my points and stick to it every day.  No exercise, no carb cutting, nothing else but stay on plan.  And I stayed on plan perfectly for about 6 months straight.  I clearly remember the day I went over my points (and flex) and I cried and felt like I was going to gain it all back in one night.  The next day I went to my meeting and my leader said: "It's not about perfection, it's about progress."  THat stuck with me and gave me a vital tool: learn to fall and stand back up.  Don't throw in the towel over one mistake.  And that was how I continued onto my goal and maintained for a year (before getting pregnant again).  

So...I'm doing it again.
