Now Is the Time

I'm done procrastinating. The longer I wait to start living a healthy life, the longer it will take me to look and feel the way I want and the more fat I will pack on. Last week, I was eating whatever I wanted to and laying around the house all day. I bought a box of 6 cupcakes and ate them ALL in one day! I stepped on the scale and what I saw was unacceptable. I decided right then that I was ready to make a change.
    I went to the grocery store and I bought fruits, veggies and low-fat and calorie foods. I purchased Raisin Bran instead of Cocoa Pebbles and yogurt instead of ice cream. Then I went to the Vitamin Shoppe and bought a multivitamin and some supplements (not the caffeine filled weight loss supplements- the healthy kind!) After my errands, I went to the gym and worked out for an hour. I have begun to use Fitday.com to keep track of my calorie intake and expenditure.
    It's only been three days since I started my new life and I feel better already! Every day I am one day closer to my goal. The best thing is the pride I feel for taking care of myself and the knowledge that my body is getting the nutrition and exercise it needs.

Tell me about it. Mon, Tues, Wed, and half of Thursday, I starved myself eating very little food and only healty food, then last night, Kentucky fried chicken, mac and cheese, potatoes, gravy and biscuits with butter and orange soda. This morning a hamburger and pepsi. I feel like a loser.

Yeah I just ate a personal pizza and dessert and I ate McDonalds yesterday... I am so mad at myself.<br />

Great start! One of my goals is to start working out again ( I momentarily stopped) and keeping track of my calories sounds like a good idea too.<br />

Awesome start!! I just started a diet and fitness routine on Monday, and I've committed to blogging about it to that I feel like I'm connected to a group that is supporting me and also held accountable for my goals. If you want to start a blog about it too we can track eachother!
