DAY 7 - A Small Start, But A Start

I'm pretty disappointed with myself that I missed two days of blogging when I told myself I would write every night. Never again! Saturday night I crashed on the couch after my workout and fell asleep- then Sunday night I was feeling quite sick all evening. But no more excuses! So I decided I will save my free exchange for the weekend and for one meal only, I will allow myself to eat something I wouldn't usually eat when on a "diet" as long as it is only enough to fill me up. On Sunday I guess I used that up when I had pizza for dinner. I wish I hadn't because I think that is why I felt so sick. My body hadn't had to deal with the greasy mess since last September, and it did NOT like the sudden change. Pizza may not even be free exchange worthy.

This morning I stepped on the scale... I am now 197. So I lost exactly 2 pounds this week. Now it isn't as much as I had hoped in the beginning but I will take every loss I can get. I'm hoping my body will get used to the exercise and figure out how to use it! I am also going to reduce my intake. I have realized that I haven't really been waiting to feel hunger to eat my meals. I need to wait for God's signal for when I am truly hungry.

Saturday night I had about a 30 minute intese workout at my friends house. Her basement was a million degrees so we sweated like crazy! It double as having a sauna! We took turns running one minute on the treadmill and then doing toning excercises in between. We repeated this about 7 times. It felt great after.

Sunday I didn't really exercise, but I did work which I guess is exercise. Man those people make you run around like a chicken with it's head cut off! I have been wearing my ankle weights to work everyday and now I'm so used to them I don't even feel them on anymore! I hope this means my legs are getting stronger!

Today my mom and I took the dog for about a 35 minute walk, and I did a lot of work outside. My task for this week is to fill in all the cracks in the stone sidewalk with gravel. It takes forever!

Today for breakfast I had 2 diet bread with peanut butter and jam with a yogurt. For a snack I had a low-fat low-cal granola bar. For lunch I made a salad with fat free meat, tomato, cheese and random veggies I found in the fridge. Dinner was a taco with the family on a 6" whole wheat weight watchers wrap. Snack was 1/2 cup low-fat frozen yogurt.

I hope to get more exercise tomorrow, I'm hoping it will be as nice as today was!

Well it is a small start but it's a start! Looking forward to a week of staying on track, eating less and exercising!

Anything is possible with God,


  1. WooHoo Beth! Great work. You sound like you're doing quite a bit toward your goals. 2 pounds is great. You're really doing it.

    Keep going!

  2. Those 2 pounds are just right...steady to win the race Bethie! You add a ticker to your site to record your weight. I think you can get one at and then you have to copy and paste the URL to get it to post on your site.
