Hmmm, last time I posted here I was working at Denny's! That was a LONG time ago!!!!

Well, I have been walking/running on the treadmill since May 31 and have just added weights in the last few days.
I am feeling better and more motivated to exercise then I ever have before.
I still don't know what the difference is this time because my motivation is still lousy!
I have started numerous times and never stuck to it.
So, I have exercised going on three weeks now.
I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but for me it is!
It's a record!

I am working to lose weight, lower my cholesterol and get my blood pressure to normal. I have lost a 5 pounds, but, more importantly, I am feeling good!

I'll keep adding more and more weights. I don't have strong arms so it's slow.

I have a punching bag now, too and that is Really Fun!! (Well, it will be when Mark puts it back up for me, I kicked it so hard I knocked it to the ground! ) LOL!!

Diet wise I am eating tons of fruits and vegies and I am not to go over 35 fat grams a day though most days I stay around 25.
I am choosing good fats, staying away from butter, mayo, baked goods and fast food.
In the past two weeks I've had mostly chicken, fish or vegetarian for dinner, limiting my red meat to once a week.

So Far, So Good!

hugs, train
