Songs to get YOU moving

* these are songs I love listening to while working out, or to get pumped up. I'll try to leave out offensive videos


I think that grumpiness is just standard operating procedure while changing your diet. At least, I hope so cause I am a total mess! Totally irritable and annoying. I know it goes away, but man oh man. blech!
When I get grumpy I am letting myself eat something rather than nothing at all. I'll grab an apple or some cucumber or something else better than those stinkin' hershey kisses sitting in my cuboard (that's a whole 'nother post, for another day)

The good news!!

Weight loss: 8 pounds!!
Activity: Walking whenever I can. I also stood and went on my "toes" for 20 minutes during a basketball game. I looked like a dork going up and down, but at least I did something.

What's for Breakfast

I can't stand breakfast. Really! The idea of eating something right after I wake up is so unappealing to me. I don't even like breakfast foods either. Pancakes are too heavy, You can only have so many eggs and bacon....well.....bacon is in a category all by itself. It's a treat for every meal :) I don't eat yogurt or cereal because I don't do dairy and I am cutting out and or down on breads.

What's left?

No, seriously! What's left?

Today it was hot herbal tea and a boiled egg. Counts as a breakfast to me. I need to eat breakfast, Actually one of my goals is to eat more often as well as eat breakfast. The skinniest people I know eat breakfast, and while skinniness is not a goal it's an indication that breakfast can't be as bad as I think it is.

GOAL PROGRESS: Since stopping eating out (any/all meals) I have lost 4 pounds.
MOVEMENT: Walking the dog .5-.75 mile

Let's get this party started

So here it goes. Like many others on the web I am out to track my journey to health. This is my jumping off point, the beginning of the final diet of my life, a beginning of a new life.
Over the next few weeks, months ok.....probably year or more I will be tracking my food, weight, inches and exercise routine in hope of motivating myself and others to get healthy.

I've set many goals. The first is GET UP AND MOVE!
The second is GET UP AND MOVE!

I've spent far too much time on my freaking butt. Getting up and moving along with a much better diet should get me to my set goals, which I will share.

I will NOT set a number on my scale or a magic number which I wish to vanish from my butt, thighs, hips and arms, but smaller goals along the way. There is no "finished product", no end result except time to spend with friends and family in a healthy and happy way.

Why am I doing this online?
Why not?
Everybody's doing it.
If you've read "The Five Love Languages" I am someone who needs Words of Affirmation. The internet, as mean as it is, can also inspire. I need motivation. Someone telling me i'm doing well, or I CAN DO MORE!
I need someone asking me, where's my blogpost today. I'm needy in that way?
Don't congratulate me! Motivate me! Encourage me! Love me! :)

Enough with the posting dangit, let Get Moving!!
