The "official" ticker!

The first few days...

...have really been nothing remarkable! I haven't dropped ten pounds, I haven't run 5 miles, I haven't sweated to any workout videos. What I HAVE done is:

> have walked all over the hospital I'm doing clinicals at without needing medical attention myself

> found a great new juice drink made by Crystal Light that has 3g of fiber per serving AND it tastes good! A little pricey but a great way to get some extra fiber in my daily diet

> Done a REALLY good job of eating more fruits and veggies everyday, saved money on taking my lunches to clinicals, AND eating healthier without suffering

> have not drank any Diet Dr. Pepper; have also managed to walk past the powerful magnetic force put out by the soda pop aisle at the grocery store without bodily harm

Because of some really wonky work/school schedules, I have not been able to measure or weigh myself as of yet, but it is on my "to do" list before the week is up. It's also complicated by the fact that I hafta use one of those stand-up scales because I'm currently too ponderous to use a regular 'ole scale from Wally World. Yeah, it's that bad.

So for the rest of the week, my goal is to continue choosing foods that are good for me and that I do like such as fruits and veggies, quite abundant this time of year! I'm also having fun consciously drinking more water, whether flavored or just from the Brita pitcher. I'm also still working on some sort of check-off list for walking on the treadmill...lists work for this momma!

  1. I'm so proud of you! Not drinking any pop is such a HUGE accomplishment. Especially if you think about all the additives that are added to get you addicted to them. You go girl! :) Can't wait until we can run a triathalon with you!!! :)
