Integrating Exercise

So of course I didn't think I was going to lose 70lbs without exercising. I just had to re-adjust my mind. I have always been an athletic person of some sorts. My calves have always been my pride. I played volleyball and soccer in high school and I worked out frequently in college. But lately, I have had trouble even running up and down the steps at my house. It is just downright shameful. I have an all-access membership to Bally's because when I got home in 2005, it was my plan to continue a healthy lifestyle. I have probably been to the gym about 15 times in the last year. SHAMEFUL is not even the word. RIDICULOUS is more like it. So going back in there was difficult. Of course no one in the gym knows my story because it is not like I am wearing these facts plastered on my back but personally starting at the bottom is rough. A brief 30 minute work-out on the elliptical. The End.

But I just kept saying my motto to myself and I kept it moving.

Sucks that I lost my MP-3 player. I have been putting off exercising for the last month and a half because of this loss. I just ordered a new one this past week and then decided to start exercising without it. It was boring as hell, but still a breakthrough none-the-less. At the end of the day I enjoyed it as I have always enjoyed exercising. It brought back some memories of sweat and bliss. I am excited for the future.

Yesterday's Subsistence

Breakfast - one fried chicken wing and a half
Snack 1 - nothing
Lunch - salad with ranch dressing, baked chicken in light gravy
Snack 2 - nothing
Dinner - Juice Plus
Snack 3 (OPTIONAL IF AFTER 7PM) - Craisins

I know that missing those snacks is going to come and bite me in the butt later. But seriously I am not hungry and I really don't have time to stop and eat them while I am at work. The problem is I am losing weight but I am losing it dangerously fast and whenever I hit a brick wall in this process, I will not be able to reduce my calories to get a jump start because they are already ridiculously low. Also I am starting to get a cold, which may mean that my body is in a bit of a shock right now since I am consuming only about 1000 calories a day, which in some opinions may be border line eating disorder. Hmmm ... I will work on this. Stay tuned.
