Moving to Wordpress

I'll be moving this blog over to wordpress in a couple of weeks. I'll post up the new url when it is all set up. 

I hope everyone is having a happy & healthy weekend.

1.5 miles

This morning I ran 1.5 miles in ten minutes!!  Now that may not be a big deal for some but for me it was.  Of course I was running in place with the Wii Fit but hell I did it and I couldn't feel more accomplished for it.   Running is one thing that I've wanted to do since I started my healthy journey. It's always just been barely out of my reach with tiring out after 1-minute of a slow job.  My scale hasn't budged yet but I feel that I'm getting stronger and that I'm almost craving now to work out.  Of course the bad part is that my gym membership ends on the 10th of this month and I'm not able to renew it yet.  But I have the Wii Fit and I can walk outside when it's not so cold and I have my family's support which has been amazing. 

I have been wearing my Fitbit Force also since I received it in the mail on Friday.  It is a bit awkward to clasp onto my wrist but other than that I havent had any issues at all.  It tracks all the stats I want it to with the exception of when I do a strong cardio work out so I have this heard rate monitor now on my wishlist

Polar FT7

I was looking at another one as mentioned a few blog posts ago but honestly I really don't need super fancy and this was a mid range one that has all the features I require.   I'll save up and try and buy it in March so I can keep even more accurate records of my cardio days. 

I start treatment late February for liver disease and if I do not encounter any side effects I'll rejoin the gym for the days I'm up to it.   I'd like to also take advance of the drop in classes that are included in the cost. 

Much Love!!!

First day = A new day

I started out 2014 in a positive way today.  I got up and took my measurements and current weight, plugged them into My Fitness Pal and then  took the family dog out on a 30-minute walk.  I would have gone longer but it was cold and I didn't dress appropriately.  My current stats saddened me a bit but didn't get myself time to dwell or get depressed over and instead took that walk :)  I'm happy I did that.   I have now added the sub-goal of taking the dog out by myself for at least 30-minutes on the days I don't work out. This way I'm still active. 

I had a good breakfast, a  mocha and now I'm watching movies while cleaning our living area and my bedroom. 

My new fitbit force should be here tomorrow and I'm quite excited to receive it.   My sister had gotten me a very pretty necklace for Christmas but it was so delicate that I was worried about it breaking plus I have this mental state that those types of necklaces are for women that weigh less that me.  She was very gracious about letting me return it and I picked up another kind of "jewelry" instead.  

You can't even imagine how excited I am to be getting this. I have the Fitbit zip and while it does work quite nicely I wanted something that would count stairs too and this one does!!  Yay!!!

I'm also buying two swimsuits by the end of January.   This is something while I'm not looking forward too I promised my sister I would so I could hit up the pool with her and the kids.  

I decided on these two:

I think both will give me enough coverage so that I wont feel too self conscious and nothing should sag out which is a nightmare of mine. EEK!!

I hope you all are having a great & warm New Years Day
