Complaining will not change things in your life; only action will. Make a list of all you need to do to change what doesn't work in your life and, little by little, begin making those changes.
-Susan Jeffers

Whew what a relief the scale was this morning in a good/bad way. I thankfully lost 5 lbs by 8:30 this morning. It's still a 2 lb gain from my last weigh in on the 24th of June. I'm really glad I got on the scale yesterday. It really was the fright I needed to push me up off the couch.

I'm so tired of being this unhealthy. For almost 2 weeks I've had burning in my stomach and I'm sure it's from all the chili I eat. Plus I just got back from a week in Utah visiting family and eating more than a fair share of fatty foods. I was just waking up feeling so nauseous that I wouldn't even drink my morning coffee until later on after I had breakfast and my stomach settled a little. I was even started to wonder if it was morning sickness and went out and bought a pregnancy test (which came out negative).

I'm also tired of cropping all my photos to get the most flattering photo. I totally cropped myself in this photo to avoid showing the full width of my upper arms or my tummy rolls. I really hate getting my picture taken by a camera that isn't my own. This way I can crop it before it's downloaded.

So this morning I got up and was motivated. I started off with weighing in and my honey jumped on the scale as well. (Yay for the spousal support!) We made oatmeal with bananas for breakfast. I let that settle and built up the motivation and got on the wii and did a 6 minute workout on Gold's Gym Cardio Boxing. It kicked my butt for just that little of time. It said that I burned 72 calories and did 311 punch count.

My thighs are extremely sore now from the squating so I'll definately have to mix it up and try something different tomorrow. I can hardly wait!

Welcome back, again! So glad to see you posting again. Every minute spent exercising counts. I sucked yesterday and had this horrible attitude about even going for a walk, so I didn't. Those days come and they go for all of us. So glad to see you back on track. You're not alone.
