Back under 190

After my disastrous eating last week (and monday), I finally worked out yesterday. I have found that working out to shows I like is very efficient. Yesterday was the biggest loser and can I tell you, that is one of the best shows to work out to.

I walked for the entire thing (8 miles!). Burnt over 800 calories which is probably why I'm under 190 today. There is nothing more motivating than seeing these very large people running and being active. It makes me feel, if they can do it, so can I. They had this surfer chic who lost her arm as a teen but still became a professional surfer. Hold on, let me google her. Okay, her name is Bethany Hamilton. You should google her too.  It was very inspirational to listen to her and not corny in any way. Also she has a rocking body and you can tell she works for it.

It just reminded me about how you get what you put in. Hard work yields results all the time and i can't expect to get great results without inconveniencing my self. Weight loss is only going to be temporary till i get to where I want to be and then I can focus on other things.

Anyway, my goal is to be 185 by the end of the month. I would like to fit into size 10 clothes by April (I'm a 12 now). I think I fit into that once in my adult life and I had gotten to about 178 or so. So hopefully it's doable.

Side note: As I continue on this journey, I need to remember that i HAVE to work out. Not only because my body responds to it but also because 1400 calories is SO LITTLE for me. working out allows me to eat more ;)
