Tenacious Thursday #1

I'm going to start a new series here.  Here's the deal:  I need y'all!!!  Tenacious Thursday is going to be all about accountability and never giving up.  I falter, I fail, I flounder, I am up and down but I am determined.  

You're probably wondering what on earth I am talking about, right?  Well, it's my weight and health.  I am so tired of being overweight and unhealthy.  When I hit onederland (weighing in the 100's) last year, I was so excited because that was so hard! Granted, I was only 2 pounds under 200 but still it was great progress.  Then, I stopped tracking, stopped exercising, and once again began mindless eating and once again gained back all 20 pounds that I lost.  

So, let me tell you my strategy that I am totally turning 360 degrees on this time.  I do not want to track what I eat forever.  I'm tired of tracking what I eat.  I know, I know, everyone says you are so much more successful when you track but eventually you stop and then what? For me, that "what" is always start gaining.  I think tracking kind makes you obsessive about food as well.  

So, here's what I am doing - slow and steady!  

  • no tracking
  • making sure to eat at least 6-8 servings of fruits/veggies a day
  • starting my day with an egg, Canadian bacon, bacon,  or sausage and fruit ( I have skipped breakfast in the past or just eaten a granola bar.)
  • try hard to hit my step goal of 7,000 daily (just upped that from 5,000)
  • starting c25k (again going slow and repeating days until I feel I'm ready to move to the next day comfortably
  • no weighing until June 1st
Here's my picture from earlier this week where I completed my 2nd attempt of Day 1 of c25k slipping and sliding in the mud and all.  :)

Now, here is where you come in.  If I don't check in every Thursday, please please ask me where I am and how I'm doing?  Not too hard, right?  If you are willing to help me, would you please start by either commenting below or emailing me.  Thank you in advance!
