365 Days to a Better Me: Week 2

25 September 2012

My new running shoes!
This weekend became a breaking point for me. I decided that a strict diet must be implemented because I felt my health status was spiraling out of control. A week ago I described my progress from week one. New habits are hard to form and many of the things I had aimed to do like taking a multivitamin and working out habitually went right out the window last week. This won't be an entirely depressing post, I promise. I actually went to Yoga at the beginning of the week but somehow neglected to remember a barre workout I had signed up for on Saturday. Further, I participated in a lot of activities that included alcohol, sugary drinks and baked goods. You can guess how that ended. 153 lbs on the scale.

So here I am back on the wagon. I vowed to give up sugary drinks, baked goods and alcohol because none of those things are necessary. Not one bit. And I'm an emotional eater. It has been two days and I'm already down to 146.6 lbs as of this morning. My secret? Well, yesterday Mr. Collier and I ditched our car and walked to and from work (3 miles round trip). Also I didn't purchase an afternoon cookie or latte and stuck to my calorie counting religiously. Snacks after 8 p.m. just didn't happen.

Today I'm heading to yoga after work and then walking the rest of the way (1.5 miles). And I can't wait to get in a run over the next few days to try out my new running shoes!
