Day 30- baby steps - 100 followers - how did that happen?

I hit 100 followers today, I'm overwhelmed. I started this blog as just an outlet for me and my thoughts. Along the way I've found incredible inspiration and kindered spirits in this weight loss battle and goal to get healthy. Thank you so much for sharing this journey with me. We will succeed!

Two days of tracking and two days of water are completed in my new week. Activity today was housework i.e. up and down stairs for laundry, stripping bed sheets (wrestling with duvet covers), vacuuming and etc.

While I was waiting for my massage appointment on Friday I was flipping through Canadian Living magazine and they had an article on "Village on a diet". I've been following the show and I enjoy how real it is. These are people who are adjusting to a new healthy lifestyle and there are bumps on the road. One of thing I read that stuck with me was one of the specialists talked about mind hungry vs body hungry. I've heard this before of course but I liked how they phrased it. I know I battle with the mind hungry - not really hungry but bored or tired. I'm going to try to keep that in focus this week and I have this weekend.

Now I'm watching the finale of Bridalplasty because I found it strangely addictive. I'm so happy with the winner.

My work bag is packed for tomorrow and I was happy to see that the weather will warm  up here and there as the week progresses.

I'm looking forward to trying out the bike shorts and bike seat cover on the spin bikes. I tried the shorts on yesterday and I'll need to wear my normal workout capris over them at site. I get why they need to be pretty fitted but there a little too short to be running around in a primarily male environment. Not that anyone would be disrespectful but it's more my comfort level.

The goals this week are track (everything), drink 2l of water per day and exercise for a minimum of 30 min on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday will depend on the plan situation. A Friday workout will happen for sure. I discoverd two iron rep classes on Friday at my gym.

Alright I'm signing off as I need to start winding down for my early alarm. Hope you all had a fabulous Sunday.

When I started blogging, I read alot of blogs - yours is one of the dozen or so I've stuck with because you are so "real".
