Today I accomplished something I haven’t in a really long time. I touched my toes. Now that may not seem like much but I, even when skinny was never very flexible. But I did it today. These Power Stretch classes are expensive, but I’m finding the way. I’ve given up soda and DnD and eating out. No more fast food for me. I’ve been keeping track on myfitnesspal.com. In 3 weeks I’ve lost 7lbs. I had lost 8 but gained one back. I didn’t think it bothered me but I guess it did. I back slid a bit this past week. I kept under my calorie count but my carbs were over and my workouts weren’t as good as they should have been. But I did go, 4 sessions this week, 3 at the gym and 1 power stretch. Next week will be 4 at the gym as I’m doing power stretch every other week as that’s costing me a lot of money but really really worth it. I leave there and feel amazing. I hurt, but I feel great.
I found a youtube station for yoga and I need to rip the vids so I can play them on my tv. I am not the most savvy tech wise but I’ll get it sorted.
Another thing I did today was food shop. I went to 3 different stores to get the things I wanted. I’m fine with that. I didn’t grow up with big box stores, we always went to the butcher and the grocer and (no not the candlestick maker) the supermarket was for dry goods and cleaning supplies.
My new goal is to not eat frozen meals. I’m getting the hang of portioning thanks to my new food scale. I bought salad and chicken and fish. I’m looking forward to food this week. I still need to work on sides. To me sides are always pasta and potatoes. I even bought Brussel sprouts… who am I?!?
I’m only 3 weeks into this change. I was a month ago I saw myself and finally said NO. Supposedly it takes 30 days to change or form a habit. This week was a little rough going, I was really whining but thanks to a few good friends I kept mostly on track.
I found an old picture of me that I’m using as Thinspiration. It’s about 8-9 years old I was 38-39. So I’m not being unrealistic in my goals.

When I was researching yoga and gyms I found a place nearby (in a pricey community) that was called Power Stretch. I pay $60 to have a fit young man bend me and stretch me. ;)

It's a 45 min session that has me doing all kinds of stretches and poses much like yoga but he helps me get into the positions and holds me in place. When you're alone and out of shape you don't have that kind of help. I feel about 2 inches taller when I'm done.
