I am really inspired by the people on Extreme Makeover Weight Loss Edition. I just started watching the episodes online yesterday. These people are considerably more overweight than I am, and they accomplished so much in one year! One guy weighing over 540 lbs lost 266 lbs in a year! I only need to lose 120 lbs, so it's do-able.

I am proud of myself for not giving in to the lazy attitude my mind tried to hoist on me yesterday! I kept to my planned exercise despite hearing that voice say, "you've been so on track, it's okay to laze tonight."

I've started journaling my food again and thus have lost 4 of the lbs I had regained. I'm inspired to keep going!

My BF and I added an extra loop to our walk tonight, bringing our Monday, Wednesday and Friday walks over the 2 mile mark. Going to try a slightly different path Wednesday to see if can get over 2.5, current path falls just short at 2.47.

I read these wonderful posts. Each of you has posted about something that means a lot to you..either because you are working on a fitness goal or expressing your gratitude for life.

Today I am inspired because my husband, who does not have a fitness routine, worked intervals on the Elliptical into his X-Box time. He would complete a level, then get on the elliptical for 10 minutes. He'd go back to his game, complete another level, then get on the elliptical for another 10 minutes. He did this for about two hours and got in 40 minutes of exercise. I think a discussion we had with his brother the other day...a casual mention of an increase in deep vein thrombosis in adults who work in sedentary jobs and play a lot of video games...may have been a catalyst.

While he thinks he's in good shape because he stands much of the day (he's a welder/fabricator), a standing job does not provide cardiorespiratory strength or endurance, muscular strength or endurance, or increase his flexibility. He does not do P90X with me, does not go out on the 15-mile rides with me, does not run, rarely comes with me when I walk the dog each morning, and rarely mountain bikes once the temperature gets over 90 degrees. He is trying to start a habit that will help him get healthier but keep him out of the sun (he's a fairskinned redhead who burns easily).

Today I am proud of myself because I bought a pair of Skechers Shape Up shoes to wear to work so I can walk stairs and around the campus on the fitness path. They just switched us to a new dress code where we can wear jeans (unless we're in meetings or have direct customer contact) so I picked up a pair that were designed to look like leather loafers. And since I work on the 6th floor, I can climb the stairs.

I am happy and proud today because my saying I wanted to join the gym has apparently started a firestorm of healthiness in my house. Patch initiated going and buying a book on better eating. She got "Nutrition for Dummies" and already has been reading it! Carlie insisted we schedule the personal trainer appointment when she could be there too, and tonight all 3 of us are going to go work out together. WOOHOO!
