New Goal: 2000 Steps a Day

Here, have a smile.

Hi All, I had to update my step goal.  Last week, I managed to reach my step goal of 3500 steps a day for three days.  My body was pissed off at me on Sunday.  I had also done The Fat Chick Works Out DVD three times.  I spent all day in bed on Sunday and Monday.  I was that sore and worn out.  So instead of stopping exercise all together, I am going to be even more gentle with myself.  I’m going to set my step goal for 2000 steps a day and I’m going to progress to week 2 of The Fat Chick for three days this week.

Eating Well? Kinda of Sort of.

Yeah, I got made up to go grocery shopping. So what?

  So I decided that I would tackle my eating issues by planning out my meals and cooking.  So Saturday I went to Trader Joes and bough a whole lot of salad greens and lentils and brown rice and chicken for a stir fry.  I have largely moved away from ordering in food and fast food.  I have been drinking a lot of water, but I still have occasionally eaten poorly.  I will start logging in my meals on MyFitnessPal so that I can be more aware of my calorie intake.


A Bigger Size

It’s summer and I want some new clothes.  I decided to order about five maxi dresses through  The dresses were cute and cheap.  They arrived on Saturday.  I tried them on and they were all too tight.  I had gone up a size.  That was disappointing.  I immediately mailed the clothes back to the Avenue in order to exchange them for the next size up.  I debated with myself about keeping the smaller size as motivation clothes, but I decided not to.  1. I want to wear some nice summer clothes right now. 2. I don’t want to crash diet or over exercise just in order to fit into some new clothes.  I think that will do more to hurt my wellness journey in the long run.

At least the new sandals fit.
