Last week I walked for a total of 160 minutes. My fitness is improving and so are my eating habits. It has been a struggle to walk, because I was tired but once I got out I felt better. I can’t wait until summer so I can get started with running. It’s the end of week 2, that means it’s time to change my activity routine from walking to Jillian Michaels Fitness Ultimatum. I’m going to add weight lifting to the plan too 🙂

Currently I’m reading Diet Survivor’s Handbook and it made me realized I had been reading the wrong books in the past! Diet Survivor’s Handbook is about breaking out the yo yo diet cycle. I’m learning about relationship with food, ending the overeating/binging cycle, self acceptance, and self care. I eat when I’m hungry, and not when the clock or someone else tell me to eat every 2-3 hours. I’ll post a review on the book soon.

I said to myself, I want to lose weight because of health but in the back of my mind I was thinking about losing weight awfully a lot. But live healthy means doing things that are beneficial to my health without looking at the scale for validation.

    You are doing great. Eventually all of these healthy choices will add up and lead to a nice loss.
