It’s never a good sign when you set a date for healthier living and your period starts the same day. It’s like Mother Nature calling your bluff. Granted, my cravings are down so that’s something. I am being good overall but my activity level is low. In any case. I’m aiming for increased self care this month and Master wants to see me get to the fitness room 3 times this week. I know I can do that.
As a part of the self care goal I want to get into painting my nails on a regular basis. I’d also like to stop procrastinating and wax my eyebrows too. Makeup needs to become a regular habit also. I guess, essentially, I want to get girlie again. It makes me feel good and I know that goes a long way to achieving a lot when you feel good about yourself.
Master is sick. When Kiva visited a couple days ago she was just getting over the crud and well, he caught it. I’m avoiding him as best as I can to not get it myself but who knows. It would just put another wrench in the plans wouldn’t it. First period, then getting sick? Let’s hope not.
My starting weight is 367.5. I’m ashamed I’ve let myself get so bad. I wear a size 32 pant. Master would like to see me at the weight I was when we met. I wore a size 22 then. That’s 5 sizes. And that’s a lot. But it’s doable. I know I’m saying it now, and I know I’ll have to say it constantly but I must do this. Health is important and my weight is impacting it and our relationship.
You know all the get started exercise programs that are firing up this week? Well, if only there were a before this program, program for me. I’m going from sedentary to some movement and most of these plans assume you’ve got some ability in you before you start. So, my goal is to start with 15 mins on whatever cardio machine is open at the fitness room tomorrow (they aren’t open today). I can use the Elliptical and the Arc at my current weight. I want to get to 30 mins by the end of the month. If I reach it before then I’m going for 45. That’s where I’d like to maintain until I can use the treadmill too. It has a weight limit of 325lbs.
I’m working on a lot of updates and revisions to things on Submissive Guide this week. I’ve been going through old posts and fixing titles that are terribly constructed or don’t tell the reader what the post is really about. Some of it is SEO and some of it is just plain telling what they reader is going to read. Far too many posts are just a topic title like “checklists” or “sub space” without anything else. It worked fine for 1990′s internet and searches, but it needs to be more specific now. I’m also making a long list of posts that will need updates, expansions, and revisions. And there are a lot of them. I suppose this year is more about updating than it is about new content. I’ll be reducing what I write on the site so that I can do that work. I also have a 1st draft of a book to finish and then edit. I’d like to get that done by April.
I’m into my new bullet journal that Master got my for my birthday in October so hopefully, I’ll be able to be as productive as I need to be to get stuff done and still have time for fun.
Breakfast was 3 scrambled eggs in olive oil, 1/2 slice American cheese and 2 pieces of whole grain Gluten Free toast, no butter (I put the eggs on the toast like a sandwich) I also had a cup of coffee with creamer.
Lunch, that I’m eating right now, is a chef salad with hard boiled egg, 2 pieces of bacon and cheddar cheese. Low sugar French dressing on top with some sunflower seeds. Yummy. Water to drink.
Dinner is up in the air, but I think it’s going to be more breakfast foods, maybe an omelet with mushrooms and that other half of American cheese.
Calorie count looks like I’ll be right around 1600 for the day. Note on my foods. I’m not following any sort of diet plan. Just watching my portions, snacking far less and choosing healthier options for older poor choices.
But that’s it for today.
