Didn't get up for Turbo Kick this morning, guess I needed the sleep. I think I'm starting to get used to exercise, I missed it, that's a change. :) Now if I can just get the 'food thing' under control. I ran a bunch of errands today. When I was done, I was going to stop by McDonald's for a bottle of water and maybe an ice cream cone? I called J to see if wanted anything, and he talked me out of it, told me that ice cream is on the 'naughty' list and goes against my efforts at Shake & Shed. He was right, but I did notice myself getting a little 'tude about it. *sigh*
I left McD's & headed toward the interstate to come home. Just before I get on the on ramp, I remember Dairy Queen up ahead, so I changed lanes and headed straight. I got to the light near DQ and say out loud "What am I doing??", and proceed to do a U-turn and head back to I90, mini-Blizzard-free.
My final errand was to pick up a gas card for a friend, so I went to Kwik Trip, gas station/mini market. I walked around to see what else it was that I wanted to get, I only needed the gas card, by the way...and I find the cheese-filled bread sticks in the warmer. They are super yummy...and I caved and bought them. And ate them on the way to my friend's house. I guess they're better than M&M's, chocolate covered pretzels or peanuts, but I know they're not good either.
I guess I've had such a co-dependant relationship with food for so long, it's gonna take some time...but I need to get serious and kick the food addiction to the curb. It's time to eat to live rather than live to eat!!

The only way I can explain the fact that I joined a gym a few weeks ago is God. Not only did I join, but I have actually been attending classes. I have my little gym bag packed in the car to set myself up for success. I don't have 1000 lbs to lose, obviously, but the quote 'a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step' is my inspiration.
I got on the Wii Fit a couple of weeks back, my Wii Fit age was 40. I got on this past weekend, and it told me my Wii Fit age was 20!! Not sure exactly what that means, but I must be doing something right.
I'm still working on the whole "diet" part of the equation. I don't plan on "going" on a diet, I mean diet as in the food I eat. My therapist said it perfectly, I need to think about the food that will fuel my body. I don't put "cheap gas" in my car, and I feed the cats "the good stuff" from PetSmart, why should my cats and car eat better than me?
Part of my "journey" is to get enough sleep, so I need to end this here. Thanks for joining me on this journey. I think it's gonna be an exciting adventure!
