Of the Earth

Yesterday was the last day of Earth® Exer-Walk™ Challenge.   I’m late on posting because I went to the Home and Housewares Show in Chicago (more on that later), and I made the worst, biggest, horribly vain mistake ever: I didn’t wear my sneakers. I wanted to wear my boots to be all ‘Oh look at my sexy legging clad legs with my sexy leather slouch boots.’ You know, the legs whose muscles are definitely more firm because of the Exer-Walk™ sneakers!

The legs attached to the feet that were hurting from said sexy leather slouch boots.

Boy, am I dumb or what?  I totally should have brought my sneakers and just kicked it in jeans.  I think I said this, out-loud,  like forty-seven million times, too.

I’ve lost a few pounds this month.  Nothing monumental, but it’s a start.   To be exact, I’ve lost 3.8lbs.   I’ve exercised–even though my knee hurt–and I’ve made other changes to my diet.  Over the past (almost) three weeks I’ve only eaten meat twice (and one time was because I just wasn’t about to pass up filet mignon, yo.)

I’ve cut my fat intake drastically, all by switching to a more plant based diet, though I am still eating dairy.  And, it’s made a HUGE difference in my blood sugar levels.

This weight-loss, health journey has just started.  I know there will be times that I eat meat, or chocolate, or cheesecake.  I know there will be times that I opt for boots over sneakers.  I know there will be times that my knee will hurt too much to exercise.  But, I’m going to keep trying, and I won’t give up.

Different. Like Me!

A while back I wrote about experiencing high blood sugar symptoms.  I wrote about how I heard my body whisper as if it were a maddening roar.

Yesterday I wrote, on Aiming Low, about my personal struggle with feeling like a “skinny girl” despite knowing that I am indeed not one.

Pictures don’t lie.

Neither do test results.

I have been on Metformin for almost 3 weeks now, despite adamantly not wanting to be, and while I still eat sugar, at times, I have been limiting it.   I’ve also been watching what kind of carbohydrates I eat, save the occasional baked potato.   I go back on March 1st to see what my new levels are.   They are also going to test my thyroid.

Yesterday I got a pair of Earth® Exer-Walk™ sneakers.  I will be wearing them daily, for one month, to see what kind of results I get, as part of the ‘Change Your Body in 30 Days’ challenge.  I normally don’t wear shoes in the house, but I am going to wear these.  I am also committing myself to 30 minutes of walking (if not more) and I also want to incorporate Wii Fit and/or Leslie Sansone’s Walk Away the Pounds.  All while wearing my new kicks.

Small steps, they say.

I have to start somewhere.  I’ve been at the starting gate before.  I’m familiar with it.

And…I’m off!
