Better Life

The jacket fits! The jacket fits! The jacket fits!

I bought a 3x jacket 6 months ago. I tried it on, but it couldn't zip up. Back and forth I went...should I buy it...should I wait. 

Decisions, Decisions, decisions.

I still bought it, because I thought that it would be warm enough when I had to do car duty. I don't normally zip up my jackets, so I figured it would be ok.

This week I saw my husband walking into the room, and thought dang! He has lost over 250 lbs. in the last year. He's looking really good. I thought to myself, he's been over there losing weight, and I've been here barely dropping anything. When I do...it goes on back up again.

On the right is what I fixed for my meals, and the left is my hubster's!
I began to prepare my breakfasts, lunches, and snacks a couple of weeks ago. That seems difficult and hard, but it's really not. This week for breakfast I'm eating sweet potato hash. Lunch is a Mediterranean chicken salad with fresh tabbouleh and tzatziki sauce. My snacks this week are simply hummus with raw veggies and honey/lemon fruit salad (cantaloupe, kiwi, strawberry, banana, and mango). I spend up to 2 hours on Sunday prepping, cooking, and packing. It's one less thing I have to worry about.

Next, I decided that just changing my eating habits wasn't enough. I needed to get up and move.  At school, they began this group for Fitbit wearers. I felt a bit left out, because I couldn't be apart of the weekly challenges--I didn't own a Fitbit--but I changed that! I went and found one that would get me into the "cool kids" group. 🤣 I began by putting 10k steps on my Fitbit. Hmm...it wasn't enough to just do 10k. I passed the track at the high school down the street. Hmm.... I wonder...

Should I stop? Can I get on the track? Is it trespassing?

After 30 minutes of walking, I had put another 2k steps on the tracker. While I was walking, some other people had come to walk. A lady walked up to the bleachers and started up and down. Hmm, that's easy enough I thought. So, I tried 3x..and I thought I was going to die. So, I went back again the next day...and the next... and I did it again today! Since Monday I have walked 53,525 steps.

I feel better...I mean...I'm so friggin' sore...but my spirit is feeling better. I'm hoping to keep up with this. It's been an uphill battle, but I feel like I can do it...and with the support of my work family (and my own family) I can do this!  

After 5 days... my jacket that didn't zip up...zips up. I was so excited. I am still smiling!
