Just Do Something

I woke up this morning not having to be back to work until 6pm. I planned to just have a lazy day all day. Knowing I was gonna have to be at work a 12 hour shift all night long I knew I would wake up early, but then planned to nap later. Well... I did wake up around 8 moved to the couch then back to bed and ended up not getting up till 1pm. I turned on the tv, played with Shadow my roommates dog, and then just thought to my self what should I do.My boyfriend told me in our conversation before bed last night that since I have a lot of time I should go to the gym, so I looked outside it was all rainy I am like yeah not so much. I made some chicken salad for lunch. I have been doing good all week with my eating by the way. As I laid there though I kept thinking to myself get up Gail. When I decided to jump back into my journey I reached out to my friend Amy. All I kept remembering today was in her message saying "you just gotta do something, just something.!" So I got up put on my workout clothes and turned on the TV went to Comcast on demand and did a 30 min cardio workout. I feel so much better already about myself that I just didn't lay there all day. So my advice for you today is.. Just do something!! Anything!

Finally Sunday

Man its been such a looooong weekend. I had to work fri-sun very long shifts. I am happy to say only two and a half more hours and I am outta here. Yay for two days off.

21 day water challenge update. I have successfully drank one gallon of water for the past four days. I found this app to use on my iPhone, so I don't have to keep adding all day no matter what size cup or bottle I use. It helps me know how much I have to go for the rest of the day.

I hope everyone had a great weekend!!

21 Day Water Challenge

How much water should you drink a day?? There are so many different answers to this question. I spent a lot of time googling this. Many different answers like women need 2.2 liters, 9, 8 oz cups per day for 72 oz, multiply your weight by 2/3. The list goes on and on. My doctor recently told me to divide your weight in half. There are many articles that use this half your body weight formula. For me any water at this point is good. I used to be so good at it. Now I'm lucky to drink two glasses. 

They say it takes about 21 days to create a habit. I am starting today to drink at least gallon of water per day. 128oz. Anyone wanna take this 21 day challenge with me???

Savannah, Ga

Oh how I love the city of Savannah. Last week my man and I spent three wonderful days there. We totally acted like tourist the whole time.. It is a great city, but sharing it with such an important person in your life is priceless.

4 Miles

Every other Monday is usually a day off for me. That day is usually a Kay and Gail day. Sunday I got a text that said 4 mile walk on the beach tomorrow??? I thought to myself ummm really??? Funny thing is a year ago that would have never been my response. I was so active and just in the working out zone and just loving my new over 160 pound weigh tloss self that I successfully worked at for two years then kept off a while. This month will be four years for my whole journey. I feel successful cause I am still over 100 pounds down but not where I should be. It was just amazing to have a friend that loves me so much to be blunt with me and challenge me. That's a true friend.

We successfully completed a four mile walk on the beach.  My feet are on FIRE!!!! I woke up this morning feeling great. I do have two blisters, but no pain, no gain!! Having a good support system is the number one thing that makes it work for me. Love you my friend!!!
