Last night I went to bed hungry and today I woke up hungry and grumpy.  I am on Day 4 of my diet but only beginning Day 2 of Jenny Craig.  The food is super yummy but my body is just so used to eating more.  I was dreaming of food and even thought about giving up today and just eating what I wanted to.  

I woke up at 5:45 am again and did the treadmill but today I walked for 2 minutes and then ran for 4 minutes until I hit 1 mile.  That is the most I have ever ran at a time.  I usually do 2 and 2 and then yesterday I did 2 walking and 3 running.  My goal is to run a mile.  That would be a great feeling for me.  I'm not much of a runner.  Anyway, after I was done on the treadmill I went to the gym and worked on my lower body.  I'm pretty sore all over today.  I'm trying to see the light at the end of the tunnel but I just barely entered so I know that it is not in sight yet.  

I can do it!!  I know I can!  It's just food, I need to remember that.  I am going to upload a video and some pics so I know what I looked like at the beginning of my journey.  


  1. When I was doing WW I remember the facilitator saying something that really hit home and that I still remember to this day, "the only thing you can control, fully control, in life is what you put in your mouth". It helped me, maybe it will help you! I found when I did WW i actually ended up going to bed earlier then normal so that I wouldn't get hungry again. then later on I'd eat really low calorie snacks to hold me over.

    Good luck!!

  2. okay you inspired me to start now too! I just weighed myself and I'm 157.5 lbs, I'm going to do WW and we can compare our progress and results - that is if you are okay with that and want another peep?

  4. That is a great way to start running. I am working on running a marathon and some days I run 5 minutes and walk 3 on a good incline for an hour. It is great for bringing your heart rate up and down the get a good calorie burn. You can do it Keep it up girl.

  5. I just think running/walking on a treadmill is so boring. lol! I'd rather be dancing!
