I'm feeling fine like cherry wine as I work my way to a slimmer and healthier life. I've been working really hard and eating some awesome salads. I feel great that my family has joined me so that they can also lose a few pounds with me. Being able to inspire them is one of the best things I could do. Plus having a buddy to work out with is good to keep my spirits high. I this moment I went from a 278 to a 267 with is amazing because I didn't think I could do it and I had my doubts about even trying. But now I'm reading the back of labels and doing my research so that I could do I can eat healthy. It was pretty tough at first with preparing your food and not drinking soda at all. The sugar that used to energize my tank was gone and I needed to replace it. It was hard feeling like you were starving and craving a cookie or a Coca Cola with ice. I've resisted and it has help me a lot and my family. They are now buying their own running shoes and thinking about what they eat. Which is hard if you grew up in a Mexican family with all our food being extra tasty. Not only that but this Monday is memorial day and the food is going to be off the hook with the grill out. I think that will be my first challenge in portion control. Running is fun and I never thought I would say that because you see runners of all sizes and they seem not to be having fun. I realize now is that they are focus to reach their goals and one thing that I'm always curious about is what they are listening to on their iPods. What music get you pump and going as you hit the first mile and begin the next. I love all kinds of music and my favorite song to listen to when I begin is"Under the Stars" the opening theme from the anime Hajime No Ippo awesome song. Well other than that I love to run with my music on. The other thing I'm doing is the Wii fit and that is the bested games ever and a great work out for me. I hope I lose more I need to be 225 and my new goal for the next 2 day is from 267 to 260 I think I could do it. Oh yeah I need to paint as well and do some fun art for you guys to see so I will work on that as well.
