So today began Operation Get Healthy!
I have no goal weight in mind...really I don't want to focus on it too much...but my starting weight is 193.0. Yep that's right...I just typed out my weight for the world to see. I weigh more than my husband...about 40 lbs more! That is sad. And depressing. But that is going to change.
Last night we went to Sake, a sushi restaurant in Jacksonville. I had a glass of Japanese plum wine and BJ and I shared two rolls and an order of sashimi. And we tried eel for the first time. (For the record...I will not be eating that again!) Oh and I cannot forget the sake and green tea ice cream. It was all so delish...well except for the eel. During dinner we were talking about our next steps and how we wanted to proceed. That lead to the discussion of how I wanted to be able to get in shape. I wanted to start running...with a goal of running a 5K at some point. If we cycle in June, that gives me about 2 months to get healthy...August gives me 4 months. We made the decision to cycle in August...I want to be healthy and have a healthy pregnancy.
So we went to a sporting goods store after dinner and I got fitted for my first pair of running shoes! And today we went for our first run...2 miles. I did not run the whole time but I can say now (about 1 1/2 hours later!) that I feel good. I am also going to get my big ol' butt to the gym on base...might as well take advantage of those perks of being in the Navy! They offer some classes during the week and I thought it might be fun to try some out and help build my stamina. Hopefully I will find some fun classes and some of my new girlfriends here will want to join me...hint, hint. ;)
So the plan for the weekend (yay a long one for BJ!) is to get some flowers for the planters and beds. Do some grocery shopping for healthy foods. Go get a second chaise lounger for the backyard and a small table for in between. (We have one lounger that we just got for me but the hubs likes it so we need one for him!) I hope everyone has a great weekend and a wonderful Easter....I understand that my family is thinking of having an adult Easter hunt. No eggs...mini bottles of alcohol instead! God, I miss being home!
