What else can i do.....?

So about a month ago I started working out and really watching what I was eating. I haven't skipped a day on the elliptical. For that, I am really proud of myself. It has helped me become for of a morning person. It hasn't completely converted me but I am a lot better than I was before. Just ask Jeff. I have trying to count calories and trying not to over eat. For the life of me though i can not loose any weight. It is really sad. Now the real reason I started this was I just wanted to me healthier. That hasn't changed but I thought a byproduct would be some weight loss. I refuse to deprive myself of all things I enjoy but on a whole I have really cut back. I am starting to get really frustrated. I just hope that shortly it will start to just fall off but I am not holding by breath.

This past week has been a work out.

So I have started working out. I am really proud of myself and I am on day 10. Now, that might not sound that exciting but for me it is awesome. My goal is to go at least 21 days in the attempt to form a exercise habit. I am just tired of doing nothing and being unhappy with how I look and feel. But mostly I started working out to be healthier. It has been a struggle some mornings I really don't want to get up and do anything but i have to stick with it. I just have too........
My work out routine consists of Yoga on the Wii Fit and then 20 mins on the elliptical.

School is going okay, I really like the class and feel like I learning something.....I guess we will see after the first test. :)

I had the most wonderful day yesterday. It was the first really nice day that fell on the weekend. It was in the 60s and there was only a slight breeze. I went walking on the Green Way. The Green Way is walkway/bike path that follows Stones River. There were so many people out yesterday. From the young to old to ones with 4 legs. It was just beautiful to see so may people outside enjoying nature. People were riding bike, roller blading, skate boarding, jogging, walking and I even was on kid on Roller Skates. That's right old fashion roller skates with 4 wheels. I haven't seen those in years. I just had a overwhelming since of joy that filled my heart seeing all the people.

One small sad thing about being there though.......but I think I can turn it into a positive. As I was walking i decides to take a break on some rocks next to the river. While i was enjoying the sound of the rushing water and the way the sun cut though the trees hitting the water, I turned my head to see a bunch of trash that had washed up on the bank. It was really sad to see but, today i call the parks department and they have clean up groups. I am going to try to get involved.

Here is a question I am going am going to though out there......Are photo less blog post acceptable? My goal was to post a photo with every blog post but this week i really don't have anything. Does it make it less interesting? I just don't know.......

For this upcoming week, I am taking tomorrow off to go with my mom for a small surgical procedure. Jen and I are going to go shopping for wedding dress this Saturday. I am going to continue working out. It is going to be a great week!!!!
