2014 is the year for change

I am on my way back to myself. In December I went to Irongirl for my 4th year. I was feeling down after, especially after seeing pictures from the event. You see in years past I was thinner and happier. I had fun and loved seeing my friends, but there was this sad feeling in the background that kept nagging at me. This was my wake-up call.

I am on my way back to myself. In December I went to Irongirl for my 4th year. I was feeling down after, especially after seeing pictures from the event. You see in years past I was thinner and happier. I had fun and loved seeing my friends, but there was this sad feeling in the background that kept nagging at me. This was my wake-up call. When I got back home I started changing my lifestyle. It was little steps at a time. I lost 8 lbs that first month through Christmas and the holidays. Weight loss slowed for a couple of months. Meanwhile I started fitness classes and found a wonderful support group. It wasn't easy working full-time and having my four children, but I had to take time for myself for my future. I am down 25 lbs as of May 2014.

Monthly Updates:

June 28, 2014: Most of this month has been a little rocky for me. The beginning of the month I was struggling with losing any weight and getting frustrated. Still doing my fitness classes but my eating was not as good. This past week I finally got my act together again and am losing. I am down 3 more lbs and 28.4 lbs total.

May 18, 2014: Still going strong. Weight loss has picked up some. I have now lost 25 lbs. Have been doing better with my nutrition and reducing calorie intake. I am definitely getting stronger. This month my fitness buddies and I started a plank challenge too and I can finally do burpees (even though I still dislike them).

April 23, 2014: Another month down. I have reached a milestone this week: 20 lbs lost. Starting to feel stronger emotionally and physically!

March 14, 2014: Its been a month of exercise class. I recently ordered some new workout DVDs to keep me busy on days I don't have classes. I am getting excited about fitness again. I signed up for Mudderella in Oct. I really need to get stronger, build endurance, and lose this weight. Its a good motivator!

With my fitness on track my goal is to work on my eating. I want the same focus and excitement about cooking and nutrition.

Feb 11, 2014: This year I am pushing myself to be stronger, faster, and build endurance. I don't want to wait years for changes, I am changing my mind and body now. This isn't the same journey as before. I have new goals and dreams and I am dreaming big.

I took a risk and went to my first fitness class. I found not only accountability but support and a renewed enthusiasm for fitness and health.

Jan 2014: Its a new year. I have struggled the past 20 months, trying to get back to my "happy" weight. Its been an uphill battle with life getting in the way. I am in a good place at the first of 2014. I know I will be able to reach my goals this year. I miss having energy. I miss liking my pictures. I am ready to get back to the girl I am supposed to be. Onward and upwards 2014!
