If I am going to start a blog, how about starting on July 4th!?!
Anywho, I thought a blog my help me along this long journey regardless if anyone actually reads this or not.
Basically, I started Spark almost 3 years ago and it did me well for about 3 months. I lost a good amount of weight but for one reason or another, I got away from it. I gained some weight back and didn't think much of it until earlier this year. I finally got fed up with what I was doing and decided to take action!
On Kentucky Derby Day (May 5th & it's a Louisville thing) I decided to start back up on Spark and do this thing right and see it all the way to the finish. I was still down 43 lbs. from my heaviest when I started on May 5th and set a goal to lose 167 lbs. more! I know, it's a lot but I have a lot to lose. Plus, I'm 6'7" so trust me, I have it to lose! Even if I do lose that, I won't be skinny by any means! 167 lbs. will put me at a good number that I haven't seen since college or about 12 years ago!
I'm a single father of 3. I am doing this for my 3 kids (Evan, Calli, & Sydni) so they will hopefully have their father longer. I am doing this for myself because...because damn it! This is what I want!
This will be a long journey. The will be my odd-yssey! I lost 33.9 lbs. in 6 weeks + since May 5th starting back on Spark. I did not work out, it was just eating right. I wanted to lose some weight to make it easier to workout on my joints. I did, and now I just finished day 4 of the Insanity workout! Feeling good and 133.1 lbs. to go!
I CAN do it.
I WILL do it!
