After looking over previous blog entries I find myself hesitant to create a new "plan" for the current challenge. If I remember correctly I've been around 18 BLC challenges.
So what's different? I'm heavier, yep heavier than when I started this journey. I'm not as fit, I feel old and I continue to bomb time after time.
This evening while waiting in line at Chipotle there was another woman of color standing in front of me. Her legs were so swollen mine started to ache. I thought to myself this could be you if you don't finally get your weight under control.
I also had to purchase an outfit for a conference tomorrow and all I could see was fat. Gut, butt, jiggly arms, etc.. you get the visual.
Ok now that's I've dumped all the negative emotions I will get back to my plan.
Really basic, really simple.
I want to lose 15 pounds. Considering my current weight that's totally doable.
I want to get back to being able to walk 7 miles at one time. I know my hips will ache, my shins won't be happy but long distance walking has always kept my thighs under control.
Treat my body with respect. That means stop the madness with the sugar, eating out and random munching. I know what to do.
Now's the time to just do it!!
