It's been quite a while since I've really been active on Spark. I just read my last blog entry. I had a goal to be at 180 by July 2014. Well its September 2014 and I've only lost 4 pounds since December. I'm currently at 252 and obviously not anywhere near my goal.
I've really let life get in the way, and got quite lazy about trying to get healthier. I've allowed the "pleasure" of eating what I want and doing things other than exercise rule my life for the past 8 months.
I really regret the wasted opportunity I had to lose the weight. I could be at my ultimate goal right now and instead I'm exactly where I've started. I really have to quit letting life pass me by.
So I'm resetting my goals and getting back on the ball. I'm not expecting perfection from myself, just consistent effort.
Today was not perfect, I over ate by about 1000 calories. I miss my hubby (he's away on business) and I came home from work and had a mini binge/pity party. I had plans all day to work out but all I wanted to was eat and sleep. Instead I pulled myself out of the slump, mowed the lawn and got my workout in.
I feel good about that. It wasn't perfect but it was a good start. Tomorrow can be better, I just have to keep trying.
I'll end my blog tonight with my goals and some of my motivations.
My goal is to lose 62 lbs by my 26th birthday, which is March 11th. That will put me at 190 pounds. (Ha I totally just realized 62 is 26 backwards lol)
Babies have been put off until 2015 probably in the fall. In part because I didn't lost any weight but also because Dan and I are really just enjoying being married and spending time together and we've decided not to rush babies. We are going to take next summer and make it our "Summer of Fun".
We've got lots of plans. Myrtle Beach, Niagara Falls, season passes to Cedar Fair Amusement parks, and whatever other fun things we can come up with. It's going to be our year/summer to just grow our relationship and enjoy each other.
I really want to meet my goals so I can enjoy our "Summer of Fun" to the fullest. I want to be happy with myself and I want Dan to be proud of me.
