Happy New Year

Tuesday, January 01, 2013

It seems as though every year I start out with the same resolution for the new year. And here I am again. But this time there is something different. I am not resolving to lose weight, I am resolving to live a healthier lifestyle and this time it means so much more. Why is 2013 different than any other year? Because this year I have decided I want to have a baby and in order for this to happen, I MUST live a healthier lifestyle because quite honestly the deck is stacked against me. I'm over 40 with high blood pressure and pre-diabetic. So this year it's not about losing weight to look good, but living healthier with the hopes of bringing a child of my own into the world. emoticon

I'm going to utilize the tools that are there and not succumb to some crazy weight loss scheme. This year is about a lifestyle change!!!


My Own Worst Enemy

Sunday, April 29, 2012

I'm sitting here frustrated that I have fluctuated between the same 3 or 4 lbs for the last 2 weeks and it hits me...I have not consistently exercised for the past 2 weeks. My birthday was mid-April and since that week I have done little to nothing. I'm signed up for a triathlon in a few weeks, so I'm not sure why I'm doing nothing because I really need to do something. All of my friends are doing some type of exercise program and doing well...I however am sucking at it. I can say it's because I'm doing it alone, etc. But really that makes it worse. I'm getting in my own way. Today I'm starting the Spring Bootcamp Challenge and I plan to stick to it. While I know this will not erase the multiple issues I have (therapy is probably in order) I'm hoping there will be plenty motivation from the other online challengers to keep me going.

So...Day 1 here I come. I'm getting out of my own way. emoticon
