Here we are again at the beginning. I like to think of it as a beginning and end.... End of the bad stuff and the self-defeating talk and actions and the beginning of the rest of my life. I know, I know.... I've said it before and I keep trying. That's a positive, right? However, this time.... different. I knew exactly when I was going to do then, I had everything planned out and ready. The cupboards cleared, work and home displaying positive reinforcements and I have told EVERYONE around me what I'm doing. Today not only did I start back on the best lifestyle change I could make for myself, but I took it up a notch. I quit smoking today! I've had a couple cravings, but I had a plan to keep my mouth away from the cigarettes and the food. I'm tracking my food and fitness here, I have a nutritionist and a friend who is a fitness trainer who has offered to help me along the way. When I walked into today, I was prepared. I know what's at stake, I know what I need to do to be a healthier better me. I'm gonna throw in becoming a positive person towards my goals. My first goal isn't all that big I just want to stay strong for one week, watch what I'm putting in my mouth and make sure the smoke is left behind and do all of that with the best smile I can. I'm not expecting perfection (my smile might turn once or twice), but if I can just keep the forward momentum this is it! This is my time to Shine!
My quote for this week is: Failures do what is tension relieving and WINNERS DO WHAT IS GOAL ACHIEVING!!!!

So I took a few days off.... Felt like weeks, but it apears it was just a few day!! Woo Hoo!!! So I had some major issues with family, work, and life so I took a mental break to try to get myself all put back together again.... So tomorrow night I'm cleaning out the cabinets and the fridge then heading to the grocery store. Chicken, fruits, veggies, whole grains, and nuts to just get our house set up for some healthy living. I've gained now to 279. I refuse to find 300. My skin around my knees is starting to droop, wow saw that last night and realized what a horribile thing I'm doing to my body. Then I have zero energy, can't sleep well because i cant get comfortable. My ankles are swelling every night. I'm on my way to a really bad place....
Now the good stuff. I have Spark People, a supportive family, and some great friends (both here and at home), I have some awesome co-workers that are jumping in with me just to be supportive. I have everything going for me right now to make me a success. So I'm back, didn't get quite as lost as I thought I was. I'm still here and kicking, walking, and I'm gonna do this....
Go!!! I'm screaming it from the rooftop... "I am not going to be unhealthy anymore! I am worth it! I am going to be a success!!!
