Well they say that what is important is not falling it is getting back up. So here I go, again.
In the year 2013, I lost 60 pounds trough a gym challenge. I kept it off for most of the year until august vacation where I started to take days off. Enjoying food a bit more then usual. Eating my emotions instead of going for exercises. I gained back 40 pounds and I am really discouraged. Not at the gain but at myself for doing this again.
I loved being lighter. I loved shopping for clothes at the "regular" stores. I loved trying on a dress and knowing that it would fit in large. I was down to medium size in shirts. It felt good. I was getting compliments. I was feeling healthy. I was full of energy.
I WANT TO GO BACK THERE.
So here it is, january 1st and I am recommiting. I do sound like a broken record. And I am fed up of saying this.But I will eat healthy, I will exercise daily and strenght train 3 times a week. I just have to get back in the routine. I know I can do it.
I am such in awe of all the beautiful ladies on here who succeed in keeping it off. They are so strong. I admire them.
I have a motivation, in 96 days I am going on the first cruise of my life with my hubby. And it is a progressive rock cruise with Marillion, Yes and so many others musicians. We are going to Cozumel, Mexico. I can't wait. Cruise to the edge on the MSC Divina. Then in april 2015, my fourth daughter is getting married in the Dominican Republic. So there we go. If I am not important enough to myself to get healthy, I sure am important enough for my daughter to be proud of me when she looks at her wedding photos.
Happy new year to all the beautiful ladies.

It has been so warm but mostly thundery with lots and lots of rain. Ended up with 5 days of none exercise, with the rain, the thunder and all the family visits and activities that went on. Gained back 4 pounds. I need to prioritize my exercise routine.
So for the last 2 days, I have been going for my bike ride as soon as I get up. Finally back in the routine. It feels good.
Even after 4 months of this, I still don't know how to put myself first. Because I am a mother? Because I am a woman? Because I was raised in a catholic environment? not sure but I need to know for a fact that it is not selfish to think of my well being by taking time to exercise.
I know we learn every day of our lives because when we don't learn anymore it is because we have achieve perfection and then we move on to another life. I know I am far from perfection but still, you would think that certain lesson are LEARNED after all this time.... Baby steps, baby steps...

I look at this photo as often as I can. I would say to motivate me but I am really motivated. For a month now I have been doing everything to continue losing weight. And it is working. I do 2 hours of exercice 6 times a week. I go for bike ride, I take walk with my lovey, I go to do laps at the pool 3 times a week, I do the kettlebell dvd 2 times a week. And I eat healthy. I have points allowance and I use them sparingly.
Again, not sure where the motivation comes from but I will take advantage of it.
Keep moving beautiful ladies and have a beautiful day.
