So I had planned to post this blog on Saturday, but Saturday ended up being quite a busy day for me and Sunday was even busier!
I have really fallen off the wagon this year. My life changes completely threw me for a loop and I have yet to really get back on track. Iíve been posting blogs all year saying that I was going to get back with it, but nothing ever happened. I fell into a serious lazy streak. But I have no HAD ENOUGH. Iíve had enough of being out of breath just from bending over to tie my shoes. Iíve had enough embarrassment of having to have 2 Six Flags employees push down on the bar on my favorite roller coaster just to get it to lock. Iíve had enough of having to buy bigger and bigger clothes.
I decided to wipe my slate clean and start over on November 1. This is my FINAL do-over. I am re-committing myself to a healthy lifestyle. I am re-committing myself to Sparkpeople and the 10k A Day team that I am a leader of. I am re-committing myself to ME! I want to be healthy. I want to be able to bend without smooshing my insides. I want to ride The Batman & Screaminí Eagle without embarrassment.
I am very thankful for a SP friend of mine who invited me to a friendly Fitbit Weekend Warriors Challenge. It really jumpstarted my desire to get healthy. I found myself walking in place in order to stay in 1st place. Going to Six Flags all day yesterday really kept me going and I ended up being the Champion with over 21,000 steps in 2 days! I cannot tell you the last time that I stood around walking in place in order to get my step count up.
Iíve also gone to a running store, True Runner, and purchased a lovely pair of tennis shoes that actually fit my feet properly and will help with a small heel issue Iíve been having. I wore them all weekend and they were super comfortable. I had a bit of pain late in the day yesterday, but heckÖwho wouldnít after getting in so many steps in just 2 days?! Especially a person who hasnít really exercised in months! :)
I donít have a definite plan/schedule on how I want to accomplish my goals. I just know that it includes more exercise, more Sparkpeople, and less candy!

Greeting my friends.
I've spent a lot of time thinking since I posted my blog yesterday. I was having a pretty rough day yesterday and I let a lot of things get me down. Things were just not going well financially and my weight was up. I woke up this morning with another email from my bank and I thought, "ugh, here we go again", but I made a plan and things WILL get better. My plan may be frowned upon by most, so I've chosen not to post about it, but trust me, it's nothing illegal! :)
As for the weight gain, my good friend TRAVELGRRL got onto me about a few things, and got me thinking about the person I used to be. So as of today I will be starting a new 10 minutes of daily fitness streak. I will take my stack of blank post-it notes to track each day. I'll also take a picture of each post-it note and post it on my blog, so you all can help keep me accountable. My first round of exercise won't be until I get home - cause I wore a dress to work today. So look for my first post-it note pic tomorrow!
Thanks so much to all my SP friends for everything! :)

So I apparently have a seriously distorted view of being healthy & weight loss. After being so good a couple weeks ago (eating healthy, tracking, exercising, and losing 4 lbs) I apparently thought that was enough and I went right back to eating terrible and not exercising. My official weigh-in day is tomorrow, but I peaked this morning and am back up 3.5 lbs. Instead of getting back with the program today, I have done nothing but shove junk food in my face. Why do I always sabotage myself? In what world does eating well for 1 week undo all the bad eating of the past 20+ years?
I'm just not sure what I'm going to do with myself. I am so tired of all the ups & downs, but I guess I'm not really willing to do what it takes to do anything about it.
This isn't a "feel sorry for me" blog, it's just the facts. Something has to change. I'm just not sure what it is, or how to do it. I know what I "should" do, it's just a matter of getting myself to do it...

So I'm down 4 lbs from last week, I've been exercising more, and I've been eating less. Oh, and I've been spending way more time on SP. Things finally feel like they are "normal" again.
The new job is going well. I've been getting high praises from clients, my boss, the owner, and some of my co-workers. I know there's still a lot to learn, but luckily my co-workers have been in the travel industry FOREVER and have so much knowledge that it's ridiculous!
Now, my next task is to thoroughly clean my apartment. It's so gross! It needs to be cleaned from top to bottom. I'm hoping to work on it a little bit at a time throughout the month of August. Hmmm, 31 days to clean my apartment. Sounds doable, right?!
Anyway, that's it for today. Things are good!
