Well I now am without excuse...

Thursday, February 23, 2012

I've spent a good part of the last two years bemoaning my job taxing all my time.

WEll last month the hotel I managed burnt down and I'm working only part time at home now. So I have no excuse for not getting back into shape.

I quit smoking on Christmas day and this saturday it will be 2 months, which is good, but I'm up 15 pounds from my goal weight which is not good. I have to take action now.

My daughter is getting married in June and I want to look fabulous.

So rather than bemoaning how sad it is about the hotel and how lost I feel. I'm going to see it as an opportunity to not only get back in shape again, but I've set myself a new lower goal weight. My original goal weight was 155, today I weighed in at 168. I've decided to go for a goal weight of 140 pounds. I'm not sure...I might not look good at that weight, if I start to look scrawny I 'll stop before that, but I think I might like 140 pounds.

So I'm back in the thick of it, I have no more excuses.

Lets spark on people, and make our goals come true...It can be done...I've done it before and I'll do it again. BAby steps.
