Okay, so I haven't exercised in over a year and a half and I have felt terrible since stopping! Gained anywhere from 15-20 pounds from eating all the wrong foods and not exercising.
So, I need to lose this weight for good and get to feeling better. I am challanging myself until March 31 to eat clean, gluten free, only healthy foods, lots of water, and minimal sugar (does stevia count as sugar, because that is mainly what I use to sweeten tea and coffee).
Starting slowly back into the exercising with 20 minutes a day, 3 days a week and adding weights on the other days, plus whatever walking I can get in when it is nice outside. We have had a fairly mile winter here in Western PA, so hopefully it continues. I will be getting a new, better bike this spring and hope to get out more than I did last year. I can do this. I want to feel better. I will be 32 in October. When I turned 30, I had my goal of making my healthy weight, but soooooo many things happened that fall. My husband spent 3 days in the hospital for an unknown infection, so that totally gave me health anxiety for anything that happened to me or family. My youngest went to school, so I was by myself for the first time in 10 years, being a sahm that was a big change. Now I am focusing on getting the house cleaned and organized, getting healthy, and being happy for myself and my family and friends. I am going for a massage/chiropractor appt on Thursday, so I am hoping that can help me loosen up and feel better as well.
I am done rambling for now. Going to enjoy this beautiful day, maybe even open a window and get some fresh air!
