This is my second time around using this website. When I get on a health kick, I always start off with the idea that I'm going to really make a change, and STAY healthy and active! I had stumbled across this website during one such health kick and fell in love! My thoughts: "What..? I can track my food intake and fitness in one place for FREE?! Count me in!"
And that lasted for about 2 weeks before I considered it a daily annoyance to log in and input each and every ounce of food I consumed throughout the day.
And I still feel that way! I am a procrastinator at heart. I push things to the last possible second and don't do more than necessary. Now - I don't mean that I don't prepare myself for other things! I am a hard worker and efficient at my job. I always stay in close contact with my friends and family. I clean my apartment thoroughly. My roommate's cats are well-fed and hydrated. When it comes to things that I need to do for myself - that's when I drop the ball. That's when I say, oh I'll do that tomorrow, I'll have more time then. And that's also when a quick, cheap meal at Mcdonald's sounds appetizing.
Not this time! I need to gain my confidence back. I can feel myself slipping into a dark, self-loathing place. Anyone who knows me, knows that I am all sunshine and rainbows! Nothing about me is dark - except, now, my self-perception. This time - I'm going to be healthy to save myself from..myself! And this is Day 1.
