The Error of My Ways
Tuesday, June 26, 2012
Last year this time I was enjoying success in Onderland. That actually didn't last long. I went on a cruise with my DH in July and ate, ate, and ate some more. Midnight buffets every night. Food galore! When we returned, I did not return to my good habits. I continued to spiral out of control. I tried to restart with eating healthy and exercising but I just couldn't get motivated to do it. Fast forward to May 2012. I have had lots of false starts up til that point. I hadn't weighed myself in so long because I knew I wouldn't like what I saw. I decided to just see where I was. 232 pounds. Wow! That's all I could say. Wow! I had gained 40 pounds in 1 year. But what is really say is that I gained 25 of those pounds by November 2011. Well, I can truly say that 232 is the most I have ever weighed even through 2 pregnancies.
This is definitely how I feel. So after weighing myself in May, I decided I had to do something and do it quick because I was headed for disaster. I started eating better, still not totally where I used to be. I exercised once. What a joke. I lost 5 pounds since May and now. I went grocery shopping this morning and stocked up on everything I need to get to work with my eating habits. I exercised this morning. And not something easy. TurboFire 30. I tried to come up with excuses why I shouldn't do it this morning. Like I'll just start tomorrow. Well, I dropped the excuse because tomorrow never comes. As of today I am fully committed to getting to a healthy weight and eating healthy. There is no turning back this time. No excuses. Here we go!
