Well I haven't blogged in a while & have been off SP for a while also. So let me do a recap... Might be a LONG RECAP..LOL..
Well currently I am at my highest weight that I've ever been in my life. In April, things at my job become very overwhelming. We have had 4 people resign in our office & I was then promoted to take over a management position; however, we have not replaced the lost positions b/c my office is closing next year & they are not hiring any people.
So this means that around April, I began working 12 hour days for like 5-6 days a week. This means I put myself on the back burner. Work became my main focus & priority b/c the office was depending on me to get all of this work done considering no one else had done the work before. So now I am currently at 250 pounds. This is a shock but then it's not b/c I have not been working out & eating poorly ~ eqals weight gain!!!
Well I decided that I could no longer go on this way. I started back in Bootcamp this week & take simple steps in my life right now. I decided this week I would aim to do 3 days of boot camp. I decided that I can no longer make excuses for not working out. If I am going to work long days, then I MUST make myself workout in the morning before work ~ no questions or EXCUSES!!
Now I wish I would've made this choice 3 months ago but I am okay with that b/c NOW I AM MAKING A DECISON TO CHANGE. I have been having some health issues as a result of my recent weight gain & that's a wake up call also, that this weight is not good for me & really impacting my health & life.
This extra weight gain has impacting my breathing at times, my mate says it causes me to snore more & he worries about my sleeping now, it is impacting my feet (noticed my feet hurt in heels now).. I love to wear heels. The one good thing is my BP was okay but I know that if I continue that my BP & other things will start to happen. So I know it's July & I still have plenty of time to make the rest of 2012 a good year.
I also decided that when I get engaged, go dress shopping that I want to have great pictures to remember also.
So it's great that me & my future husband can discuss these things & he is so supportive of my journey. We started walking 1 day on the weekend together about 4 weeks ago, it's not much but it just gives us that time together to talk about how I am feeling. So when I think of my friends who have recently got engaged they took pictures of when they got engaged & I realized & I don't want to be overweight when that moment happens in my life. It may sound crazy to some people but not for me. I want to spend the rest of my life healthy & have these milestones in my life be great memories.
Well I think I've put everyone up to speed..LOL.. So I have bootcamp tonight. I am going to try my best to start blogging just 1 day a week.
Have a WONDERFUL DAY!!
