I'm Back!

Wednesday, December 12, 2012

I have been back on the wagon again for 4 weeks. I didn't want to get back on Spark unless i felt like I could stick with it ( I know that that sounds silly but I wanted to be in the right mindframe again).

So a lot has changed we have moved from Atlanta to Ft. Lauderdale and I am working from home (which has not been so good for me on the scale). It has been hard I miss my friends who were like my family, since we didn't have any family near us, I miss my kids school and I miss my home. The good part is that we moved to be close to my in laws because my kids need some extra family support. The other positive is that my FIL wants to lose weight too so we joined a gym together and got a trainer!

So I am feeling great, I've taken most processed foods out of my diet and eating 5 times a day small meals with high protein and veggies. I have been going to the gym 6 days a week for an hour a day and since I work from home and the gym is 1.5 miles away I have no excuses.

I'm running again, I ran 3.1 miles the other day and would love to start training for a 10k. I don't have the running bug again yet (when you are frustrated with something and all you want to do is go run right then) but I'm hoping it will come back soon.

I feel more in control of my life and less like I'm running around just trying to stay a float and eating whatever was easiest. It may be because my kids are getting a little older or that we have babysitters now that allow me to go grocery shopping without the kids, or go to the gym, either way I feel good.

So that's it, just wanted to say it to myself that I'm back and I have no excuses, because I feel best when I take care of myself.
