New Year, New Start, Let's Try This Again!
Thursday, January 03, 2013
I just turned 25 which is really scary. When I was 17 I made the goal to be fit and healthy by 20. When I was 20 I promised I would be by 25. Here I sit at 25, morbidly obese, back to where I started at 340 lbs. I thought I had changed, I definitely learned, but somehow slid back into the hole of unhealthiness.
I flew back January 1st. I used to love flying but having a big butt and squeezing it into a little seat has made me dread it. I push myself as close to the window as possible to make sure I'm not invading the seat beside me in any way possible. On the flight I decided that this was the last flight where I would have to ask for a seatbelt extender. The last flight where my legs would burn from having the armrest dig into them.
I've always liked the 10% challenge, it has been my goal for a while now, I just haven't done anything to get close to it. I make excuse after excuse on why I can't do something different. So I'm making myself one simple goal for this year: TRACK EVERYTHING! Even if I have a horrible day it doesn't matter. I want to be accountable to myself. If I go on a binge I want to have to write it all down. I'm going to pre-track as much as possible to avoid going over my calories.
I knew that Fitbit sync with Sparkpeople for fitness but I didn't realize until today that it does for food too. That makes me really happy that I just need to track once.
I joined the January challenge on Sparkpeople. Today's the 3rd and I haven't done anything yet (I'm using the excuse of travelling). I'm super sore today (have you ever rode in the sled of a snowmobile with someone else and a ton of luggage in -30 C weather for 30 minutes? Not the best experience of my life :P) but I'm not letting my soreness stop me. Since I am behind I am going to do three of the videos today to catch up. I want to exercise for minimum of 10 minutes a day and starting today I am also doing the Quickfire challenge again.
Here's to a new year, a new start, and a new me!!!!!
PS: I've been soda sober for 3 years!!!!!
