A Rude Awakening...(to say the least!)

Tuesday, January 15, 2013

Holy smokes! emoticon

Granted - ever since September my fitness routine has been on the "back burner." I know there should never be excuses but the last few months have been extremely hectic with my mother in the hospital from September up until this past weekend. Also, it was recruitment season at work and I was very stressed out and extremely busy with that. Needless to say, exercise diminished and the pounds packed on! And I mean PACKED ON! emoticon

For the first time in a long time, I stepped on the scale last night and I was SHOCKED! I have gained a considerable amount in addition to adding inches to every measurable body part. I have a very hard time losing weight as it is due to hypothyroidism and now to see that I've let myself go to over 200 pounds, well, there is no excuse now.

I have made an oath with myself to get back on track in 2013. I hold myself accountable for what goes in my mouth from here on out and I am back on Spark People! Lord, give me strength and will power!

I have quite a few 5K runs lined up as well as some other fitness challenges with local groups. Hopefully I will jumpstart that ZING inside of me to lose this extra weight and feel better about me.

    No exactly how you feel. I haven't had the courage to get on the scale since Christmas so not sure how much I have gained. Just printed out all the excuses for not exercising and will commint to getting back on track. My goal is do at the minimum 15 minutes of execise a day. emoticon
