I'm not going to promise that I will be back to regular blogging, because I've done that in the past and it obviously hasn't worked! I will however try my best to blog when I can.
So I'm back at it again.. A whole lot of sitting around and terrible food choices has got be right back to where I started. I was surprised to see 182 on the scale and yet not surprised at the same time. Ever since the photography job that I was doing that had me working crazy hours, it's been a total downslide. I was eating out way too much and not exercising to make up for it. Follow that with more unemployment, then the holidays, then a trip to Alberta to meet my new nephew. Needless to say, I've been very lazy and it's time to stop!
I'm getting back on the wagon slowly. Of course, I got sick last week so that's been holding me back. x_x Got back down to the gym today though and managed a small triumph of running for eight minutes without stopping. I know a bunch of you are probably scoffing at that thinking that's nothing, but I've alwaysss been horrible at running, so it's an accomplishment for me!
So here's to making this my year. I know it's been said before, but I intend to not let it be said again. I'm hoping to get a ring some time this year, so if all goes well I'll be getting married next year. After that, I want to have babies. I just really want to be able to say that I'm proud of myself and I truly respect my body.
I have a couple goals that I'd like to set this year.
1. Get down to at least 150. That's entirely doable.
2. Continue to push myself to the point where I actually enjoy running and don't feel like dying when I am.
3. Lose at least 20 pounds by June 22, the day that we're going back to Alberta, followed by my cousin's wedding the week after.
4. Go bike riding at least once a week once the weather warms up a bit.
5. Try one new recipe a month. (Already made some chicken noodle soup for my cold. :))
6. Continue to strength train so as I lose weight, I'll have muscle definition.
I'm sure I'll think of more, but that's just what I have now. I'm excited to see the weight start coming off again! This time, I want to lose enough to really see a drastic change in my body. Even when I was at 160, my body wasn't anywhere close to where I'd like it to be.
I hope everyone else's year is going great so far! I wish you all good luck in your journeys!
150 days til Alberta! Let's do this! :D
I'll leave you guys with a photo of me holding my new nephew Cayden, the cutest little guy ever! :) (Forgive the big finger at the top of the photo, this is my dad attempting to take a photo with a phone lol)
