2013 the year of ME!

Friday, January 25, 2013

I've decided I'm going to try to be selfish this year and put me first. I'm going to watch what I put into my mouth and body. I'm going to devote time each day to just me, so that I can workout and ultimately feel better about myself and my body.

I'm turning 40 this year and I'm having a hard time dealing with that. The entire beginning of January was all about celebrating my birthday (which hasn't even officially happened yet!) Talk about jumping the gun! Anyway my family threw a surprise party for me and there was cake, and cake, and some more cake. So we had leftover cake that HAD to be eaten.... of course by me! So I managed to pack on some more pounds in addition to the pounds I packed on over the holidays.
I was down to hovering just over or under 200 back in September. But when I got on the scale last Saturday it told me 216. That was NOT a number I wanted to see. Yuck. So I really got back in the game... I'm not buying new jeans unless of course they are a smaller size!
So since Monday I have been really good about Spark tracking my food, and working out! It was slow going at first on Monday 20 minutes on my bike felt like torture! But I made it through the week.
I'm back to my Green Monster smoothie every AM and I'm also trying a super-fruits juice blend, I have to tell you I feel better.... healthier, I know it's only been a week but... I think I can feel the change. Now if the change will just make it's way down to my waistline, so these pants aren't so tight.... I would appreciate that.
So my motivation level is through the roof right now, and I want that to continue, so I'm back here for support and guidance.
We are doing a family Disney trip in the fall, and I will NOT be the FAT mom there.
