Moving is stressful=weight gain
Friday, May 03, 2013
Good Morning Sparks,
So March 16 I moved off of the island of Oahu to Southern Maryland. WOW, talk about a huge change in my life. It took about 5 weeks to complete the move into my new house and receive our stuff. In that 5 weeks after I left the island I went out to eat at all the restaurants that we didn't have in Hawaii. I was also sitting in the house a ton because of the cold weather. It snowed the week we got to Virginia.
So I decided once all the boxes were unpacked to make a change to get the weight off.
I live literally out in the country now about a 30 minute drive from any type of place of business. It's very quiet and we have a ton of privacy (which is nice). So I decided instead of commuting to a local gym I would purchase an elliptical.
I did my research and read lots of reviews and watched lots of videos and decided on one I thought would work for me. So yesterday it came in the mail and now I have NO EXCUSES. I also whipped out all my old workout DVD's to do some of those in addition to my elliptical.
When I left the island I weighed 150lbs and when I moved into my house here in Maryland I weighed 160lbs. In five weeks I officially gained 10lbs (cringe). I was getting really depressed about it but today I turned that around.
I just completed 40 minutes on the elliptical and I'm not going to lie it was pretty brutal. I guess because my elliptical is brand new it needs to be loosened up or broken in. It was really hard, much harder than the ellipticals I've used at the gym. But the important thing is I did it. I completed it.
I'm also going back to tracking my food which I think will be a huge step in the right direction.
So I'm putting it all out there and being 100% honest with myself. I can and will lose the weight I just need to focus and keep at it.
I hope you all have a wonderful Friday!
