Time to get serious

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

So I tried this last summer with some luck. When I got back to school I was doing well for a month or two but then everything just got more busy and I got more lazy.

It is time to take control and get serious!

This summer I'm going to have a lot of alone time which means making my own decisions for once. Mondays through Thursdays I will be away from home taking a summer school course. This means, no parents or any of the junk food my dad always buys to tempt me!! They keep saying they want to lose weight but they don't seem to serious about it like ever. I also don't have my boyfriend around very much this summer since he is working full time during the week, and when I go back home on the weekends I will be working.

Don't get me wrong - I love my boyfriend to pieces. But, he seems to always tempt me out of being healthy. I don't think he understands how serious I want to be about this but it makes it so much harder when he wants to buy cookies and fries and pizza, etc.. And okay okay it's not alllll his fault because I do give in and go with it because during school those things are just so much easier after I've had classes and such.

So today I turn over a new leaf.

I went grocery shopping alone and I bought ALL healthy food. No bread, no fries, only one boxed dinner - it's salmon in a dill sauce (I think it's pretty healthy)

I went to the gym and I cycled and ran on the treadmill. I am NOT a runner but I really need to work on it. I can't run across the street without getting out of breath. I've always liked the bike though because it works one of my biggest problem areas - my legs.

So to end this first post, the reason I'm doing this is because I want to feel better about myself. Look good, feel good, right? I hate being an XL, size 14, and over 200 pounds. I need to do this for my health and my future. Like I said I get tired from running way too fast to be healthy. And when the zombie apocalypse happens, I don't wanna die because I've been too damn lazy to eat right and exercise.
