A week in!

Monday, May 20, 2013

I have worked my butt off this week walking up insane hills in my neighborhood. I tell myself with each trek up, that someday I will learn to love these hills. I doubt it though.
The first week back on an exercise regimen after leading a rather sedimentary lifestyle has to be the hardest. But I never gave up, or turned around. I did it. For that I am happy.
I could say, that I want to lose weight to get healthy. That, that is my ultimate goal. But that is not my main reason. I want to look good! There I said it. I dont want to feel self conscience anymore. I dont want to work so hard Im sweating to conceal all of my fat. I want to be comfortable in my own skin again.
I have noticed I look so much older than people my age, and it is because Im fat. When I think of a younger looking person, they look strong, healthy, and full of vitality! That is what i want!
That is my goal, so in essence I guess in a round about way, being healthy is my main goal. I cant get the rest without that first!

    I agree that it would be great to walk down the street without wondering what bad aspect is showing.
