This Is A Blog Title

Well here I am, doing stuff.

First of all, I wanted to thank all of you for the great advice and encouragement on my previous blog! You have no idea how much it was helping. I guess because my would-be-wedding anniversary was supped to be the 12th, I was feeling really, really low. I'm glad to report that that funk or whatever it was is seemingly in the past, and I'm feeling much better!

Today was the first of my much anticipated three day weekend, and I think I've spent it very well: I've been hanging out with some friends all day and am currently downloading a bunch of games for an all-girl LAN party that started at, like, 6pm. Haha but as with all LAN parties it takes hours to get everything set-up, downloaded, and include all the random breaks for food and smokes and whatever. I will say that my food has been absolutely OUT OF CONTROL today, so I'm going to lose all the small progress I've made since coming back from vacation, but I'm in a good mood and feel a day of physical and mental relaxation and indulgence will do me good in the long run.

I guess I'm also preparing myself for... FITNESS. It's really been on my mind lately about how I don't work out at all, and that I've very likely gotten as far as I can with food alone and that it's going to be working out on a regular basis that's going to get me the rest of the way to my goal weight. I know it. I'm accepting it, and I'm currently in the mental preparation process that gets me ready for putting a plan into action. I've really been inspired by a lot of you and your fitness dedication recently, and I think that motivation (and the fact that it's swimming season) is really what's going to get me over this fitness hurdle that's really been holding me back all this time. I look forward to the idea of being able to not only endure sweating and exhaustion but enjoy it. What a concept!

I'm really gearing up to make good decisions this week, too. Short term goals are, after today, to be good financially, with food, and to make a lot more progress in the fitness department. Specifics to come tomorrow!

So yeah. Feeling good. Not doing good food-wise, but feeling good. The changes are coming. I'm seriously ready to take that step to doing what it takes to make the amazing achievements that so many of you already have! So please keep being your amazing selves and posting your progress, because it's doing me wonders!

I hope you all are enjoying a marvelous weekend so far!

    I love the blog title =) I am glad you are feeling a bit better. Hopefully that party was fun!

    It is tough starting to work out and adding it to your routine. Some people only walk. Some just ride a bike. Others go to the gym 3 times a week and just lift weights and have no cardio. We all have to figure out the best type of workouts so we don't stop doing them!! (especially if you don't like working out). I love working out, but I hate that I have to wear certain clothes when I do it. I hate that I am sweaty afterwards and need to change OUT of those clothes I just put on! Sometimes I just watch a Spark video that is 10 minutes long and only do 5 exercises. Other times I just do as many crunches as I can just so I can say I wasn't completely lazy that day! Have fun with swimming!

    I love the positive vibes in this blog entry. I'm happy to hear that you are coming out of your funk. I can only imagine how hard it was to pass by your old wedding anniversary. I get emotional about all sorts of dates, I hate to think how I'd feel if I actually had a wedding anniversary, lol!

    I'm also glad to read that you are warming up to and changing your attitude to fitness. It really is crucial to this whole weight loss and living better business. I still don't enjoy exercise after all this time (sorry if that's depressing, but it is my reality), but I can't imagine my life without it anymore, and know that if I were to stop now the pounds would start piling on again before I knew it.

    I hope you have fun at your LAN party. I confess I have no idea what the LAN stands for, but hope you enjoy it nonetheless, and the rest of your three day weekend too! :)
