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!
