Tomorrow I will begin my last fall term at Western Oregon University. I am excited and nervous.
I am also really happy because for the FIRST time in the last 5 years that I've been consciously aware of my health, and trying to do something about it the right way, Adam is FINALLY on board! I never tried to push him. The most I did was beg him to go for a walk here and there with me. Now? He wants to stop eating the junk, and he wants to get healthy before we graduate, and definitely before we would ever have kids. We are definitely not going to let them eat the way we did growing up. I hope they never have to know what Maruchan is. I am SO happy because now I know that we can completely leave junk out of the house. My goal is to lose at least 70 pounds in 9 months. That's 8 pounds a month, and is totally doable. I am upset because of the fact that I gained this last summer, but I'm grateful it wasn't more. I have been talking about overhauling my diet, and stop eating processed foods. I am doing it. I even planned out a couple day's out worth of meals, and while it's a small start, I'm happy to be starting. I have to make this work because life is only going to get busier. That, and I'm really thinking about the fact that when I get to graduate school, I won't have the time to dedicate 5-6 hours to exercise a week. Now is the time.
I only have one class tomorrow, so I will definitely be going to the gym-probably spend an hour on the stationary bike. I am also going to get back into strength training, and doing my mat exercises while watching television like I used to.
I am SO excited about this.
