Starting over.... again

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Well, at the end of last summer, I seem to have "let myself go." I guess this will be a battle for the rest of my life. I even gained this weight while training for a half marathon that was ultimately cancelled last December. This whole time up until now, I felt like I really didn't care. I didn't exercise, didn't calorie count and ate like it didn't matter. How sad! I used excuse after excuse not to follow a health lifestyle and look where it got me. "It's too cold to exercise outside," there's a party/holiday," and the one I even hate "comfort food." So bottom line is that I have decided to get back at it again. I started the day after Easter, 4/21/14 and this is the third day in a row that I have been able to stick with it. I have purposely not counted calories and I have walked all three days.
I think I'm finally in the right mindset to get this weight off- again! Here we go......!
