A Year

Monday, December 28, 2009

One year ago tomorrow I started this SparkPeople account.

A whole freaking year.

And in that year I've gained and lost the same 12 pounds, ultimately landing a whopping two pounds down from where I started.

Two pounds.

TWO!? !

So I'm here, rededicating myself to this.

I've just planned a vacation for this June - my first real vacation since June 2007, not attached to a trip I have to take for work but a real honest-to-god vacation full of tourist things and relaxing.

And I've decided I want to lose 20 pounds before I go. That comes down to about one pound a week. Perfectly achievable for lots of people, but kind of a lofty goal for me since I tend to lose in ounces, not pounds. And then gain it back.

Six months of clean eating. For me that doesn't mean deprivation but simply reeling it in a bit. More vegetables. Fewer cookies.

And exercise. Time to get back into some classes and make more of an effort to exercise on the road. Cuz there's gonna be A LOT of work travel in 2010. Even more so than 2009 and that's saying a lot.

So here I go. I could use all the support I can get so if you wanna check in on me every once in awhile, that'd be swell.

    You can do it!!!! I have no doubt you can reach your goal Megan. Especially once you get back on the exercise wagon as you are a gym rat.
