I Can Do It....

Wednesday, July 20, 2011

OMG, I just went back and was reading to when I first started blogging....way back to 2006. In 5 months I had made my goal...lost 20 lbs. I made the statement I wasn't going to let myself weigh this much again and here I am...5 years later weighing a lot more. Oh how happy I was when I made goal and how I did it. Well reading my past blogs is making me realize I need to do what I did before...drink my water, do my strength training, and watch my calories. Duh...if I do that I should have no problem getting back to where I was before...right? Course MAYBE my age will slow it down some as getting older you don't burn the calories like you use to when you were younger but I'm going to do this. I want to be able to go and shop for clothes and have that good feeling again that I do fit into the clothes but decide not to buy it because it's not my style. Hahahaha.... I don't have a big problem with exercising...I've always exercised yet wonder how I gain the weight. I do tend to slack off at times but the biggest problem in my weight gain since I do exercise is the right foods and water and I tend not to do much strength training w/ weights other than what Walk Away the Pound or Walk at Home dvds have on the dvds. So I need to change my lifestyle back...I know the problem and I know how to fix it...I need to be determined and I have much more faith by being on a great challenge I started today. It will help...I am sure of it. I always do better if I can be in a challenge and check things off w/ others. So here I go,...I CAN DO IT!!!!!!!!!!!

    Hi Claireese! Great to see you back blogging! Not so great to see what its about. LOL, hang in there. You can do this. I have started lifting heavy weights with Chalene Extreme and love it. course you know I bought a Curves franchise so do that daily also. Have started jogging and really enjoy that too. Change it up a bit, keep it fresh and lets do this again!
