New start, big changes

Saturday, October 05, 2013

Ok, so I feel like I do this all the time. I get the motivation to do something, but then either lose interest or my motivation. I want to make this the LAST time that I will be on this spiral. I NEED to lose weight. I have noticed that I am using my inhaler more, I get out of breath doing the easiest things, and I feel run down and sick. emoticon emoticon

emoticon Starting Monday I am going to be using the gym at school. It is included in our tuition and they are now open until 8pm Mon-Fri. YAY! I will be scheduling the gym into my calendar so that there are no excuses. I used to LOVE the gym and would go everyday. How things change in 13 years. LOL

emoticon After work tonight I am going to be stopping at the grocery store and picking up fruits & veggies. Again, things that I would eat all the time and now I just feel like "Ehh". I want to LOVE healthy food again. I know that when I eat healthy, I feel healthy! This will include drinking more water. I know that I drink at least 8 glasses, but I would drink 12 glasses a day. emoticon

emoticon I don't know when I last stepped on this. Oh, wait yeah I do. A couple weeks ago and it was NOT pretty! So accountability is key. I will have to schedule time on SP and do a blog at least once a week talking about my accomplishments and yes, those non-accomplishments (accountability right?).

emoticon So, here is to a new me, the old me. The one who loved fitness and eating healthy. The one who had high self-esteem and never made excuses. It is going to be a battle, but an up hill one. A battle to prove that with everything going on in my life I can find balance and reach my goals that focus on me!

    emoticon I agree, accountability is definitely the key. I have 2 friends, (who don't actually know each other), and we message every time we exercise. This is the longest I've stayed motivated in quite a while.
