I'm BAAAAaaaaack!

Monday, December 30, 2013

Hello All,
It's been a crazy few months. I think the last time I was on here was in October! It's sad to say that I've let myself go completely. I've made the excuses that I can eat whatever I want, because I'll just work it off tomorrow, well those tomorrows came and went, and I never worked out. I got up to 170! Right before Thanksgiving I was in the store looking for larger pants, because the ones I had were too snug and I was uncomfortable. I looked at what I was doing, and put all the pants back and said to myself, I will be uncomfortable with the ones I have, and that will be my trigger to lose some weight, eat better, and start working out more! So much has changed in the past month or so... I got laid off from the job I was at, but I was lucky enough to find another job right away, along w/ a 2nd job! My "day" job is only part time, so I no longer have insurance, I got a 2nd job waitressing, to pay for insurance, and for some extra $$$. I lost 8lbs in the first month of waitressing!!! I was so excited! But I did gain a few from over-indulging at Christmas... (Only a minor setback). I am exhausted and spreading myself thin, but at least I'm eating a lot better, and I am seeing results for the most part. I've only been to the gym a few times, but I'm starting to evaluate how I'm spending my time when I'm not at work, or commuting between home and having two jobs. Just last night I was standing and doing squats while folding laundry. (I normally sit on the couch or bed.) I'm trying to figure out how I can modify little things like that, and make an exercise out of it. I was so proud of myself on Friday, I worked for 12 hours, and made myself go to the gym. I didn't do anything crazy, just swam for a bit, treaded water, and jogged back and forth in the pool. (It's better than nothing, I usually just lay in bed and do nothing when I get home from work!) Swimming is my favorite thing to do when exercising. I love it so much, that I don't think of it as "working out". I really need to get back in the swing of things, push myself, find better ways of motivating myself. If anyone has any ideas, I'd greatly appreciate it!
