Today is the first day of the rest of my life:

And so it begins.... again.

As so many of us have, so have I.

I have fallen off the fence, much like humpty dumpty did, and I am in the process of gluing myself back together.

And so, my friends, I went to the gym today and actually got in a workout, weight training and cardio x2. I actually worked up a sweat and that is more than I can remember for the past year of my gym activities. I did not overeat, and I am pretty sure that I ate under 1500 calories.... which, is probably the best that I have done in like, a year.

Not really sure why I was doing so horribly, other than the excuses that we all like to use to lay blame when we do not want to admit we have a weakened resolve. Yes, the job is stressful, I work long hours, I have a 90 minute commute each way - which is no longer going past my gym on the way home - I'm tired at the end of the day and just want to vegetate and worst of all..... I started smoking again (as soon as I had to move to a different work location, that was the end of the non-smoking! Change like that is not my friend).

So, I find myself with 50 added lbs! Pounds that I do not wish to carry with me all day, every day. If I wanted to take it with me everywhere I would just drag along a full suitcase!! While I have woken up from this nightmare of gaining 50lbs back, I'm not sure that my resolve is 100% As I sit here an type this blog I am desperately trying NOT to get up, go into the kitchen and find something to snack on. It is literally killing me for some stupid reason. But, if I remember back to 2010 -- I spent most nights on sparkpeople - searching, reading, learning, logging my day and meeting all of the wonderful folks here on the site. And so I am once again.

This was my first step. My first step of many. If I can keep my goal for tomorrow, I will go to the gym before coming home from work - which will entail me leaving the house at 6 am..... and not getting to the gym until 7pm. But it can be done. I just need to drive the car straight instead of taking the turn for my home.. :-) Simple, right?

I could really go on and on and on.... and I really want to, but I started this blog too late and I need to get my sleep for a long day tomorrow. If I go to bed now, I will get my 7 hours of sleep otherwise I am setting myself up to fail.

So, until tomorrow my friends....

Good night and thank you for your kindness!!
