216......2 freaking 16!
Monday, December 05, 2016
So, yeah. There it is. Being straight up honest. I don't like it, but I must admit it. You know....I lost 65 pounds when I did this before. My new weight was 139. Do the math. I weigh significantly more than I did when I did this before. Before. Yuck. Why I let it get to this point I have no clue. I am really freaking out about how much weight I have gained. I keep trying to get started again and failing terribly. I'm not really sure at this point how to do it. I did it before....I know. But it's so much harder this time. Before I had been doing well with my diet for 17 months before I started actually trying by adding in exercise (pregnancy, plus a year of breast feeding). This time I got to figure out both.
The bottom line is that I feel like crap and I know it is related to:
1. My weight
2. Not enough fruits and veggies
3. Little to no exercise
It's time I do something about it. I feel like exercise will be the easiest for me to tackle right at this time in my life. Money is tight right now and I'm buying a lot of cheap food. My plan will be for the time being to do 10 minutes a day....every day. It's not much, but it's 70 minutes more a week than I get right now. In one week I will reevaluate this. Food.....I am putting this on hold until after Christmas because I don't want to set myself up to fail. Money will hopefully be less tight at that point and we will have all the parties over with for a while. Now, this is not a free for all. I would like to try to do better, but I'm not going to focus on it or beat myself up about it.
The last part of my plan includes regularly blogging here. Honestly this is one of the most important things to my plan. This helps me more than anything. Just typing about it helps it stay at the top of my mind.
I love you guys. I love you for still being here for more no matter how many times I leave and come back. Thank you.
