January 2017 RESTART
Wednesday, January 11, 2017
WOW, did I really just type 201....7??! Oh my. Where does the time go!? I've dabbled in Sparkpeople over the last couple years so I never completely disappeared. Life has definitely thrown me for a loop several times and knocked many of my plans out from under me BUT I do remember what it felt like to be healthy and exercise and I've missed it EVERY day so I'm going to do my BEST to get back into what WAS my regular routine of eating healthy and exercising. Both of my boys have moved out so things have been different. I'm thankful they feel secure enough to live on their own but I do miss them at home. I have my 14 year-old daughter home with my hubby and I along with 4...yes FOUR, dogs that are like our babies too. All four are rescues!
I looked back to the lowest weight I reached while utilizing the tools here on Sparkpeople and the exercise I did regularly and to sum it all up...literally, (drum roll please) I've gained 18.8 pounds back. That seems like alot but when I think of the 3 years I wasn't able to get back to my regular routine, it's probably not as bad as it seems. Of course, I WISH I had not let so much of what "life" threw at me get in the way of my health but I did and that's that. I'm getting closer and closer to that big 5-0, so I need to get healthy NOW.
So let's do this!!!
