I need discipline in my life! I love all the freedom I have, but there comes a time, (like when you can't get your last 10 pounds(or so) of baby weight to come off by baking and eating cookies every few days) that I need to make some changes. These are changes that I have done in the past and they work!!! I have lost weight before, so here I go again. I am going to try, that is the key word as I get so busy at home with life, to keep a journal so everyone can look into my misery. Before I lay it all out for everyone to look at I do have some rules.
1. Don't judge! I am considering putting everything out there like my weight and everyday struggles. Once I post those things, it may seem to some that my weight is fine and silly to think I am overweight. To others, they will be shocked and think it's about time I get it together. So, if you are one of my skinny friends, or not :), let's just agree that I need to do this.
2. I have held off posting so much because I am getting caught up in editing. I am just going to throw my thoughts out there, give it a quick once over, and POST! So if you are the grammar police, this blog is NOT for you.
3. Be encouraged! I keep reading a friend's journey on facebook and it is encouraging me.
Well, here I go. I have already started my journey at home so I have a head start. I will try to post a little something everyday. I may not link it to facebook always, so be looking and send me a note if you are interested.
Six months ago I weighed just shy of 180lbs. I of course was pregnant, but it doesn't just melt of anymore at 36 like it did back when I was 24 having babies. I am 36 and I realized today that I have to stay healthy for me and my kids! I will be 54 when my baby graduates from High School. So this journey will not be about how "hot" I want to be, (which I am sorry I really hate that word), but how healthy I need to be. This isn't about vanity, it's about vitality! I want to be healthy, so here I go.
I just actually measured out a TBSP of peanut butter, seriously, that is it?
Check back tomorrow!
