The goal of this blog was to keep myself accountable with the weight loss goals I had set for myself. The PICTURE THAT STARTED IT ALL was such a horrible thing that I rashly vowed to get in shape, look better, be better, yadda, yadda, yadda.
So here I am again regrouping, rethinking and getting my butt in gear.
This post has been difficult to write. I want to be honest but I am afraid of the criticism, judging and responses that I am willfully opening myself up to.
As of Monday, December 27th the scale lives at 189 pounds.
According to my very extensive research (and by research I mean I googled a few sites) I am at risk for a helluva lot of diseases that would end up with me taking a daily regimen of medications.
My BMI puts me in the category of obese and I am a good fifty pounds over my ideal weight.
The rash ‘holy crap’ part of me wants to sew my mouth shut until I get to a more desirable weight.As a reasonable type of gal I understand that getting up and moving as well as adding a few veggies to my diet will be the key of taking off and keeping of the equivalent to a small child.
Realistically I am not hitting the track anytime soon. It snowed, I don’t like being out there in the cold and my schedule is not allowing that. My gym membership is still valid but not for long. It’s only ten bucks a month but as I don’t use it much (at all) it’s such a waste. My library system has a plethora of videos and new Fit Kits that I’d like to check out (self serving as I’d like to review and blog about for work) so I have access to the kits but it’s a matter of actually doing them.
I was told not to make weight loss goals such as by summer I’d like to weight blah blah so I am going to make race goals. I ran participated in a marathon a year ago and have entertained the thought of doing at least a half marathon this year. My friend BeerGeekGirl was my partner in crime two years ago and kept it going. I stopped and have kicked myself ever since. She suggested I sign up for races each month and therefore keep myself motivated. The entry fee is an issue but I think a few times a year is doable. So my goal for the rest of the week:
Check out a Fit Kit from work.
Find a race for March
As far as other stuff…today getting real is my goal.
I am really almost 1/10 of a ton.
I could be a professional athlete.
I get winded walking around, up the stairs and was extra sore after shoveling.
That is all for now.
