I can’t believe it’s not only 2012, but practically the second MONTH of 2012!
I’ve had the winter blues, for sure. My days have been going something like this: Alarm blares at 5:35. I groan loudly, hit the snooze button and doze off for nine minutes. And then another nine. And possibly nine more. At that point, I’m in a mad rush to shower and get ready, which means I usually either skip breakfast or don’t pack a lunch. I vow to work out after work. After nine hours of work and an hour commute home, I feel like a giant exhausted blob. I microwave a chicken breast and collapse on the couch and watch TV for two hours. Rinse, repeat.
Needless to say, that is no way to live.
So, I am bringing my blog back and I’m bringing my determination back. I miss lifting weights, I miss running and I miss blogging. And I can’t keep saying, “Well, as soon as the weather gets better, I’ll be running and all of the weight will come right off!” The time is NOW.
This year, I’ve lost 4.4 lbs so far. Of course, I gained more than five pounds over the holidays, so I’m still above where I need to be. My goal is to be 215 pounds by the Fittest Loser celebration in May and 199 by fall. There is nothing standing in my way, but me. And it’s time to step aside and watch myself accomplish some spectacular things.
