Making a Fresh Start
Tuesday, January 03, 2017
It's been almost 3 years since my last post. I've been working through life and focusing on other things. That's ok. I needed to focus on marriage and career plus help a friend through cancer. I regret not keeping exercise in the mix for myself. I had spurts in between but not enough to maintain the weight loss (which I did for a while) but eventually I allowed the weight to creep up. I still eat healthily though probably could do with smaller portions, more fruit (which I love) and a few less sweets and dairy. :) More than anything though, I need exercise to balance my desk job.
Fact stated: I am overweight. I am tired most of the time.
Response: My weight today is most probably at the same as when I started years ago in 2008 but definitely have the sense that I am still fit underneath all of that. So that's good. But once summer slipped away and we are now in New England winter, I really don't like how I am feeling about my body these days and long for the exercise and ease of movement I had in my life before.
Fact stated: I can do something about it... starting with this post.
I'm not starting ALL OVER AGAIN from the BEGINNING just because I am at a high weight. I learned a lot in losing weight last time, and I've continued learning about myself and what I need in these past 3 years.
I am thankful for the past 3 years but now I am ready to move on ... but with some exercise in my life. Went for a walk at lunch today (lunch hour that I typically wasn't making time to take). I tracked my food. I'm drinking water. On the road... to being my better self each day.
Proud of starting again and making this decision to do something about it. How about you?
