TAKING A STAND!!!
Sunday, February 01, 2009
As the end of 2008 approached, I told myself that 2009 was going to be my year. I was going to start fresh with my exercise and diet plans as of New Year's and I was going to become a whole new me. Once again, I let life get in the way of my plans. I have been very busy and very stressed. I had a lot going on and I feel like life has just been stomping me further and further into the dirt... It seemed like everything was going wrong. Needless to say I haven't stuck to my healthy eating for even a whole day and I have only worked out a handful of times since the new year began. Well, no more. I am not going to let life get in the way anymore. I am not going to be defeated. It is a new month and I am truly starting fresh. Yes, things in my life are still rough, but I have to learn to deal with it better. I need to remember to look at the positive side of things and quit feeling sorry for myself. I especially need to remember that getting healthy will make it much easier to deal with obstacles in my life. So, this is me taking a stand. I am standing up for myself and for my right to be happy and healthy.
My plan for now is to follow the SparkPeople Bootcamp. I think it will be a good way to get myself back on track with a fitness regimen. I will be posting my beginning measurements tomorrow. (After I finish the Bootcamp, I will be moving on to the 30-Day Shred.) The next aspect of my plan is cutting out the pop and getting back to drinking enough water. I've gotten back into the bad habit of drinking pop all the time and I have rarely been drinking water. (I know this is another thing that has been contributing to my fatigue.) I need to get back to a healthy way of eating. I have been gathering up healthy recipes from online and have bought a few good healthy cookbooks. I need to plan my meals each week and be sure to include more fruits and veggies and good carbs and cut out the bad carbs and junk food. Also, I would also like to get back to posting my food and workouts in my blog each day to help keep myself accountable.
If you have any advice or support to offer, please let me know. I would love to find someone to buddy up with so we can try to keep each other on track.
