Mirror, mirror on the wall....
Monday, August 03, 2009
I went to JC Penney to buy some new clothes for my new job which starts at the end of the month. To recap, I quit my beloved teaching job in Dec. 2007 when my son was getting very sick in day care. I had planned on staying home until he entered school, but with the economy, it was time to go back to work.
So...being home was hard. What do you do when you are bored? Eat. For me, it is snacking. Way too much snacking.
The mirror at JC Penney does not lie. What I saw there was actually a shock. It was literally like someone had taken my head and put it on someone else's body and that body was round and flabby and out of shape. Where did that large behind come from? Oh....
, I have been losing the same five pounds since January and now it is time to go to work...and in a size that I have never been before (that is not pregnant).
So...I believe being out in public will help me stay focused as wearing my pajamas to work is not an option
. It is time for me to get healthy and use exercise as a way to deal with the stress.
I was very skinny when I left my job because I did not eat much from August through December, but even though I was wearing a size 10, I was not healthy. This time, when I slip on a pair of size 10 anything...I want to be toned and healthy and an example to others. Crash diets are not the answer....healthy living is.
So watch me change myself and become a new person...a fit and healthy person.
