Back again!

Sunday, July 21, 2019

I've taken major steps to turn my life around. I had to get some negative/toxic people out of my life, changed careers, advanced in my new career, and took some vacations. Now I'm fully comitted to getting back into this journey of weight-loss/healthy living. I'm learning how to balance my life (after working 50+) hours a week for the past 8 months. I have maintained what I've previously lost but haven't made progress.

I plan out my lunches for work and eat healthy. On the weekends I eat healthy. After a ten hour shift, I am so tired that I don't want to cook when I get home. I end up eating out on the way home and don't care about what I am eating while I am eating it. I care later. I care when I think about what I am doing to my body, when I have to by the nice shirt in a 3x, when I don't have energy, when my body is sore from normal activies. I care when I want to date but don't have the confidence. I care when I think about my promise to my dad. I care when I think about my future and my kids.

I am here. I am going to do this!

    Love the energy. Take time to plan in achievable steps so it won’t frustrate you with the scale of your goals. Blog so you remember your achievements when the exhaustion comes. You sound like a warrior
