Ugh!!! Am getting nowhere fast. I won't even get on the scale because I'm don't want to know if I have crossed into the next decade. I have excuses galore, so many reasons why I "can't", "didn't", "couldn't", etc. None of them are valid (although they trick me into thinking they are, at the time!). The longer I procrastinate on getting started, the deeper I am digging myself into a hole, and the more I put my health at risk, the worse I feel, and so on, and so on......
So, I have to…Continue
My husband just left for work for the next five days and I am putting myself through a STRICT boot camp. I have already given up soda ~ which is truly the most difficult thing for me ~ but I have not been motivated to take the next step in my journey yet.
Today that changes. For the next five days I am eating a little something for breakfast, hitting the gym, and eating in. Those are some big changes for me... I never eat anything until late in the day, having the kids…Continue
My Y just added a new class and I'm loving it. It is half cardio spin (which I have never tried before) and half strength (tabata type) workout. The spin part is definitely something I am going to have to work on. It is a completely different kind of workout than I have ever done before.

I have been thinking a lot about sacrifice. In order to accomplish this monumental feat (and all weight loss is a monumental feat) you have to be willing to accept some degree of sacrifice. Everyone's sacrifice is different. I think it used to be easier for me to sacrifice. My kids are older and demand more of my attention (I homeschool). My husband's job is more demanding and he is home less to help. So now I sacrifice my time, my sleep, my cleanliness of my home. (this one drives me…Continue
But it is so stinking HARD!!!
It's been about a month and I am down 15 pounds I have given up soda and it is been HARD but worth it. I really need to focus on the next step of this journey ~ whatever that may be. It feels great to have that weight off me, and I want to lose even more but I want to make sure that I do things the right way this time so I can make changes that will last me a lifetime.
